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.

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

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.

I reached out to DJ Wess on short notice because we needed a DJ for a corporate function. From start to finish, DJ Wess was on-point. His quick communication, professionalism and ability to be quick on his feet put me at ease. I wouldn't hesitate recommend him to a friend or hire him again. Thanks Wess!

I hired Jose Alarcon as DJ to my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. I could not have asked for a better DJ! He was very accommodating and answered the many many questions I had. And best of all, he answered them quickly and was alway courteous and professional. He played all requests that had been mentioned in previous communications. Through his company, I was also able to hire a photo booth with attendant. I can't say enough about Jose's partner. My son has Asperger's and ADHD and was fussy during the event but still wanted to participate. Jose and his partner were incredible with my son. Their compassion truly touched my heart and left a mark. I am so grateful for their graciousness. They were punctual, and even began the event half an hour later because we were held up at the church. They stayed a little later too and at no extra charge! They're worth every cent and then some! I can't thank them enough for everything!

DJ Handzsolo came through for me for a graduation party experience and he listened to my requests. Since it was a very hard year for several students as many were on virtual learning my family decided to have a small gathering for four young people and their immediate family and close friends. He was on time, very courteous and my guests were on the dance floor the whole night. I definitely would use his services again. I am grateful that he responded!!!!!
