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.

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

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 hired Jerry for our wedding based on the reviews and pricing. All I can say is that he is a great dj! Communication was spot on from the get go, quality setup/equipment, and very friendly. He knows how to read the crowd and adjusted the playlist accordingly while keeping the genre specific to our desires. I will hire Jerry again for any dj needs and strongly recommend him for anyone needing a dj. Thank you so much Jerry!

Awesome DJ at a great price. Did everything we asked for and more. Him and his wife are a GREAT team. Fast communication, showed up on time. Tracked down every strange song we looked wanted. Would definitely recommend to anyone in search of a DJ. Could not have been better

Steve and Cindy made my wedding. They helped create a fun atmosphere that everyone enjoyed. I'm not sure our wedding would have been as much fun if we had any other DJ. If you are ever looking for a DJ, Steve and Cindy are the ones to pick! I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

DJ French provided services at my son’s high school graduation party. The guests’ age ranges were wide, but DJ French effectively played music that suited everyone’s taste. He was punctual, professional and very charismatic. He engaged the crowd, used top notch equipment and served as MC (when needed). He knows exactly what to do to get your guests moving and mingling. The party was May 26, 2018 and my guests continue to comment on how great a job he did. I’ve had the unfortunate experience of encountering many poor quality or mediocre DJs in the DFW area, so I can honestly say that he is one of the best in this market. We will definitely use him exclusively for future events. We will also consistently recommend him to our friends. If you’re looking for an awesome, well-rounded, flexible, professional, universal DJ, then DJ French is your guy. Trust me, you’ll have no regrets if you hire him.

DJ Amigo was awesome!! The moment I posted on Thumbtack he responded. He worked so hard to find out just what my kids wanted (and they had quite a list) for their wedding reception. He even went to the venue ahead of time so he would know exactly what he needed to bring. He has such a fun, light hearted personality!!! I can't thank him enough for making their party everything they wanted. You can not go wrong hiring DJ Amigo. I will definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a DJ!!

PICK THESE 2 FOR YOUR EVENT!! I can’t even form words that describe how much fun we had with Madleys Mobile DJ. They went above and beyond our expectations and our guests loved them. I had never hired a DJ before so I had no idea what to expect but their timing for our wedding was impeccable as well their wedding song choices. If we ever need another DJ we won’t hesitate to hire them again. You guys will forever hold a spot in our hearts for how special you made our day.

This DJ saved the day by allowing a last minute booking after another DJ canceled on our event. Trey is organized, professional, easily approachable and on top of communication with his clientele. He and Erica turned my daughter's 13th birthday party into a night to remember! The setup and breakdown was flawless, all kids and parents were genuinely impressed and I will recommend him a thousand times over!

DJ Amigo Harris60 was awesome to work with. He worked with me too the T. He followed my itinerary & was able to feel the crowd out. His song selections were perfect. He kept great contact from the time I hired him, up until the big day. I now consider him a friend. I highly recommend him for any party needing a DJ.
