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.

DJ DaHWu was off the the chain. And my kids loved him from age 18 down to 6. My six year old twins are already talking about retaining his services for their party. LOL!!!

Khol was so awesome! He drove a few hours, in the pouring rain, to DJ at our reception. He even played some tunes for the little ones! Khol was incredibly responsive and really cared about what I wanted to hear at my reception. He was thoughtful and genuine. I highly recommend him! 😁

Wow!! DJKB was a great addition to our 4th of July celebration! He was not only a great DJ who provided awesome entertainment but so polite and friendly!! Next time I will give you my address, Kenny 🤣😜😜 and I would highly recommend his services, as long as it’s not on the date of our party because we will be using him again!!

Caroline was responsive to my requests from the get-go. She arrived promptly and set up and played excellent music all evening. She provided great atmosphere and responsive to requests during the evening. She played at a nice level during dinner and then increased the beat when people got dancing. People stayed to dance to last song. A sign of a good party but also of the DJ. I fully recommend her services for your event.

Whatever envision for your upcoming music and lighting projects, I trust that Tim can offer it for you. Tim has the experience - from nightclubs to weddings to parties to fundraising events. Tim worked seamlessly with our reception staff and helped keep our timeline on point. Most importantly, he worked with us before the wedding to get a feel for what we envisioned for the evening, then let Tim take it from there. When you're working an event with guests from 8 to 88, it's challenging to cater to them all; Tim was up to the challenge. If you're looking for someone pleasant, pragmatic, and professional, you're in the right place. In the future, should I ever be in need of a DJ, I know who to call. Thanks for everything, Tim.
