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?

Very nice and extremely knowledgeable. Very responsive! Great personality which is important for a DJ! Definitely drove the conversation and helped us get a better understanding of how things are supposed to go since we were clueless. We hired him as our DJ for our wedding this upcoming January. He was so helpful and very responsive. My fiance and I walked away from the meeting very pleased and excited. We are more relaxed knowing he is our DJ. We have trust that things will go perfectly! I would definitely recommend him to anyone even without actually experiencing his services yet. Will come back and update review after the wedding.

Amazing experience! Our reception would not have been the same had we had another DJ. Our guests said that the music was on point all night! Tomas and Claire are very accommodating and we would highly recommend their services!

April was prompt, professional, and accommodating to our younger crowd. She went above and beyond my expectations--helping our little ones with lyrics--being very friendly and inviting--extending her time to make sure each child had at least one song to sing. I couldn't have asked for more. I will definitely be booking her again the next time we need a DJ/Karaoke service.

What can I say, Pride at Galax Provibes provided us with a wedding day, we will never forget. My husband and I were married just yesterday, May 31, 2014 in Livonia, MI, and I couldn't wait to post my review. The music, the up-lighting, and personalized projected monogram were all perfect; I wouldn't have changed a thing. He and his assistant were fun, professional, prepared, and kept the party going. Everyone had a great time. Thank you Pride for everything, and all the wonderful memories you have given us. If I'm ever in need of a DJ again, or asked if I know someone I could recommend, you are it. Jeff and Geri Forsman
