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.

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 much do DJs charge per hour?

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 hired Dave to DJ our wedding as we liked that he was about playing appropriate music during the wedding but would also play anything we requested. And if he didn't have the song we were able to connect to our phones and have him play it. But what I really liked about his service was he truly was more then just a DJ. Leading up to the wedding we were able to call and ask any questions pertaining to the wedding. We made an outline of what order we wanted events to take place such as ceremony, dinner, toast, cake cutting, Dances, etc. During the wedding he made sure to stick to that outline and always double checked to make sure we were ready for the next event or if we needed to wait X amount of time. I would recommend him to anyone looking to hire a DJ for their wedding.

DJ Mercer was a complete blast at our wedding! At first, my now husband just want someone to press play on a playlist, but after meeting with DJ Mercer, we both knew we had to have him play at our wedding. He is very down to earth guy with a big smile and heart. He made sure that everything ran smoothly for our big day. All of our guests had a great time and he made them feel involved in our wedding. He also brought a couple of large TV’s to play photos of us we gathered over the years. Also, I don't know how but he convinced our videographer to stay a little longer then we hired him for. It was very much appreciated! He took the time to meet with us and get an idea of what songs we wanted to play in different parts of the wedding. Neither of us knew how to dance and he taught us before the wedding. You can’t go wrong with DJ Mercer, I completely recommend him to anyone for any type of event! He even distracted and danced with my overbearing mom so I could have a carefree time :), Wedding Entertainer,, Wedding Entertainer,

We contracted with Rick to be the DJ at our wedding reception. From the very beginning we were impressed with his professionalism, excellent communications and attention to detail. He always showed up early for our meetings and the event itself. His equipment was top-notch (we especially liked his light show). At the event itself, he arrived early and asked us where he should set up. He was willing to coordinate with our officiator and asked if we had any last minute changes to our play list. Once the wedding/reception began, he was the guy who kept everything running. He was in constant contact with my Best Man and made sure that we were in the right place and time for the various events. He was an excellent master-of-ceremonies and made all the introductions and announcements flawlessly. His choice of music and willingness to take special requests made him a hit with our guests. He kept everyone dancing throughout the night, He showed a genuine enthusiasm for making our wedding a success. At the end of the night, he broke his equipment down and left the venue so that you couldn't tell he had been there. We heartily recommend Rick Hall! He is so much more than a simple DJ and you will not be disappointed if you should be smart enough to choose him for your next event!
