Holiday Events

Surprising, fun and memorable.

If that’s not how they’re remembering your holiday event, perhaps it’s time to raise the bar! This year, Backthird is offering specific music sets and holiday services just for those winter celebrations. Live jazz, live pop strings, dancing and party games – all with a twist you won’t find anywhere else.

We can customize a plan to suit your guests and fit your budget. View the samples below for ideas – then contact us to get that snowball rolling before the season’s biggest party dates fill up.

Classical instruments; pop holidays.

NEW TAKES ON FAMILIAR FAVORITES. Want to surprise your guests? Backthird’s pop string ensembles play the holiday music they already love – but in our own original style. Book the standard quartet (shown at left), or opt for a quintet or trio. You can even vary the ensemble size and energy level for different parts of your event to keep the novelty high.

We often play holiday music for a portion of the night, then mix in other hits from our year-round pop strings set so the seasonal songs don’t wear out their welcome.

Jazz even Charlie Brown would love.

A HOLIDAY SPECIAL COME TO LIFE. Can anything put your guests in the holiday mood like hearing the music of childhood favorites like “A Charlie Brown Christmas?” Try hearing that music and more played live by a jazz piano trio at your next upscale event.

Jazz trios usually play about an hour of seasonal music, then mix in more conventional jazz favorites to keep the holiday vibe from wearing too thin. Want even more variety? Start with holiday music for cocktail hour, then switch to classic piano jazz or even an upbeat organ trio for dinner or after-dinner time.

GO BEYOND DINNER AND DRINKS. Backthird DJs can provide sound reinforcement for your speeches and awards – and play the soundtrack for that after-dinner dance party folks will still be talking about when the snow melts.

Need an activity that isn’t dancing? Try our year-end quiz contest. You provide the prizes; our MC hosts the party that has team tables competing in a laid-back “quiz night” style to see who knows the most 2019 trivia.

Any DJ event can include uplighting to help set the mood at your event venue – and you can always combine with our live music options for the best of both worlds. See some sample event plans and prices here, or contact us now to build the plan that suits your party.
