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.

Aaron was amazing!!! I couldn't have chosen a better DJ for our wedding!! So easy to work with, had so many wonderful suggestions, took everything I wanted to heart and made it such a memorable event. So many of our guest came up to us at our wedding talking abou how much they loved the DJ. One of the best decisions we made for our special day!!!

Hired Aaron for our Grand Opening of Sam's Xpress Car Wash in Hickory. Jamie, one of Aaron's DJs, performed for our event and we were very happy. While at the event, we needed a little adjustment to a small detail, and Aaron and Jamie both followed through. Very happy with how the day went. Thanks Jamie and Aaron for keeping it family friendly!
