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?

DJ Cam was amazing. He answered my emails promptly and even called me to introduce himself and tell me more about him and the services he could provide.

Sean did a great job as DJ at our Father Daughter Dance! He arrived early to set-up and played a variety of music during the night. Our students and their fathers had a great time!

DJ Ajaxx was everything you look for in a DJ. He responded to all of my messages quickly and was so easy to work with, making sure he knew exactly how the playlist should come together. We held a graduation party in my back yard and he did an amazing job of keeping the music and volume respectful for my neighbors, while keeping it fun for my daughter and friends. And the mix of music was perfect. Can't wait for another event just to have him come out again!

I chose this DJ for my wedding. I had no idea that the DJ is also expected to do the ceremony music as well (hint to anyone booking a wedding). He was able to come in early for this on EXTREMELY short notice. He found requested music that is really niche (Japanese and Euro-EDM). The music played was really good and to my taste and I can't believe he played Tunak tunak tun, I had to run back in and dance to that. He was just so awesome in person and really kept the party going and engaged. I've been to many weddings and heard many stories of things going wrong, this guy did EVERYTHING right!

I hired DJ Reese for my daughter's birthday party. He was great to work with and kept the party moving. He played a great mix of songs while accommodating all of their requests. The kids had a great time and my daughter was really happy. Thank you for helping to make it a great night.

It was great working with Jarrett! My husband and I found him a little last minute for our wedding but he was very flexible and quick to reply. He took all of our requests into consideration, played the songs we requested, and even let guests make requests during the reception. We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ/MC! He made our wedding very entertaining and one to remember! Thank you so much!

There’s so much to worry about when planning a wedding so the last thing you want to worry about is your vendors. Robert was so attentive to all of our needs. He kept in constant communication with us making sure he clearly understood and delivered our vision which, as a bride, makes you feel as though you are in good hands. On the actual day of, it was raining and I was pretty sad since we were planning an outdoor wedding but Robert checked up on us to ensure we were ok and to reassure us that everything would work out. And boy oh boy was he right. The wedding was perfect. Robert arrived early and rocked the house all night long. Everyone danced all night and we even got a special break dancing set from the dj himself which my guest loved. It was a Sunday wedding but from the way Robert had my guest partying you would never had known Monday was the next day. It’s not often you find a vendor that delivers a personal touch to his work and makes you feel like they truly care about making your big day special. Robert did just that. Hire him. You won’t regret it. Thanks for everything Robert!!
