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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

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?

We hired DJ Madi for our prom this year. It was located on a river boat. DJ Madi was very good at reading the room. Our students were dancing and singing along to a variety of music.

What didn’t we like about working with Mike?! He was awesome. We hired Mike to DJ for our son’s graduation party. He has Autism, so there were some very specific requests. Everything went very smoothly, and was exactly what we wanted. We would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a good DJ :)

Digital DJ helped our birthday event be a hit for the families and teens in attendance. With reasonable rates, he provided exactly what we needed to make our pool party a success (especially overcoming a humid and wet venue). He was more than willing to receive requests, find specific tracks, and help guide the evening. Will recommend Digital DJ to all my family and friends!

John provided an outstanding DJ service for our riverboat cruise! Everything about his service was top notch. He was great at communicating with us prior to the event and delivered everything he promised. His LED lights and sound system are very impressive. Overall, a great guy to work with and provides a high quality, professional DJ service. I would highly recommend him to others.

I so rarely write reviews. Nick and Nikki ooze care and dedication to their craft--attention to customer service that is frequently lacking in our society. They brought energy and fun to our event and evident they truly love what they do. They included significant time prior to our event to learn our style and personally connected with our reception venue to ensure smooth operation. We had no doubt we picked the right DJ and they far exceeded any DJ I've experienced. They felt like long-time friends. Their sound and lighting equipment was impressive and they kept our party going till the end. Pick Magical Moments DJ Service for your celebration and truly, you will not be disappointed.

DJ Madi brought the party to our daughter’s wedding reception. He read the crowd & played music based on their responses. We would not hesitate to recommend him or hire him again.

This DJ was AWESOME!!! Played everything we wanted, didn't play what we didn't want, played my guests requests. We received a lot of compliments on how good he was! Super professional, punctual, his mics didn't cut out and very nice. He traveled at least 1.5 hours for my wedding and didn't even charge me for traveling fees (as you will find if you get a dj to travel more than 25-50 miles). He played my wedding from 4pm-12am and that didn't even include set up and break down! If your worried that "you get what you pay for" don't be. The husband and I were very happy and satisfied with this DJ...hire him! And thanks Chuck for doing an incredible job...we are extremely grateful!

Best DJ we ever had. Mikey and his sound man Mike were there way earlier than asked. Truly an awesome pair. Our space was a huge indoor sports dome (Healthside East Woodbury), and to our welcomed surprise they put together mulitple speakers to enhance and bring sound so beautifully together. They were beyond & above! Cudos!!!

Scott was very responsive. Within 24hrs of reaching out to him for information, Scott recommended setting up some time to talk about the reception and determine if he would be a good fit. The day of our reception, Scott checked in with us about our timeline and was very easy going. The dance floor was packed for most of the evening. I had several guests say that they loved the music selection and liked the dj. Scott was great. I would definitely hire him again.

Scott was amazing to work with for our wedding. We contacted him 2ish months prior to the event and were a little concerned about timeline. It was a non-issue! Leading up to, Scott was very thorough and met with us a couple times to walk through the night and our expectations for music. During the event, we had some changes with timeline and to our agenda. Scott was flexible and helped us get through toast(s) and adjusted the dance schedule as needed. He checked in several times throughout the night. We had an absolute blast and recieved lots of compliments from family/friends on the music. Would definitely recommend working with Scott to DJ your next event!
