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.

Alex with DJ Vibe is a great choice for your event's DJ needs. He worked well with me planning my wedding ceremony and reception. The songs I asked for were played at the right times and he was an excellent MC. Thank you so much Alex! I highly recommend DJ Vibe.

I am so happy we had DJ Aravin at our event. We had 220 graduate students at our event and he made sure everyone was up and dancing when the time was appropriate. We also greatly appreciated how he listened to our request for lighter music during dinner, then a variety of music after dinner. He showed up early to make sure everything was set up for our event, and he stayed after our original time as the party continued due to the great music. Having DJ Aravin at our event allowed for our guest to be happy and be able to dance the night away. The extras that were provided were also amazing, our guest loved the lights and fog that were provided. We definitely recommend DJ Aravin for your event if you want people to have a blast and be able to dance the night away! Thank you so much DJ Aravin for making our event the best!

Had great dance music. Worked with requests from bride and groom for special moments of ceremony and reception. Would use him again if I ever need a DJ for a future event.

Crawford did a great job with our DJ setup and the photobooth was a hit! He was so kind to work with us through a couple bumps we had along the way and the end product was awesome!

Words cannot even explain how satisfied we were with JJ at our wedding reception. I am so lucky to have found him. He traveled all the way to College Station for our wedding and was very prompt and ahead of schedule! I had only spoken with him via email and phone conversations, but that was enough to calm my nerves. Good DJ's can be hard to come by and I had heard so many horror stories about awful DJ' s who had ruined the night, but least to say JJ was beyond amazing! He was very professional and super accommodating. He also was the MC for the reception and even though I sent him an itinerary I ended up changing it up last minute, but he was very cooperative and made it to be no big deal at all. We had so many compliments from our guests about the music selections and we had only gave him a handful of songs and he matched the genre perfectly for what we wanted for each part of the night. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend him to anyone who needs a DJ for any occasion!
