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.

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.

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?

I have not yet had my event that DJ Wes is going to DJ, but up until now DJ Wes has been extremely responsive and professional. All of the communication has been very clear and I’m looking forward to working with him soon.

DJ Vybe provided the music for our middle school prom. The kids (as well as the teachers) had a fun time. The music was great and timed out perfectly for the 3-hour event. Thank you DJ Vybe. We will be using DJ Vybe’s services in the future.

My boss chose a DJ out of the Thumbtack network but just the emails exchanged with DJ Nate Slate proved what a professional he is. I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to use his DJ services -- based on my communication with him, he would've been outstanding!

Music is the heart & soul of any party including a wedding reception. My wedding reception was amazing because of the DJ Entertainment commitment to provide flawless service! He accommodated every change I requested, I don’t know if he even have official office hours because he returned every text no matter what time I reached out. The set up of the DJ booth is so professional, it really added to my wedding venue. I can go on & on. Versatile DJ Entertainment is top of the line, this DJ service is even offered outside of NYC! Seriously, I can go on & on. Many thanks & blessings to Versatile DJ Entertainment.

I cannot say enough good things about DJ Wess. He is a dream to work with. Every single person at my event couldn't help but dance, thanks to his skill as a DJ. No one wanted the party to end. He is a great communicator, he showed up early, and came prepared with all the right equipment. Thank you DJ Wess, you're the best!

DJ Vybe was hired for our company's 20th Anniversary party. It was a mixed crowd with employees and clients so I was little nervous about the music. DJ Vybe exceeded our expectations, kept the party going and did very well as an MC when we needed him. He is the best DJ by far and will definitely use him for future events! Thank you again for your awesomeness!

It was a great experience working with DJ Rambo. Fantastic communication, great selection of music, really applied himself to the job description. In addition, he lent a hand post-production with the runway area, which was definitely out of his way. Swell guy, great DJ!

We had DJ Rambo come for my daughter’s sweet sixteen. He was a hit. The kids(a little slow) at first got up and the all started to dance. By the end of the party, everyone was disappointed it was over. We had a great party thanks to DJ Rambo
