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.

Reviews for Franklin Park djs

DJ Bob B was without a doubt the most accommodating DJ let alone person I have ever dealt with. My wife and I basically winged our wedding but Bob B made sure he was ready for the ceremony and reception. He did this by coming early, taking names on a pad of paper and coordinating other activities throughout the night. He played every song we gave him and added another 3 like songs to the playlist just in case. We had a live band and Bob B was able to relieve them during breaks and keep guests going on the dance floor. The list goes on and I could not be more thankful and happy that DJ Bob B was the chosen one for our wedding. An amazing man and gem to Thumbtack. We had an absolute blast. Thank You Bob B!! -Cesar
