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 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 Men-Yo was extremely professional throughout the entire process of my wedding. Weeks before, he made sure we had a detailed picture of what we expected of him and how we wanted our reception to flow. He was sure to stay in communication with me throughout the entire event. At the wedding, he went out of his way and arrived about an hour earlier than the ceremony to set his equipment up (as we were using the venue for both the ceremony and the reception) and continued to be in communication with me to make sure everything was the way we wanted it. When the reception kicked off, he did a great job of MCing and guided our reception through the first dance, food being served, Toasts, cake cutting, etc. DJ Men-Yo does an amazing job of reading the crowd and makes sure to play the tunes that'll keep the party going and make the night more enjoyable for everyone present. After our wedding, I received many compliments from our guests about what a great job DJ did at the reception and also that many of them would want to hire him for their own events! Also, a few days after my wedding I was speaking to my family and they actually told me that after the reception was over when my bride and I had our send-off, DJ Men-Yo went out of his was way to help cleanup the trash and move tables with the rest of our family there. This was not anywhere in his job description and he didn't have to help at all! This just goes to show the character of DJ Men-Yo and what youre getting when you hire a professional like himself. Bottom line: Your wedding/banquet/special event is already stressful enough. You COULD go really cheap and be adding another stressful element to your day by hiring "the local guy" or your friend. OR you can hire a TRUE professional who makes sure your day or special event is exactly how you want it and goes above and beyond what you ask of him. DJ Men-Yo provides a very affordable price tag but provides WAY more value than the price may seem. I am very happy I hired DJ Men-Yo and I can tell you, I as well as my family and friends, will be using him from here on out for our MCing/DJ needs! Thank you DJ Men-Yo for a great night!
