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?

I’m not sure how thumbtack usually works because I have never used it before. But the person who came to my event as a dj was not the same person I had already communicated with via dj Donnie on thumbtack. I paid my deposit for a dj to one person’s cash app and paid another person the rest of the funds via cash app after the event. I found this to be very awkward. Before I hired and after I paid a deposit I explained that I wanted a dj that would engage the crowd and get them on the dance floor. The dj that showed up didn’t engage the crowd at all unless I asked him to announce specific things. This was pretty disappointing as was the crappy sound system. When the dj did make announcements it was barely understandable because of the popping and rattling coming from the speakers. The dj was a nice guy, showed up on time, and played some of the songs on my list, so I did give him a very decent tip despite my husband saying he was a horrible dj.

I had a special request for DJ Tone to make me a mashup song for a flash mob dance. He worked with my budget, promptly made changes at my request, and got my song to me within a few days! Sounds awesome, just like I imagined it. He is professional and responsive. I would recommend this guy for any job! Thanks DJ Tone

I hired Tommy Chambers to DJ my wedding reception in April 2014. I would recommend Tommy to anyone looking for a DJ! He was so easy to work with, very professional, and punctual. My father was very impressed that Tommy was set up and ready to go while other vendors were still preparing. I had compliments from friends and family members of all ages that they loved the music selection. Tommy also did a great job of making sure the reception flowed nicely and helped keep us on schedule. I would recommend him to anyone for any occasion! My husband and I were very impressed and grateful we found such a great, genuine person to DJ our reception.

Hi. HB was a great DJ! I hired him after a friend recommended him. He was very professional and responsive. He showed up on time with all of his equipment to set up. He was an expert at getting the party going and had everyone dancing. His beautiful and talented wife accompanied him and really was a star! Highly recommend if you want to ensure a fun party.

Tony was beyond amazing. He DJ’d my daughters Sweet Sixteen Party this past weekend and I can’t say enough good things about him. From the start of the process he was always very responsive to my questions and communication. He arrived early and was set up and playing music 30min prior to start time (which was great since kids were already arriving). From start to finish, he kept the crowd engaged and the kids dancing. While this was a party of mainly 15-18 year olds, we also had plenty of adults and several younger children as well and everyone enjoyed the party. He was accommodating with all of our request and made sure that my daughter was the spotlight of her party. His professionalism in this field is unmatched! If you are looking for a DJ, please give him the opportunity, I’m confident with saying, you won’t be disappointed!!! Thanks DJ T-French!

Patrick is amazing, super organized and professional. Everyone from both my wife’s and my family couldn’t stop talking about how great the music and the DJ was, and how they danced the night away at my wedding. He is in no small part responsible for my wedding staying on track, and I can’t thank him enough for that! Would 100% hire him again for any event I have in the future.

Jerry was great to work with! I called him after issues with a previous DJ and even though he had a late night event the evening before our wedding, he showed up on time and provided music for our special day. He was very professional, kind, & responded so quickly to messages & calls. I appreciated him being there for our day. Thank you, Jerry!

Tommy was fantastic from the very beginning! He answered all of my questions I had and was always very quick to respond. I didn't even need to look any further after talking with him! On the day of the wedding he showed up 2 and a half hours early just to make sure everything was perfect! Our dance floor was never empty and everyone talked about how awesome he was! He played all the songs we requested. we even had a slight issue with our officiant that didn't get up to say the prayer for our food and Tommy jumped right in and I'm not even sure to many people noticed because of how quick he responded to the situation. If you are looking for a great DJ I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

There truly are no words to describe how pleased we were with Mr. Chambers and the services he provided. We had our wedding at Ashton Gardens in Corinth, Tx which is about 5 hours from where we live so the stress level is a little higher when making sure everything is together and ready to go. Tommy was extremely professional and punctual on every account along with being very personable. We weren't able to meet with Tommy prior to the wedding rehearsal but with a couple of phone calls and emails, he had everything spot on from start to finish. Tommy definitely helped bring the stress level down quite a bit with his ability to read us and everyone at the wedding with solid planning and a very classy and fun music selection. Tommy is definitely above and beyond! Anyone looking for a DJ for any type of even should definitely book Tommy, he will provide an experience that is hands down the best you can get. We will be requesting his services in the future if we are in the area!
