Quality of Service

My husband and I went to Backthird Entertainment because they offered live music and a DJ, which I thought was going to be way too expensive, but it turned out to be within our budget! Twin Strings played for our ceremony and cocktail hour and it was amazing. Everyone commented on how the live music was such a nice touch and made for a wonderful atmosphere. Louise Kelly played piano throughout dinner and even played for our formal dances. Benjie at Backthird made sure that it all worked out so that I could get everything that I wanted. And I would highly suggest having your formal dances played live! I wanted Good Riddance by Green Day for my father/daughter dance and Louise Kelly said, "No problem!" It was such a beautiful rendition. Not a dry eye in the house! We used Derek Shipman for our DJ and he was so attentive to our wants the whole night and was very flexible with us. He kept our guests on the dance floor all night! I would highly recommend Backthird Entertainment to anyone looking for live music, a DJ, or both!!

DJs, jazz and strings. Happy made easy.

How do you make sure everyone has fun? How do you ensure your wedding feels classy and personal – never cheap or cheesy? How do you avoid the sense that when your DJ opens his mouth, someone’s going to ask, “Who IS this guy?”

The answer’s easy: Know your lead entertainers before the wedding day.

Backthird DJs are experts - and you are the boss. Meet your DJ before you sign anything. Then, set your wedding apart with live jazz or a pop strings ensemble that plays radio hits on classical instruments. Whatever your plan, you'll hire a person - not a package. Relationship is the key.
