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.

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.

I had the best experience possible with Barry Moore, aka DJBMo upon hiring him to DJ my daughters wedding. If you are looking for a DJ who will make you feel completely taken care of then DJBMo is the best choice. From top to bottom DJBMo made sure every detail was taken care of. I would totally hire this man again to DJ my next event. Thank you, Barry!

If I could give DJ Zamora a million stars/recommendations I would! He is by far the best DJ around! He coordinated with me, my family, kept things on schedule, and kept people on the dace floor! I am still getting calls and texts about how fun our reception was. He truly is the DJ you want he won’t let you down! BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES! 😊💕🤵🏻💍👰🏻🕊

My fiance and I selected DJ Marv Bass for our wedding early next year and I must say that from the start he dives right in. In our initial phone conversation, he explained his credentials and experience and gave me confidence that I made a wise choice. He seems to be totally engaged every step of the way and lets you know that this is a partnership. I have hired DJs in the past that just show up, but that is not my impression so far. I look forward to my wedding and DJ Marv's services and am confident that my wedding entertainment is in good hands. This is my second review of DJ Marv Bass. Our wedding was this past Saturday and as I suspected he was a true professional. He was prompt, very friendly and eased my wedding day jitters. He kept the flow going, and provided a variety of great music for my diverse guests. Everyone was impressed with him and I received many compliments on selecting him as a DJ. We all had a wonderful day and he made our wedding day all that much easier and memorable. I wish that I could give him 10 stars, I would definitely recommend him, and will hire him again for future events.

DJ Marv was incredible to work with! He spent time going over things before my wedding to make sure that things went smooth. He is a true professional who absolutely loves what he does, and it shows! He kept the dance floor full, and kept our guests happy! We had a blast at the reception and it was because of DJ Marv! His MC services are top notch, and I would absolutely use him again!

I hired this DJ for my daughter Quinceanero and paid a deposit, he didnt showed up, neither called. I had a hall full of people and this ruined my daughter event.

Hired DJ Mista P for a work holiday party and was very pleased! Great customer service, showed flexibility with our needs. We ordered the extra light package with uplights and static gobos. Very happy with this choice! The gobos added a personalized touch the decor. DJ Mista P set everything up, on time and without any direction. As a host doing 1000 things at a party, this was a huge help to me! He kept the guests on the dance floor all night. What more can you ask for?! Would definitely hire him again. Please do not hesitate to use this great professional at your next event!

DJ Alex was hired for my son's 13th B day celebration at our home Oct 24th, 2015. He was on time and did a great job. Would recommend for any type of celebration. He had lighting for set up and fog machine, which we did use for our event!!

Travis was wonderful. I had him come and DJ a resident and staff bbq for the 4th of july at the nursing home where I work. He was timely, and played all the right music, and we even had a birthday and Travis made him feel extra special. I will most definitely be booking him for future events

Dj Marv was amazing to work with! We had a death in the family a few weeks before the wedding and he was beyond helpful and even surprised us with additions on our wedding day that made the family feel even more special and loved. Every time we spoke with him about music he made it very easy to complete the process, answering all of our questions along the way. We received many compliments on the music and how he presented himself throughout the night. Will definitely recommend him to others!

DJ B Square and his wife Karol we’re absolutely fantastic!! Very accommodating with every request of ours and our guests. We didn’t have a wedding coordinator and so there were a number of last minute changes on the day of and they just rolled with the punches. Music, lighting, smoke, photo booth were all on point. Best words to describe them are professional, kind and very friendly. I did extensive research and trust when I say they offered the most value for your buck. And by all means do the photo booth. I was hesitant to get it at first but after it was all said and done it was one of the most memorable features we had at our wedding. The picture quality was great! We will have parties and other events in the future and will definitely continue to use their services. Thanks for everything!
