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.

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 Jorge was incredible for my parents’ surprise birthday. I especially like that he was focused on what I wanted the party to be and made sure to make it happen. DJ Jorge was attentive to every detail making sure the music was what the crowd wanted. I had an Elvis impersonator and DJ Jorge worked well with him too. The months leading up to the party, he was responsive to my questions and requests. The evening of the party he was on time, played music that was just right for our group aging from infants to 80+. He encouraged the crowd of 63 people to dance and supported this with playing songs that our guests would like to dance to. If I have a need for a DJ in the future, I will certainly contact DJ Jorge and book him for his top notch DJ services. You will love him too!

DJ Rique was very professional, easy to work with and he was eager to make the wedding a memorable time for the Bride and guest. He did everything we asked of him and was on cue with all the music for the right moments. Will certainly recommend him to friends and hire him again should we need a DJ.

We were so pleased with Chucky the DJ and his services! He was on time, prepared, professional and genuine in his out going-friendly style to get us all up and all dancing despite our ages (from 20 yr olds to 90 year olds)! Well done Chucky! We hope you will be our DJ again in 2 yrs! Sr. Lisa Atkins and the Sisters of Mercy

We were just over two weeks out from our preschool's Valentine dance and we decided to get some quotes from DJs in the area. We received several, but Whirl-A-Way's price was great and reviews were positive. Our DJ arrived early, set up some great lighting, and played plenty of crowd-pleasers which got everyone up and dancing. He received plenty of compliments from parents and truly made our night special. He was friendly, easy to talk to, and very professional. Many of our kids had never attended an event with a DJ, and they were in awe! We are really happy we chose Whirl-A-Way for our event, and will certainly use them again!

Best DJ in this world! Jorge is amazing! From the responses to plan for the wedding, to setting up at the venue and to play all our music choices. His bilingual quality came very handy in our blended party. Everyone was dancing at all times and had the best time! Very professional and great sound system.

We loved having Krysta as our wedding DJ/MC. She was very responsive throughout the planning process and called to go over the details beforehand. Day is she really helped to make our day special - from helping with ceremony music, to announcing what was happening next, she really helped to make our special day move along smoothly. She did a great job of using our suggestions/genres to make a mix that everyone really enjoyed, and to get all generations out on the dance floor at one point or another. Would highly recommend! You won’t regret it.
