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.

DJ Trakboy was cheerful, positive, responsive, accommodating, and professional. He did an amazing job and kept us dancing all night. I will definitely be using him again.

John was our DJ for our wedding last weekend. He was an absolute pleasure and breeze to work with! From the initial consultation to picking our songs, he was helpful and courteous. Plus, he had EVERYONE up and dancing at the reception, which isn't always the case at weddings. Thank you, John for a wonderful wedding reception!

We used A+ DJ for a Winter Dance (Daddy/Daughter Dance) for the local elementary school. What a wonderful surprise!! Dan was fantastic! He had age appropriate and censored music for the kids and took requests from the girls and Dad's. He got the girls dancing and did not pressure the guys - which many were grateful for not being called out. Definitely looking forward to next year and asking Dan to be part of our Dance!

We were very happy with Spin1DJ service. Larry kept the energy going with the great music that he had. He had such a great selection of music. The kids were ages 13-14 and it took a while to get them warmed up, but Larry dud a superb job. Would recommend him to everyone. I'm so glad that I checked out Thumbtack for a DJ. I wouldn't have found him without it.
