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.

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?

We had DJ Yung Red DJ our son's 18th birthday party. She was fantastic! She reached out ahead of time to make sure she had the music the kids wanted, was great with the kids and open to requests! She was very professional and flexible and the kids had a FANTASTIC time. We will hire her again next time we need a DJ! She was also very reasonably priced!

DJ Bombos is more than just a DJ, he has become our family friend that we happily refer to others. He DJ'D my sisters 50th Surprise party and everything we asked of him regarding request for songs, he did it. He was very professional and did the event with a smile. He showed up early to set up and provided the best service. I'm gonna do more events soon and DJ Bombos is the only one I will call just so I know our event will be perfect. Thank you DJ Bombos you are amazing!

My new bride, Leslie, and I enjoyed having Bill for our DJ. His heart for being dedicated to his client outweighs his selection of music. We had a great time allowing him to be our DJ for our wedding. I suggest you give him a call to have him at your next function.

DJ Dubya was fantastic to work with! When we hired him for our wedding he said he hadn't gotten to DJ a wedding yet but you never would have known! He was very responsive, professional, and easy to work with. He did absolutely everything we asked and did a great job. I definitely recommend hiring him for your next event!

Lunaman was amazing to work with during the planning of our wedding! Lunaman was so responsive with our questions, laidback, but professional. He met with us before the covid-19 shutdown (before any restrictions were in place) and still was willing to DJ our wedding. Unfortunately, due to CDC/state restrictions we had to postpone our wedding day to July. Lunaman was willing to move the date for us but he was unfortunately already booked. That was our biggest sorrow from the wedding cancelation! We really loved Lunaman and wanted him to DJ for us. Even though he didn't have to, Lunaman went out of his way to set us up with another DJ at our price point. Go ahead and book him, he's awesome!!!

Best DJ ever! Our daughter's wedding reception was so much fun! As MC he kept everything moving and on time. Everyone was on the dance floor dancing the night away. Duane was also most helpful with choosing music for the ceremony and also with the flow of the evening. I highly recommend him!
