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.

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 Rique is hands down the best DJ to work with, he's so open to work with you to get the services you want. We hired him for a wedding and had specific needs, when asked about it he was more than willing to work with us to get things the way we wanted. His services are on time and delivers as expected. Would definitely recommend him for anyone looking for a dj for their event. También cabe mencionar que como hispano el sabe hacer que la gente se mueva y crear ambiente en el evento.

DJ Phil was great for the whole experience! We hired him to do a military ball event because of his military background and it paid off. He was professional and willing to show up for the rehearsal to make sure all the events were synchronized. The actual event was great too! He kept the party going and it was a great time.

DJ Cristyle was an excellent choice for my in-laws' 50th Wedding Anniversary. Him and his partner (wife :-) ) went above and beyond to ensure our event went off without a hitch. My in-laws were very impressed by the excellent service they provide. Everyone from 4 to 97 had a blast. Thank you so much for everything!!!

Jimmy B did an EXCEPTIONAL job DJing our wedding reception! He was always incredibly polite, responsive, offered an amazing value and really helped make our day! He had us use this app for our playlist, called VIBO, that made the whole process so easy and stress free! We would highly recommend DJ Jimmy B for any event; big or small!

Joe was professional, easy to get along with, courteous, and extremely down to earth. I hired him several months ago for my mother's 65th birthday bash. He came prepared and was able to retrieve songs that we thought we couldn't. He made sure that he was dressed for the occasion and was super friendly to all of the guests. I highly recommend Joe for any event and if I ever need a DJ in the future I will have him on speed dial :) Thanks Joe for everything!!!
