Stephen kept the party going!
Backthird Entertainment exceeded my expectations. I reached out to them about a year and a half before my wedding. Stephen stayed in touch with me for that entire year and a half, checking in on the planning process and asking how he could help. He even met with me for coffee a few months before the wedding because he wanted to be sure that he understood our vision, music tastes, etc. The dance floor was full all night. So many people came up to me afterward and commented that they had never seen such a creative DJ - his transitions between songs were so fun, and he was flexible and knew how to keep the party going. He also provided all of the sound equipment for the entire day. We played a video during the reception, and even though he wasn't responsible for the equipment, he quickly jumped in when it looked like the sound wasn't working.Sent on 08/30/2019
Honestly, there is no reason to consider using any other DJ. Backthird is the best of the best!

Amazing all around
Backthird was easy to work with and flexible during the planning. They set everything up without a hitch. Most importantly everyone loved the music. There was a ton of dancing, some singing, and a lot of fun. Everyone was saying how much they loved the music.Sent on 07/14/2019

Best DJ Ever!
Backthird Entertainment did an amazing job with the music at our wedding. For the ceremony, we went with pop strings (violin, cello and guitar). Unfortunately our violinist was ill the day of the wedding, however, the cellist and guitarist did such a good job that no one (including myself) noticed. The only reason I knew about the missing violin was I woke up to an email apologizing and giving us a partial refund which I thought was spectacular customer service. Our DJ Brianna was phenomenal! The dance floor was packed from immediately after dinner to the end of the reception at midnight. Every song she played was amazing, and she never resorted to playing those silly dances like the chicken dance and the cupid shuffle that is played at every wedding (we asked her to try not to play those). My friends and family keep saying that she was one of the best Wedding DJs they’ve ever experienced. Brianna was the best part of our reception, and I can’t thank her enough for making our wedding reception a night to remember!Sent on 08/14/2019
