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. 

Reviews for Lake Oswego djs

DJ Mercer knocked it out of the park at my wedding. He had enough speakers, mics, and lighting to have three different music set ups. One for outside ceremony, two for outside cocktail, and three for the dance party. He was well organized and easy to work with in the planning process. During the reception he kept things moving and excelled as an MC getting the party going. Overall the party was tons of fun and guests enjoyed themselves greatly with DJ Mercer in the booth.

Dave did a great job! We hired him to DJ a friend’s 60th birthday party. He showed up early to be ready before the party started. He played perfect background music during dinner and after dinner he really kicked it up a notch and got everyone on the dance floor! Then everyone danced the night away! He really made the party a success. Everyone had a fantastic time. The music selection was excellent and he happily took requests! Thanks Dave for making the party so special!

David was the best hire of our wedding! He was very detailed in making sure we got what we wanted & needed during our reception. It's not just the music..he provided order during the chaos by announcing each dance and specialty item we requested. He was responsive to all messages and questions leading up to our event which put my mind at ease knowing that was one part of the planning that I didn't have to worry about. The equipment he brought worked wonderfully and we had no issues with the mics during the many speeches & toasts. 100% would recommend A Family Friendly DJ to anyone looking to throw a great party!
