“We loved our DJ as soon as we met, so we knew he would kill it with the music - but we didn't expect the level of additional help he would give us on the wedding day! We have had so many people tell us that it was the most fun they've ever had at a wedding.”

—Kaitlin & Mike, Arranmore Farms, Oswego, Illinois



Happy made easy.

Here's a shocker: Your wedding can be awesome, and you can have a lovely time planning it too. This doesn’t take a miracle. It takes entertainers you know and trust.

Our cornerstone idea is this: Quality comes through relationship. Yep, your wedding needs the support of a professional company. But you can't have a relationship with a company. You need to know the guy who's welcoming guests and playing music at the biggest party you've ever planned.

Backthird DJs work personally with you to decide what announcements get made, what music gets played - and when. We DON'T do costumes, props or cheesy routines. We DO do personalized twists. And about half of Backthird weddings include live music, like a pop strings group or a jazz trio, in addition to the DJ.
