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.

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.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

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?

I would give DJ Flight 100 stars if I could! Our event was complete with the DJ service that was given. My guests had an amazing time, there was a ton of dancing and just all around from given from DJ Flight. Top professionalism, very prompt with response and giving any help needed. He provides all his own equipment and did his own set up/break down. The lasers were AWESOME! I will definitely recommend DJ Flight for future events! :)

DJ Javier was the best DJ that I have hired. He is very professional. He was on time for the party and was ready to go when the guest arrived. He was also a great master of ceremony. The music selection was amazing. He kept the party going. My guest loves his energy. He truly wants to make sure that your day is special. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Orlando

Ernie is THE MAN!!! We decided at the last minute (2 weeks before our wedding) to hire a DJ. I’ll be honest, I was skeptical during the wedding planning process about needing a DJ and planned to just do my own playlist. Had I done it myself, our day just wouldn’t have been the same. Hiring Ernie was sooooo worth it. He made our day go so smooth and everyone had a blast! He was always very responsive to my messages, a great communicator, and worked with me to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it! He even went out of his way to take some videos during our event, which means the world to us. THANK YOU ERNIE!!!!

Our party would honestly have not been the same without DJ Vinny. He made my vision come true after only speaking over the phone once and I’m beyond happy with how everything turned out. He played the best music and was super involved with making announcements (as asked) throughout the party. We had the best time! Would definitely do business again. Thanks so much!

DJ Kenwa was the hit of our wedding! He was able to get our guests out on the dance floor and more importantly keep them there! We had a blast dancing the night away and he interacted with our guests so well! He MC’d for our reception and ceremony and it was money well spent, you will not regret hiring him for any event that you have but especially your wedding! He is so detailed and attentive, something we so appreciated on our big day! Highly recommend!!!
