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. 

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

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.

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.

DJ Mike was wonderful!! It seemed like everything else in our party was a pain except for the DJ because he was simply awesome. He is professional, prompt, and very skilled at what he does. Not only is everything above true but he was also the best priced Dj I received a quote from. He did such a great job that we gave him a $40 tip. We will def be calling on him again for future events. I highly recommend him!!

I highly recommend DJ Insomnia. I hired him to be our DJ for a high school dance, and not only was he punctual and respectful, he did a great job playing a selection that fit a diverse audience. He did a great job keeping the party energized the whole night. After this experience, I know I definitely will be hiring him again.

Best price given. Great responsiveness and very professional. Willing to work with you on every aspect of the job. Sadly I wasn’t able to fit a DJ into my budget but if I had it would have been this wonderful man!

DJ 2Slick was on site over one hour before the event started. He met all our requests. We wanted to have a mix of songs so we sent him the titles and what we thought we wanted and he made it even better. We even made adjustments while playing it. So accommodating.

Matthew was our DJ for our wedding. We had the best wedding ever and he contributed to that making sure all had a good time. He provided a customized playlist for our guests, lights and MC’d our timeline for significant events such as wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, cake cutting and toasts to the bride and groom. Overall good job and would definitely use him again!

Communication with Mike was excellent! He provided us with a timeline so that everything I wanted to include was included and was very flexible when things were changed last minute. Mike also took some sweet videos of the dancing and posted them on social media, which I enjoyed. His prices were very fair and he listened to our music tastes and played songs that we liked. Hiring Mike as my DJ for my wedding was one of the best decisions I made for the day!
