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 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 Prime provided exactly what we needed. Came on time and even stayed without question, later than agreed upon. Took requests from guests and even helped teach some new dance steps to new songs wgen asked.

Charlie was amazing! He was well organized and had great communication with us prior to the big event to make sure everything was perfect. He knew just what kind of music to play to keep guests dancing and having fun! I recommend Charlie for ANY event that needs a DJ!!

We requested a D.J. on very short notice and was very lucky to find DJ Dman. He was 45 minutes early to set up. Upon setting up he found his amp was not working and called for a replacement which took about 30 minutes. This was the only issue for the event. He had an excellent performance. He had downloaded all of the songs on our play list and was able to play other music requested by our guest. We had a very informal format and adapted to changes quite easily and willingly. Our guest were very pleased with his performance and all had a wonderful time at our daughter's 21st outdoor Birthday Party. We would've use him again and highly recommend his to others who need a DJ.

We hired DJ Teena for my daughter’s 16th birthday party. She was great start to finish!She responded very quickly to our inquiry, was very reasonably priced for the area, and provided excellent music for our party. She was open to playing any type of music we requested and knew what was “current” for our teenager and her friends. She had everyone up and ready to party! Would definitely recommend her for your next event!

The Williams family was incredible at making our day come to life. If you want a family friendly but FUN DJ this is the group for you. They set up an incredible photo booth for us and put together a custom photo book to keep as a really wonderful gift. They spoke to use extensively about our vision and I wouldn’t change a single thing about their part in our day. They are a really wonderful family business and I cannot recommend them enough to anyone looking to get down on their wedding day. I would,without hesitation, book then again for a wedding. Regardless of the price, they are worth every penny. Thanks Williams family!!
