Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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?

TJ was very nice and my daughter and her friends enjoyed having him as the DJ for her party. The next time I have any kind of event I will be hiring him again. I will also make sure that all my friends and family only use him as their DJ from here out.

Everything for our wedding and reception could not have gone better and it is all due to DJ Kenny. At first we only asked for him to do the reception and when we decided to do everything from the wedding to the reception in the same location I was concerned about the wedding music. I had nothing to worry about. Kenny had it covered. I gave him my songs for specific times and he made it happen. I was so happy with everything he played that evening. Our guests enjoyed the music and so did we. If you need a DJ that will work with you, provide an excellent service, and has a great time doing what he does, DJ Kenny is the right man for your job. If I have anyone looking for a DJ, Kenny will be the one I recommend.

Joe provided the music for an event at our college. The students, faculty, and staff have given me feedback on how much they enjoyed the music Joe played and the fun atmosphere Joe helped to create. I highly recommend that anyone who needs a DJ hires Joe for their event. He is wonderful to work with before, during, and after the event. I will definitely hire him to DJ all our upcoming events.

I was concerned about finding a DJ over the internet, but my experience was outstanding!!! He exceeded all of my expectations and was very professional! His light show was outstanding... He had a challenging job to get 13 year olds to actually "dance", but he overcame that obstacle! My son had a great birthday because of him.... his friends were talking about it the whole week following it! Marcel made a wonderful memory for my son, and since he was the most reasonable DJ I could find, I would definatey recommend him, and will definately give him a call in the future!!!! :)
