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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

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.

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?

DJ P Rock is an excellent DJ. He arrived before the scheduled time to set up the area for his DJ Equipment. At all times during the scheduled event DJ P Rock was professional. DJ P Rock kept the party jumping with his excellent music selection. I would recommend DJ P Rock for any type of event, Birthday, Weddings, Corporate events etc. DJ P Rock is a five star DJ!

I hired Ernie to DJ my wedding ceremony and reception. He was super helpful and professional from the get go, and really gave my husband and I a great impression of who he was as a DJ as well as a person. He was willing to accommodate all our requests as well as some last minute changes, without sacrificing quality of work. He really helped keep our day smooth and stress free. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ!

DJ Sirtified was awesome!!! He arrived on time and got set up pretty quickly. My daughter had a special request for KPOP music and he delivered!! My daughter was very happy with the music and I was impressed how everything just flowed. We added a few things to the program and he was able to accommodate us without hesitation. He's professional, personable and an overall great dj. We will definitely use him in the future for all of our events! Thanks again DJ Sirtified!!!

We had a birthday party for my 13 year old and I must say DJ Motion DID HIS THING. He was professional from the begining. Even with it being a last minute thing DJ Motion arrived early and was set up within 20 mins. He had the flashing lights on his DJ booth and my wife and I was very impressed. He played all of the music my son requested and then some. He DJ'd for four hours and the whole time all of the kids enjoyed. All of the music was parental advisory as requested and we just really enjoyed his service. I would highly recommend DJ motion and I really appreciate his outstanding service.

I don’t know where to start other than AWESOME! The music flow, the lights (please add the lights) the professional, I really could keep going. The party was a complete success because of the DJ, if the music isn’t right it can and will ruin the whole night which is why I say it was a success. Thanks!! DJ ADIQUEST!!!!

DJ Dan'ce Mobile DJ Service was simply the best. The professionalism and customer service was excellent and timely from the first contact. I appreciated Dan's willingness to create the dance playlist for me because I had run out of time. The playlist was exactly what I had described and appropriate for my guest. Dan's service gave my event life.

DJ Steel is the man!!! He showed up at the venue 4 to 5 hours before the ceremony to setup his equipment. He kept the guest into the groove and took suggestions even though he doesn’t need them! My guess loved him and also interacted with him. I can truly say that I will definitely use his services again in the future! I hope he isn’t booked lol. But I would like to say to DJ Steel: Thanks for everything. My wedding would not have been the same without you dude! You are truly one of a kind in the Dj business. Keep up the great work and I’ll see you soon!

Dj P Rock recently played at my daughter's Sweet 16 and it was a huge success. He was very responsive to our emails during the selection process and offered a great deal of services. I especially liked how he catered to our needs and really listened to what we wanted. His price is very reasonable too. He showed up on time and ready to deliver. We had a small agenda with a few tributes and arranged our music selections with him beforehand. He had all of them ready and queued perfectly. Keeping teenagers off their phones is no easy task, but Dj P Rock had them dancing all night. His selections were modern yet age appropriate. He knows his stuff! Thanks Dj PRock. We will certainly be using your services again!

Monte McDowell was great! I had a DJ cancel on me last minute and he responded to my desperate request. He was on time, professional, and his music selection was on point. Due to windy weather, we had to stay inside, however we opened windows while he continued playing on our deck. He was AWESOME! He is highly recommended!

I hired Chris to dj my wedding. My experience was wonderful, at first. However, as we got closer to the wedding, (approximately a month and a half) I sent him an email to touch base with him and waited several days for a reply, but never received one. I then called him, and he answered and said he'd call me right back. He unfortunately never did call back. I sent several emails/texts over the next few weeks, and never heard back. I was generally concerned for him, but also because my fiancé and I already paid our deposit, and our wedding was literally weeks away. After trying to get ahold of him for about 3 weeks, and not hearing back, my fiancé and I decided to move forward and hire someone else, and I emailed Chris once again to let him know of our decision After hiring the dj that actually worked our wedding, Chris finally emailed me back several days later, and apologized. He fsaid he had to go out of the country on a family emergency, but his "associates"were planning on taking care of our wedding. I felt terrible that he had an emergency, however, his associates should have contacted me to let me know that there was an emergency. I ended up hiring the dj we used 2 1/2 weeks before my wedding. He may do well else where, but his communication was an issue, and we ended up not using him, nor did we get our deposit back.

We gave the DJ a thumb drive with music we wanted played. Told him multiple times do not play anything not on this list. The thumb drive was labeled must plays (for songs that had to be played at the wedding), event songs (such as first dance, cocktail hour, fast songs, and slow songs. Not only did he deviate from our playlist and played some dance mix with rap music that we did not like, a lot of our must plays were never played . But most importantly he I had to yell wrong song for my first dance as he had added song weird version of our song for some version, and even though he had months to learn how to do an anniversary dance correct ( start with one year and go up as people's year married is called they leave the dance floor. The couple that has been married longest remains) he did it incorrectly and I had to explain it to him in the middle of my reception. I had already twice told him how it worked before hand. We are not happy.
