Mike & NathalieAlli made our wedding so much fun! Both of us were on the dance floor almost the whole night - every time we tried to sit down, she'd put on another song SO GOOD we had to be out there. Her song selection was so close to our own tastes that it was spooky. At one point Alli pulled a deep Bon Iver cut that Mike loved but hadn't heard in years. At one point Alli pulled a deep Bon Iver cut that Mike loved but hadn't heard in years. Multiple people asked Nathalie "did you make this playlist?" since the music playing felt so "us." At the same time, she adjusted to the tastes and preferences of our guests as well, playing Toto's "Africa" upon request and throwing on some Paul Simon when Nathalie's uncles stepped out onto the dance floor. Overall, an A+ experience and one of the best parts of our wedding.

Zach & AndreaPicking the DJ was the easiest part of wedding planning; every married couple, caterer, and venue we asked for recommendations ALL said Toast & Jam. With unanimous suggestions and no seconds place it was an obvious choice. With so many things that could go wrong, we decided to hedge our bets with a sure-thing DJ. Planning an out-of-state wedding was a stressful adventure but Shannon and T&J made the music/entertainment part easy. Despite our constantly changing plans, and 11th hour venue change, Shannon did not miss a beat and had helpful suggestions and reassuring advice at every step. She made it easy for us to include our favorite songs (even the obscure ones!), and also introduced us to some new music before the big day. The party was great, and there was some music for everyone from the nine-year-olds to the ninety-year olds.

Susan & NickWould definitely recommend DJ Michael! He was incredibly responsive to our questions whenever we reached out, and was very detail oriented throughout the entire process. It never felt like anything was going to slip through the cracks. Michael did a great job of incorporating the songs we knew we wanted played into his overall set, which all flowed together in a cohesive/seamless way. We got incredibly positive feedback about the music from our wedding guests. Thank you Michael for doing your part in helping to make it such a memorable night.
Meaghan and MichaelDJ Alli did an incredible job bringing the party to our reception. Alli catered to a variety of interests, keeping not only our older guests grooving but also our younger friends. Throughout the process, Alli helped mold our ideal for the perfect reception into an incredible playlist. Would highly recommend to any couple looking to a book a DJ for their reception.

Taroh & ChrisMy husband and I had a phenomenal wedding and DJ Shannon was a huge part of that! We appreciated her supportive, easy going manner from our first meeting with her, all the way to our last dance. She heard our desires and worked her music magic! Throughout our wedding day, her sweet and calm spirit permeated as she made announcements, gave the bridal party introduction, etc. We had a lot of detailed aspects to our wedding music, and she went above and beyond to accommodate. Our ceremony and reception were emotionally captivating, thanks to Shannon and her exceptional work. I would choose her (and T&J) all over again.

Huyen and Derek FosterToast & Jam was recommended to us by our venue and from the moment we reached out for our first meeting, we knew Emily would be our DJ, regardless if we picked the company or not. This left us feeling very confident that if we picked Toast & jam we would receive a personalized experience. Fast forward to our final meeting before the wedding and Emily had notes from things we discussed at our first meeting with her to everything we said we wanted in between. We enjoy music like most people but are not experts so we relied heavily on recommendations from Emily and she hit the nail on the head with everything from the ceremony to cocktail hour to the final call!

Ferian & BrianEric was great to work with; from our introductory meeting, through the planning and ultimately the big day. He was very generous with his time in listening to what our vision was for the reception. We had a pretty eclectic variety of music, and Eric was able to work with all of it. He keep the music fresh, and the dance floor packed. Not only were my wife and I totally happy with Eric, It was awesome to hear from guests the next day about how great the music and dancing was: "where did you find that DJ!!!?"

Tim and MaureenToast and Jam provided us with an awesome experience for our wedding. Norah, our DJ, worked with us on an intimate level to customize our experience to fit our exact vision. I wanted a DJ who could provide a broad range across Indie Rock, Classic Rock, Pop, and Hip Hop. What Norah created was a fun, balanced songlist that really hit on all levels. Our dance floor, as a result, was rocking all night long. I highly recommend Toast and Jam if you want a more eclectic wedding DJ experience, and not just your standard wedding DJ!

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!

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.
