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.

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.

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 Coley Cole was awesome. He was on point from start to finish. He was arrived an hour and 45 minutes early to set up and is top of the line professional. Very skilled at his craft, easy going personality, and happy to play any request from old school to up to date top 100 music. I was extremely pleased to have him dj my wife's 40th birthday party. I recommend him to anyone looking for the best quality DJ. Rate him A++.

Best DJ/MC we've seen in Memphis! 🥳🎧🎤🎛. I hired him for my wedding reception. He was very easy to work with, early to set up, and precisely catered to what we wanted. My friends and I talked a lot after the reception how great the DJ was and that we really want to hire him again! He dressed to the occasion and was professional the entire night. Finally, I was especially appreciate of his flexibility and adaptability when my reception veered way off script. It is nice having a DJ who intuitively understood that things were moving along differently than planned. Most of all, everyone had a blast!! Thank you Ron for helping to make my wedding really fun and special!

Had a party for my 13 year old daughter. DJ Ron crushed it. Everything was age appropriate and dropped some stuff for the adults that was still clean. Very responsive, on time and nothing but a professional and a gentleman. Would highly recommend him for any and all occasions.

We can't thank Rhythm Nation 65 and DJ Ron enough for being part of our St. Jude benefit. This event would not have been what it was without their help! They set up early, and showed up to the event on time. They played great music and kept the party going until the end. Five stars!
