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.

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.

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.

First DJ I ever booked. Last DJ I will ever book! He was awesome, there is no need for me to look for any others. He was very professional from the first time we met. I informed him that I was hosting a car show that would range from ages 18-60 and he had the perfect playlist. I received compliments on how well he did. Definitely booking for next year!!

Michael was the DJ for my "destination" wedding. He was incredibly easy to deal with. We talked over the phone a couple of times and contacted via email a lot (my preference). We talked over the phone the week of the wedding to make sure he could pronounce the wedding party's names, the order of events, etc. He kept the guest entertained until the wedding party arrive (we ran a little late). The wedding was amazing and numerous guests said they loved the D.J. He played songs right in line with what I had said I was looking for and avoided what I did not want. I don't have one single complaint and would highly recommend him to anyone getting married in the Charleston area. He was awesome! He even took some pictures and videos for the fun of it and emailed them to me the next day. He was the perfect DJ!

Art was the Dj for our wedding at Coosaw Creek Country Club. He was on time and he provided music for the ceremony and reception. The quality of his equipment was pretty good. Our only regret was not providing him with a specific playlist for the reception. What could have been better was his interaction with the crowd to "amp up" the party a bit and get people on the dance floor. Also, there was no type of excitement in his voice when he did our introduction. Art definitely knows his work, but we would recommend him for an older crowd.

Art & wife Lisa did an incredible job helping me with my husbands military retirement party. Not only was I looking for a DJ but at 7 mo's pregnant, I needed someone to organize & decorate the venue. They were resourceful & acquired all my rental needs, decorations & happily fulfilled all my wishes/requests. They highlighted those areas important/special to me by including lighting effects..really brought out the "wow" factor! Their hard work & creative additions made my party special & memorable. I received so many compliments by guests & most importantly my husband! Huge & heartfelt thank you to Art & Lisa for your time invested, hard work & professionalism. It was a pleasure working with you both...great job!!!
