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.

What can said about DJ Kayenne but without a doubt the BEST DJ in Houston PERIOD! I hired DJ Kayenne to DJ a corporate event (Fashion Show) with only 48 hour notice. The corporation is conducting a nation-wide tour that includes the unveiling of a new line of products and our 1st stop was Houston. Upon my arrival to Houston (Flew in from out of town) DJ Kayenne was available to meet with me and the show’s coordinator the night before to review the logistics of our event. DJ Kayenne had all the music we needed and then some. During our Fashion Show DJ Kayenne’s music kept our guest and models engaged and entertained. Afterwards we held a cocktail party where DJ Kayenne truly demonstrated is musical genius by playing a variety of classic and contemporary Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, Top 40. Corporate members and guest were raving and couldn’t stop talking about DJ Kayenne. Throughout my interactions with DJ Kayenne he is a true professional first and foremost. Anyone that knows fashion shows know how important the music is and without DJ Kayenne our event would have been a failure. THANK YOU DJ Kayenne for your services and anyone who needs a DJ don’t waste your time on anyone else but DJ KAYENNE!

I used 2-AG- Mobile DJ Service for my family reunion. He was very professional and the music was simply awesome. I must say that my family and I were very impressed with this DJ. His fee for service fit right into our budget. We will be using him again. B. R. Barnett

Mr. Walker did an excellent job DJ-ing at my daughter’s Sweet 16 party. His music selection and visual presentation helped make the event a huge success. Playing the videos of the music was definitely a crowd pleaser!!! I would recommend W.E. to anyone looking for a great time at their event. Terry Sowells

Leading up to the event this company was fine. I received prompt communication and professionalism was fine. The value was also good and comparable to other DJs. At the wedding, however, the DJ went to the wrong location (he went to Magnolia when my wedding was in Angleton, so not even close) and showed up during the reception and was not ready to begin playing music until dinner was half way through. He missed the ceremony, cocktail hour, first dance, and both father-daughter dances. Thankfully the venue had a plug and play system and one of my bridesmaids was able to pull up music on her phone while my sister worked the mic. I don't know what I would have done otherwise. I did get a partial refund as compensation and an apology for the error.
