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.

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 Reggie was great. He was patient and personable. He played the music that was appropriate for the party. I would definitely recommend him for any wedding or function. And i will call him if i ever need a dj in the future. Extremely satisfied, Lisa Hughes

Celester as DJ for my wedding reception was fantastic! He is extraordinarily talented and professional. I was so impressed with his accommodating my requests in advance, such as playing a wide variety of song requests and even taking a COVID test, with doctor's results. I recommend very highly. The value of his services is the icing on the cake. Tip him generously! Just what you're looking for in a wedding reception DJ.

Chad was on time, polite,helpful and easy to work with. He did play the grooms entry music out of order and that did cause some confusion. The reception music was good but not exactly as he was instructed. I would recommend his services but also recommend making sure the DJ knows exactly how the bride and groom want things done. This will make sure the DJ does not make any mistakes as we seen.

DJ Stretch was a pleasure to work with. Throughout the planning process he was easy to contact and was receptive to our ideas. I requested numerous little-known songs to be played during dinner and he played them all! He orchestrated all music cues exactly as requested. He arrived and set up prior to the event as planned. He easily worked with all adjustments during the reception. My guests told me they appreciated the volume was just right so some folks could dance and others could have a conversation. DJ stretch read the crowd well. My husband and I strongly recommend him. He was fantastic!

After the original music planned for the wedding reception fell through, We booked a DJ 2 weeks prior to our son’s wedding reception. Reggie Ivy provided a great evening of music and dancing. I highly recommend him for your events. He’s quite personable and took the stress out of a stressful event.
