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.

Chris was an amazing DJ. He always answers emails quickly during the planning process. On our wedding day he arrived early and worked great with the staff the venue to set up for the ceremony and reception. Our ceremony spot had to move due to storms but Chris was flexible and still had everything ready on time. He did a great job keeping the party going and even announced our shoe game for us. I am very glad I choose Chris! He was great and was very affordable.

Vince DJ'd our wedding in December. He was very flexible, professional, accommodating, and knew how to work the room. He provided equipment and sound help for both the reception and the ceremony. Most of all, his music mixing and selection was outstanding! Literally the best DJ we have ever heard, and all of our guests kept telling us how amazing he was. Hibachi Studios was one of our best vendor decisions for the wedding!! Great price, great person, great service. We would highly recommend him to anyone!

I recently had Rockin Times do my wedding and photo booth.I have to say the pricing was great. Simona did a fantastic job setting up my timeline. Brian and Ron did a wonderful job with the music theypplayed. The photo booth was a hit with everyone.My friends and family are still talking about how much fun they had. They were all very professional and did everything they could to make my day perfect. I highly recommend them to everyone who needs a .dj or photo booth. These guys are wonderful and I can assure you that they will do a fantastic job for you. Thank you Brian, Ronnie, Emily, and especially Simona for all your hard work. You all made our day perfect in every way.

The music is the pulse of a wedding. Picture Perfect Mobile Sound and Photo Booth brought heart to the entire proceedings. Planning a wedding is filled with too many details. Simona helped me tremendously. She helped me develop a workable schedule for the evening. She asked me questions I never would have thought of. She got back with me immediately throughout the entire process to clarify. Brian the DJ was ready with all my crazy musical requirements. He worked alongside my soloist. He nailed the timing of the resessional. They worked in concert as the MC to make the night move Smoothly. Both read the crowd well and adjusted accordingly. The guests loved the goofiness of the photobooth. You have to give your guests something to do besides just dance. The night was magical in a large part because of Picture Perfect. Plus they have cool lights to strike the mood. Whether your wedding is chi chi (like mine) or low key, you’ll need help pulling it off. I highly recommend the experienced Brian and Simona of Picture Perfect to provide all your musical needs for your wedding.
