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.

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?

Great experience with the Dj and uplighting! We had a cancellation prior from another Dj and Dennis was super responsive right off the bat and really helped us in terms of securing the date and being there for our special day! He did a great job of getting everyone to dance on the dance floor! Thanks again

I really enjoyed the Friendliness and professionalism of The DJ. The staff need to be more on top of there game, but all in all not an awful experience.

There are some positions out there where, if you excel at what you do, no one really knows you were there at all. Jim was a fantastic DJ and MC for our wedding, and other than the times I needed to directly interact with him, we simply forget he was even there. Everything went off exactly how we wanted it to, from the ceremony to the first dance all the way to the last dance. We met multiple times before the event, and he was able to handle last minute additions and changes with ease and grace. I cannot say enough good things about Jim and his services, and would highly recommend him for any and all events. Thank you so much for making our special day one we will never forget!

Ren Cato was our Dj for our church's 200th anniversary party. He was right on time, set up and ready to go. Very professional and friendly. All this is great, but what was extraordinary was the way he paid attention to the crowd, and read the room to a T. Started out with mellow dance music, then ramped it up as he saw that people were responding to it. He responded to requests, even led the line dancing! We loved it! He made the party a perfect 10 for people aged 80 to 8. No one there will ever forget the pastor singing along with "Sweet Caroline"! This event may have started a new trend of having dances at our church--the response was that positive and enthusiastic. So thank you, Ren, you did an awesome job, and gave our 200th anniversary celebration a wonderful vibe. People will be talking about it for years.
