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?

Dj Kutmaster was the best Dj we have ever used. He timed everything perfect and made the wedding perfect. He really had everyone enjoying themselves and dancing. A big storm was about to start towards the end of the reception and my wife asked him to play the last song and pack up an hour early. The Dj was more concerned about everyone at the wedding than he was about getting his equipment wet or possibly ruined. He had amazing customer service! We will definitely be using him for any and all future Dj needs!

First and foremost, Thank you DJ Rells for making our special day perfect! From beginning to end, DJ Rells had a quick response time. He kept in contact up until our wedding day. He showed up on time. He played all the songs as scheduled and as requested. DJ Rells is very knowledgeable with the genre of songs we wanted played. He was very professional and did a great job! We are beyond pleased and grateful!

I had a DJ cancel at the last minute due to a family emergency. I contacted Ving's DJ service the morning of the event. 4 hours later Ryan showed up and did a fantastic job. Many people at the event commented on how good he was and asked for his contact info. I highly recommend him and will use him for all future events!

Oscar was our DJ last Dec,12.2020 at The Refinery. We found him here at thumbtack. He was really responsive to our questions. We got married during pandemic and we all know how stressful it can be. We had a lot of changes with our program due to health and safety concerns but he listened carefully to every requests we have and was so patient with our changes. Our people are not really into dancing but he managed to get them on the dance floor on the wedding day! Our wedding program went smoothly and we would recommend him to anyone! He’s a good dj and mc! Thanks Oscar!

Greg was the DJ for our wedding and he did a fabulous job. The music selection was spot on for our diverse crowd. Without us saying anything he knew. He played the specific songs we wanted to hear too! He deserves more than 5 stars!

DJ O B I and his MC (Louise) were extremely helpful with keeping our wedding reception moving along. The music was exactly what we wanted. He arrived early and even played music while we were cleaning up. Very professional. I would recommend.

We hired Aaron to DJ at our wedding reception of over 150 people. He was very professional leading up to the wedding by meeting with us beforehand to make sure he incorporated everything we envisioned. He showed up very well dressed, he was in contact with my wedding planner to make sure everyone was on the same page and he did a wonderful job directing the entire reception. Music was great! I asked him to play some Spanish music and he definitely was able to bring everyone out on the dance floor. Everyone had a wonderful time. I highly recommend Aaron for anyone who is looking for a professional DJ. You can tell that he loves what he does and he will listen to your visions and make it happen!

I hired Teddy for my granddaughters Sweet 16 party. He did a great job and the kids really enjoyed the music. My granddaughter gave him a list of "her songs" she wanted played and Teddy did a great job making sure he had them to play. He is very professional and fun at the same time. I would hire Teddy again when I need a DJ. Thank you Teddy for making her night special.
