Looking at the profiles of Backthird's DJ's, I had no doubt that I wanted to work with Vince! Both his focus on connecting with the guests and his interest in musical theater were perfect for me. He was very easy to get in touch with and very accommodating of our music requests.

Kelvon was AMAZING!!

I must admit my husband and I were nervous to hire a DJ as the DJ is one of the MOST important selections you can make for your event, but we are SO glad that we chose to go with Back Third and Kelvon specifically!!

I was a hot mess before my wedding and Kelvon was very laid back and relaxed. He was open to suggestions and when we had none, he went out of his way and provided us links with suggestions and ideas for popular songs as well as some of his favorites in a timely manner. It took a lot of the "where do we start" stress off of the event!

His professionalism before the event, and during, were a true value. During preparations he was very easy to get a hold of whenever I had questions or concerns and directed us step by step with reception timelines, making sure to bring up common questions and details I never thought of before. He made this very nervous bride feel comfortable and confident in her choices.

When the reception came he was PERFECT! With just a few ideas of the types of music my husband and I liked, Kelvon was able to skillfully keep the night filled with fun, special moments, and had people on the dance floor all night! He really helped make our night so very very special!

Thank you so much Kelvon!!!!

We had DJ Derek with Backthird for our wedding. From the first day we met Derek we knew we were making the right choice. First, Backthird makes planning incredibly easy with a website. In the personalized website, you can input your entire timeline, all the key songs, some must-haves, some don't-plays, and all the genres you do and don't like. Since we had our ceremony in the same venue as the reception, Derek was also able to do our ceremony music. This went perfectly. For the whole night, we heard all the music we wanted and nothing that we didn't want. Derek's playlist for us was spot on and the dance floor was never empty. We, and our friends and family, had a blast!

DJ Derek was the best! From our first consultation meeting to the last song of our wedding day, he was professional, knowledgeable, upbeat, and fun. He took our musical tastes into consideration and crafted a unique and memorable soundtrack for dinner. And during the rest of the reception, he stayed attuned to the crowd's tastes while also staying true to our Must Play list. He was also a wonderful MC, keeping the entire event flowing smoothly and keeping us all on schedule. We could not have asked for a better DJ, and we would highly recommend Backthird Audio to anyone!

We originally weren't going to hire a DJ but at the last minute we decided to find someone- like three weeks before ! Benjie worked with us to get just what we envisioned. He included live music for our ceremony that was simply amazing. And then got us through dinner and our evening 'fun' by rocking it out. Thanks to Benjie and Backthird for really coming through for us!!

Backthird Entertainment is AMAZING!!! Do yourself a favor and just book them for your big day! Twin Strings and DJ Scott enhanced our wedding to the fullest playing our cocktail and dinner music and MC-ing the night away! We received so many compliments and we cannot thank them enough! To add to the greatness, a great uncle of the grooms had not danced to a specific song in 40 years, he made the request to Scott who was able to retrieve from his song library and play for this very special uncle who was beyond pleased with the special dance! We booked Backthird solely on their professional and ability to play modern music... we definitely got we asked for and much more! I highly recommend Twin Strings and DJ Scott for any couple looking to make their special day that much more amazing!!!

Louise Kelly's trio was a great way to start the reception. The music they chose to play set the mood perfectly for the cocktail hour and dinner!

DJ Derek was everything we could have asked for in a DJ. He contacted us several times before the reception to make sure he knew what type of music we/our guests liked to listen to. He handled all changes in the timeline very well and communicated with everyone to make sure all events were known.

The music selection was great and very well catered to what our guests liked. We really wanted some ska/reggae played and he was able to put several songs in his set with no problem.

Our reception was so much fun and that was in large part due to DJ Derek and the Louise Kelly Trio. We couldn't have asked for better entertainers for the night!

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!!
