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 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 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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

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.

How do you find wedding DJs?

Use Thumbtack to find wedding DJs in your area. Here, you can quickly see which local DJs have the highest ratings and best reviews. You can also see how many times each DJ has been hired, whether they’re responsive and if they’re in high demand.

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. 

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?
Reviews for Lawrence djs

We hired DJ Philly Phil for our Corporate Holiday Party. The overall experience with this Dj was okay. It wasn't horrible but it wasn't great. The DJ's attire was off for a Corporate Holiday Party. He came dressed to the venue in a green sweat shirt and sweat pants. We did have a lot of complaints about the volume of the music. We asked the DJ on numerous occasions to turn the music down, but it seemed as though it got louder and louder. We catered food for our quests and I was a little shocked when I saw the DJ grab a plate of food while he was working. This is something that I spoke with the DJ about prior to the show and he insured me that he would be strictly working. That ended up not being the case. He did have great dance music and he got the crowd up on that dance floor. Our overall experience was the DJ lacked in professionalism.

CR Ryan was amazing! His jokes and DJ style are engaging, his magic tricks are captivating, and his professionalism is top-notch. So many of our guests raved about how impressive the DJ was, and he helped make our backyard wedding an amazing night for everyone! If you're in need of a DJ who can get your crowd engaged, keep the party moving and even has a few tricks up his sleeve... look no further than CR Ryan! You will not be disappointed.

I definitely recommend Dj Philly Phil for any event! He was professional and responsive during the booking process, willing to work with us, and has a lovely personality & sense of humor. He played the perfect music for our event, employees were dancing and bopping along to the beat. Dj Philly Phil made it fun and we will definitely invite him back!

Leo Martin was a great DJ for an UNBEATABLE price for the quality he offers! We were not looking for the $1000 DJs that do the whole shebang and often distract from the reception itself, but rather were looking for a professional DJ who could play great music for a great party as well as provide some logisitical announcements! Leo did just that. With just a bit of guidance from us of our music taste, he played the perfect music - intuiting exactly what we would want him to play, and people were out dancing the whole night. He also took requests, which made our guests happy. He nailed the introductions of the bridal party, dances, bouquet toss, etc. He was super professional and responsive in his correspondence leading up to the day of the wedding and the day itself. Can't recommend him enough! Book this DJ!!

The students really enjoyed DJ Hammer at prom! He was interactive with the students and flexible with the staff. He had them do a dance-off, he played a variety of music and many of which were requested, and he had classes cheer. At one point in the night, one of my students came up to me and said, "I got to give you props, this is a really good DJ." I would recommend him to anyone.

Jason was an incredible DJ! He was the one detail we did not have to worry about. We had a few specific requests, and he far exceeded all of them. Plan to recommend to friends and family! Thank you, Jason!

Logan came early to set up, and had some good background music playing before he was even supposed to start. Played a great mix of music, and even did some line dancing with us! Great DJ at a great price!!

Extremely professional DJ who came to our school dance! He did a great job with selecting music as well as incorporating student requests in real time. The students loved him and were asking if he would come back next year!

Where do I begin! Anthony was an absolute pleasure to work with! From our very first conversation, he eased my anxiety of hiring a professional DJ. Anthony was knowledgeable, and engaging and kept in touch to ensure we were on track for our wedding. We wanted a fog machine for our first dance and he worked tirelessly to track one down for us. On the day of he KILLED it, his equipment was TOP NOTCH and he was able to read our room and play the music accordingly. He was funny, charming and HELPFUL!! He stepped out of his role as DJ and helped lay out food for our buffet! He also offers a photo booth and our guests LOVED IT!! We struck gold with Anthony, he’s our DJ for life!! Oh and the single ladies said he’s easy on the eyes! 😁 Thank you Anthony for being an absolute BEAST at your job, we all could tell you love what you do and tell Ma we said HEY!

DJ Knockout was professional, involved, and kept our wedding party going until the last minute. He didn't simply play music, he mixed it in a fun way so that one song didn't play for too long. He was great, would definitely recommend to anyone!

Logan provided his DJ services at my 50th Birthday party. He did an awesome job. We told what our favorite bands were and he played several of their songs. Loved how he taught the line dances. Will definitely keep him in mind for future events!

Leo was really great to work with; he's very on time, very cooperative, very responsible and easy to communicate with. He's willing to do his best to meet our requirements; he also responded very quick daily, which made my work so much easier. Totally recommend him to be your DJ!

The music was really well spread out during prom. I personally liked it because he is really good at scratching the records and making it flow with the crowd. He didn't play as many slow songs as people wanted but they could've just talked to him or made a playlist before prom. He was a pretty good DJ though

Logan was the DJ at our wedding and he was great! A lot at our wedding did not go as planned or as scheduled, but Logan still went with the flow and did great! We also really enjoyed his dance lessons he did at the reception. He got a lot of people out there dancing, which was something we were afraid would not happen. Thanks Logan!

I do not end up hiring him and he click hire before I made my decision. He want me to pay half just to hold my date but the other Djs I talk to want a full payment the day of my wedding. I went with someone else. I just suggest everyone do they research before they hire him

What can I say about Vincent Holloway. Vince, was all I asked for in our search for a DJ. He paid attention to the detail we asked for and was very attentive to all our questions and request in setting up or event. When I arrived at our event Vince had already been there 3 hours and was set up and ready to do what he was there to do. He helped me set up and he even helped the venue people get our Twitter up and running. Vince is amazing, he's dependable and simply one of the nicest young men I have ever met. Do yourself a favor and search no further, this is your guy!
