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.

Reviews for Cartersville djs
Amanda I.
STOP RIGHT HERE!! This review is long overdue - if you are still looking for an event DJ - you found him! Our wedding was an amazing experience and made all the more unforgettable with a huge assist from DJ Zetha. Seth was absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish. He was very responsive and accommodating, even for my last minute Wedding Day changes!! Seth got the party started and kept the party going. We heard nothing but glowing reviews and family and friends are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding! DJ Zetha was one of the best decisions we made, so seriously, if you are still looking for your DJ - stop. You will not be disappointed! :) Highly HIGHLY recommend!!

We used Ambitious Entertainment for our wedding, and it couldn’t have gone better!! DJ Chris met with us a couple times beforehand and made sure to have all the songs we wanted ready to go when we needed them! Our timeline got a little jumbled but he went right with the flow, and he had no problem playing some of our not-super-traditional music along with some regular wedding classics. For such a stressful day, it was nice to have a DJ that I didn’t have to worry about one bit! Would definitely recommend to anyone, and would definitely use again!!
