Your DJ questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much does a DJ cost?

DJ prices are $300 to $800 on average for birthday parties, corporate events, bar/bat mitzvahs, and other private parties. Wedding DJ prices are $500 to $4,500. The average cost to hire a DJ depends on the event type and length, your location, the DJ's experience, and the package and add-on services you select. Average DJ prices for various event types are:

  • Wedding: $500 to $4,500
  • Birthday / anniversary party: $250 to $1,000

DJs charge $75 to $200 per hour for most parties and corporate events and $150 to $300+ per hour for weddings. Prices for bar mitzvahs and quinceañeras can often be as high as or higher than their wedding prices because these parties often include extra services like giveaways, MC services, a photo booth, and more.

How much should you tip a DJ?

The standard tip for a DJ ranges from 15% to 20% of their total fee, depending on the even type, duration, and complexity, and the services provided. Consider tipping on the higher end of the range if the DJ kept the party alive, engaged the crowd, and ensured the event ran smoothly and on schedule.

In additional to tipping, express your gratitude by posting positive reviews online, referring the DJ to friends and family, and sharing their info on social media.

Citrus Heights, CA 91 friends 25 reviews 5.0 star rating 6/4/2018 In a stressful time such as your wedding, DJ Kris really was a pleasure to work with. We didn't have time to build a playlist but he took care of it with some small tips from us. Event went great, I have nothing bad to say about him. The music was good, the lights were a plus, and he was very accommodating. Thanks DJ Kris!

Nov 16th 2019: If anyone is looking for a totally professional DJ that goes above and beyond for making your event spectacular, then DJ Matt is for you. He literally saved our wedding event from a last minute catastrophe. His mood lighting was totally unexpected by me but just set the stage for the memorable night that I will never ever forget. He kept the celebration going at all times. This guy knows his stuff about professionalism. I highly, highly recommend him......the best DJ I have ever seen in action. On a scale of 1 to 10 he’s a 100! Rock on Matt.....You’re the best!!!!!!!! Thank you. Marsha. Mother of the Groom

I would recommend DJ7 for any event and would certainly him them again. He did a great job pre-wedding and the day-of. Sean showed up on time, was very responsive and helpful, and most importantly, was flexible with the timing of the wedding. He also worked with us playing the music for the ceremony and not just playing the reception afterwards. I loved that he had the wedding timeline and that we were able to create our playlist before the event. We scheduled an interview before we hired Sean, he was on time and instantly made us feel comfortable and confident that he was the right person for the job. We gave Sean our picks for types of music and some of the songs we wanted to hear but asked him to pick most of the songs. This turned out great, he asked lots of questions about our taste and songs we liked and then followed our taste and requests and added his own picks to fill in. He was also open to taking requests from the dance floor, which made my young niece's night when she got to make her request to the DJ. I would highly recommend DJ7 to anyone who is planning a big event. He was on time, he handled the set up and take down on his own, not needing any additional help from us, our friends, or anyone around, and he put on a great show.
