Robbie oversees all Backthird’s Chicago-area operations, from hiring and developing talent to booking and executing events – but most of his time is spent as an account manager, making sure individual clients have a great experience. Robbie is an amateur penny-whistle player and an irredeemable Lord of the Rings geek.
Louise serves both wedding couples and our corporate contacts, ensuring Backthird clients’ events are as happy and easy as possible. She’s been working as a pianist, singer-songwriter and music educator for more than 20 years and performing at Backthird events since 2011. Louise’s biggest inspirations are her two girls, Bella and Noelle – although Stevie Wonder is pretty high on the list too.
Scott oversees production, training and culture for all our DJs and musicians – he’s the one making sure the right group of people are at the right place with the right gear every single weekend. When he’s not DJing his own events, Scott maintains our sound equipment and organizes monthly DJ meetings. And when he’s not doing THAT, he’s probably geeking out about pro sports or the latest Star Wars film.
Benjie founded Backthird Entertainment in 2005, and since then has performed at hundreds of events as an MC, DJ and musician. He is the creator of Backthird’s wedding DJ certification program and the music arranger for our pop strings ensembles. Benjie also writes a majority of the posts for the Backthird blog.
