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.

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.

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.

We had a great time with DJ LOS as our DJ! He was super responsive, professional, and just an all-around great guy. We're writing this review right as we get back from our honeymoon to make sure anyone on the DJ-search sees this. We searched far and wide for a DJ who would be responsive to what we wanted for our reception, and DJ LOS met the challenge -- 1990/2000s hip hop and R&B, blended with bachata/merengue/salsa classics and hits. We definitely recommend! Thanks again for helping to make our reception so much fun!

DJ Allan arrived well before the start of the event and brought everything that he needed. Not only was the music the right vibes but the sound was incredible. Everyone had a wonderful time as well as DJ Allan. I will always reach out to him first whenever I am having an event and in need of his services.

Thomas was able to find me a dj for a busy day and my fiancee and I totally appreciated that he went out of his way to find us someone. I just wish that the dj would have been more proactive in communicating with the venue. I also wish that the dj had played more of the songs that I had requested beforehand. There was a misunderstanding with the venue and there was not as much time for dancing as was planned, but I still feel slighted that only two of the songs I requested that night were played. I feel like I paid too much for too little. Now I know what to look for/expect in the future when I plan my wedding.

We celebrated a small event with 55 people, you know when a DJ is excellent, when he's able too get everyone in the room up and dancing. Mr. Alarcon is a true professional, he was in constant communication with me, which made me feel very comfortable with him. I'm celebrating my 50th birthday in November, I plan to hire Mr. Alarcon again to DJ my special event with over 175 Guest. Thank you so much Mr.Alarcon.

DJ Tervor was outstanding from the first time we spoke about hiring him until he packed up his equipment. I spoke with DJ Trevor several times before the event to discuss what music we wanted for the wedding reception. He knew from a few short descriptions of our guest list exactly what we were looking for. He was highly praised by our guests throughout our event. His professionalism, equipment, and performance was top notch and I would recommend him a New York minute.

I highly recommend Dj Vybe. He was very professional with his services. I am very impressed. I want everyone to use his services. If I was able to give him 10 stars I will. But to me 5 stars are too low. Thank you again.
