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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

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.

How do you find wedding DJs?

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.

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.

Wes Cryder was the DJ/MC for my wedding at the Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh South, spending about 6 hours with us. He left nothing to be desired, and has my highest recommendation. Mature and well spoken, but also knows how to party. DJ Cryder, I'd hire you again in a second, thanks so much for your excellent work.

Our experience with DJ Kelvin was phenomenal! He and his staff were very responsive leading up to the event. They answered all of our questions and accommodated our requests in a timely manner. The night of the event, once DJ Kelvin got everyone up and dancing, the party never stopped. It was a lot of fun and he brought the perfect energy to the event.

DJ-Tone was extremely easy to work with, very personable and professional, and totally delivered on rocking our wedding reception! From the very beginning of planning everything, Tony was extremely professional, well organized, and gave us great recommendations on how to plan the reception events, song order, etc. Everyone really enjoyed the music selection and the MC/DJ coordination was right on target! Duane the MC was super helpful and kept the reception on schedule. They both helped everything run very smoothly and I would definitely highly recommend Tony for any DJ-entertainment need. Thanks Tony!!

DJ Plan D was such an essential part of our wedding reception. He was very flexible as to what type of music we wanted to hear and what songs should be played at what time. Being a same sex couple we were worried that we wouldn’t be able find a DJ that would do what we wanted but DJ Plan D really made our day unforgettable. He is very busy so I recommend being flexible about times to meet him before the big day. I presented Him with a very specific plan about how I wanted things to go and he made everything happen how we wanted it to. Such a great value and such a great time! Thanks so much!
