Your burning questions: answered

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.

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?

Thank you DJ P Rock! He passed the party on to a colleague, DJ Muzic Warfare, and he was absolutely amazing! The music and the interaction made #AATHEGLOWUP an exciting and fun party for those 13 year olds. I recommend that you link up with DJ P Rock and his colleagues. We were not disappointed!

Long story short, HIRE HIM! DJ ToneyStone did an amazing job at my wedding reception a few Saturdays ago. He’s professional, experienced, and works so well with you (and the crowd) before and during your event. Seriously, you can count on DJ ToneyStone to get the job done and done with excellence! For those who want to read more, here’s it all: Literally about two weeks before the wedding, my (now) husband and I decided we needed to get a DJ. We were originally going to just go with a Spotify playlist, but we realized we really wanted our guests to be engaged and entertained before and during the reception (especially as they’re waiting while we’re taking pictures with the wedding party and family). I cannot say this enough, but this investment was seriously the best investment ever! Granted, my dj-ing knowledge is extremely limited, and I’ve never had to secure a DJ before. It’s one of those things where I’m so used to going to events/receptions, and a DJ is just there doing their thing. But when you’re the one in charge of securing one, you of course want to make sure you’ve got the right person! So, I naturally asked alot of questions. DJ ToneyStone was very friendly, helpful, and went out of his way to assure me that he’s got it all covered. And for me, that was comforting to hear, especially as I was taking care of other last-minute details for the wedding. DJ ToneyStone was very prompt from the get-go with all our communications. The contracting process was very simple. He spells everything out and makes sure you’re both on the same page. And his rate is VERY fair. On the wedding day, he showed up on time, as contracted, and totally rocked the reception! My husband and I were still taking pictures when we heard music start up in the reception area. For a split second, we were just dancing and rocking back and forth. Then it hit us, “Hey, that’s our DJ! This is OUR party with the cool music!” It was then we KNEW this was definitely one of the best decisions made. We were just so proud! And yes, we DANCED! The music was all on point. Folks were dancing and just having a great time! Adaptability-wise, DJ ToneyStone’s gotcha! Before the wedding day, we confirmed songs my husband and I definitely wanted played (i.e. first dance, groom/son dance, etc.) and also just the theme/style of music for the reception. Right after the wedding ceremony, we coordinated with him last-minute to announce the wedding party and introduce us for the first time at the reception. And he totally did not disappoint. There were some moments at the reception where we just needed some time filled or announcements made. All we needed to do was just run it by DJ ToneyStone, and he took care of it like the pro he is! Also, we totally didn't think about music for certain things like cake-cutting or bouquet/garter toss. No worries, though. He totally had it! Trust me, DJ ToneyStone is THE. GUY. for your dj-ing needs. He can do it all and then some. I promise you, his experience is evident; and throughout the process, I just had this sense of calm and peace. That’s because I just knew I made the right decision! He’s good people, and you can tell he’s just wanting to make sure everybody’s having a good time.

Jason will blow you away with his amazing ability to dj and keep the party going. When I say going I mean till late in the morning! He's professional and very attentive to what music needed to be played. We asked for electronic dance, hip hop and Bollywood-he delivered out of the top drawer on all. Thank you Jason and looking forward to using you again!!

Kevin was the DJ for our wedding last month and I have to say that he did an amazing job! Kevin gave us several suggestions about our reception schedule and some of the choices we had made, and we are so thankful that we listened because it made everything so much smoother and well run. He knows what he's doing in all aspects of working with weddings. Our experience with working with Kevin was a joy from start to finish. I continue to get compliments on how much fun everyone had and how much they loved all the music that was played. He played a wide variety of music, which was perfect for our very diverse guests. Overall I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. His energy, kindness, creativity, and experience made him a crucial piece to our wedding, and hope he can do the same for you.

I hired 927 Music for my daughters Sweet 16 party. Overall the experience was good. I was able to meet with the DJ and discuss everything we wanted early and I provided him with a list of songs my daughter wanted. She is into alternative music so we wanted to make that clear early on. Unfortunately, a lot of the music she specifically wanted was not played. I wasn't sure what happened because we provided a printed out list and sent the info via email very early on. I guess the list were lost because we were asked a few days before the party to send the info again which we did. But, the day of the party as I'm running around trying to get everything in order I was told a lot of her songs could not be played. I even asked could other songs by the same artist be played then and was told yes. At one point there was jazz music being played and some other type of music that we did not request. There was a good amount of hip hop played which we asked to weave in between her alternative music. Most of the party goers were into the hip hop music so the dance floor was full from time to time but my daughter was not happy at all that her music of choice was not in full swing which was disappointing to me because she can not take that night back and do it again. Overall, Robert was on top of everything except for the requested music. She may have got 7-8 songs of hers played in a 4 hour time frame.
