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?

It was a pleasure having Ed as our DJ for our daughter's Sweet 16 Birthday Party. Whenever I sent him an email, he responded right away which I appreciated. He was very helpful with her music list and very accommodating the night of the party. The kids danced and had fun which tells you he is a super DJ. Have shared his name with a few friends already and will have him again when needed. Thank you for doing a great job Ed!

Ed was the best DJ ever! We decided to hire a DJ a month before the wedding. The guests were a mix of young/old and spanish/english speaking. Ed was able to mix spanish/english songs that we selected to create an atmoshere that kept the dancing going non-stop. Everyone is still texting/emailing us how much fun they had! Ed was so professional and we meet several times prior to the wedding to make sure that he knew exactly how the bride and groom wanted their day to be and he delivered. The smiles captured on the dance floor-priceless.

Ed did an incredible job with our reception! I had contacted him right when we got engaged (2 years before our actual wedding) and he always stayed in contact with us! He is super friendly and funny. He's very helpful with selecting music and he's great with the crowd! I will recommend him to anyone I know that's needing a DJ! So glad we chose him! Our reception was perfect.

He was a very good DJ! He arrived and set up on time. He was very professional and listened to any personal requests. He let us borrow the microphone when we needed. He had a good lighting and speaker set up. Most importantly he played a good variety of music and took our requests. We had people on the dance floor all night and it was hard to get them off of it! I recommend him and am sure we will use him again.

In May 2013, Ed was the DJ for our all class 8th grade graduation party and the kids had a blast!! They never left the dance floor, except to get a drink, and all left the party with big smiles. Ed gave us a public school discounted rate, although ours is a private school. Our budget was very tight and that helped tremendously. We will definitely request his services every time in the future, and I most certainly recommend him to everyone. Very polite, kind, and friendly!

Ed Dunn! The great man who was behind the success of our wedding day. In music, it was a way more difficult wedding to start with because me and my bride being Sri Lankan's we had a multicultural wedding with Sri Lankans, Indians, Americans + more. With all those boundaries and obstacles Ed was awesome and he and only he made our wedding a success! Apart from music, Ed helped me to create the timeline, and with all the other small small details as well. Although it wasnt his entitled job, he made everything go smooth as planned! Me and my wife are so greatly in debt for him and yes, if anyone wants to go for a DJ, Ed is THE MAN! Cheers on your future Ed. Lets keep in touch!!!

Ed is THE BEST!!! If you need someone who is qualified to handle any type of wedding, Ed is your man. I was ecstatic to use Ed Dunn for my wedding after his successful DJ skills & music selection got the whole crowd to dance at my brother's 300+ wedding. He has an uncanny ability to connect with the Bride & Groom, along with family members, which creates a personal touch into every aspect of his services. I remember personally stressing out about what the time-line of the wedding/reception would look like, so Ed went out of his way to make a spreadsheet which highlighted all of the pertinent details of the Ceremony & Reception. His Bose speakers played beautifully for the ceremony courtyard, along with the sound systems that allowed participation from our outdoor patio bar to the dance floor under the 120ftx40ft tent for the reception. BTW: We loved him so much... we made him the minister for our ceremony. THANK YOU ED! Taylor & I are very blessed to have chosen you.
