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 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 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.

Reviews for Dearborn djs
Thumbtack Customer
DJ Joey K provided an experience beyond our expectations! We were married on March 5, 2016. He performed for our wedding and reception. He was very well prepared and very helpful in respects of providing helpful worksheets and suggested music. DJ Joey K checked in with us and kept us updated on upcoming steps before the wedding. DJ Joey K was always available and responded to calls and emails very promptly. He had many great ideas and helped us envision how things would flow for our wedding and reception music. The day of the wedding he was set up well before the wedding. The guest were very impressed with the way he transitioned the many songs we had for the guest entrance music, the bridal party entrance music, and the brides entrance song. He was on cue! DJ Joey K kept the guest engaged and built on each step of the wedding into the reception with music to heighten the guest and wedding party to an evening of Great Heights. We were very happy with each stage of music and the guest are still talking about DJ Joey K and how great he was.There was never an empty dance floor. DJ Joey K provided many picture and video's and gave us many memories that we will have for years to come, this was very unexpected but shows how he goes above and beyond! We would use DJ Joey K for any occasion again.
