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.

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.

He was amazing at our wedding!! I even got him the list of requested songs the day before (which I still feel bad about) and was able to accommodate for everything! He’s a fantastic DJ and you can’t go wrong at all hiring him. I will absolutely recommend him to friends and family in the future along with anyone here looking for a DJ!

DJ Remix did a great job providing music for my pool party. Not only his music, but his great lighting took my party to a whole new level! We played a bit of communication tag at the beginning, but I would highly recommend him!

So impressed! He showed up early to set up his amazing lights/fog and equipment. Played great music and let us requests songs whenever we wanted. He also asked what I would prefer for him to wear to the party, which I felt went above and beyond. I will for sure be having him DJ again! Thank you!

We love Gold Standard. This was the second time we hired Rob Bennion and his terrific group to perform. Previously they entertained at our staff holiday party. Then we hired the February 25, 2017 as the featured band at our school's Mardi Gras gala. This was a major fundraising event, with a silent auction/social hour, dinner, live auction and dancing. Gold Standard is a class act. They are stellar musicians. Most notable, is their refreshing versatility. They opened our event with smooth ballads and light jazz - and featured great sounds on saxophone. Then they edged into more upbeat dance songs following dinner, with refreshing and soulful takes on covers everyone recognized. They closed our event with late night DJ services, spinning all the latest in dance club favorites. Our guests loved the music and Gold Standard understands how to read a crowd. They are professional, talented, and punctual, able to effortlessly assimilate into any event. I recommend them highly. ~Nevah
