KARIN CRUSHED IT! I can not even put into words how happy I am that Karin was a part of our wedding. From our first conversation, she was incredible to work with. She guided us through the entire process and knew every question to ask to make sure she understood the vibe we were going for. And, like I said, holy sh*t, she crushed it. As requested, we literally danced from the second the doors to the reception opened until every chanted for 'one more song' at the end of the night. She did SUCH a good job reading the room, keeping the night's schedule on track, and jamming with the rest of us. I can't imagine our wedding without her! You would be doing yourself a major disservice if you didn't request Karin for your event. THANK YOU, KARIN!!!

Straight to the point, Eric killed it. From the start he quickly picked up on the vibe we wanted at our wedding. It was hard for us to come up with a ton of artists and songs we liked, but using our handful of suggestions and conversations from meeting with us twice he was able to nail our music. He also worked with us and our day of coordinator to perfectly time all of our music and speaking parts. On the day of our wedding everything went perfectly and when it came time to dance he was able to keep the party going all night. It was honestly hard to leave the dance floor. We highly recommend Eric!

DJ Karin was a integral part of our wedding and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is considering hiring a professional DJ. From the first meeting to the last song, Karin helped guide us through our special day. She was extremely helpful in determining the best selection of music for our guests, understood our needs and over-exceeded our expectations. Her attention to detail and experience was something that made our day enjoyable and memorable. Almost everyone has provided nonstop compliments about Karin and the positive atmosphere she projected for our wedding. Absolute 10 out of 10, we would highly recommend DJ Karin. From ALL of us, THANK YOU!

Our DJ, Eric Anthony, was amazing! He really took the time to get to know us and our music "personalities." He totally set the mood during the ceremony and during the reception. Everyone commented that during the dance time every person was out on the dance floor. It was something no one had ever seen before. This was something that was very, very important to us. I had two newly married friends that had negative experiences with other DJ companies, so I was very picky about what company I went with. I cannot emphasize how happy I was with the music selection and how happy I was that everyone was up and dancing. My new mother in law even commented that she saw relatives dancing that never danced and her father danced several times (which was extremely rare for him). It really made my wedding day! Thank you T&J and Eric!

Eric did a fantastic job for our wedding ceremony and reception at the Morton Arboretum! He was professional and kind from our first planning meeting to the last song of the night. My groom was dancing up a storm and we had a blast all night! Thanks for the great music!

From the moment we met Eric Anthony, we had a good feeling. Super nice, professional, personable. He described the different ways we could utilize his DJ equipment from mic’ing the ceremony & toasts, classical music for the ceremony, afterwards cocktail music outside to dance music inside. Now all we had to do was pick our favorite music (which was like a part-time job that included a spreadsheet - we like a variety of music) and wait. Our second meeting, right before the wedding, we knew that with Eric’s attention to detail, we had nothing to worry about and we were correct! Throughout the event, he coordinated with our venue director to ensure everything was impeccably timed. He obviously combed through our music list and picked just the right flow. He had our guests up and dancing from the time the floor opened to last call. His enthusiasm was contagious as he jammed along with us from behind the DJ table. Don’t wait, ask for Eric early as I am positive he will be booking up well ahead.

Shannon was the best! She really set the mood for the night, and us & our guests had the best time. She was *super flexible with us on a pretty unique playlist *helped us articulate what we were looking for during the consultation *helped us set a general timeline of events *thoroughly understood what we were looking for *NONE of the cringey DJ stuff you hope to avoid like a "DJ voice" and the Cha Cha Slide I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

We are big music people and as we began the planning process we realized that the dance floor was one of the most important parts of our wedding. We had heard nothing but good things about the T&J team, and for good reason. From the moment we began working with Shannon it was nothing short of awesome! She was sweet, easy to communicate with, and totally accepted our lists of favorite songs. When it came to the day-of, our dance floor was never empty. Not only did we think it was perfect, but all of our guests raved about how great the music was throughout the night. We’re still getting comments about it! We simply had the best night of our lives and have Shannon to thank for that.

We are so grateful to Karin for her lovely DJing for our wedding. We wanted an oldies and soulful music mix and Karin effortlessly played an amazing soundtrack for our entire wedding. We didn't want any cliche wedding songs or much current music and Karin was incredibly respectful of our desired vibe. She also took requests selectively during the reception by playing only songs she thought we'd approve of which was awesome! I would highly recommend Karin and Toast & Jam for any wedding, music was the most important element to us and she delivered! <3

Karin was the DJ of our dreams come true! She was absolutely easy to work with and answered all our neurotic questions throughout the process and provided us great guidance. During the evening, she was so professional and on top of it on timing and announcements. Once the music started, the dance floor was ALWAYS packed and there was never a dull moment. Karin did a great job prepping our playlist and infusing our choices. We are so happy going with Toast and Jam and had a blast!
