  • Backthird did an amazing job at our wedding! We used a pop strings trio for the ceremony, and a DJ for the cocktails/dinner/dancing. The planning process was so easy with the online portal, and they were always quick to respond to any emails. Our DJ Scott did an amazing job at keeping the dance floor alive - I'm pretty sure the dance floor was full from the second it opened to the very end! We can't say enough good things about our experience!

  • First of all, Backthird is incredibly easy to work with. They are responsive and kind and always willing to answer questions. We had live piano for our ceremony and cocktail hour, played by Louise Kelly. Louise did a beautiful job. The ceremony songs brought tears to my eyes, they were so perfect. Our DJ for dinner/reception was Scott Krema, as well as his assistant Ramsey. The music choices, the entire night, were perfect. Scott kept people dancing which is always the goal. And near the end of the night, he surprised us and played a Christmas song, which if you knew me, you’d know is the way to my heart. It was absolutely perfect. He listened to what we wanted and truly delivered. I can’t thank him enough for the incredible work he did.

  • We loved working with Backthird - Robbie, our account manager, was attentive and thoughtful of our needs throughout the entire process (over a year). Jack was our DJ and was absolutely fantastic. We had some odd requests for dinner music and weren't sure where to go for cocktail music. He navigated all of these things so well. Guests commented on how smoothly everything was transitioned, thanks to Jack. We've been to weddings where names are mispronounced or the DJ is fumbling over his words, this was so not the case for us! Jack handled everything perfectly. We are so glad we chose Backthird Entertainment, I would suggest them to everyone!

  • Can't say enough about this entire team, but especially our DJ, Isobela! She was AMAZING! We gave her some simple guidelines (rat pack for cocktail hour, our guests requests, no toasts, etc.) and she nailed it! Our guests raved about the music, even though a lot of them were too shy to dance! She was so easy to work with and we had a blast! Thank you so much for a wonderfully, musical evening!

  • I am SO happy I went with Backthird! Scott was fantastic! The online planning system was so easy to fill out and really made our final meeting so easy. Scott was super laid back and chill and made everything that we wanted happen. Our guests were on the dance floor all night! It was a great mix of fun upbeat and slow music. Our guests had so much fun!

  • Backthird was so perfect for our wedding!! We had Scott as our DJ, and he could not have done a better job matching his music to our vision of the night. Everyone was put on the dance floor, old and young! And we did not want the night to end. It was a smooth planning process from start to end and Robbie was very efficient at communicating and matching us up with an appropriate DJ. I would highly recommend them to my family and friends.

  • DJ Scott Krema did a terrific job at my wedding. He was kind, professional and communicative. The dance floor was full all night! I only remember one song not working well, and Scott changed to a requested song mid-way and the floor was full again. Thanks again for a wonderful party, Scott!!

  • 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. Honestly, there is no reason to consider using any other DJ. Backthird is the best of the best!

  • 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 weddi...

  • 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.

  • Stephen and the Backthird Entertainment crew did an OUTSTANDING job with the music at our ceremony and reception! When my husband and I didn't know what kind of ceremony music to play, Stephen had some great suggestions for us based on our musical tastes. And the guests at the wedding all raved about how great the music was the whole night! You will NOT regret booking with Backthird Entertainment and Stephen!! I can't recommend them highly enough!

  • We were recommended BackThird by The Haight. We were looking for DJ who was able to help us keep the dance floor going all night. They did not disappoint. Stephen helped us from the beginning. From setting up a custom playlist, to helping us weed out songs we wanted on our Do Not Play list. Stephen also helped us put together a unique list for our ceremony & cocktail hour. He also did an excellent job picking songs to help keep the night going. We are eternally grateful for helping us make our wedding night a day to remember!

  • 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!

  • 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. 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.
