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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

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.

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?

I've worked at several schools in Iredell County and this was easily the best prom ever! DJ VC Qrushplayed so many diffrent songs that were amazing! His remixes were bomb! His wife, Mrs. B.'s light show was absolutely stunning. And our principal said the kids wouldn't Wobble...LOL! Mrs. B. definitely proved her wrong!Thank you sooo very much for a professional, fun night for our students and staff. We hope to book DJ VC Qrush and Mrs. B. for any upcoming events.

My husband and I got married this past November and it wouldnt have been the same without DJ Bones. He is SO much fun and my family and friends couldn't stop complimenting him and his wife! They provide beyond quality service. We had two different venues for our ceremony and reception and DJ Bones provided music/sound for both venues. There was a scheduling error with my reception venue and he took care of the issue and made sure he was ready for the reception even with the unexpected setback. DJ Bones is someone you can trust, he's an honest business owner, he will go above and beyond for your event, he will provide quality service and affordable pricing. My husband and I cannot say enough good things about him. Thank you so much for your work! You've made a lifelong client with us.

After speaking with several DJ's, we picked DJ Chucky to do our wedding reception and we could not have been happier with our choice. He was great! With his attention to detail combined with years of experience, he was able to make our reception one to remember. We were impressed with how much time he was willing to be spend with us to plan everything out. When we weren't sure about what exactly to do at times, he had good suggestions so we certainly appreciated his expertise. He provided us with useful resources and planning tools to help us plan out all the details for the event as well. During the reception he created a family fun experience for everybody to enjoy. We gave him the freedom to choose much of the music that evening and his selections were spot on. Also, just the timing and order of everything kept all of our guests very entertained. Throughout the entire evening he made sure to check in with us to make sure we were happy with how everything was going. During the event he made it all about us while still making sure all activities flowed perfectly with his guidence and direction. We thought DJ Chucky did a fantastic job at wedding reception! Our guests thought so too for they gave us great feedback about how he did. We would recommend his services to anyone looking for a great DJ.

Jason was phenomenal made my wife and I special day extremely special. He was very thorough throughout the whole process and when my wife kept making changes right before the ceremony and reception he kept his cool when I probably would've lost it lol. We had a great time everyone loved the music very diverse gets the party pumping! If you need a DJ for anything not just weddings he is definitely your guy very very reasonable on the price and makes the night a night to remember. We had about 20 people that had to do introductions for the reception all using a different song and that can be tricky Jason did it without any hiccups and really made their entrance special and unique to everyone. He was also in military mode when needed by helping people get in line and be where they needed to be when they were supposed to be so we truly appreciate that as well we had an amazing time and so happy we chose Jason a.k.a.

Our experience with Jeff was top notch! He was the DJ at our daughters wedding and he helped the evening go perfectly! He knows how to make it flow and keep the guests involved. Loved the music he played and he went above and beyond by coming to our rehearsal and helping us with the flow of that too. He values your input and wants to make your day as special as he can. He is organized and punctual as well. I could go on and on!

Book with Jorge. He is the best Dj not only does he help with your music he helps with the MC work and wedding schedules. We were off of our schedule and he went with the flow got people dancing, laughing and we had a little karaoke which was the best. We truly had a blast with him. He helped make our wedding as perfect as possible and I loved it. Thank you so much for everything even when we were so chaotic and not knowing what to do. 💕❤️
