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.

I would recommend Standing Ovation to anyone looking for a DJ service! Joe provided karaoke and DJ services for my husband's 40th bday party, and did an awesome job! I received many compliments on the DJ after and during the party! Standing Ovation comes highly recommended by me!

We hired Angels With An Edge to be the DJs and MCs for our wedding reception. We did not have a large crowd (40 people) and were a little worried about if people would be dancing and what music would be best, but the DJs handled everything well. They got people dancing and played background music when we needed it. We don't listen to too much music so it was difficult for us to come up with a playlist, so the DJs did that for us and they did a great job. They were able to adapt to how our crowd was reacting. This was important to us and we do not think things could have gone any smoother. We would recommend them.
