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 much do DJs charge per hour?

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?

Rich was the DJ for our wedding and he was amazing to work with! He was open to any ideas we had, quick to respond to messages and helped with the flow of our wedding. We had a Sunday wedding, which can be pretty mellow, yet he kept our friends and family engaged and entertained. I would definitely recommend I DJ 4 U for any event. Thank you, Rich!

Richard did an awesome job! He set up quickly and had great suggestions. Everyone thought it was great that he made a point to thank the caterer for the amazing meal. I loved that he was even getting into the music! Best dj by far!

Stephon was a great DJ for my NYE Wedding! He is friendly and personable. He showed up early and was willing to stay through the whole night and more. His choice of music really matched the mood and he accepted all requests. He has his own equipment as well.

Dj Pete was wonderful! He was extremely communicative, and professional. He did a great job playing the music when it was needed during our ceremony and our reception. He was also very happy to accommodate requests that our guests made. I would definitely use him again for any future events.

Brandon was the perfect person to DJ our wedding. He was prompt to respond throughout the entire planning process and accommodating to all of the requests we had, including setting my husband up with his favorite karaoke song to sing at the reception. Both of our families always request him to sing this specific song when we’re out with them, so it really was a highlight at our event. Brandon is very professional and great at what he does. We would recommend him to anyone! :)

Rich helped to create an outstanding experience on the day of our wedding. He met with us in advance of our event to make sure that he knew the "musical vision" that we had in mind, provided useful guides and organizational tools, had suggestions and ideas, etc. On the day of, he worked with our wedding coordinator to ensure a seamless ceremony and reception, was a fantastic MC, and made sure that we had the awesome dance party that we had been hoping for. He is incredibly personable and kind, and we were so happy to have him in the mix on our wedding day. We couldn't have had a better experience, and would highly recommend Rich's DJ services!
