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.

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.

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?

I hired Tomas for a surprise party for my husbands 70th birthday. If you want an excellent DJ Service then you must hire, Tomas Muzik DJ & Event Services! Tomas was very professional from my first contact with him to very end! Nick was our DJ and he was so professional, arrived an hour before our event started to set up and provided a positive and fun atmosphere from the time he arrived to the very end! You won’t go wrong hiring this DJ service!

Nick was the DJ for our holiday party. Before we engaged him for this event he was not known to us, but he stuck out to me because of his responsiveness and the services he could provide. He was easy to communicate with, he did exactly what he said he would do and he was very accommodating when it came to special requests by myself or our guests. He was top notch and I would definitely use him again if I had the opportunity! THANKS NICK!

This DJ is more than Music! He knows how to make your event smooth and flow, He is willing to call and meet in person to get your personality into your event. He supplied the speakers, lighting, and transitions and kept us informed of each time table to keep the event flowing according to our timeline for the night. Each special moment was allowed to shine. We were so blessed to have Tomas and Claire add many personal and professional touches on our Wedding day!

With the covid situation we were forced to change our date & Chris was super helpful with the process, he gave us a courtesy call to ask about changing a date to try to secure a date we wanted. Unfortunately for us our time lines did were not compatible but he made this whole situation run so smooth. With things changing daily he was very tentative to our needs and every time I wanted to change our date again he responded timely and professionally and never seemed like I was burdening him. He even gave us a recommendation for a new dj which took a huge stress relief for us. He definitely went above and beyond for us. We did not get to utilize his services but if I ever needed him for anything like this again I would recommend in an instant. Thank you so much for taking the time to help us through this stressful time and making us a priority.
