Toast of Jam was a no brainer from the moment we met for the first time. The ease of booking and coordinating was attractive and Karin was no short of perfection. Music truly adds sentimental value to the ceremony and joy to the reception. Our dance floor was packed the entire night and Karin kept us on our toes. She was always one step ahead of us and made for a seamless night. Our guests were raving about the music and couldn't stay off of the dance floor. Thank you for an unforgettable evening! We would recommend Toast of Jam and Karin with the highest regards.

We were lucky to work with Karin Fjellman for our wedding. She was helpful and patient with us considering music isn't one of our strengths. Karin played great cocktail and dance music for our wedding and cued up the perfect walk up music for the speeches! It got everyone relaxed and laughing. Karin made our day better thanks to her talents and how easy she was to work with.

Everyone, young, old and in between, loved the music at our wedding, and we loved Karin. She was a wonderful person to work with. She did a wonderful job of making a great playlist out of our broad taste in music. We got so many people telling us how great the music during dinner was. Plus, the dance floor was packed all night. What more can you ask for? Thank you Karin and Toast & Jam; you guys are the best!

We cannot give Toast & Jam a high enough recommendation! We were skeptical that they could deliver on ALL the promises they make in their little video, but we can definitely say that they did! We worked with Tabitha for our wedding, and could not have been more pleased! Tabitha has performed at a lot of weddings and was super helpful in both the planning and the execution of our reception. She had great recommendations for how to organize things like speeches, toasts, first dances, etc. and really helped us figure out the tiny details that often escape you when you're planning the day far in advance. At the actual wedding, Tabitha was amazing. Not only did she MC the dinner, toasts, etc. perfectly, she really did 'read the dance floor' when we started the dancing. She had everyone up dancing for the entire time. Many guests told us after the wedding that our DJ was really excellent. True to Toast & Jam's mantra, Tabitha never did that awkward thing that many DJs do: play a set of two or three 'slow' songs in the middle of long dance sets. Not so with T&J. People danced and continued dancing for ~3 hours! We highly, highly recommend T&J, and Tabitha in particular, as wedding DJs.

We knew from the beginning that we wanted to dance the night away after our ceremony and after witnessing the bang-up job they did a few years ago at a friend's wedding, we knew the only people to trust for making our night extra special was Toast and Jam. From the beginning our DJ Shannon was friendly, professional and a breeze to work with. We're both pretty picky when it comes to music and Shannon did an amazing job of getting to know us and our preferences. The result was a night of non-stop dancing! By the end we were soaked in sweat, our feet were barking, and we were thrilled with how perfect the best night of our lives was!

We chose Toast & Jam after seeing the fantastic job they had done at a couple of other weddings, and Tabitha did not disappoint. She was organized, easy to work with, and made sure to get a detailed understanding of what we wanted before the big day. Everything was executed flawlessly, as evidenced by the friends coming up to us during cocktail hour saying "your DJ is killing it" and a dance floor that didn't slow down one bit until after the final song. We'd absolutely recommend Tabitha & the rest of the Toast & Jam crew to anyone looking for an amazing DJ.

When planning our wedding, we knew that the best weddings we had ever been to were so great in large part because of the music. As such, music was really important to us for our day. We went with Shannon at Toast and Jam and are so happy we did! She helped us get a feel for what would make the wedding go great while also putting a priority on our input. She pulled off our "no slow songs" vibe to perfection - the dance floor was full the entire night!

We absolutely LOVED Toast & Jam. Karin was our DJ and she killed it! She started with slow jams & oldies to get the majority of our guests out on the dance floor. Most people stayed out there until last call, only breaking for more drinks! Our celebration would not have been the same without Toast & Jam.

DJ Shannon was phenomenal! From the ceremony, down to the last song of the night, she read the room and worked with venue staff to ensure things moved seamlessly. She was able to play songs that reflected our tastes and made sure everyone had a great time. She even found a song from Chris’ cousin’s band to play during the reception! Shannon made our wedding the party we always hoped it would be. I couldn’t recommend Toast & Jam more highly to friends and family.

From the start, DJ Shannon was eager to make sure our wedding was awesome and that she really understood our musical tastes. She completely nailed it! We couldn't have had a better wedding and it was due to Shannon's amazing DJ skills. She was fun to work with and promptly responded to any questions or ideas we had. It was an awesome day! Thank you so much for getting our vibe and executing an awesome party. So many guests told us how much they loved the music and how much fun they had! DJ Shannon is awesome!
