Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a cheap DJ?

To find a cheap or affordable DJ for your party or wedding, search for local DJs near you and ask for free cost estimates from several of them. While some DJ profiles may provide an automatically generated starting cost, it’s important to contact the DJ to get an idea of how much your particular request will cost. This also gives you the opportunity to ask them other important questions and make sure you are a good fit.

How do you book a DJ for a party?

To book a party DJ, start by comparing local pros in your area. Check out their ratings and reviews to find out: 

  • Are they professional?
  • Do they show up on time to set up for the party?
  • Do they know how to feel the energy in the room and adjust the music accordingly?
  • Are they friendly to guests and take song requests?
  • Do they specialize in the genres you want (pop, Top 40, hip-hop, etc.)?
  • Do they have experience playing at your type of event (weddings, birthday parties, etc.)?

Whenever possible, watch videos of their performances. 

Your last step is to contact three to five different DJs near you to ask them questions and get price quotes.

How much is a DJ?

When you hire a local DJ, expect to pay roughly between $300 and $800. But be aware that the actual price will vary based on several factors, including the length of the DJ’s set and how much of a presence they need to be. Larger venues can drive up the cost, as this requires more equipment, soundchecking and setup. Adding extras like confetti, fog, light shows and black lights also adds to the cost.

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

How do you find wedding DJs?

Use Thumbtack to find wedding DJs in your area. Here, you can quickly see which local DJs have the highest ratings and best reviews. You can also see how many times each DJ has been hired, whether they’re responsive and if they’re in high demand.

Why do DJs ask how many guests are at the wedding?

It’s helpful to let your DJ know how many guests will be attending the wedding so they can ensure they have the right sound system and equipment. They may also ask more questions about your guests so they can ensure they have music that caters to the crowd. 

What questions should you ask wedding DJs?

To ensure you hire the best DJ for your wedding, ask these questions:

  • Are you available on my wedding date?
  • How much do you charge, and how do you set your prices?
  • What’s included in your rate (e.g., set up, clean up, etc.)?
  • How many weddings have you played at?
  • Do you have any references I can contact?
  • What kind of music do you specialize in?
  • Do you provide your own equipment, sound system, speakers, etc.?
  • Do you provide any other services (e.g., photo booth, lighting, etc.)?
  • Can guests request songs?
  • Will you accept a “Do Not Play” list?
  • How early would you arrive at the venue to set up?
  • Do you take breaks throughout the event? If so, how many and for how long?

Jay is awesome! Super nice guy and a great DJ. So many of our guests have commented about how great the DJ was and I couldn't agree more. During the planning stages Jay got back to me within minutes of an email or text. I really appreciate that. Jay was very prompt showing up the day of the event and played great music until the very end. I would recommend Jay to anyone looking for a great DJ!

Our thanks to Harry Wright for performing at our 50th Wedding Anniversary party. Mr. Wright arrived early, played to the demographics of the group and performed many interactive activities. His willingness to please and to make the event a success is most appreciated. Again, our thanks to "The Wright DJ" for a job well done!

Harry Wright, "the Wright DJ", was Great! He coordinated the timing, announced the next move, played a variety of music, made everyone feel welcome, and brought hula hoops for the kids! He is pleasant, personal and professional. Our guests also enjoyed Harry. Everyone had positive things to say. The day was a wonderful experience all around!

Neal was absolutely amazing! He showed up on time and basically was like a chameleon there. He changed up the music as requested and took requests without missing a beat…literally. He had something for the younger ones AND older ones. His professionalism was impeccable. He even gave out light up balloons, shades, and wands that everyone loved. Neal went above and beyond the call of duty and was very kind while doing it. If you’re looking for a DJ, Neal is DEFINITELY an excellent pick. We got wayyyyy more than we ever expected with him. Thanks Neal for making something so important to us turn out PERFECT!!!
