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.

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

How much do DJs charge per hour?

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.

Richard performed his job in a professional manner. He was great to work with and my daughter thanked me at the end of the party for finding such a "good DJ". High praise coming from a 16 year old girl. Thank you Richard. I would not hesitate to recommend I DJ 4 U.

Brian from Digital Hitz was absolutely amazing. From the introductions, to carrying on the party all night, Brian did it all. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ and have heard comment after comment following our wedding about how much people loved our DJ. Thank you Brian!!

Stephon was awesome! He was the DJ for my wedding a month and half ago and was incredibly professional and fun! My husband's family and my family have very different music styles; he was able to accommodate both and kept things lively and fun! I highly recommend Stephon!

We hired Rich to DJ our daughters wedding at the Lairmont Manor in Bellingham, WA. We could not possibly have made a better choice. He was PHENOMENAL! He had several meetings with us beforehand. Showed up the day of the event with plenty of time for set up, and also provided assistance to others that were busy getting ready for the guests to arrive. His music choice was perfect, and his personality on the microphone really made the evening. A million thanks to you Rich!!!

Absolutely amazing DJ! You will not regret using Ty and his staff! They were amazing and kept the crowd going and had amazing music! He created a spreadsheet with the ceremony and reception timeline for both parties to add or change details on which was very helpful during planning process. Was very open to having multiple meetings to go over every detail and was very calm and open to opinions and suggestions! His staff was amazing and his hype man was amazing as well! If you are debating on who to choose, definitely go with Ty and his team!
