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.

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?

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. 

Reviews for Richardson djs
Mark Aldridge (DJ Europa) was excellent to work with. Always a smile on his face and did not mind that once in awhile we would pause his music for us to do our door prizes. A great DJ that took our requests (at the last minute) and made our Holiday Party a huge success. I received numerous compliments on his talents. Thank you DJ Europa. We will get with you again next year!

My experience with dj Drew was amazing. Though I live in New Jersey and was having the reception in Dallas he was always available to make sure everything would go smoothly. He was at the venue on time and played all the songs we requested. His prices are very fair and reasonable. I highly recommen him for your next event!

We found DJ T. French to be professional, courteous, and most of all, FUN. He played a variety of music that appealed to both the mature and young listener. He used a very small area for his equipment, was set up quickly, and exercised great volume control. He even offered to help clean after the party!! He will DEFINITELY be our first choice for future events.

Randy did an absolutely amazing job DJing at my parent's 50th Anniversary Party. It was a small party (50 people of all ages) and it was important to me to have a DJ who listened to the kind of vibe we were going for and Randy nailed it. He is professional, polite and communicative. He really created a perfect blend of songs for us and we had a great time. If I have another event in Dallas I will totally book Wow Factor again and recommend them highly.

WOW Entertainment was great! Randy was instrumental in helping us get the party started as well as helping us solve several issues we had regarding a video we wanted to show. He is very knowledgeable. He played exactly the type of music we wanted and was professional and easy to work with. Using Wow Entertainment was the best decision I made and I'm so glad I chose him. A DJ can either make or break a party and he definitely MADE our party!
