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.

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.

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.

DJ SQUEAK, played the music and made it happen at my 60th Gatsby birthday party, the guests gave me so many compliments on the DJ, all I can say is if I ever have another event and need a DJ, his number is the only one in my contacts!

DJ Don provided music, karaoke, MC, photography, and slideshow/music videos for our wedding reception. He was great at keeping us on a schedule and flexible when we needed to alter the itinerary. The music was great dance music with karaoke that made the entire crowd chime in. We received over 400 pictures of great quality on a disc at the end of our reception that we will enjoy for forever. He was absolutely awesome and very decently priced! I would definitely recommend him for anyone looking for a DJ for any kind of event!

Swagrito did the music for my wedding then the DJ-ing for the reception. We just had certain songs that we wanted played (intro, first dances) and left the rest to him. When there were problems with outlets at our venue he solved the problem himself with low drama on our high stress day. I would highly recommend swagrito (already passed his number to a close friend) he is very professional

DJ Don did a great job at our wedding reception at Clarksville's "The Belle Hollow" venue. The pictures his staff took during our party didn't interfere with what our professional photographer was doing, but instead enhanced everyone's enjoyment for the evening. He followed our musical directions PERFECTLY, & chose a mix of songs that kept the dance floor full all night, but never with any songs that parents might have questioned as their 6-8 year olds took the floor among our adult guests. My (new) wife and I HIGHLY recommend his services.

When I was first contacted by DJKB I was a nervous wreck about my entire wedding plans. It was difficult finding a DJ who was as versatile as I needed him to be. I needed a DJ who could play some oldies, different varieties of Spanish music, and also the popular songs we hear on the radio every day. DJKB rose to the challenge without hesitation. When we talked over the phone he calmed me down and assured me that music would be the least of my worries. He sincerly cared about making our wedding a memorable one and it definitely showed. My wedding had a lot going on and through the entire process he was working towards getting my guests on the dance floor. He was extremely diligent and patient throughout the entire night and I greatly appreciate that. He was very friendly to everyone and knew how to speak with the family I hold near and dear, from my cool cousins to my sweet mother to my crazy dad. I would recommend him to ANYONE because he seriously has the talent to tend to anyone's musical needs. He's fun and one of the nicest people I have met right off the bat. Thank You Kenny for everything you did for us!
