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.

Chris was a fantastic DJ for the Jackson High School 50th class reunion, 8/11/18. He interacts with the crowd and kept us on schedule. Terrific personally!!

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!

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.
