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.

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

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?

Dj Vai was AWESOME! I couldn’t have asked for a better dj to do my event! I did a 25th birthday party at a skate rink, and dj vai made it the time of mine and all my friends lives! He played great music, went along with my playlist, and also mixed in his own! He is truly a dj artist! He was so sweet, and was very punctual, responsive, and has prices you cannot beat! My plans got changed a couple times, and he was so flexible and understanding. I’ll be using him for all of my events in the future! I can’t thank him enough for making my birthday party the best one ever! Thank you again dj vai! You’re the best!

Like I said, Vai saved our wedding! Our DJ bailed on us! But Vai was so accommodating! I’ve seen many DJs but Vai is the most skilled that I’ve ever seen and really makes your day special. All our guests loved him!

Vai was phenomenal! Made my Bat Mitzvah party a HUGE success. The music was flawless and the dance floor was packed until the last call! Vai knows how to read the crowd and represents the best in the trade of party dj. Everyone in the party said “The DJ was AWESOME!” Highly recommend!!!

Kev was such a personable and friendly DJ at our wedding. He arrived on time to our venue and played all the songs we requested! He was also so easy to talk to and was great at announcing the special events. We recommend him to anyone that’s looking for a reliable and fun DJ! We would be happy to work with him again :)

Unfortunately, Doug did not meet our expectations as our wedding reception DJ. He did not play music in between sections—we were often asking why the music wasn’t playing... there were several songs we requested that weren’t played. His announcements were muffled and unclear. Our wedding was fantastic, but the DJ was disappointing.

DJ Don was the absolute best pick we could have made for the Wasatch Mountain Club's centennial birthday party. He was very interested in hearing my expectations before the event, took time to plan for it, and quickly got the party goers up and dancing without me bribing anyone! It was wonderful to see people thoroughly enjoying the music. Thank you Don. You will be my only go-to DJ. Heidi DeMartis

We had DJ do an event for the University of Utah Surgical Intensive care and Cardiovascular Intensive Care units and he did an amazing job. We had a large venue at the Grand Hall and we were concerned the music would not be loud enough. DJ Remix handled everything from the lighting, the speakers, and even Karaoke. Everyone had a great time and the music and everything was amazing. We will definitely be using him again in the future!

Wow! Vai was amazing at my daughter's wedding last night at Bellissimo Gardens in Holladay! We found Vai on Thumbtack and interviewed a couple other DJ's to see how compatible they would be to what the couple wanted. Dj Vai was the most positive, outgoing, knowledgeable, HUMBLE, and excited DJ we met with. He has an amazing APP he works with so you can download your music ideas throughout your engagement, for him to play on your wedding. He'll meet with you a few days before and solidify all your needs! Vai showed up at the rehearsal and met with the coordinator and grounds person to know where to hook up and put his equipment on the day of the wedding. He worked with the videographer and venue staff to MC an amazing wedding. On the wedding day, he was there on time and knew exactly how to do what was needed. He was so engaging and confident with the crowd and really got everyone moving. This was a partying crowd and he kept the dancing going the entire evening. He even played the exact music the couple wanted. The music flowed seamlessly and every song was perfect for the crowd, including songs for the older crowd of parents. My feet are still sore from dancing all night and I am 60! He provided up lighting which was perfect for this outdoor venue. He provided cold sparkler lighting that just took things up a notch during the first dance. And of course, he had their names in lights on the dance floor which added to the vibe. My daughter and her new husband can't say enough wonderful things about the music and DJ Vai. Thank you DJ Vai for helping our family and friends celebrate the marriage of my daughter to her new husband. If we have DJ needs again, we will call you!
