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.

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?

Wow, Omg!! I don’t even know where to begin... I can’t recommend Jeffrey enough! He was beyond our expectations! We had a lot of delays and changes the day of my mother’s wedding and he handled it all with not a problem! He was on top of his game and so organized. He knew exactly what music to play the whole night. He had many of my family members on the dance floor that we never imagined would be. Matter of fact we were non stop dancing until he was done for the Night, besucase the music was SO good! Not only was he very professional and efficient. But he’s one hell of a DJ! (Excuse my language) I can’t wait for another event so we can party with him again! You definitely won’t regret this DJ!!!! Thank you so much Jeffrey!!!!

Paul was absolutely amazing at our wedding. He was the best DJ we could have ever hoped for. He was timely, professional and unbelievably fun and up beat! There was a medical emergency at my wedding and Paul did an amazing job checkin in with my husband and I and kept the environment calm and fun during a very stressful time. As the night went on he constantly checked in with us and kept all of our guests happy and having a great time! We would more than happily work with paul again and again!

12/12/17 : We had our corprate Christmas party on 12/8. Jimi was a fantastic DJ. He was professional, courteous, interactive and receptive to our staffs request. This was the first time we used him and it certainly will not be the last. I would even keep him in mind for other personal and professional events. Highly recommend!!!! We booked Jimi after reviewing the reviews and after speaking with him directly. He is very professional, responsive and very party/industry savvy. The price was right for a Corporate event...he is very fair. We look forward to meeting him at our event on 12/7.

We asked Jimi to DJ host our wedding this past weekend. Not only did he do what he said he would do, he did it well and a whole lot more. Originally he was hired for the reception, upon learning we had nothing planned for the on-site ceremony and cocktail hour, he included more music time to make sure our day was special. He spent a lot of time with us to make everything just right, he was professional and his attitude was awesome. When we experienced a smoke alarm that lasted what seemed like forever, he kept playing straight through and when we asked him to stay a bit longer, he did so willingly. I would HIGHLY recommend Jimi as he has the ability to be versatile, understands music deeply, is passionate about his craft and it shows, has etiquette and knows what to play when. He shows up early and leaves late. He was simply wonderful.
