To this day, we STILL get nothing but amazing feedback on our wedding DJ, Norah with Toast&Jam. She absolutely KILLED it! She made the entire song selection process so easy and knew EXACTLY what we wanted played on our wedding day and what not to play. Besides being an amazing person.. she made the end of the night when she played her last song and started packing up. One of our guests started singing “wonder wall” and then everyone joined in. Instead of continuing to pack up, she got back on the DJ set and played wonder wall for everyone to sing to as our very last song of the night. This made our wedding that much more special!

Figuring out our music was one of the most stressful and challenging parts of planning a wedding. We are dance people, and have particular music tastes. Enter DJ Emily. From the beginning, she was receptive to our ideas, while also relieving our concerns with her expertise and care. When we could not come up with one song for our first dance, she created an original mashup of two songs we wanted. Our wedding would not have been the musical dream we had envisioned without the skill and intention from Emily. We had many guests praise the dancing and music at our wedding as the best they had attended. If we ever plan another large-scale party, we will be sure to make it work for her schedule to have her there!

So, let me tell you about DJ Norah. From the day that we first met with Nora, we knew that she was our DJ. She instantly got our tastes and made us feel like she would guide us through. And she did! She really helped us organize the how things would go during the day, and made it happen. And, she kept the dance floor moving! She really read the floor, and gave everyone what they wanted. We are so happy, and lucky, that she was part of our day.

If you want to get the party started right, get started quickly, and keep it going through the night, you unquestionably need DJ Norah (Utley). She understands how to get all the people on the dance floor and keep them there until folks need to take breaks from the beats. We had an amazing wedding day and evening and without question, DJ Norah helped elevate the evening to another level with a truly killer and excellent playlist starting at the cocktail hour and dinner service and going into the wee hours of the night. The best compliment I can give came from our guests who asked if we'd picked all the songs (answer, no we didn't) because it felt like the playlist we would have made for a dance party. (Admission: we are both music nerds/obsessives/aficionados and may or may not own over 1500 records ranging from 50s Soul to French Pop to early 90s Hip-Hop to 80s/90s/00s Pop to Downtempo Electronic. IOTW a wide range.) And, Norah found the perfect dance party expression of our taste matched to rhythm of dance floor. We would give highest and greatest recommendation for DJ Norah (and T&J) to help provide the soundtrack to your amazing day. - K&A

We searched many websites to choose our DJ and when we found Toast & Jam we knew they were it. Their website was the only one that published they had worked with Gay clientele & had great reviews and pictures of gay couples. It was important for us to use gay friendly vendors. Eric Anthony was our DJ and all we can say is WOW! From the moment we met him it was an instant connection. He just “got it”. He was so helpful through the entire process and we felt like we struck gold. He had tons of suggestions and made sure we were always on the same page. He took complete care of us the night of the wedding without being glued to our hip. His communication was clear, and he is a great listener. He is definitely you’re A-Z DJ and a fabulous MC. An amazing experience. Steven & Barry

We feel so lucky to have had Karin as our DJ. All of our guests were raving about her, saying she was the best DJ they had ever seen at any wedding. Karin worked with us to find the perfect first dance song, and helped us craft a perfect set of ceremony music. Most importantly, she absolutely killed the reception - everyone was dancing the entire night. We have never had more fun dancing in our entire life and have never seen so people of every age on the dance floor for so much of the evening. We are so happy we went with Toast & Jam for our wedding DJs - they were well worth it!

We had an amazing experience working with DJ Norah. From our very first interactions until last call on our wedding night, Norah has been supportive, professional and super fun to work with. We live in California, so planning an out of state wedding was not easy, but Norah took the lead and gave us great advice on music choices and our reception timeline to help keep our guests happy and on the dance floor. She was very open to our wacky ideas and willing to do whatever she could to make our vision come true. Guests of all ages danced the night away and continue to compliment her awesome playlists.

Eric was the best! Toast and Jam has to be the best wedding or event DJ company in the greater Chicago area. We had family members, who haven’t danced in decades, out on the floor boogieing down like they were regulars at the local nightclub. We had a couple af meeting with Eric, so he could get a feel for what kind of people we were and he delivered in a way we never could have expected. He pulled songs I haven’t listened to since I was in high school. All night long, family members were telling me how great my “friend” Eric was doing. He was so comfortable, and friendly, both with my wife and I, and our guests, that everyone thought he had known us for years. We would definitely recommend toast and jam, and Eric in particular, to anyone who’s looking to have an event dj. We will surely be keeping his contact info, for our next major event.

We can't praise Karin from Toast and Jam enough. Music and dancing was a huge priority to use and we were looking for something pretty specific. Karin took our requests ( tons of 80s, a Halloween mash-up etc..) and ran with it. Mike and I did not leave the dance floor the entire night, and we got constant praise from guests saying that we had he best music/ DJ of any other wedding they've been to. We are still getting positive feedback! Thank you for making the night so special for us. You really can't go wrong with Toast and Jam.

DJ Alli was phenomenal! From our first meeting to our big day, she was very fun and attentive. The play lists she put together for the cocktail hour and the reception were a true reflection of our personalities and our requests. Everyone we spoke to raved about the song choices and said how they didn't want to stop dancing. We really loved the unique style of Toast and Jam. Its refreshing to have a DJ company that stays away from flashing lights and over played songs. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to have a unique and memorable wedding.

If a Toast & Jam event is for you,
you should totally Call us.
