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.

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.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

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?

DJ Joe Smooth did an amazing job! I could not have had a better DJ. Joe is very professional and makes sure you are happy and dancing. He was early and made sure he was set up right. I met with Joe a few times before my wedding. He wanted to make sure things were just right. I definitely recommend DJ Joe Smooth!

Cortez and his team worked great at our wedding! We hired them for both DJ and videography and can’t wait to see our video! The music was awesome the whole night and when requested by the bride turned the place into a club and we dance the night away! I’m so thankful we had a dj that got people dancing!

DJ Joe Smooth was incredible. We hired him for a kids' dance and he was absolutely a delight to work with. He was flexible and worked with me on the fly to make sure the night ran smoothly. Joe was able to figure out the best kind of music for the occasion and the kids had an amazing time. I had people coming up to me afterwards telling me how great of a DJ he was. Joe was not only a professional and a great DJ, but he was also a really nice guy. I had an awesome night hanging out with him. I would recommend him to any and everyone. Thanks for everything, Joe!

DJ Philly Phil provides the total package and experience! We hired DJ Philly Phil right before Covid started and due to the pandemic we had the move the event many times and over a year later he was still working with us. Came to the party a couple hours early, setup everything, and crushed it! He created a custom playlist for a theme party and the guest loved him! Will use again in the future!! Thank you!

Cortez DJ-ed our wedding in Louisville. He went above and beyond to get additional speakers and equipment to accommodate the needs of our facility. He was prompt, had a fun-loving personality, and was a joy to work with!

DJ Joe provided the music for my our daughter's sweet 16 birthday party. What a boring party it would have been without a DJ. Joe kept the music going all night and had some nice lights that brought the party from boring to hopping!! We would recommend him and will use him again in the future as our other daughter is already planning her sweet 16! However, the disc he made for our daughter was blank. It did not play, we tried it in many devices. Maybe we could get another copy made?

DJ Joe is the BEST!!!!! DJ Joe made my daughter's Sweet 16 Birthday Party fabulous! He was there 2 hours early to set up and started playing music as soon as he was done. He only took 1-2 breaks all night, and when he did - he still kept the music going. He played from the time he was set up until the last kid walked out the door. He even got up and danced with the kids a couple of times - they loved it. He was great - The kids and adults loved him. He focused on playing the music they wanted to hear. But every so often he through in something for us older folks too. My daughter got a lot of compliments on him the next day at school. Joe was a huge factor in making her party a big success!. I know the next time I need a DJ - Joe will be the first person I call. Thanks again Joe!

DJ Shaikeem Epps was astounding! Birthday party with about 25 adults in attendance. Interactive professional communication prior to and throughout service. Energetic and actively engaged the party, making for optimal fun. Friendly, respectful, and a true professional. He knows what he's doing. No need to look for anyone else.

Mr. Cortez was an amazing DJ at my wedding reception. I was looking for someone to do the sound after my wedding on short notice and he made himself available throughout the whole process, checking in and insuring everything went accordingly to the plan we had laid out. At the reception, he was more than punctual, but set up; he went above and beyond to bring the kind of music to life as requested, including stage lighting for slow dances and as well family-friendly entertainment for children, songs that our younger guests could break a leg to. If you are seeking an amiable, professional, and polite DJ to host your ceremony, then look no further. Cortez Miles has your back the whole way. =)

From start to finish our experience with DJ Philly Phil was to say the least…fantastic. He came prepared and I had to do minimal work or explaining and he was on top of it. He had amazing equipment and absolutely rocked the party. 10/10 if you don’t hire him you’re simply missing out.
