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?

Didn't get to work with DJ Tako due to the cancellation of the venue which was beyond my control. Venue cancelled us due to lack of employees. Lost my $150 deposit with DJ Tako but I did find another DJ who only required $50 deposit and remaining of the balance due upon arrival which is more reasonable.

This was my first time ever hiring a DJ for any sort of event, and it happens to have been for my wedding. He did a fantastic job the whole way through. DJ enCore was through in making sure he had everything he needed and even told us some options we didn't know we had. 100% would hire again and recommend that anyone needing a great DJ to give this guy a call! Thanks for your hard work!

I found JJ on thumbtack to be my DJ for my wedding and I could not have asked for better! JJ was quick with responses, offered ideas and feedback and was the first person to do a rundown of the day of. He went out of his way to provide an itinerary which came in very handy with organizing with the other vendors. He played a huge part in making everything run smoothly! We recieved so many compliments from our family on our DJ. You really can't get much better than him :)

Thank you so much for being there for our special day! He played the best music and my family and friends thought he did an excellent job. I highly recommend him for an event. The music was perfect, timing for each song was great, and everything was amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better DJ.

Absolute best DJ ever!! We had some hiccups during our wedding (on our end,) and Rob was able to adapt and overcome. Nobody even noticed! He kept everyone dancing, and seemed to choose the perfect songs. I really can’t say enough good things about Robert. Hire him, you WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!

DJ Phil Does It is hands down awesome. He performed for our wedding & we would not have gone with anyone else. He correlated with my Bride/Wife and myself. Also worked well with the drag queen we hired. We would hire him again for all future events in the area or pay a travel fee for him to come outside his main performance area. Love is Love.

I could brag about Cory for hours! He truly made our wedding day magical. From the start, he was so responsive and accommodating to all of our needs. We put together a themed playlist for our day - everything from country, to Frank Sinatra, and of course Harry Potter music throughout our dinner, and he achieved it all and more. He was able to move his equipment around from outside to inside because of the way our venue was set up, and that was so helpful. My brother even brought his guitar to play and sing, and DJ enCore immediately made sure he had everything to do so. We didn't have to worry about a thing with him as our DJ. Everything was taken care of and everyone had a great time dancing. Thank you a million times over for completing our wedding day and making sure everything went smoothly. I recommend anyone needing music services to go with him! THANK YOU! - Shaina & Alex

We hired Rick for our outdoor wedding and indoor reception. He arrived with plenty of time to setup. We gave him a timeline with our song lists and he provided us with everything we asked for. He was able to get everyone involved during the reception and played a great mix of music for everyone. I couldn’t be happier with our experience with Rick and would be more than happy to recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ with a great attitude. Thanks Rick

I had the pleasure of having Cory DJ my wedding reception on 10/25/20. He was very professional and always made time to answer questions in the months leading up to the big day. When the time came for the reception, he delivered huge! We ran into a timing issue, but had a back up plan that Cory took care of for us. He was heavily invested in making our event great, and made it happen. It would not have been successful without him as the music we chose for certain parts of the reception were very important to us. Cory was terrific! A++ experience! Jesse & Roxy

When I initially met with the DJ, he told me that he understood how important the day was and that the day was supposed to be about my husband and I. Per his request, we met three weeks before the wedding so I could give him a list of all the music we wanted to hear about the wedding and he told me that he would have a playlist put together, ready for the day. On the day of the wedding, he played a lot music that wasn't on my list. He played songs all the way through, with the exception of the father-daughter dance, which was really disappointing to have that particular song cut short. His decision to play songs all the way through, with gaps in between each song, left me thinking that I should have just had a friend attach an iPod and created my own playlist. He spent a good portion of the night on the dance floor with the guests, soliticting his business, and called me by the wrong name all night long. My husband and I had a rather long engagement so we were really looking forward to the wedding and celebration, but I was not happy with his services at all and I ended up leaving earlier because I was so upset.

James did a wonderful job DJing and MCing our wedding. He was timely, polite, professional, and very thorough. We first met James at the venue a few months before the big day. During that time we walked through the schedule for the day. James had many thoughtful questions about his setup and even some questions that we hadn't even considered. The week before the wedding. James and I met to go over the day of schedule and to review our music choices. Despite our song choices being very complicated, James was able to keep everything organized. I had the piece of mind knowing that the music was all taken care of. The day of the wedding, James arrived right when he said he would and had everything set up before the ceremony. His wife was there to help him throughout the day and she was also very polite. He played all of the songs we requested and avoided all of the songs we didn't want played. He got all of our wedding party names correct during the big entrance. There was one mix up in that he did not have the mother son song we had requested, but was able to alert me in time to change it to something else I knew my mom and I would like. Overall I would recommend James to any couple getting hitched in need of a DJ!
