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.

DJ Mercer was quite seriously perfect at our wedding. He both DJ’d and MC’d our wedding, and did a phenomenal job with both. He’s clearly experienced, and has equipment that DJs 3x as expensive wouldn’t have. He’s flexible, professional and made it all work. I could not recommend a DJ any more than DJ Mercer., Wedding Entertainer,, Wedding Entertainer,

DJ Suave is an awiesome DJ! He is responsive during the entire wedding planning process, met up with us several times to talk about logistics, and did an awesome job during the wedding. Our guests loved his music choices and he really got the party going. If you need to hire a wedding DJ look no further and hire DJ suave!

We LOVED DJ Colton. He was super lovely to work with throughout our wedding planning process - very laid back. He did everything he said he would do and went above and beyond on things like lighting. I loved that the business didn’t nickel and dime us - like other DJs we interviewed. If I had another DJ need, I’d hire these guys again in a heartbeat. Also the music was dope! Loved that he was a club DJ and not just cheesy wedding DJ.

DJ Colton was really great! They showed up to our event right on time and setup their equipment quickly, which was super important since we had a quick room flip window. Their equipment is nice, looked very professional, and they even brought their own DJ lights at my request. Everyone enjoyed the music and had a great time. I definitely plan on using DJ Mike and DJ Colton for our event again next year!

Barak was terrific. Guests commented on his professionalism. His wife Geraldine provided great assistance to us and they work well as a team. Hire him to dj your event. DJ Suave will make it awesome.

We hired DJ Colton for our high school winter formal and it was a great experience. Mike handled all the paper work and gave us a link where we could request songs we wanted. Colton was awesome and his sound and lights are the best our school ever had. He played songs that everybody loved. He also mixed like a real DJ not just playing songs one after another. We plan to book DJ Colton for our prom and future dances. Thank's DJ Colton!

I hired DJ Zeta to DJ and MC my wedding in 9/17. Prior to the event, we communicated frequently on music and planned around the rainy weather. He was responsive and courteous, I would not hesitate to work with him again!

We hired DJ Mike for our wedding and couldn't have been more happy with our decision! It was awesome that DJ Mike chose songs based on meeting with us just one time. We were supposed to give him more information about the kinds of songs we wanted but didn't (sorry about that by the way Mike!) and even without that he was able to keep our friends and family singing and dancing the night away! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ to set the tone for our special day! Thank you DJ Mike!!!

We hired DJ Sheila E for our wedding reception and she was truly phenomenal!! Our hope was that the dance floor would be busy the whole night with people having fun, and DJ Sheila E made that happen! She created EXACTLY the right vibe and kept everyone wanting to dance. We had people coming up to us throughout the whole evening saying how much fun they were having - that they were loving dancing & the music & asking about our amazing DJ. Even people more hesitant about dancing got grooving. If we need a DJ again, we’ll be reaching out to DJ Sheila E - no question! A couple other things to mention: -DJ Sheila E made announcements to keep the evening flowing perfectly! -We had a very specific request for our first dance: we wanted a version of a song as cut together in a scene from a movie (spoiler: pulp fiction dance scene) & all we had to do was send DJ Sheila E the YouTube video of that clip & she made sure to use exactly the right portions of the song from the movie. Her attention to detail before & after our wedding made all the difference for a perfect evening. -The way DJ Sheila E masterfully transitions from song to song is truly an art form; she read the group perfectly and anticipated the type of songs people wanted to hear before they would have known it themselves! I’ll stop gushing now, but bottom line, book DJ Sheila E to have the best DJ ever!!

Alex is very responsive and professional. Unfortunately DJ who did the job (who wasn't Alex) missed the mark in delivering the playlist provided. Guests had fun so wasn't a disaster but disappointed that didn't get the music or DJ commentary requested.

DJ Sean was the perfect DJ for our event. My wife wanted an epic dance party for her birthday and that is exactly what Sean delivered! From the cocktail hour tunes while people were mingling to the hits that got everyone on the floor...great night with great tunes from beginning to end! He listened to exactly what we wanted and delivered...working with us the whole way. Can't recommend DJ Sean enough!!

Stephen was on the priced on the higher end of the spectrum of DJ's, but you definitely got what you paid for with him. He was worth every penny! Charismatic, charming, prompt, entertaining, patient... all the things you want in a DJ, Stephen was it. Would absolutely hire him again.

DJ Mike is wonderful! We had a corporate reception at the Living Computer Museum and decided just a couple of weeks before the event to hire a DJ. Mike was highly rated and he immediately responded to my inquiry and promptly followed up. He answered all my questions and ensured that he knew exactly what I was expecting from the event. He did a site visit with the facility and was set-up and ready to go early! Song choices were great and it eased my mind to have him DJ the event. I would definitely recommend him and I look forward to having him DJ future events.

Brian did an amazing job DJ-ing our wedding, I was so sad when it was time to shut off the music because I'm sure he could have had the crowd going the whole night. Best DJ I've heard at any wedding by far!

I am so excited to have DJ Sheila as my DJ for my wedding in my! She was very quick to respond and sent an Excel with detailed information for what songs I wanted at what times and a list of "do not play" which is always a must. I look forward to working with her more!
