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.

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.

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?

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.

DJ Iggy deserves 6-Stars. DJ Iggy was hired to dj a school dance. DJ Iggy was great with the children and parents; at the end of the night no one wanted to leave. The children enjoyed themselves and cant wait for him to dj the next dance. The principal and staff were so pleased with his professionalism that he will dj the dances this school year and next. If you want a DJ who will exceed your expectation and keep everyone dancing DJ Iggy is your guy.

Dj Sammy was an excellent DJ for my family reunion. The Adults and children both loved him. He really knows how to read a crowd. Don’t try and Dj your own party, call the professional -DJ Sammy.

I have to give a HUGE shout out to DJ Duss who saved the day! A few days before my brother's baby shower our DJ cancelled on us so I needed to find a DJ ASAP. I came on the Thumbtack app and searched for DJs and luckily found DJ Duss. He is very professional, his price was extremely reasonable, and he kept the vibe good. If you live in the South Florida area and are in need of a DJ, I recommend reaching out to DJ Duss for your next event.

I had a good experience working with this DJ for our corporate meeting in Miami. Communication, booking, and planning were great. The DJ met our very specific requirements when it came to set up, music and attire. This DJ is willing to work with various budgets and offers additional services like audio recording. I will definitely work with this DJ again. ​

Dj Omar was a great DJ at a super reasonable price. He stayed about an hour and a half longer at my wedding and didn't charge anything extra for it. Would definitely recommend!

If your looking for a DJ, I highly recommend DJ Font. Our event was an outside family event for approx. 750 guests. After speaking with Manny I felt confident he was the perfect DJ for our event. He was kind, courteous, friendly, very responsive, knowledgeable to all types of music tends and professional. We vaguely discussed music selection prior to our event. I left the music to him and he did not disappoint. He knew exactly what to play to keep the crowd engaged, it was spot on. Everyone had a fantastic time! If your on the fence trying to choose which DJ to hire look no further! DJ Font will not disappoint. We will definitely book DJ Font for any future events. Thank you again, Manny!

DJ Mikey is the ideal DJ to work with! He was on time (early). Plays what you want and is also open to sharing his expert advice... without being pushy. It was a great experience and I plan to work with him on a regular basis.

I called Dj Font for my daughters 13th birthday. He was so kind and professional on the phone so I knew right away he was our guy. He showed up early, set everything up and was ready to go. I really didn’t have to tell him what songs to play as he knew how to get the party jumping. The kids loved him! He was so friendly and nice and my daughter was so happy. Many thanks to DJ Font!! If you’re looking for the best DJ for your next event, DJ Font is your guy.

I want to start by saying it is very hard to find a DJ whom can rock a teen party and that the teen will actually say "wow mom I really liked the DJ" he did such a great job at my daughters party that she will only hire him to DJ her parties! we are looking to hire him again this year.. he can definitely get everyone to have a great time!
