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.

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?

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.

I am a co-student council adviser, and hired DJ Santos for our high school homecoming dance, and let me tell you - we would highly recommend him to any school looking for a DJ for an event. He made communication through Thumbtack effortless. He always responded right away to any message or question that we had for him. DJ Santos even spoke to our student council members over the phone to assure them of any concerns or answer any questions they had. I think this was what really sold our student council on hiring him! He let us send him a song request list prior to the dance, and was amazing during the night of taking tons of requests during the dance. Dj Santos was extremely professional, on time, and was fast with set-up and tear down. We already have talked about having him come back for next year's dance!

Steve was DJ for our high school reunion. He put together a great mix from the years we were in school as well as finding music for our fight song. We would recommend him highly.

He did a great job DJ'ing my parents surprise 40th Anniversary party & his sound setup was excellent. My parents were extremely pleased. He even got out on the dance floor & danced along with the guests. Would reccomend him to anyone looking for a DJ

Steve did a fantastic job at Davenport University's first Winter Formal. The event was extremely important to us because since it is the first one, it was vital to impress the attendees with great music and a great DJ to make this an annual event. Steve provided both of these. I was consistently getting good praises from various people on his performance. Very professional, respectful. Would definitely bring him in again for other events!

As a DJ and master of ceremonies, Steve Anzivino did an excellent job at our wedding reception. Every wedding reception is unique, of course, but one of the unique features of ours was that we - the bride and groom - were middle aged, and our families and children took part in the ceremony. We wanted to have lively music that would appeal to those who wanted to both listen and dance, and Steve provided it. We highly recommend him for you’re reception.

We hired this service for my schools senior prom this year. They were one time, easy to communicate with, and very friendly. They were very punctual the day of. The photo booth was excellent, while the DJ wasn't the greatest. The playlist we submitted wasn't used and music we didn't want played was played. Everyone still enjoyed the night, but it would've been better if they had stuck to the specific music we had requested. Overall, this service is average.

The communication during our wedding planning was great. The jazz band during cocktail hour and dinner was really good, Steve was able to get us a piano player for our ceremony that was last minute and Roger did a great job. The DJ portion was somewhat lacking, there were a lot of slow songs that were played, we had some people try to request a song and it wasn't being played until we went up, etc. Other than that he was great to work with.

We are so pleased for having chose Steve to be our wedding DJ. His character when we first met him made us feel we definitely chose the right person! His continuous communication with us throughout our wedding planning and genuine interest in how things were going made us feel like he took true interest in the couples he worked with. His responses (whether through email or text) were quick and he even fulfilled my last minute requests (yes, the night before the wedding I decided I absolutely wanted a song played)! Not only that, but he took the oddest song requests from friends and made the crowd dance until the reception was over. Steve was there to set up at the reception hall before we got there and had music playing (and we were even early). Steve dressed to the nines for our wedding and fit right in. If we ever needed a DJ again, with no hesitation we would choose Steve every time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you Steve for making the most special night of our lives filled with dancing and laughter! :)

For our wedding we were going to do a playlist but realized a week before our big day how difficult and stressful that would be. After messaging with a few different DJ’s, Steve really stuck out. He met with us right away to discuss what we were looking for. He’s been very attentive and present through the whole process. Steve did an amazing job at our wedding! Even after the pianist we hired for the ceremony cancelled the day of, he saved the day and brought out some speakers. He actually tried contacting some pianist he knew first. All in all Steve was an amazing DJ! We are forever grateful for his dedication and hard work!
