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?

DJ INSOMNIA IS THE PERFECT DJ! My wife and I hosted a OLD SOUL "Blue Lights In The Basement Social Event" last night with about 50 of our friends and acquaintances, and let me tell you something- DJ INSOMNIA TURNED IT OUT! His playlist was perfect, his MCing was perfect....heck, even his DJ BOOTH- with all the lights and speakers and stuff- was PERFECT. He brought a friend along to help with some of the grunt work and security, and even HE was a reflection of DJ Insomnia's high standard of quality. My wife and I, and ALL OF OUR GUEST absolutely LOVED him. But in my opinion, what is even more special about DJ Insomnia is his CHARACTER. He's a good, solid man of the highest integrity, and I have endeavored to recommend his services to any and all who are in need of a REAL DJ. My advice is that anyone who reads this review should IMMEDIATELY hire DJ Insomnia. You WILL NOT regret it.

I loved working with DJ Insomnia. He's enthusiastic and knows how to hype up a crowd. I hired him for my sorority formal event at the last minute and he responded very quickly! I will definitely be asking him to DJ at another one of our events!

Dj P was fantastic and very willing to work with our group as they wanted to have a lip sync battle. Thanks for being so flexible and bringing in extra things like lighting.

Chris and his colleagues were great!! I have absolutely zero complaints. Everything Chris says they will do, they do it. They know how to work the crowd and get everyone in the mood! I have only one suggestion and that is for you to bring business cards because everyone loved you all and kept asking us where we found y'all at. If I am in need of a DJ for future events, I already know who to call first. I highly recommend ATL DJ's, specifically Chris! Thank you so much, tell your staff and wife I said thank you and hello! Saturday was a success partly because of you guys!!!!!

DJ Ernie was a great communicator from the first bid. He worked to study and refine our playlist and reall tried to understand our goals and the tone of our crowd. He was punctual and friendly . Great job of reading the crowd as the night went on and knowing what songs to play at certain key times. He was not overly inserting himself into the program - but was just right with his announcements and crowd encouragement. His equipment was nice- again - just the right amount of lights for my tasteful event . He took my vision and made it happen! I would hire him again any day!
