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?

Promised me we had a deal but then he wouldn't return my calls. Hired DJ and the Mic and they came to the rescue and saved the day and they were wonderful. I would NEVER recommend RD STARS

Dave was the perfect DJ for our reception! He made sure the party kept going from the first song to last call. Dave did a great job of making sure the night was tailored to us and included everything we wanted. I would highly recommend Dave if you want to have a great party!

We had a meeting with the DJ to go over what we wanted and we thought we had everything figured out. The day of our reception we decided to change a few things and ended up with awkward silence and the same songs played 2 or 3 different times. Didn’t have the best variety of music and depended on WiFi. Not very impressed with the results.

Great DJ! Rod did a great job at our meeting and awards banquet. The sound and lights were spectacular. Rod is very good and knows his music. He also had great music videos that he played on the projection screens on our breaks. His wife Diane also helped out and did a great job with the spotlight. I would highly recommend RD Stars!!

Rod cares about his clients and works hard to provide the experience that they are looking for. He will meet with you and share information about all the optional equipment that you may be interested in. He is very open to your ideas, and easy to work with. I have never worked personally with having a DJ at my parties, but I certainly recommend RD Stars all the way. Everyone had a great time at the high school graduation party.

We hired Brandon as a DJ for our wedding, and he was a pleasure to work with. We first did a virtual meet and greet and then a dry run/equipment test before the actual wedding, and Brandon was very accommodating throughout this whole process. His fee was very reasonable and better value than anyone else we got quotes for. I especially want to highlight how easy he was to communicate with and how flexible he was throughout the process: he created a Spotify account just for us, so we could share the playlist we put together, and bought a microphone stand for our officiant when we requested it as well. He had great quality equipment and did a great job MCing the event, as well as making sure the background music and the dancing were fun. We highly recommend Brandon for your event!
