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 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.

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.

DJ 716 was the DJ for my wedding. The music was great we had a good time but I feel like some things did not go right. For example, before introducing the bridal party, we wanted our parents to be introduced. My parents were announced and my father wasn't even in the room. Another example was that the night ended fairly abruptly and we would've liked to have the DJ for a bit longer but was cut short. I would recommend DJ 716 but just make sure you sort out ALL the details ahead of time. Don't leave any stone un-turned.

We researched the DJs that were offered through Thumbtack and wow are we glad we chose 716 Entertainment. We were more than happy with them. Very professional and a true pleasure to work with. The BEST DJ we have ever had and we look forward to working with them again when the opportunity arises.

Well all I can say is if your a Dj, you have to talk. She didn't. Nothing we pre arranged for was said. I asked she announce the guest of honor once an hour, not once did she. I asked to have a song dedicated to my boys, not done. I wrote everything down and gave her the sheet ahead of time but still wasn't done. She was late arriving and for a while the music was playing and we didn't even know it because the volume was so low. The party was perfect except for the dj. Nice girl but Dj isn't her thing....

Bill was an Excellent DJ for my Nieces Graduation Party eventhough the weather wasn't the very best with rain and some wind he made sure that the event ran as smooth as possible with a ton of favorite music choices that we all enjoyed listening and dancing to. Everyone there that showed up had a Ball even the very happy Graduate who appreciated everything that was there. I would personally appoint Bill as your next DJ entertainer for your next special event. Very affordable and as well very professional and nice as can be.
