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.

She’s amazing! We were lucky enough to have Ms DJ BossLady tutor our daughter for DJ lessons. Our daughter is super enthusiastic to learn more. Highly recommend!!!

James came early with all his equipment and played for a little bit longer than I requested him to! His lights, professionalism, and jams were exactly what I love for a middle school dance DJ. My students were quite pleased.

We had a great fundraiser with DJ StormTrooper 421! Sam MC’d our event and even did our live auction. He was entertaining and engaging! Sam and Anna make a great team! Everyone had so much fun! It was an international crowd and they had all the songs people were requesting. We will definitely use them in the future for other events!

Some points were fine. In general, however, we were deeply disappointed with the performance of the DJ. We provided detailed instructions that were not followed and equipment malfunctions persisted all night. We sprung for what we thought was a good deal but regret that choice because we got what we paid. 1. In both of the phone calls with the DJ we asked to cut the songs and play only the middle two minutes of each song. Also, we asked to merge the songs instead of having three seconds gaps between the songs. 2. The lady announcing everyones’ names at the beginning pronounced many names incorrectly. She was a surprise to us, we would have liked to talk to her before the wedding to make sure she pronounced the names correctly. She even pronounced the groom’s name incorrectly seconds after confirming it correctly. We understand that the DJ’s team might be introducing themselves to the market and their price might be a little more competitive, but we would not recommend.
