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.

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.

Working with Tracy was GREAT!!! He was very professional and laid back!! We were a little off schedule (my fault) and out of order for the introductions but, he was patient and just worked with us! I would recommend him to everyone/anyone looking for a fun and reasonably priced DJ.

We hired Gary for our wedding and I was very pleased with the way he handled his business at the beginning. He was very professional and assured me that our wedding would be a great time and people would be partying on the dance floor all night. He even took the time to speak with my mother to ease her concerns and contact our reception hall regarding setup. This was 8 months before our wedding. I contacted him 2 months before the wedding to begin finalizing details and was assured we had plenty of time and there was no rush. I was contacted 1 week before my wedding by a different DJ from the company, Bruce, who was not aware of all the details of our event but informed me that HE would be the DJ for our wedding. I was a little uneasy with the last minute switch, but he told me that everything would be perfect. I emailed him our "must play" list 3 days before the wedding and the details of all our special dances and never received a reply. He never opened my email and as a result, many of the songs my guests requested on their RSVP cards were not played. Many also tried to request songs the day of the wedding that he did not have. I had to keep telling him what time to do all of the special events of the evening (cake cutting/bouquet and garter toss/intro of bridal party/toasts/etc.) I am a person who prefers to plan every last detail and I felt most of my night was spent trying to put some shred of organization to our evening. Our guests seemed to have a pretty good time, but I was not pleased with how much I had to explain at the last minute. All of these details should have been worked out WEEKS ahead of time with the guy I hired, not the day of with some guy I had only spoken to once for 30 minutes. Knowing what I know now, if I had it to do over again, I would hire a different company so I could actually enjoy my reception.
