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.

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.

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 Rique, was absolutely wonderful! He played all the right music at all the right times. He kept the beats rolling and everyone loved to dance. He was professional and punctual. His eclectic choice of music kept everyone happy. DJ Rique accommodated us with all we asked for. I will definitely be calling him for any DJ needs I have in the future. His sound system was top notch and sounded terrific. He was great to work with and the value was 10 out of 10! Thanks DJ Rique!

Beyond impressed!!! We could not have asked for a better DJ for our event! DJ Scoobie was professional, timely and full of energy. He knew how to work the crowd and everyone loved him! He also helped MC for most of the night and I would highly recommend him as an MC as well. We will definitely hire him again! Thanks Scoobie!!

DJ Teena was amazing! I gave her very little guidance and she managed to play exactly the kind of music we like. She kept the vibe upbeat the whole evening and even danced with us! Highly recommend her for any event.

He’s fun, genuine, & our guest couldn’t stay off the dance floor!

The first thing you need to know about Eric is his professionalism far and away exceeds that of any other DJ we considered. We originally had a Band scheduled for our wedding because honestly many of the DJ's we spoke with seemed far too "cheesy" and "dated" for a contemporary wedding. Other DJ's on this site kept blowing up our phones with "rates", then things they could "do for us", then more "discounted rates" when we did not respond right away, and it seemed as though all of our original fears about cheesy DJ's were coming true. And then Eric called. Eric exuded a delightful confidence and calm on the phone. Never once did we feel pressured to add anything to our wedding reception like fog machines, lights, or any other "add-on's" we simply did not need. He spoke to us as though we were his only and MOST important clients. He walked us through his song worksheet step by step, sent us a very professional contract with easy to pay deposit options, and made sure we were confident our special day was going to flow along smoothly. Regarding his performance: I am an executive of a Fortune 500 company and have attended corporate events, private events, and everything in between. I have seen million dollar productions, celebrity performers and local performers. Eric's presence is as polished as any I've witnessed. His mannerisms on the mic remind me of a Ryan Seacrest, and his professionalism with the crowd in such a setting is truly remarkable. In reference to the music, Eric knows exactly when to slow things down and when to inject the party with the right amount of energy. His accomplishments as a multi-faceted DJ & MC are evident as his mastery of music and his craft are second to none. At the end of the night we left him a gratuity, but as I write this, wish it would have been larger. Hopefully this review will suffice. Should you require a DJ for ANY event, you need to consider Eric, for he is truly one of the best.

After doing our 5 hour wedding reception at Alhambra Hall this August, I would 100% recommend Shane to anybody getting married soon. He was an absolute professional from the get go. From the beginning, Shane did a great job keeping in touch with my fiance and I. Most of our other vendors, we had to continually reach out to in order to check on the status of everything, however, Shane made sure to follow up with us multiple times to ensure everything was planned the way we wanted it. During the wedding day, he was on time and had everything he needed. His sound equipment was perfect and sounded amazing. He did an amazing job feeling the crowd and playing music that kept our celebration rocking! We wanted our reception to be fun, and we knew the DJ was key in that, and from our very first meeting, we had confidence that Shane would be able to make that happen for us. Sure enough, he was everything we expected and more. I also want to commend him on his ability to engage with the crowd, make announcements, and as a whole, make everybody feel good. I've been to receptions where the DJ spoke way too much and was just awkward, and others where they didn't engage the crowd at all, which made for a boring night. Shane was perfect with this. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better DJ experience. Not only were his services exceptional, but his personality was a pleasure to work with. A genuine and very personable guy, Shane was a huge part in making our day filled with fun, special, and unforgettable memories.

Pat Taylor of Ice Box Productions was AWESOME!! From the day we started looking for a wedding DJ to the best night of our lives, Pat was there! He was a big part of making our wedding such a success and fun night for everyone! He worked with my family on special requests, brought up great ideas that we didn't think to ask about, had a smooth and personal planning process from start to finish, and made sure the guests had FUN! He did such a great job guiding and announcing the event that several people asked if he was a family friend. He is now! We highly recommend him for any event! He's affordable and brings more than you could buy! Super happy! 5+ stars. Thanks Pat! Cheers!
