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.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

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 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.

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?

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.

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!

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 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.

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!

DJ Zeta was amazing! I plan social events, and our previous DJ had recently not fulfilled our needs, so I was really nervous to hire someone I’d never worked with before. However, Zeta completely exceeded expectations. He was really great to work with, was accommodating of our specific song choices and style, energetic, and kept the guests on their feet dancing the whole night. Apart from that, he was very flexible with my schedule and understanding of my requirements. Overall, a great DJ, professional person, and I look forward to working with him in the future.

Excellent DJ! He was very responsive and worked with us to incorporate our favorite songs. When things changed a few minutes before the event, he was flexible and made changes without a hitch. He was prepared for the Cocktail hour, the ceremony, dinner, and dancing. He even wore a blue wig for the special dance performance! We would highly recommend DJ Dane!

Brandon was absolutely amazing as a DJ, a professional, and creative artist. He DJ’ed for my 30th birthday party, and all of my guests said they loved the DJ and the music. He was extremely easy to work with, showed up early to set up, and got the party started and going. I’m planning to have another party just so I can hire him again. He was absolutely the best.
