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.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

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.

Awesome time at our wedding. He was more than accommodating to changes that happened during the reception. I would definitely recommend, and rehire if I ever needed a DJ again.

Justin made the party on our wedding day! From the start he was able to work with us to provide everything we wanted for our special day, and then some. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, he is the DJ you need at your wedding!

I loved Bill’s professional attitude. He demonstrated how important we were to him by making sure everything was just how we wanted it. He answered any questions I had in a timely manner and was amazing at being an MC and DJ at my wedding. I would recommend you hire him, you won’t regret it.

Jacque was amazing! First of all he did our wedding with only 1 week to prepare, and on such short notice Jacque did everything in his power to make our wedding experience one we will never forget. He really cares about the music you want at your wedding and he will work hard to make sure it’s the right version, and his timing for cues was spot on as well! His lighting and sound system was on point , he even had fog effects which totally added to the experience. The ceremony was outside and it was raining so hard but Jacque made it work with a few umbrellas we braved the storm and had a great sounding portable speaker for the ceremony. Literally everything about this DJ kicks butt! He had my gusts dancing all night and everyone loved it!! If your looking for a reliable, professional, and personable DJ , Jacques the man!!

Cody was fantastic. He dj’d a KILLER set for our reception and also MC’d the dinner. He was very responsive, kind, and flexible, and he gave great advice leading up to the wedding. We were so happy with Scout Creative and would recommend to others. Literally everyone told us our wedding was fantastic and the DJ and dance portion of that was a huge part of that, we really enjoyed it and are very thankful

Breyshon and his MC Anthony were fabulous for our wedding. We had it at Tannenbaum and they got there one hour before hired time to set up free of charge. They had a conference call with my husband and I on what music, events, and agenda we had in mind for the wedding before hand. They are local to reno/Sparks and are very responsive. They played all the music we asked for and had a good variety ( our taste is all over the place) MC Anthony added a lot of fun personality with his narrations of the wedding . Breyshon definitely knows his stuff no matter what you ask him to play and when! 10/10 would recommend ! And they are much more competitive on pricing than other DJs!
