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 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.

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 Davey DJ did my 50th birthday party and we had the best time ever. He was interactive and felt the crowd, changing the music as appropriate. He was so mannerly and went out of his way to help us with a name that tune game. We had the best time and I will call him again should I ever need a DJ. Total thumbs up!

DJ Static is the utmost professional. He communicated with me during the entire process of hiring him, to the completion of my event. He was very attentive to all of our music needs. Additionally, he accommodated all of our music requests. I will definitely hire this pro again.

Best DJ money can buy. Excellent service with attention to details during my daughter’s Quinceañera. Had brand new equipment including up lighting all around the ball room. Music was perfect and knew how to incorporate different cultures and play music both in English and Spanish to ensure that all guests were having the time of their life.

I cannot express our gratitude for DJ Magic Mola. Everything about him is professional, he is an all around great guy! We were pleased with the whole process and even more with his delivery of music and he made all of our guest feel welcomed. He helped get the party going, took requests, and kept the party going throughout the night. I would definitely recommend him!! Look no further he’s your guy! You can’t beat his quality work, his service is worth every penny. Thank you for everything, you went above and beyond and we are so grateful. -The WOOLARDS

Words cannot express how AMAZING Mike was! Originally my husband and I planned a July wedding and I started searching for DJs. Well, deployment news came about and we had to put everything on hold. I remember speaking with Mike and having such a great feeling about him. When I had to put the wedding on hold I was pretty disappointed but understand that's Army life. Fast forward a few months I get back on Thumbtack ready to continue the wedding planning since deployment got pushed back and I realized the entire time I had been away, Mike had been sending me the most helpful links and information a Bride could ever ask for. It was a done deal for me then and there. He was not only willing to help in the DJing aspect but in all the other crazy details of wedding planning! So helpful and I was so thankful! The week of the wedding I was a basket case. We had 30 people travel to our Army post and I was at my wits end by that Thursday. Mike definitely calmed me down and never rushed me for last minute details. He even organized the entire reception for me because I honestly didn't have time to think about a timeline. And it was perfect! Once we arrived to the reception he was calm, cool, and dressed nicely which is a great first impression for me since we had only spoken on the phone. He got me to sit down and take a break and give him the final bit of information so he could do his job well. And let me tell you, he was SUPERB! I don't use that word often either. I gave him a short list of must play songs and he went off that and continued to play songs that kept or families and friends on their feet! He was smooth in all the transitions and was patient when my groom disappeared to the kegs during scheduled dances on several occasions. All in all, if we ever had a wedding or any big event again, Mike would be first on my list. Such a wonderful man who knows exactly what he is doing. I'd give him 100 stars if I could! Thanks so much for all you did, you were definitely a blessing!
