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.

Delta Dawn and cowboy are the best. Made my wedding go off without a hitch. They both went above and beyond my expectations for a Dj. Played all the music that we had asked for and stayed on the ball with everything. Couldn’t of asked for a better Dj to do our wedding!!!

Only thing I wish I had done different is take the time to put together my own mix of music. I would recommend that to anyone hiring a DJ.

Jim and his right hand man made our special day complete. I had certain request though out the whole day and they fulfilled them all. Best day ever. My guests also had complaints for the DJ. They did an excellent job. Great job, great price, great people. Thank you so much!

If I could pick all 5 highlights and include responsiveness and value also I would. J Rods Jams was awesome! Jared was great to work with, responded quickly with any questions I had and also found the unique song I wanted for our processional. He kept everyone at the wedding dancing and having a great time and played requests promptly. The wedding shoe game was fun for not only the groom and I but our guests also. If I needed a DJ for another event in the future I'd definitely go with J Rods Jams and also will be recommending him to others!

I hired Zachary for my Friday wedding in Milwaukee. I was left with disappointment, regret and stress. The price was right, he seemed confident and the reviews were good. I would not hire him again or recommend him. I gave him one star for the photo booth. My guests Enjoyed it, the props were fun, they gave print outs to the guests and gave me a book at the end of the night of all the photos. I did suggest to him they could benefit from a new/different back drop. The actual DJ'ing and playing music was a struggle. I asked him to play three songs for the ceremony. Two at the beginning, one at the end. He had 15-20 minutes to cue up the walk out song. I asked him to play the song during our first kiss. He played the song 40 seconds after our first kiss. We stood there, in silence waiting and waiting and looking at him wondering what the heck is going on. All of our guests looking at us, looking at him. Completely ruined what was supposed to be a very special celebratory moment for us. Made it painfully awkward and uncomfortable and set my stress level to a 10 only 1 minute after I just got married. I can't even comprehend why he didn't have that song cued and ready to press play. There is no excuse. Cocktail hour music was quiet and far away from my guests. I had to ask him if my guests can hear the music. He replied "I don't know." So I had to say, "well, can you please make sure they can." Dinner music, I asked him to play 60's music. He did, some of the time, there was also moments of no music and moments of current country music...? How did he not have a dinner playlist ready to go? I can't understand. Reception music. My dance floor was empty often because songs that no one knew or cared for were being playing. I specifically said, read the crowd, play to the crowd, keep the dance floor full. And instead of fading out and switching songs after no one likes what he's playing, he let the entire song play. To most people, small details. To the person who put so much time, energy and money into one day, it matters. I am so disappointed. I would not hire him. I would have spent more money on a more competent DJ.
