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.

Mister Wayne is a master DJ. Our staff party was a hit, and it was all because of his music playlist, mixing, and lighting feature. He is now our go-to DJ!

DJ LAZ was AMAZING! There was a bad storm the day before our wedding & it knocked the power out of both venues. DJ Laz still showed up & made it work. I was worried that we would not have music (due to power outage) but Laz literally saved the day. Also, he is a GREAT DJ! If you’re looking for dedication AND talent, book him.

Throughout my extensive experience with throwing parties, I've determined that DJ GB was the absolute best DJ I've ever hired hands down. Not only was he extremely professional, but the selection of music he played got everyone on the dance floor ready to party. If you are planning on throwing a party or an event, I can promise you that hiring DJ GB will be the greatest investment.

You cannot go wrong with DJ Wayne. From the beginning, he tailored to the needs of my wife and I as we planned a New Orleans wedding from out of state. He's super easy to work with, is attentive, detailed oriented and overall just a great DJ and person. Hire him for your next event. You won't regret it.

Mike was the DJ for my wedding and he was absolutely awesome! I would definitely recommend him and will use him the next time I need a DJ. He was a great communicator, professional and honored all of my play/do not play requests. He played all of my important songs, made the exact announcements I needed and did a great job of mixing old and new songs to keep everyone dancing the whole time! Several people came up to me saying what a good job he did. Thank you Mike!
