Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

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?

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! I would recommend DJ Teddy for any event. DJ Teddy was exceptional at Marshall's Grand Opening at Baltimore's Inner Habor. He's professional, dependable, cooperative and a true pleasure to have at our grand opening. He played a variety of music for 14 hours. Our customers and staff are still RAVING about DJ Teddy. He's SUPERB!!!

Dj Dexx was just amazing. Our corporate event / customer appreciation was a huge success because of DJ DEXX and his side-kick, DJ Rose. Our customers loved the event so much we extended for 2 more hours. They were so professional and worked the crowd for us, conducting our raffles, interacting with customers and just generally creating a fun and upbeat event. We will definitely be hiring them again!

DJ Brandon provided music and lighting for a corporate event for us. He was amazing through the whole process from planning, gathering requests ahead of the event from attendees, and everyone at the event was entertained and spoke highly of him... As an events planner I have paid WAY more for DJ services and received way less customer service. I fee like we struck gold finding him. We will definitely be booking DJ Brandon again for future events!

Slable DJs for our wedding at the Baltimore Zoo in July and did an excellent job. Karl, the owner, is extremely professional. He put our minds at ease. We interviewed a total of 6 DJs (most from Thumtack) and Karl was by far the most professional. He really has his act together and made the entire experience (from finding a DJ, interviewing the DJ, picking out the music, reminding us of when we needed to submit our selection list, etc.) easy. As you might recall, doing with the travel agency on our honeymoon was an incredible pain, the excellent job you did sure did help. Thanks, Karl. You did a great job, and I would recommend you to anyone, anytime.

My experience with DJ Purherfik was Amazing, we are lucky that she is availble for our Wine party date at this late notice. We spoke on the phone. She was extremely professional with her calming demanor, it made me think I had the purherfik person for the job. She advised that we would have extensive communication prior to the date of the party. She is organized, professional and knowledgeable, that right she a genuis! I would recommend Dj Purherfik to anyone looking for a professional Dj to provide a fun environment for their party events. Thank you in advance!!

Our family enjoyed Dj Obi, he played every single request including a karaoke song. He started setting up several minutes before the party started, he did not try to leave or stop as soon as the time was up. Dj Obi stopped the music until he party coordinators told him too. Will definitely hire him again!

All went well. DJ Jigga-C was on time, professional, and prepared. The party was for my 70 year old husband who loves a good time. The crowd was mixed, some teens, 20's, 30's, up to 70's. The music was nonstop and great. Would I use DJ Jigga-C again? Yes. Would I recommend him to friends? Yes

Dj Teddy came ealry to set up. He provided music for the ceremony and reception. The atmosphere was great. My photographer did not show and DJ Teddy stepped in and took pictures and saved the day. If I had to give him a rating it would be a 100. The next event we have we will be utlizing his services. Thanks Teddy you really made my wedding a fun and great event.

DJ Fo4, aka Matt, did an amazing job DJing our wedding! As we were planning our event, Matt was extremely responsive addressing our questions, demonstrating his expertise from the start. For the wedding, he brought an impressive arsenal of high-end equipment and managed to pull off the challenging feat of skillfully playing different song lists in different rooms of the venue. Everything sounded awesome! Several of our guests complimented us on his work. (One even said he wants to hire Matt for his upcoming retirement party.) We can strongly recommend DJ Fo4 for any event where you need a professional DJ!

DJ Greg G was wonderful to work with during our wedding reception on June 15, 2018. I can not narrow down just one thing because everything he did was great. We plan to use him again for any events we may have and our friends too. Book him, you won't be disappointed. Thanks DJ Greg G. You were a true Blessing to us Mr. & Mrs. Sterling Butcher, Jr.
