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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

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 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.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

Hourly rates for DJs can vary depending on where you live, the event type (weddings, prom, birthdays, etc.) and many other factors. For an accurate hourly rate, request cost estimates from top-rated DJs near you.

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?

DJ KD was excellent! He is hands down the best DJ out there, very affordable, and quick to communicate. We needed kid appropriate music and he was able to accommodate our needs. People and kids we're dancing and having a great time. We will hire DJ KD again!

DJ French was amazing. He was incredibly flexible when we had to reschedule our event due to foul weather. He arrived well before the event start time and even started playing music to invite people to the party. His music choices were phenomenal, his execution was flawless, and his personality was inviting and entertaining. It's everything we could've wanted in a DJ, plus he's an awesome guy. If I ever need a DJ again, he will be the first one I call.

Hired Brian to DJ/Emcee my wife's 40th birthday party. I went big with the event, and needed a DJ that could keep folks dancing and having a great time. He did just that and more. He worked well with me on the plans, showed up very prepared, and was even flexible on-the-fly during the event! I'd highly recommend Brian, and will certainly look to him again myself!

DJ Jackovall did a fantastic job at our reception! Not only did he listen to and play the music we wanted, but he was quick on his feet and read the room to see what we wanted or needed at any moment. I never would have got up to karaoke in front of a crowd but with the encouragement from DJ Jackovall and his wife, I got up there and belted Disney music! Our reception would not have been the same without him and I would hire him for any and all events in the future!!

I enjoyed speaking with Dj Ronald Zee. He provided me with all the packages and was straight forward with everything. He also personally called to talk with me. I like when an organization or business do that. It shows me professionalism. I think anyone looking for one should sign up with him.

DJ Mark was an absolutely great DJ! He asked all the right questions before my wedding to get a vibe for my style, then the specific song choices for the main songs. He also contacted the venue himself to ask sound specific questions of them which really relieved any pressure on me to act as middle man. He really did an excellent job as a MC as well, announcing the bridal party, as well as the events throughout the wedding! His song choices were really excellent, and really kept the guests engaged when it came to dancing and enjoying themselves. The evening went so smoothly and was so enjoyable, in no small part due to Mark! He gets 7 out of 5 stars if that were possible! He totally is worth it!

DJ Bobby was awesome! He personalized my daughters birthday/graduation party without much direction from me. He read the crowd and the type of music they enjoyed the most and kept playing to their liking. He also surprised us with my daughters school of choice Alma mater which was a great personal touch after the happy birthday was sang. Thank you for a great night!

From the time I first contacted Tim about my son's wedding for a quote to the day I finally met him and his lovely wife...it was all of the best I could have asked for. They were super fast with responses, patient when we almost had to cancel for possible deployment, to choices in music. The music was awesome but what was super nice was Tim was on top of every cue for music throughout the whole day, he knew what and when and where and was super initiative and very engaging with everyone. I can't say enough great things about our choice in a DJ, super honest and genuine. Absolutely would use him again in a heartbeat. Thank you from the Austin party for helping complete our beautiful day.

He is great, didn't really know where to start for the wedding but I found multiple djs and they didn't write back in a timely manner or even answered or asked me any questions about my celebration, he was on time for everything answered everything, he is willing to travel if you let him know in advance great customer service glad I booked with him.... he is also able to answer any questions or concerns you have and he gets back the same day really making my process worth the while really really excited I found him and we are excited about booking him for our wedding definitely give him 5 stars and he is very much so recommended👍👍👍👍👍

It was hands down the worst DJing I've ever seen. I hired him for my wedding and I had done my best in answering him all question on how the Indian wedding would be. He brought two small wireless speakers and played songs from YouTube (with ads btw, skipping after 5 seconds).. Those small speakers had no sound and also stopped working in the middle of my event. He played music from his laptop, when than died he used his ipad and then his phone. If you care about your event, I would strongly strongly advise NOT to hire him. There are many other DJs out there who'd want to make your day special. And to top all this off, he was Not appologetic at all! THE WORST DJing I've ever seen because he plays music off YouTube (no mix of any sort). If anyone needs videos or pics of how bad it was let me know. I'd also share how hard I tried to explain him everything over 2 months about the event.
