Backthird Entertainment
Backthird Entertainment’s goal is to make sure you’re happy AND relaxed on your wedding day, since they know finding the perfect DJ or band can be one of the most stressful parts. From bouquet tosses to cocktail hour to dad’s toast, they will have you coordinated and covered. Backthird offers a variety of music options, including a simple DJ/MC service and pop and jazz trios among others. Check out this awesome version of “Shake it Off” from the group Twin Strings, below.

Music by Design
Music by Design wants to make your wedding anything but a cookie cutter. Entertaining since the early ’90s, the company has three firm beliefs that go into their practice: class, quality, and excellence, ensuring that you won’t get a generic DJ that doesn’t pay attention to your taste.

Take a look at their 200 most requested songs.

Toast and Jam Djs
Toast & Jam is indeed the cutest group of musicians and DJs one could hope for. If you’re not yet sold by the adorable name (and website), they strive to work exclusively with the couple’s requests and have a cheese-meter that will make sure your intros, toasts, and dance floor will be as awesome as you are.
