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.

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.

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.

They were amazing. He made sure to always keep me informed and to make sure that we were satisfied with what was being played. It was awesome having him as a DJ. He played a wide variety of music and he didn’t overcharge his services even though he was hired only a week in advance. I will definitely hire him again if I need a DJ again.

DJ Bones referred me to Paul Codispoti that works with DJ Bones. I spoke with Paul prior to the event. We exchanged multiple texts in planning the event. Paul was a no show and did not respond to my texts/phone calls the day of the event. He texted me the next morning apologizing saying there was a family emergency. I understand unexpected health emergencies but it was very unprofessional that he did not contact me the day of the event explaining his inability to show up.

DJ Bones DJ'd for us at a graduation party which included dinner and dancing. He was in touch with us beforehand to get a sense of our music preferences, and our diverse group of guests was really happy with the music he played. He was very professional and had a great set-up with his speakers and equipment. I would definitely recommend him to friends who are hosting an event.

Michael was a great hit at our HOA event! He was a hot commodity among the kids and adults alike. His comical and whimsical nature captivated our community and everyone stuck around until the very end. He really brought on the Halloween effect with his laser lights and fog machine. Every activity that was conducted he turned it into a fun memory-making experience. We will definitely be hiring him again and would highly recommend him for your DJ/party needs!
