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.

We were really excited to have DJ Suave at our wedding. Unfortunately, he had family stuff come up and was unable to attend, but he sent his wife and his cousin to DJ the wedding instead, which I really appreciated. I didn't feel like the quality of the replacements were what we were looking for, it was really hard to hear them talk and the MC was a bit lacking, but they played great music and kept the party going, so no harm no foul :)

Quick on communication and willing to meet outside business hours, Rick is well versed in music of all eras and brings lots of variety to his events. However we found that his sound setup/speakers did not provide the quality we were looking for. I would not recommend his service to a tuned ear but his pricing would let the average ears enjoy his services. Rick had to be requested to play requests that he had received. While we understand the DJ is in charge of keeping the party going and the dance floor busy, ignoring multiple requests that are not on the "do not play" list was frowned upon by us. He also agreed to execute certain duties as an MC and then didn't follow through.

I couldn't be happier with my decision the hire Joe from Noteworthy DJ's for my brother's wedding reception. His prices were affordable and his service was excellent! Upon first contacting Joe, he was prompt in responding to emails. He met with us prior to the reception to discuss our wants and needs. Joe was respectful, professional, and really easy to work with. On the day of the reception he was set up and ready to go early. His equipment was great. During the reception he played music that we had requested and some of his own selections that got everybody out of their seats to dance. Joe was attentive and helped us stick to our 4-hour timeline.The reception was a great party and we attribute much of that success to Joe! I wouldn't hesitate to hire Joe again in the future!
