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.

Great DJ! Interacted with crowd, played a great mix of music, and was fun. We'll definitely be using Your Event DJ RJ for future events!

Dj was good. Venue was large so it was hard to hear the dj speak during dinner and announcements, venue issue not his. Photo booth was just ok. The "booth" was falling down the entire night and the camera and screen were off so pictures weren't what you expected

RJ was a rare jackpot I found on Thumbtack for my wedding DJ (few other projects didn't work out). He was professional, kind, and extremely accommodating. Had great ideas and was so pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend him for any DJ related needs. Thank you RJ!

We had Bill DJ our Dad's 70th birthday on pretty short notice. He was professional, read the crowd, and easy to work with.

We brought out their company/DJ for a college silent disco event and it went perfectly! They were responsive to all my messages and responded in a timely manner. We'd love to work with them again!

Scott was an absolutely perfect dj for my wedding at the Hard Rock Cafe. He played everything we wanted and nothing we didn't. He took requests from thr guests and managed to make everyone happy in a short period of time for our only 4 hour reception. No sound issues and everything was set up and good to go when we arrived. He kept everyone dancing and the dance floor lighting kept it fun and interesting. I am VERY happy with Scott's DJ services and highlg reccomend him to other couples!!!

WNYDJ was amazing! Being a bride, you have so many things to worry about. Having WNYDJ as our DJ, was one less thing I had to worry about on my wedding day. The music was in good hands. Everything he played was exactly what I wanted. With an intro call, and a call a couple days prior to the wedding, everything was ready to go the day of. He guided me through the process, letting me know what I needed to chose specific songs for. I would recommend WNYDJ to anyone looking for a wedding or small party DJ.

DJ Baby Boomer Box was very professional to work with. He came to the event with a team that made sure all our guests requests were fulfilled when they wanted a particular song, there was always someone at the table so the music was always going, and they played a variety of music that was in addition to the songs that we provided on our playlist. He was able to find songs that suited our taste based on our suggestions for what music to play. I would definitely recommend them for any future events because they are a family business where everyone takes part in making the wedding or party enjoyable. DJ Baby Boomer Box was very affordable and provided quality services throughout the evening.

RJ provided the music for an Employee Recognition and Holiday Event. He was on time and did a great job as the DJ. I was really impressed with the way in which he walked around the hall with an app on his phone checking the sound levels to make sure they were at an appropriate level. We will definitely consider using him for future events!

Tim did such amazing job. From the first to the last song he had almost everybody on the dance floor. Any song you wanted he had. He made it such a fun and memorable night that I will never forget. I highly recommend Tim for your DJ at your wedding or any other event you may have.

Great experience! We were thrilled with Brian and his team. Brian put a lot of work into our wedding, with DJ services, lighting, and photo booth. Brian played a great mix of music that helped our guests of all ages enjoy themselves. Everything was lovely, my husband and I couldn't be happier! Wonderful service, at a very reasonable price.

4/7/18 was my dads 75th surprise bday party. 716 entertainment (Nicholas) was the DJ and Rhonda was the photographer! I can’t say enough about the wonderful job they both did! They had attention to detail, were engaged with the event, extremely personable and friendly. The guest loved them! They were like family for the night! My mother said he did the right amount of talking, playing music and engaging the guests. If your considering a DJ, look no further! I promise you he is the Best!! The photographer Rhoda was amazing, so sweet with a fantastic personality, and always taking that “in the moment picture “. B/c u only have 1 x to get your event correct. No do overs. Hire them! They will not disappoint!!! Btw... I rarely give such high ratings unless deserved ! These were well deserved

We couldn't be happier with how our event went and Jessica played a huge part in that success. She was able to accommodate our wedding date on short notice and helped provide us with suggestions that fit our vision. Her calm and confident demeanor helped comfort us, knowing that the wedding and emcee services were in good hands. All of our guests had a great time and I'm happy to both recommend and vouch for Jessica's DJ services.

Bill was the DJ at our wedding reception, and we are very happy with how things turned out. The music that he chose for dinner was absolutely perfect, based on just giving him a general idea of what we wanted. He kept people out on the dance floor all night long, playing a good mix of what we specifically requested, requests from guests, and other songs that he successfully chose based on reading the room. Our guests had a great time!

We are thrilled! I'm confident that Vibe is an excellent choice for anyone who needs a DJ - Jessica was perfect for our wedding. She seemed to "get" us - I recommend especially if music is important to you and you have specific taste. But beyond that, she's good at reading the crowd and guiding the party as well! She is never corny, but still fun - our guests loved her. Her equipment was great and a consultation was included. She was very responsive to all inquiries, which I was also very thankful for. Literally couldn't have been better. Thanks, Jessica!

I haven’t had much experience working with DJs but 716 Entertainment seemed to hit all the marks for customer service and I’m thankful to have stumbled on them. I was impressed with their professionalism and reliability. Nick did a thorough job helping me plan my event, i.e., coming up with ideas, sending me reminders, etc. and everything worked out seamlessly. The cake was just as I expected and Rhonda did a great job on the details. These guys aim to please and are proud of the work they do, I would definitely consider hiring them for your event.

Excellent!!!! I never used thumbtack before, let alone hire someone through it, but I am SO GLAD I did!!! I just got married this past weekend with about 8 weeks to plan it and Jay was awesome! He was in constant contact with me from start to finish, working out every detail in an easy going fashion....which, for anyone planning a wedding, was a huge relief. They weren’t only meticulous, they set up early, worked with everyone wonderfully, and most importantly kept the party going all night! Superb DJ that I highly recommend to say the least!!!!!
