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.

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?

Top notch/a true pro. We enjoyed having DJ Men-Yo at my daughter's birthday party and will definitely use his services again if we ever need another DJ.

DJ Peppp was awsome for my husband surprise 50th birthday party! When I was looking for DJ's I asked each DJ for a demo of their music, DJ Peppp was the only one who sent me a demo. That to me said a lot about how he treats his business and his talent. When we first met to talk about the party, I knew he was the guy. He was easy and fun to talk to, I told him what I was wanting for the party and how I wanted it to go he listened agreed and had some suggestions. I felt like I didn't have to tell him again what I wanted. He kept the music going and the crowd moving. There was some songs he played that I didn't know but the crowd did and they loved it so therefore I loved it. That's was one thing I wanted for the DJ to be able to read the crowd and give them what they want. I would recommend him to everyone who wants a GREAT DJ for their event. Thanks againg DJ Peppp!

Greg was responsive to questions and very helpful. We were originally going to have DJ Reece as our DJ for our wedding. He was absolutely great, very flexible and easy to work with to help us have a seamless party. Unfortunately, he had to cancel 2 days before due to unforeseen circumstances out of his control. Reece and GGC immediately got us a replacement DJ, Jim, who stepped up and did a great job at our wedding. Which was especially difficult as it was a bicultural wedding. I would definitely recommend GGC Productions, and we will be coming back to them for any future parties we hold! Thank you Maurice and especially thank you Jim!!!

I can’t thank DJ Concept for showing up & showing out at my wedding he was AMAZING!!!! It’s like he just knew what to play to keep the party going. He showed up on time, he was VERY responsive(which is a big deal for me dealing with professionals) & most importantly he knew what he was doing!! You’re crazy if you don’t book him for your next event he is definitely the DJ you should trust!

Ken was great at my wedding. He was on time and kept the dance floor packed. He played every song I requested and played a great Playlist to match. Definitely will request him again if I need a DJ.

Elite DJ Squad. We needed a DJ for our party and found EDS. We worked with Patrick up until a week before our party and after we sent our music list. He decided to change on who would DJ from it being Patrick to Brian. Brian was professional and polite. We had to resend our song we were dancing to and a list of songs we wanted to be played at our event. We told Brian he didn't have to play everything from the list but to feel the crowd and play what he thought would bring the people on the dance floor. I wished he played the songs on the list we provided. He didn't have a wide variety of songs to play. He was trying to download songs at the event center. I was disappointed in how little of the types of songs we wanted to be played. I wasn't on the dance floor hardly at all and that is what I was looking forward to. I highly suggest everyone from the Elite DJ Squad download a wide variety of songs to be well prepared for your next event. Other than that, Brian was there early, he was curious and professional, just needs to build a bank of songs.

They are very professional and a very high quality DJ when it comes to mixing and transitions. I couldn’t recommend them more. They know how to judge a crowd and are the definition of a PEOPLE PERSON. Loved their work and will definitely be hiring them again.

DJ the Mood was the perfect choice for our wedding this past weekend. He was professional, open to crazy ideas, always answered emails, and laid back to what my husband and I wanted to play. He had our dance floor packed all night! Highly recommend!

Simply the best and extremely easy to work with. We hired Nolan for my daughter's 15th birthday/quinceanera. He is professional and he has a way to engage the crowd and make everyone have a great time dancing. He exceeded our expectations. Attendees were asking where I had found this DJ. I would highly recommend him.

Bruce was our wedding DJ. He traveled to Round Rock from Killeen just to meet at our venue months prior to our event. On our wedding day, he was set up and ready to party way before we were. He did an excellent job at our wedding adhering to our song list and recognizing our cues. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Bruce!! P.S. I loved that we were able to pay by credit card through PayPal.

We hired our DJ and photo booth from Essen Entertainment and both were superb...communication was A+ from the beginning, in fact the venue recommendation I was struggling with came from them! They arrived early at the venue and set up appropriately; they were very accommodating of our requests as well as entertained our guests very well. They kept me abreast of any hiccups along the way (including those not related to their services, but rather the venue) which I sincerely appreciated. If you want capable, professional, current entertainers for your wedding or party, definitely book these guys!
