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?

We hired DJ Greg G last minute the DJ for our micro-wedding in Fredericksburg VA. He was able to professionally handle a two-room setup and played what we requested and other hits during the reception. I would recommend DJ to anyone.

We were celebrating my husband’s 60th birthday!! DJ Zo made sure to keep the party moving with a great playlist of songs from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and current. The guests loved the fact that they were able to request songs and DJ Zo was happy to play them. DJ arrived several hours early to make sure she was set up and ready for when the guests arrive. I was very happy with the service provided and highly recommend DJ Zo for all your DJ needs!!!!

DJ TreySwift was simply amazing!!! The party came alive with the music selection; he listened to what kind of playlist we wanted and delivered. I highly recommend him. He's a true PRO and did an excellent, magnificent, and superb job. Thanks to DJ Trey, my daughter had a memorable graduation party.

DJ Ponfetti was proactive, highly responsive, and not just on-time but early. It's amazing how rare it is to have a wedding vendor/contractor show up on time. In terms of music, DJ Ponfetti was very personable and tailored the music to our taste. She was also able to be flexible and adapt as circumstances changed, not an uncommon occurrence during a wedding. It was clear that she was committed to doing whatever she could to make the wedding a success.

We hired DJ DP3 to facilitate my Mom's 65th birthday party. From our initial conversation he was professional, accommodating and understanding of what we were looking for in a DJ. He arrived on time ans was all set up prior to the event, he even jumped in to help us with our last minute set up items we had and we greatly appreciated that. He played all my Mom's favorite songs and she literally danced from the time she arrived until the party end. I highly recommend him for any event that you may have and I will definitely be booking him again for my next event. I feel confident when I say he is one of the best DJs in the DMV area.

It’s difficult enough planning a party. But DJ ‘Zo made handling the music easy. She was very responsive and helpful throughout. Great music. Everyone had a blast. Thank you again!

I was the bride of a wedding that DJ 'Zo serviced. Let me just say that I was so blessed to have had DJ 'Zo. Not only was she extremely professional, she was also very friendly. Throughout the night, she checked in on me and my groom to make sure we were enjoying the music. We were able to personalize our music list and she played every song requested (even hard-to-find music). We are extremely satisfied with her service and highly recommend her for anyone planning a wedding or party.

HefBeats was amazing from beginning to end! Initially speaking with him about the event he was VERY professional, understanding the value of what my mothers 50th birthday meant. We were in constant contact with song suggestions etc. the day of the party he came early and got the party started & engaged with his music and the transitions in between songs. We enjoyed you thoroughly, thank you for coming in the clutch and being apart of this celebration. If you want a DJ who loves what he does, understands the importance of getting the party started & very professional & respectful book HefBeats! We have a DJ for all events now. J. Palmer

We had a BLAST at our end of the year party! Steve was great to work with, extremely personable and really worked with me to find the right vibe for our party. You could tell he really cared about making it an experience for everyone and not just about getting the job done. If you're looking for a qualified DJ, look no further! I'll definitely be hiring Steve for all my future events!

From start to finish, Jermaine and Kells were awesome to work with! From their flexibility with delivering multicultural music and various genres with under a week's notice, to their apparent respect for timeliness, JS Dunk Productions has proven to be true professionals in their field. They made my husbands birthday party exactly what I hoped it would be. Everyone had a wonderful time and loved the DJ and MC. I'll definitely be calling on them for future events.

One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring DJ Greg. I was at first skeptical because he was so affordable, and thought that there must be some catch. There is no catch- DJ Greg truly made our wedding an AMAZING experience and brought the party to life. We received tons of compliments the night of and day after about what a great party it was, and how much fun the dance floor was all night- all thanks to Greg!! There was no awkward moments, no time to pause and worry about people dancing, because Greg picked the perfect music that made everyone from our younger cousins to my grandparents happy. Greg is incredibly professional, very attentive to detail (he faded out on first dances exactly where we needed, etc.), and is able to go with the flow (we changed the plan to announce cutting the cake because the dance floor was too hype to stop, and he rolled with it just fine). I wish I could give Greg more than 5 stars because he truly deserves 1000. Thank you Greg and to everyone reading this- do yourself a favor and book this man!!
