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.

I planned our company Christmas party this year and I needed to make sure we had good music and a good DJ to help get the party started. So glad I found DJ Breez he was absolutely the best and made our night so magical. I had people texting me the next day saying this was our best Christmas Party by far! The lights he setup in the room made it feel so warm and cozy. Thanks again DJ Breez and you will be hearing from me soon so I can reserve you for our next party!!!! Thanks again!! Sarah

First I would like to say, if you are still looking for a DJ for your wedding day or big event then look no further you have found him! I personally had an experience with DJ breez years ago at an event I attended. He had us up on the dance floor the entire event! He made it fun and lively at the same time! The experience was amazing! Now, that I am getting married in August of next year, I knew who was going to be our DJ. So I found him and sent him a message, boy does he respond quickly! In a matter of minutes, he had sent me his direct contact information and we were on a phone consultation. Let me say this; he was very polite, personable, and had an amazing sense of humor and wit. His knowledge and expertise of events and weddings blew me away! He sent me short videos of weddings and events where he was the DJ while we were doing our phone consultation! WHO DOES THAT..LOL! He answered and addressed all my questions and concerns. More importantly, I felt more like family and not just another one of his client's or gigs! By the time we ended our conversation, I already knew he was the right fit for our wedding! If you hire DJ breez, believe me YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

I had a great experience with this DJ! He was very responsive and helped make our day perfect and kept everyone on the dance floor! Even if/when a hiccup would happen he rolled through it and kept everything running smoothly. Can’t recommend enough!

Karaoke Commander showed up early to set up and was very professional. He play our requested songs at the right times and stayed within the guidelines on the type of music we gave him. He truly helped keep things going and flowing at our wedding. We could not have asked for a better DJ.
