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.

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

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 could not be happier with DJ Tabasko Spectacular!!! 👍👍👍 He's so likeable too and extremely accommodating. I requested a wide range/mix of music including the most current dance hits, along with a few classic favorites and Latin Dance 💃 hits - he provides it all. Honestly the party is a Hit because of DJ T!!! I will definitely book him for more events.

Slable provided DJ, MC, and uplighting services for our May 2015 wedding. Just as a reference point we are a mid-twenties couple and they did a fantastic job of sticking to our playlists and taking on guest requests. They were professional and easy to work with; they went the extra mile to ensure that all names were prounounced correctly and they made a valiant attempt at keeping the reception timeline on track. We would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for for DJ services!

DJ Wah-Heed was phenomenal! He was prompt and ready to party. His interactions with the comedians exemplified his years of experience. He also captured the mood if the crowd with his selection of music. Great experience.

We got married on June 3, 2017 and looked at many DJs before we selected John at Perfect Harmony. We found many DJs were overpriced and cheesy. John was a great value exactly what we wanted. We had about 60 people that ranged from 9-81. We only had one requirement for John. Ensure that people had fun! Our teenage children on the dance floor helped him out a bit but he was great with song selections and matching the music with the crowd. I would definitely hire John again.

We recently hired Good Vibrations as the DJ for our New Years Eve party. I must say that the experience was all positive. Vinny was quick in responding to any queries and was very professional to deal with. Marquez was a great DJ. He was on time to set up the equipment, kept our group engaged and played great music. We provided him a list of Indian songs that he was easily able to integrate into his song list. We had a great time and highly recommend Good Vibrations. Thanks for making our New Years Eve party a memorable one. We will certainly hire them again!

Donnell was amazing! He is very easy to work with! When we met him for the first time he listened to all of our concerns and was able to answer all of our questions. A DJ needed to be booked for my sister's wedding reception ASAP and he was so accommodating and understanding. Not to mention his prices are great! Everyone at the reception loved him! He took requests and was able to get a vibe of the kind of music our guest enjoyed. Certain things had to be changed around in the reception schedule but he went with the flow and everything went smoothly. The guests raved about him and kept coming up to me saying how great of a DJ he was! If you need a DJ for your event with really affordable prices, look no further because he's your guy. I will most definitely be recommending him to all my friends and family and will be hiring him in the future for any events that will need music entertainment! I know I've already said this a million times but thank you Donnell! We truly appreciate you!!!

I would recommend Donnell to everyone looking for a professional, well priced and talented dj in the dc metro area. He was on time, kept our party moving, and we didn't have to worry about anything. He was also very patient and listened to requests. 5 stars!!

DJ Child was awesome! I’ve hired many DJ’s in the past and he was by far the best. He responded to me rather quickly and was available to DJ for a high school grad party held outdoors that was scheduled in less than 10 days. The teenagers and adults enjoyed his music, he was engaging, fun, and played a great mix of music to accommodate the crowd. I wasn’t able to provide him a playlist or selection, I just gave him an idea of the crowd and he took it from there which was fantastic! Both the teenagers and adults have been sharing how good he was! He was punctual, answers texts and emails promptly, reliable, and the cost for his services are very very reasonable. DJ Child who’s name is Phillip is very personable and truly a great guy, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with Phillip, who we now consider our new friend! I will definitely be hiring him again for future events and will also be highly recommending him to others. Thank you so much Phillip for helping us to celebrate our Class of 2020 High School Seniors!

DJ Romes is the "BOMB"! He was very professional and did an excellent job for our High School Graduation party. He was a true delight and our guests couldn't say enough positive things about him. He was prompt, responsive, and accommodating. He was so much fun that I can't imagine hiring anyone else for any of our future parties :)

We hired Xen Live for my mother in law's 80th birthday party. We had about 50 people and wanted to have live music to shake things up. Our DJ arrived on time (an hour before the party) to set up and do sound checks. We wanted oldies style of music given the audience and what he played was perfect. It was exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend Xen Live for your special occasion.

We used Larry for our school auction, which was a formal event and took place at a local country club. I spoke to Larry several times before the event, most of the contacts were initiated by him. He wanted to make sure all of our needs were met and questions were answered. He was the DJ for our event and did a great job with this, choosing music that fit the mood for our Mardi Gras theme during dinner hour and great dance options when it was time for us to dance. I gave him very little direction at the event because I was busy running the auction portion of the evening and he was fabulous at taking the initiative and knowing what to play when. Larry also took on the role of live auctioneer, which he had never done before but was eager to try, at no additional cost. He inquired about our list of auction items ahead of time so that he could be prepared and do a good job for us, which he did. He allowed us to utilize his karaoke screen and projector for our slide shows during the evening, again at no additional charge. He was totally flexible setting everything up and moving it and was so generous and professional during the entire evening. He even kept the music playing over our set time since people were still dancing during auction checkout. He could have shut everything down right away, but he was more concerned about us having a good time and being happy. I would highly recommend him to DJ any event! He went above and beyond what most DJs would do for a customer and we were so pleased with his work and help at our event. Thanks, Larry!
