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?

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?

Pay the DJ was absolutely one of the best DJs we have ever worked with. He came with all his equipment, even a table, and needed nothing from us. The parents-to-be are from 2 different cultural backgrounds so we provided him with a playlist and he executed and made sure everyone had a great time. He was even flexible and reasonable when we asked if he can stay extra, that's how good he was. He was really nice to everyone and it will definitely not be our last time working with him. Highly recommend for your party needs!

We highly recommend DJ French. His mixes were great, he had a great feel for the crowd, he was on time, he provided and he had a great attitude. Finally he made my husband’s 50th birthday memorable!

Joshua was the ultimate professional and did a fantastic job as the DJ of our daughter’s wedding. He was easy to work with, very responsive, and excellent at what he does. He not only provided flawless wedding ceremony music, but on top of that, he edited a special song for us to fit the time frame we needed, exactly to our specifications. He had great ideas to get the wedding guests involved at the reception, and allowed the bride and groom an easy and effective way to select the songs they did and did not want played during the reception. I would definitely recommend Loud and Clear for any event, and would choose this company again in a heartbeat the next time we need a DJ!!!

Barry was my Dj for my wedding. He did a fantastic job. He kept in contact with my family to get information on what everyone liked to listen to. Barry even allowed me to add a song a couple hours before the wedding for my junior bridesmaids to sing along to. He was the best thing out of my wedding and my guest enjoyed the music. There was a slight mix up on the Father's song but it all worked out great. Thanks again Barry.
