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. 

Get cost estimates from the best DJs near you to find out how much you should expect to spend for your event.

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.

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.

Michael was a absolute fantastic dj for my wedding. He was very approachable organized and kept everything running smoothly. There was never a break in music and is very willing to make any event worth while. He also was great with impromptu changes during. Highly recommend and if any further event requires a dj I will seek his availability again.

If you do not use Jon as your DJ, you chose unwisely. This is one of the best DJ I have encountered, he really made our wedding day absolutely magical. Not only at the ceremony but for reception. He definitely lived up to his name (Double J Entertainment) the entertainment he provided at the reception with his quick witted jokes and his sound system and equipment together made our day awesome!! Again, if you do not chose him you made a huge mistake!

From the moment he got there his energy and professionalism was outstanding. He has a fantastic DJ Voice and dressed the part. He was very early which was perfect because our cocktail hour for rained out so we had to bring everyone in the reception early. He listened to what we wanted when I met with him to discuss the wedding. It was great he was very prepared and you can not go wrong!! If we have another event and need a DJ He is the first person we will call. I can not recommend him enougj!!

I was hesitant in hiring DJ 'Zo for my daughters birthday party only because I had never hired someone that I found from the internet before. Because of her professional, yet fun, and understanding demeanor I was able to express that to her without her being at all defensive. I am happy beyond belief that I followed my instinct and hired her. From the beginning she communicated in a timely manor, without her I am positive that my daughters party would not have turned out as fun as it did. The girls had a blast, thanks to DJ ZO!

Jon James was a great dj at our wedding. Extremely professional, he helped us make decisions, gave suggestions and even chose great songs for the parts of the wedding we overlooked. He had all the songs we requested in advance and was open for the guests requests at the party. The dance floor was a success! I highly recommend Double J Entertainment for any special event!

John and Sheila with It's A Sing Thing were OUTSTANDING!!! The best DJ & Karaoke I have ever experienced and I had no problem getting a package that worked for my needs and was also very affordable. They will be the only DJ that I will hire in the future. Our party was in Winchester, VA. They didn't mind traveling the hour to get to us, They arrived ahead with plenty of time to get set up and started playing music a little before schedule. The guest at our daughters 21st birthday party ranged from 13 -70 and every single person heard music that the liked. Within the first 30 minutes of our party I had at least 5 of our guest come up and say how great the selection of music was. People were up dancing and singing the entire party. I can't wait to work with It's A Sing Thing for my husbands 50th birthday!!! THANK YOU John and Sheila. You're definitely the BEST!!!

Dr. Chi was everything I was expecting and more. He was quick to respond to any and ALL my questions, he was totally professional in all aspects of the planning and event. He was punctual, the quality of his work was exceptional. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. I gave him a list of expectations, and he not only met them he exceeded them! If you want your wedding or event to be all about fun and dancing, this is your DJ.

I 100% recommend working with HefBeats to provide DJ services for your event. Planning my own wedding was a bit hectic, and he made the process all that easier by sending me draft playlists and helping me pinpoint what music I may need for the night as my event was soon approaching. He was was very prompt and thorough in his communications and provided services at an extremely reasonable price. He arrived at the venue well in advance of the event to setup with all of his own gear and I have him to thank for playing all the right tunes that got our guests out of their seats and onto the dance floor.

Amy was very professional during the entire experience. She was very attentive to our wants and needs both before and during our wedding event. Amy played appropriate music during the event and was very aware of everything going on around her to make sure the right music was playing at the right times. She also made very good suggestions during the event that helped us out tremendously and also kept everyone on the dance floor. We would definitely hire Amy again for our DJ needs. She had a smile on her face the entire wedding event and we were very pleasant to work with!

I got married 5.22.21 at Fox Meadow Barn. Oscar was a fantastic DJ and overall great to work with!! He really made the flow of the wedding great with smooth transitions and kept the party going! He was super professional and helped a lot when I asked for his experienced suggestions leading up to the wedding. He handled some on the spot requests and changes in the day of schedule without making me have to worry about anything! I had so much going on with everything else, it was so nice knowing Oscar had everything on his end taken care of! Thank you so much Oscar!! Would highly recommend his services!!

DJ Greg was one of my favorite vendors during the wedding planning process and during the day of our wedding! He was so professional, he had/has a great sense of humor, and he really makes a bride feel like all of her hard work has paid off with the planning. Greg is extremely thoughtful in-regards to pricing and it is so refreshing to know that there are honest people out there, like him, who don't want to rip people off with outrageous costs. Greg is also mindful of all types of guests present, especially young children and the elderly. He makes it a point only to play edited songs and I admired this immediately. He is wonderful at reading a crowd while dance time is in full swing, he was punctual, and his timing with the order of events for the day was perfect. Thank you Greg for your availability, your thoughtfulness, and your professionalism - you were worth every penny, and thanks to you, there weren't many! <3
