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, itโ€™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 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 DJโ€™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.

Read our cost guide, โ€œHow much does a DJ cost?โ€

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.

DJ Avalanche, or as we at my school know him, DJ Denmark is the DJ who we get requests for the most from my students. He has done over a dozen dances for our school and always puts out a great show. Hire him and you will not regret it!

In addition to being a tremendously attentive and flexible DJ, who adjusts his playlist to match the room and mood, Dennis offers a lot that other DJs cannot compete with. As a member of award winning bands, and an absolutely amazing sax player, Dennis adds that "extra something" to really make the event memorable. He really added an additional level of class and novelty to our evening. I don't know if there are better DJ experiences out there, but I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with Dennis.

DJ Avelanche was hired for my son's celebration of life. He was professional, punctual, had a great personality, and played to the crowd like you would expect a pro to do. This was my first time hiring a DJ and he exceeded my expectations. I would hire him again and highly recommend him.

DJ Rick was great to have at our wedding. Not only being early to the party to set up, he was able to get the party moving along.

David Child was the DJ for our wedding reception and did a fantastic job. He gets very specific information for your event - what you want and don't want and is great at following through with that. Everyone at the wedding had a great time with excellent music. He gives great suggestions if you need ideas for your event as well. I would most definitely recommend David to anyone looking for a DJ.

Brandon was so amazing the entire time during our wedding! From hitting all our requests to coming up with song ideas on the spot, he was the best dj we have worked with! His equipment was great and music quality was perfect. We could not have asked for a better person to dj our special day. Thank you again Brandon! We will be asking for your services for ALL our future events ๐Ÿ™‚

Significa and DJ Collin are amazing!! He hired Significa for our wedding where our #1 priority was to have a great party with our friends and family... Significa's DJ services and Magic Mirror photo booth knocked it out of the park! From the beginning DJ Collin was on professional and easy to work with. He helped keep us on track during the planning process to making sure he knew what key songs to play when, where/how to help with announcements on the day of, plus got to know our style to fill in the rest. All of this made the day of completely smooth and seamless! DJ Collin did an amazing job of keeping the dance floor full the entire night. My guest LOVED that he not only took requests but also played them in a very timely manner. He kept the party going right to the end which is exactly what we wanted. We had originally booked Significa just for the DJ Services, but decide last minute to add the Magic Mirror photo booth. The photo booth was one of kind and a HUGE hit! Our friends and family loved it! The props were on point, the attendant was friendly and so helpful show all the bells and whistles of the Magic Mirror. Not only was it a hit the day of but we get all the pictures afterwards! We really couldn't be happier with Significa and so glad to have had them as part of our big day. I'd 100% recommend Significa!!

We had THE Bobby Brown DJ our party, and had an amazing time! We had music videos on the wall with a projector, and it really made it a good time. He even told us to send in requests!

DJ Dane is the best! He is so flexible and accommodating. We requested him about 2 weeks before our wedding and he was quick to respond to emails and texts. He made sure that every song we wanted for our wedding was on his list, even the hard to find songs that we couldn't even find, he found! He even took the extra step in choosing songs for us based off of our musical preference. Dane also had no problem making announcements for us throughout the night, even last minute announcements we requested at the last minute. He does not make you feel pressured or stressed either. I didn't have one of the songs picked our until the day of, and he was totally on top of it and had the song downloaded already! He really made our night special by choosing our last dance song of the night for us and it was the most fitting and perfect way to end our night! Our guests complimented us on having such a fabulous DJ as well! Thank you for being there for us at our wedding! P.s. If you are a Third Eye Blind fan, DJ Dane is the DJ you MUST have at your wedding!
