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.

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

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.

Reviews for Columbia djs
Thumbtack Customer
DJ Dennis is AWESOME! My friend needed a DJ for her wedding. We were planning the wedding event ourselves and DJ Dennis gave us an excellent price. He was so professional, met with us beforehand to help plan the reception schedule, and the song play list. The bride to be was so impressed with his attention to detail and caring about what she wanted- she also hired him to emcee the reception. He was so respectful to the wedding guests, the family’s traditions, and then he kept the party pumping into the night. Thank you DJ Dennis for a stress free and fun event.

We hired Chad for our wedding and he was incredible. He had to set up in three different places and did it with a smile. He nailed every aspect of our wedding. He played the walk down music, MC'd the rehearsal dinner, and nailed the music for the dance at the end of the night. Not only that, but Chad was extremely personable and an absolute treat to do business with. He could get away with charging a lot more, but chooses not to do so. Great DJ, great person.

Our DJ, Shaun, did an amazing job on our reception. He drove two hours to have a meeting with me and my bridesmaid a week before the wedding to make sure everything was on track for our big day. He arrived at the venue three hours early to be sure everything was ready to go. Our pianist for the ceremony was having trouble with her sound system and he got it going for her so the ceremony could begin. He made sure the reception ran smoothly and on schedule and was a big help. We were lucky to have him!
