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.

Reviews for Aiken djs
Brittany T.
If you are in the search of a crowd pleasing DJ, look no further! My now husband and I booked Seth as our DJ through Thumbtack, and we could not be any happier with the services we received. Seth facilitated both the ceremony and reception music for our wedding. He arrived early to set up, checked in with us frequently throughout the evening, took into consideration our music requests, and modified those requests exquisitely based on our guests and their tastes. Seth is very thorough in what he does, has a great sense of humor, and is a joy to be around. Initially, we were only going to book Seth for DJ services, but a few months before our wedding we decided to add on the Photobooth option he offered. BEST DECISION EVER. The Photobooth was so much fun. It gave our more reserved guests something to participate in and was a huge hit with all ages! He and his team even put together a scrapbook of the photos for us to cherish for years to come. If you are looking for a DJ that is easily reachable, adaptive, and comes prepared, Seth is your guy!!
