At some point, most weddings go from “fun and creative” to “annoying hard work.” Backthird takes the annoying off your plate so you can get back to the personal. A short call with someone you can trust gets you a plan with DJ, uplighting, live jazz or pop strings – all personalized to you. Then, focus on the songs and ideas YOU want - and watch us make them shine.
You need professional help.
Every Backthird DJ has been certified in four different areas: setup/sound, wedding production, music/mixing and speaking/coordination. You'll submit requests and plans online, then work directly with your DJ to firm up an agenda that actually works. We'll direct your party, keep your other vendors in the loop - and then blow up your dance floor, too.
Just add personality.
We know weddings, but only you know you - so customize according to your vision.

Backthird made our wedding day so amazing! From helping us make music selections to giving us the party we envisioned, their services were affordable and definitely worth the investment. Our DJ, Stephen, was full of energy and did a great job making our personal musical tastes a priority. He even went out of his way to test out a mashup of two of our songs as a surprise for my husband! For our cocktail hour we had a jazz duet featuring Louise Kelly on piano and a wonderful bass player (whose name I unfortunately have forgotten), and we received so many compliments on the way they added to the ambiance of the space (the original lobby of the Paramount Theatre in Aurora, IL). Thank you, Backthird, for giving two music nerds a perfect wedding day soundtrack!Sent on 07/22/2018

An easy choice!
We were not quite sure what we wanted in a DJ and musicians until we were introduced to Backthird. Scott was our DJ and he nailed what we were hoping for out of our reception! He played everything we wanted and took the night exactly where we wanted it to go. No one was ready for it to be over as the reception came to a close. We also had the pop trio at our ceremony and cocktail hour. It was so cool! We loved that we could mix our favorite songs with classics and it all felt so beautiful. We played the game of thrones theme song and taylor swift during cocktail hour and it felt so appropriate. The online tool makes working with Backthird a breeze. We put what we did and did not want, as well as genre ideas and they take it from there. Being able to book a DJ and live musicians together made it simple too. We highly recommend working with Backthird!Sent on 03/04/2019

Stephen from Backthird and his assistant helped DJ my wedding last week and they did an amazing job. Very easy guide to select and request songs to prep for our wedding. They communicated so much with us to make sure our day was perfect before the wedding.Sent on 10/08/2018
When the day came, fhey played every single one of our songs... we even requested a Metallica song... and they made it work at a wedding...EVERYONE left at my wedding was dancing to it. It was incredible. During the night they informed us before certain dances to be ready on the dance floor and prepared, they did this all night to make sure everything was perfect... everything WAS perfect.
For us our music for our wedding was very important, and they delivered the best service.
If I could give more stars I would. Im not sure how the other DJs are .. but Stephan was incredibly talented.
