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. 

Get cost estimates from the best DJs near you to find out how much you should expect to spend for your event.

Reviews for Passaic djs
Dawn H.
With such a short lead up to the celebration of my son's wedding that had already occurred DJ Vybe didn't miss a beat. We had so much going on, some added/ changed last minute......he introduced us all into the room, the traditional wedding dances, the Matron of Honor, Best Man and parents speeches and a big surprise announcement, then having a band play a short set....and he went seamlessly into the party music keeping the dance floor full until the lights were turned on signaling it was time to go....no one wanted to leave! DJ Vybe will be our "go to" DJ/MC for any events in the future. He handled the short lead in and everything we threw at him without a glitch. Thank you DJ Vybe for helping to make the party such a great success!!!
