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.

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.

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?

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. 

Reviews for Shreveport djs
Thumbtack Customer
DJ Marly was outstanding!! and I'm so happy to have hired him for my Wedding!! He was very professional from the start, and although I lived 4hrs away, the long distance was a worry for me, but he made me feel comfortable by always replying back to my phone call, emails, texts. He sent us a contract and went over every detail. We sent him a detailed list of about 150-200 songs and he was able to deliver! My wedding ceremony was outside and reception inside. The quality of his music was amazing and the guests were pleased and could not stop talking about how good DJ Marly was the whole night playing all their favorite music!!! I highly recommend him!!!!

We hired MJ Marly to handle the music for our wedding. This being the first time we had ever tried to put together an event of this size we didn't know what to expect. Right away we were pleasantly surprised at how well he blended professionalism with a casual way of interacting with us. He employed critical listening effectively to get a real feel for the atmosphere we were looking to create, and was able to make solid suggestions that fit our theme perfectly. This was a big plus given our inexperience in event planning too. It also helped that he was incredibly eclectic so when we bounced around to different genres of music to adjust the atmosphere of different parts of the event, he could bounce right there with us and work from the same page. I would 100% hire him again for any event that warrants the services of a DJ. Really, he could charge more than what he does for his caliber of service, so all things considered the price was a steal for what we got!
