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.

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?

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.

Jacob DJed my wedding and did a terrific job. He has a great vibe, really professional, and really experienced with weddings/events. I had several family members and friends that used him as their DJ, so I knew going into it I didn’t have anything to worry about. ! I didn’t want to copy someone else’s wedding, but it really didn’t seem like copying anyway because he was so open to our ideas and creating what I wanted. I was really happy I had him as my DJ since his professionalism and style is so exactly perfect for my wedding. Thanks!!!

What a great party experience Steve gave us with his awesome DJ skills! My guests couldn't stop raving about how much fun he made the party. Even my music picky husband had all good reviews for Steve! From beginning to end he provided a professional, easy experience. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services, and will definitely use him again, thanks Steve!

Chris was honestly the best thing that could have happened for my wedding. He really went above and beyond, and was absolutely fantastic to work with. He not only guided us along the process, helping choose songs for each event, the order of everything during the reception, and how we wanted everything to go, but he also included a free dance lesson in which he choreographed our first dance to really make it memorable. He also acted as a second photographer and took pictures throughout the entire ceremony and reception (getting shots that our actual photographer was not able to get), and he was amazing with keeping the guests dancing and having fun. He made every effort to save us money as well, which is rare these days. I was so impressed with his professionalism and passion, I would recommend him for anyone. If you're looking for a DJ for an important even, Chris is definitely your guy.
