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 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.

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 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.

Use Thumbtack to find wedding DJs in your area. Here, you can quickly see which local DJs have the highest ratings and best reviews. You can also see how many times each DJ has been hired, whether they’re responsive and if they’re in high demand.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

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. 

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?

We enjoy DJ Kevy Kev as our DJ. He cater to the needs of the bride and groom playing only the music we requested or gate to him beforehand. He was very tentative to us with our music choices and also how we wanted our music played in when. I will defiantly recommend this DJ to all my family and friends.

Absolutely amazing! Couldn't have asked for a better DJ. He was willing to work with my price range, kept everyone on the dance floor, was open to song suggestion, and entertained everyone. An amazing DJ and person!

A to Z Dj’s are excellent! Working with DJ Cam and Dj Mark was great from the beginning- in lieu of meeting face to face they set up a zoom call and gave us a great presentation of what services they offered as well as videos and pictures of their past work. The level of professionalism was high. During our wedding, they followed the schedule we had set and kept the crowd informed when they needed it and dancing for the rest of the time! Would definitely work with them again! Thank you for helping to make our wedding day great!!

DJ Vybe was fantastic! It was on time and very professional. He kept checking in to see if he needed to tweak anything to make the reception better. He played a variety of music and was able to read our guests very well. Our guests were extremely impressed by him and said that they had a wonderful time!

I honestly can not express how happy we were to have Jarrett DJ our wedding. He was absolutely awesome. He was professional and kept everything on schedule. He played all of the songs we requested and kept an upbeat environment all night. I would highly recommend him for any event.

As a professional Wedding Planner, I am very particular about the Vendors I locate for my clients. I am always looking for the highest levels of professionalism, skill and enthusiasm. I found all of these in DJ Cameron and his Team. They were very efficient and attentive to my bride and groom. They interacted well will the guest and made my job that much easier. Cameron thank you. It was great working with you and seeing you and your Team work the room. The music, lighting and MC services were Top Notch! Will definitely recommend and hire again!

Jarrett was an amazing DJ that I would highly recommend! He DJ’d at my wedding and got everyone dancing! He even came out to dance a little himself to keep the crowd going! One of my guests even wished he could have recorded Jarrett’s song choices because he enjoyed them so much! I can’t believe he delivered such quality with such reasonable prices. I have already recommended him to a friend getting married later this year and will probably hire him again for my in-laws anniversary party! I can’t thank him enough for making my wedding so much fun!

Dj was early and set up on time before party started. Very professional. Only negative thing I can think of was the choice of music for the crowd/event. It was my sons first birthday party so I was hoping for more children based music and 90% of the guest were Hispanic and there was almost no type of Spanish music. I recall about 3-4 Spanish songs in a 4 Hour span. He was open to getting a list of songs from me to play but planning the event was very time consuming and I was unable to do so but if you can send him a playlist in advance I'm sure everything will work out fine. Just make sure you tell him exactly what you want and how you want it. Very reasonable prices as well.
