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.

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

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. 

Reviews for Cedar Hill djs

I'd original contact Rue 3 to provide DJ services for my husband's birthday party, and was giving a very reasonable quote for 4 hours of service. Then one of my clients requested a DJ for her party and I went back to Rue 3 to see if he would be able to DJ for my clients party and he happily obliged. I was very please with the service rendered. Mr. Irvin was professional, fun, and energetic, he made sure he catered to all generations in attendance. I could not have asked for a better outcome and I will be recommending him to all of my clients, family and friends needing DJ entertainment services. I defiantly received more than what I paid for!

Horn Global did a great job for my husband's 50th birthday party! He played all the old school music that he liked. After we sang the birthday song, he played New Orleans music. My husband is from New Orleans!! We had family and friends there and we had our own second line. Later on, he put the fog lights and smoke machine on and it took the party to another level. He was prompt and very professional. You need Horn Global at your event! It's been about 2 weeks and folks are still talking about the DJ from the party! Everyone had a great time. We ended up getting an extra hour because the party was still going. You need this guy at your party! You will not be disappointed.
