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.

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.

We couldn't have had a better DJ. He played every request that was given to him, when their were no requests his pick of the songs were better then what the guests were picking. Lights and use of the mic were a bonus! Will definitely use his services again!

I cannot put into words the level of gratitude I have for this company & for Matt and brentano themselves. They exceeded all our expectations we had and absolutely were the life of the party. Matt especially was amazing, he bent over backwards to accommodate our needs in any way he could. By far the best DJ I have ever had the privilege of knowing and was absolutely honored y'all were at our wedding. Thank you!

Brentano made our wedding day really special. He was WAY more than just a "DJ." He was an MC for our whole event. He shuffled and provided instructions to our guests and got everybody up and dancing. He also made the preparation for the wedding super easy and provided us a handout that was thorough on what he needed for us to fill out. He also had a lot of ideas and games that made our wedding standout and made our guests laugh and have a good time. I would highly recommend him.

If you are looking for quality...This is your man!! From the moment I contacted him on thumbtack to the moment, he rolled up and put away his equipment at the end of the wedding reception.... He was non stop professional, friendly and fun! He gave us so much more than we were asking for and our guest commented all night on his professionalism. We expected to hire a DJ but Brentano takes his job seriously and went way above our expectations.... The contact via messaging was seamless, thorough and consistent. Brentano suggested meeting with us in person at a coffee shop to discuss our wedding expectations. He showed up more prepared than we were and was absolutely helpful and brought up issues for us to ponder that we hadn't even thought about.. After our meeting, we were so impressed and actually grateful for our decision to hire him for this special occasion. He showed up at rehearsal, Played the role of wedding coordinator where we were lacking and helped us get our act together. He took it upon himself to contact and make accommodations for the singer we had also hired. During the actual ceremony time, he showed up at the chapel to help make sure all the little things we had forgotten about were taken care of without us even asking or expecting this.... ****Unbelievable customer service and truly cares about making sure your event goes smoothly!**** I highly recommend Brentano for your special event...You will not be disappointed...Worth every Penny and you get MORE than you bargained for. Brentano....You are a Pro and you really made our wedding a success!!! THANK YOU!
