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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

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 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.

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?

I hired DJ Problem for my son's 17th birthday party. He responded quickly to my inquiry and provided a reasonable quote. DJ Problem arrived at the venue early and has a professional setup, and a variety of music, delivering an outstanding party experience. I recommend DJ Problem for your next corporate or family event. Also, I was in search of a 360 Photobooth. DJ Problem referred a couple of vendors, and I booked with one of the companies. Again, I received a quick response and a reasonable quote. The 360 Photobooth also has a professional setup that coordinates well with the DJs. The overall quality and presentation were excellent. I would book both again! Book DJ Problem and ask for the 360 Photobooth referral.

I have used Pay The DJ for an adult birthday party and a community Fall Carnival. He was awesome at both events! For the community event he played the appropriate music for both adults and kids. I have referred him to a couple of friends that were also happy with his services. Pay The DJ never disappoints!

DJ Tony made my party a night to remember. All the guests loved him. His music mixers were just mind blowing and fresh. Tony knows his music and how to interact with a crowd. Tony has top notch equipment, speakers and lights. The DJ is such a huge part of your party and if you want a fun, poppin’, dancing til your feet hurt event- DJ Tony is your guy. He is the guaranteed full service party package with a great personality. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

We hired Flatlyne to DJ our 18 y.o. daughter's surprise birthday party. They arrived promptly and set up with time to spare. It was an awesome evening, and the Flatlyne DJ was a huge part of making that happen. Q was super engaging, and high energy, start to finish. Reasonably priced, and totally worth it. I would recommend to anyone looking

Chris was everything you need as a wedding DJ. For the ceremony, he looped and transitioned our songs seamlessly, and even picked a great "walk off" song (which I had completely forgotten to give him). I had no music list, and he just handled it. That is MASSIVE for wedding planning when you are already overbooked, overworked, and overscheduled. I am so glad we had Chris as our DJ. Highly recommend.

Our DJ experience was the best for so many reasons. He was responsive, arrived early and was a good sport (bc I put him in the sun 😬). Not to mention his energy, engagement, and song selections were all perfect for our party! P.s. We had a double celebration… My daughter’s open heart surgery anniversary and her 1st birthday party and he was compassionate about that. Definitely my DJ for all future events!

Full Dive Audio is the absolute best!! They made my event the most perfect experience. They were very professional and personable! Super punctual and helpful with set up and clean up. Having not hired a DJ in years I was lost on what to do & Tyler helped guide me!! His playlist was amazing and he made last minute changes that were exactly what I wanted. I can’t wait to have another party and have them DJ!

Go DJ Go was wonderful. He was SO easy to work with and made the day a lot of fun. Needless to say, the wedding did not go as expected, but Go DJ Go was able to keep everything on track and keep the night going. He had great games and really keep the crowd engaged. However, I think what I appreciated the most was how easy he was to get in contact with- He ALWAYS picked up the phone or returned a text/email promptly which was a God-send when you're stressing out about EVEYTHING leading up to a wedding.

I hired Shon-C for my upcoming wedding this fall. He was quick to reply and set up a time for my fiancé and I to meet him before the big day. During our meeting he answered every question I had, gave us a playlist of songs he thought we might like based on a questionnaire we previously filled out, he is professional, easy going and he made me feel at ease. So happy that we will have Shon-C DJ at our wedding.
