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.

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.

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.

On behalf of Rogers high school, we were very satisfied with NW Premier Audio. We needed a DJ 3 days in advance because our other DJ canceled, which I'm glad they did because NW premier Audio was such a satisfying choice.

We really were so glad to find DJ the Product. We decided to go with a DJ a week before our small ceremony! And he was quickly able to help us, very responsive, and worked with us on the program. On the actual day he exceeded our expectations and really contributed to making the day memorable!! Thank you Keith!

Stephon was hired as a wedding DJ and was there all day. Stephon was there early to make sure he made the correct ferry on time and to set everything up. He checked in to have a proper time line of events. He had fun while working which didn't make it seem like working. He interacted with everyone and even showed us a couple dances. He was always smiling and asked for any requests. Everyone was commenting on what a great DJ he was. Great experience!!!

We hired Barak for xmas party we hosted for apprx 125 guests. It was a Friday night and he showed up early to set up. He was concerned about traffic, so he was even earlier. He was very professional, had high tech equipment, and geared the music to our requests. Great variety, lights, etc. We received lots of compliments from our guests the night of event and since. Highly recommend DJ Suave! Thanks Barak

We hired WFX entertainment for our daughter wedding reception. George was PERFECT! I can't wait to recommend him to others. He was so helpful thru this process. He played every song we asked for. He even Mic'ed up the officiant ( for the ceremony). George was enthusiastic and fun. The crowd loved him. Non stop dancing. He was very prompt and professional and thoughtful. Stop looking at other DJs, George is your guy! He is the best!!! A great Value too! Thank you!!

I couldn't have asked for a more amazing DJ and MC for our wedding. Brittany is truly talented and quite possibly the sweetest person! I love that her husband is her best teammate that helped out so much! She came up with the best mixes and so many of our guests said we had the best music. I cannot thank her enough for coordinating the whole night and making everything run so smoothly. She was the key to making our wedding a success. THANK YOU BRITTANY!!!!!!!!!! Now I just want to throw a party and hire you again :)

Well....what can I say, BG2 Entertainment Co.and Travis Hartfield is great! Travis was my DJ, he was very social & easy for everyone to get along with. He made zero complaints about the requests I made and he himself had very little requests or requirements for anything needed in setting up his very nice operation which he set up very neatly, considering the small space he had to work within. The lighting he supplied just took my parties ambiance over the top! And I kid you not, people danced all night thanks to Travis, the music was soooo good, it had me and a lot of my guests on the dance floor (Travis, how many times did I fall down in those heels, lol!?) Seriously tho' the party was a blast and I was getting "kudos" about it the next day. If needed I would definitely look up BG2 Entertainment and Travis H. again. Great job thumbtack!

DJ Dane is the best! I was a little hesitant about hiring someone for our wedding that I had never met (& from an app). He far surpassed my expectations. He was my favorite vendor to work with. Before the wedding, he responded to any questions I had quickly and went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable. By the time of the wedding I was so excited to meet him. He helped whenever was necessary. He brought wireless mics for the ceremony and lights for the dancing - all included in the price. He also ended up being our MC -ushering people to cocktail hour/dinner/toasts/etc, and he was amazing. (We've all been to a wedding where the MC just likes to hear his own voice. Dane had the perfect amount of enthusiasm and restraint) He had to move his setup during the event, and did it flawlessly, while still keeping the party going. After the wedding, my husband said he was one of the kindest people he had ever met. And I couldn't agree more; he was so genuine. But more, importantly, he is so talented. He got the party going and kept it going until we got kicked out of our venue. :) EVERYONE loved him. I got so many compliments. I genuinely can't think of any way he could have been better. If you're considering hiring him, just do it. I'm already trying to think of ways can have another party so we can hang out with Dane again. 100% would recommend.
