Tim was fantastic! He worked with us prior to our wedding to ensure the music was perfect. From the ceremony to the end of the reception, he did a phenomenal job and the dance floor was always packed! We highly recommend Tim and Toast and Jam!

Planning any wedding can be extremely stressful and the two things people always remember are the food and the music. While the food was great, the music was outstanding. We were able to give Shannon simple “do’s” and “don’t” and she masterfully put together a great evening for us. I would never hesitate to recommend Toast and Jam for any occasion. Of course Shannon would be my recommendation for the DJ but if the others are at least half as good, any event will be successful.

We had Karin as our DJ and she rocked it. Our dance floor was ALWAYS busy and we had full dance party until the very last song. John and I will never forget during our final song "Piano Man" all of our guests formed a circle and joined hands and they motioned for John and I danced in the middle, and they all surrounded us, singing and swaying, it was a magical and powerful moment for us. Karin thank you for making that memory for us! You were awesome and the party flowed the whole night at your hand. Bravo!

Our wedding at RM Champagne was phenomenal and Eric was a huge help in making it that way. He met with us multiple times in advance to really get to know our musical tastes and how we wanted the event to go, even researching and getting to know more obscure music we wanted to hear that he wasn't as familiar with; he was extremely professional in executing it on the day of and created a really fun evening for us, reading the room's vibe and adjusting all along the way - lots of compliments from our guests and high marks and gratitude from us.

We could not rave more loudly about how much we loved working with DJ Karin and the Toast & Jam fam. Karin made our day so extra special. She was incredibly caring, patient, and fun-loving, and even edited a song's length for us up to the day before the actual wedding. She was awesome, and kept our crew of guests on the dance floor with their most creative dancing shoes on. Thank you so much, Karin - we truly loved every moment of working with you!

We had the privilege of working with Shannon, who is awesome and easy to talk to. She absolutely nailed our taste: the dancefloor was packed with friends and family all night! Shannon also acted as a great MC, not intrusive or cheesy! The entire night moved along according to our timeline seamlessly – ceremony music, speech announcements, everything was perfectly executed. We can’t say thank you enough for the outstanding professionalism and experience we received from T&J and Shannon.

Emily did a stellar job DJ’ing our wedding and we could not be more impressed with our Toast and Jam experience. From our first meeting with Emily, where she attentively listened to us share our music tastes and asked plenty of questions to better understand our wedding vision, we knew the T & J was the right choice. She was full of ideas, suggestions and help that helped guide not just the music but also the whole event. She started off before the ceremony with soft instrumental songs then set the tone through cocktail hour and dinner with some fun yet unobtrusive favorites before kicking off the dance party with a medley of high energy jams from all decades and genres. Emily worked with the mood of the room and each song went perfectly with the feel of the moment. For days after our wedding, guests shared with us how much they enjoyed the music throughout the evening. Emily is professional and fun with a wide range of music knowledge and a great sense of timing. We recommend her and T & J 1000x over!

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.

We felt so lucky to have Karin as our DJ on our special day. During our meetings with her prior to the wedding, it was clear she understood and even shared our music tastes, putting us completely at ease for whatever music selection she put together. She really made our reception an awesome party, and SO MANY of our guests complimented not only the music but also Karin and how it seemed she was truly enjoying her time with us, always with a smile on her face. It was really a pleasure working with her!

DJ Eric is the newest member to Toast & Jam and we were his first wedding. I have to say that Eric killed it. Not only did he play great music and read the crowd well, he also was there with us from the start. Even when we couldn't meet face to face, we did face time. We gave him a list of music we were in to and he took it from there. He also did our ceremony and nailed it. I can't speak for all the other DJ's but I can say that with Eric it really felt like we not only got our moneys worth, but also made a friend. He is a great guy, great DJ, and I would HIGHLY recommend him for any wedding. Thanks Eric for everything. I hope to be on the dance floor with you behind the music again someday.
