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.

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.

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?

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.

DJ Witt was awesome. Everyone want to hire him for their event. DJ Witt arrived before anybody, setup his equipment and started to jam away. We couldn't have picked a better player. Any time that we will have an event, DJ Witt will be it. He is the SHIT. We love you, DJ Witt!!! Thank You so much. You are wonderful.

I was very impressed with what Allstar DJ Service has to offer and their promptness. I ended up going with another DJ service, but I’ll say it wasn't an easy decision. I needed a DJ every Saturday and then I’m opening more locations for my business that will also need a DJ every Saturday. The other company just had more DJs readily available (15). If anything changes in the future or if I end up not liking the other company, I will reach back out.

DJ Strech was the best. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Everyone was on the dance floor all night and wanted to keep on going. All groups of people, and all different age groups didn't get off the dance floor. Thank you DJ Stretch for making my most memorable day such a blast!!!!!!!

We had another DJ bail on us three weeks before our wedding and were literally googling a dj and took a risk.DJ Stretch quickly got back to us and made us feel comfortable in knowing we would have music at our 4 hr. Reception. We met up with DJ Stretch once, going through details of our event. He was completely professional, put us at ease and continued to follow up with us periodically via email to confirm and finalize our song selections. The day of, DJ stretch was prompt, dressed professionally and was flexible with our last minute changes during the reception. We had a great party! There were plenty of people (including me), on the dance floor until the very end. I would absolutely recommend DJ Stretch to anyone who would enjoy a great DJ who puts the needs of his clients first. Thanks!

I needed a DJ on short notice and reached out to Allstar DJ Service. I got in touch with JC and went over the specifics of the event. Unfortunately, because of the timing and specifics of my request Allstar was not able to accept the gig. However, JC referred me to other DJ's and I heard from them in less than an hour. I'll definitely be reaching out to Allstar for other events in the St. Louis area.

DJ Witt, arrived on time (actually 15 minutes early), which was great!! He's very professional, and accommodating to a fault, and just an all around great guy. He plays the BEST music. Its not loud or over bearing. I recommend The DJ Witt DJ Services to anyone. I will be calling him again and again. The price for the service is the best. You cannot go wrong here. Thank you for your service to us

Tim was the best. He kept the music going no matter what, and he even found a song that most DJ's would've never found. So all I have to say is this, If you need a DJ you need this guy because without him its not a party.

It was a great experience working with DJ Witt. He was professional and in tune with the needs of the family. Any song we requested he played without a problem. This was the homegoing for my brother and DJ Witt made it a party to remember. I would use him again without hesitation.

DJ Greg was very professional and responsive to any questions. My daughter’s wedding reception was last minute but you could not tell with the DJ keeping the crowd engaged. He arrived early to set up and ensure everything was together. Plus, I love the fact that he make sure everything flows as it should and he review the timeline with the customer prior to the event. I honestly couldn’t ask for a better DJ and I’ll definitely be booking DH Entertainment in the future. Thanks again and you were amazing!

DJ Witt was awesome! He showed up well before the event, set up and was ready to go when the party started. His music choices were awesome and was always willing to take requests from the crowd. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a DJ that plays the music you want to hear.

Great DJ! Was really accommodating and reliable! He let us make our own list of songs and then took request at the event. Also rolled with the night, and didn't freak out when one of our party goers tripped on the cord and killed the music, DJ Stretch came back with a great song and kept the party going. I recommend him!

The 314DJ Team exceeded our expectations! Dave is everything anyone would want in a DJ. Everyone could tell he loved his job and he had fun with it which made everyone at our wedding excited and ready to move. We received numerous compliments from our guests about how great the DJ was. The comment we heard most was that he was the best DJ they have seen. He made the night very memorable. I will recommend him to everyone! Thank you thank you thank you for everything you did for us!! Not only did you make our night amazing, but you were flexible and fun to work with. You kept the whole process leading up to our wedding stress free. You did an amazing job, and we are so grateful that we had you as our DJ.

While searching for a DJ for my father's celebration of life, I talked to a handful of DJ's, but Jay C was hands down our first pic. He was extremely empathetic and quick to respond. His top priority was to make it perfect and he put much effort into trying to get it together since it was last minute. If you are looking for a pro - Jay C is your guy!
