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.

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?

After our original DJ dropped out of his commitment two days prior to the event, DJ Spud was a sigh of relief from the moment we began communicating. He was very amiable and professional with the host and guests. He was open to adjustments in the flow of our event. Some of our vendors working with us on our event were very familiar with him due to his professional status in the industry. He worked well with our hustle instructor and engaged our guests to get them on the dance floor. DJ Spud also worked with us to incorporate Karaoke throughout the event which our guests loved. His rates were reasonable for everything we asked of him. We loved him and will consider him for future events. Thank you DJ Spud!!!

DJ Rodney was amazing at our daughters grad party! He literally had all ages on the dance floor. His equipment was phenomenal and offered some surprises for us which were a lot of fun. He has great energy and really knows how to get the guests involved. I strongly recommend DJ Rodney!!!!

MJF was the pianist and DJ for our wedding and went above and beyond his call of duty to ensure we had an amazing reception. We played some songs together and the rehearsal process and execution were beyond perfect. The DJ aspect of things went extremely well with a great flow of music. Once the dance floor got going, it didn't stop until we were forced to end the night by our hall. We highly recommend MJF Entertainment for any wedding reception, dinner party or other occasion and also highly recommend all take advantage of the piano playing With the DJ-ing.

Dan did a great job as DJ at our wedding! He made sure to get all the little details correct including name pronunciations, our song selections, etc. He kept everything running smoothly and kept the dance floor lively! There was not a single moment when there weren't any people on the dance floor! Thanks Dan!

Matt was an excellent DJ for my Mom’s surprise birthday party with 90 guests. He did a wonderful job and even stuck with my no play list. Then my guests wore me down and I told him he could take the cupid shuffle off the list and play it. Lol He’s a very nice professional and has excellent equipment and will sail through your whole party without skipping a beat. Ha! He even rescued me by having a screen & projecter set up to use for the family videos I wanted to have playing silently throughout the party, It was a last minute request and he didn’t even charge me extra. He truly was a life safer in that moment to me. You will not be disappointed if you choose Matt Fillion for whatever event you need a D.J. He is a genuine gentleman and an honest professional.
