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?

DJ Rev is a very humble DJ. He really helped to get the party started as well as join in on the fun. He even made sure to play all the kids request. He's great and well worth the money!

DJ Chris was wonderful to work with. We were really happy with how well he communicated with us, and allowed us to choose what we wanted and didn't want. He provided insightful ideas and was not pushy. Everyone was "happy with the DJ", which is so important for any wedding. From the first time I contacted Chris, to actual wedding day, it was so easy working with him. He was ready to go when we arrived at our reception, and I never had to seek him out for anything. His price was the best also. So glad we went with this DJ.

Chris is a terrific DJ-not only does he play music but he makes sure the whole day went as planned. We did not have to worry about timing at all. He is funny and helpful. I had people coming up to us all night asking who the DJ was and where we found him. Thanx for making our day run smoothly!

Matt was amazing. He hosted my kid's birthday and a 4th of July family gathering. He was friendly and played Arabic, Chaldean, and English songs. He will for sure be our to-go DJ. I highly recommend him and will definitely tell all my friends and family about him.

A.B. Did an amazing job at our mini prom for 2020 graduates! The kids could not stop talking about how much fun they had on the dance floor and how great the music was. I would definitely recommend him to everyone who’s looking for a DJ and will for sure hire him again!

Joey was excellent!!! He DJ'ed our school's 6th grade graduation/celebration party. He was prompt, professional and courteous. The music was excellent and appropriate and the lights created the perfect atmosphere!! He kept the kids going from beginning to end, and that's hard to do for that age group!!! I'm still getting calls asking for DJ Joey's information and the 6th grade class are still posting how much fun they had and how it was the best time ever!!! From the initial consultation to the end of the celebration party, Thank you Joey for making this such a memorable experience! I look forward to working with you in the future!
