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 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. 

Get cost estimates from the best DJs near you to find out how much you should expect to spend for your event.

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 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.

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?

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.

At first I was skeptical to hire JMC, compared to the other quotes/and reviews received from other Dj's- But I am so glad I did !! My husband has hired dj's before from this service, but this time allowed me to decided how to go about our customer appreciation event- Since the other Djs in the past couldn't quite deliver the kind of service we was looking for . JMC was very flexible on the schedule change - because we had to reschedule our event for the following day- The Dj for the event was fun! and entertained the guest very well -and played a variety of music for the guest ! We will diffidently keep JMC in our books for all our events in the near future - Thanks for making this event a great customer appreciation event !

Thomas was a good DJ for the reception, but was a little under prepared for the ceremony. He fixed the problems and was a go for the ceremony. Other than not being able to get our microphones to work it went without error. Not his equipment, was another source, but they worked in pre-ceremony but not during.

Big thanks to Excellent Entertainment! Our DJ (Lon/Lan?) was awesome! At first he had me worried because he asked to confirm things we had reviewed, but then I realized that he already had all of the information about our choices written down (like the order of the bridal party), and our DJ was just checking to make sure we didn't have any last-minute changes so that everything went smoothly. Chris was incredibly thorough in the planning process and patient with us, even when we didn't get back to him in a timely manner. He was also very sensitive to our exact wants and needs for our event, making absolutely sure the event went exactly as we wanted. We got numerous compliments on our DJ from friends, many of whom had been to many recent weddings and said Lon was the best they had seen yet. Our close friends said that our reception was a blast and the most fun out of the last 7 weddings they'd been to. These guys are a little more expensive, but their experience really makes the difference.

Hired DJ Intel for my daughter's wedding reception and so glad we did!! He was professional, reliable, personable, energetic, and a very talented DJ/MC who kept the dance floor full all night long. From the youngest of guests to the oldest; we were sweaty, tired, had blisters on our feet, and the groom even ripped his pants - but we never wanted to stop dancing. It was just too much fun and songs were too great to miss out on! Song selection was definitely spot on. Transitions between songs were unique, done live and seamless. Equipment was state of the art. It's been 3 weeks since the wedding and we're still getting compliments about what a great job he did and what a great time everyone had. Would absolutely recommend!! (Go ahead, send him an email. You won't regret it!) Thank you, Antwon, for an AH-MAY-ZING night!! You were the perfect match for Julianna and Sam and gave them the night of their lives!

Tia is one man that can make people get up and dance. He keeps the music rolling. He got 3 leads at mt party from the HOA Board members, friends. All because he is sooo good. He is polite, truthful, friendly, so nice. We were lucky to run across him. If you are looking for a good DJ call Fuzion Entertaiment, you will not go wrong. I am very satisfied with his hard work. Thank you so much we all had fun. I recommend him to everyone. Janet and Harold from Ky.

He was amazing. Super calm. He did everything right. I was supposed to get him the song list and I kept forgetting, he picked out some great songs. He listened to everything we wanted. He really helps pull everything together. The songs were magical. We all got up to dance. It was our wedding but my whole family loved having him with us. I would definitely hire him again, and tell all my friends. I really could not have picked a better DJ. So down to earth, and he really cared about us.
