Katie was awesome to work with! She is a great DJ and we highly recommend Toast and Jam for your wedding! The song lists that are provided along with the "Do Not Play" list of stale music really attracted us to Toast and Jam. This made the process of choosing our wedding music super easy. Despite planning our wedding from out-of-state, we were able to meet our DJ via FaceTime to get familiar with her personality and style and to discuss the details of our event. The entire process was a breeze. Leading up to our wedding date, Katie was easy to get in touch with and responded to our questions promptly. We worked with her to create a very unique musical backdrop to our wedding to cover the entire reception, including a cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. Katie was so much fun and very professional. All of our wedding guests loved the music and said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Great DJ!

Emily was awesome!! From the timing of our first song to watching the crowd and knowing just the right time to ramp up the music or slow it down. We gave our music "must haves" and left the rest to Emily. We got so many comments from family and friends on the great song selections the entire night. We had a diverse group of people who ALL thought the music rocked! Emily's energy and passion for what she does really came through all night until the very last song...Don't Stop Believin'. Thanks Toast and Jam for giving us Emily and making our wedding the best night ever!

Toast and Jam is amazing! Shannon was our DJ, and she kept the dance floor jam packed the entire night. When we met with her prior to the wedding, we gave her a short list of songs and artists that described our taste in music. Shannon was able to take that short list and transform it into a perfect playlist for cocktails, dinner, and three hours of booty shaking! There honestly was not a millisecond when the dance floor wasn't chock full of our energized guests. We are beyond thrilled with our decision to hire Toast and Jam. Thanks for keeping the party going, Shannon!!!

Karin is a rock star - she kept our wedding guests going strong on the dance floor from the minute it opened to the very last song. We’ve had so many friends and family members comment on how much they enjoyed the music – and we owe it all to Karin. She took our completely random music tastes & song favorites and turned it into an incredible playlist with seamless transitions. 

Not only was the dancing portion absolute perfection, but Karin was able to also make sure that the songs we wanted for our ceremony (completely non-traditional) work with our wedding party size and overall theme. The music played during cocktails and dinner really highlighted our favorites, but also played to the wide age range of those at our reception.

Thank you, Karin! You really made our wedding memorable.

Toast and Jam really knows how to throw a party! Karin was a great DJ and such a wonderful person. We planned our wedding in Chicago remotely from New York, so all of our meetings with Karin were remote. The process could not have been easier. We met over Skype a couple times, and discussed our lives, tastes in music, and plans for the wedding. By the end of the process, I felt like Karin understood what my wife and I were looking for out of our evening - and she certainly proved she did! The ceremony sounded beautiful and the reception was a blast. By the end of the night I felt like we gave our guests a unique and fun mix of music that fell a little bit outside of the wedding-music box, but Karin knew where to take it to keep everyone having a great time! Thank you so much, Karin!

Karin is such an amazingly talented DJ! We had a rather small morning wedding with an early afternoon reception, so we were a little worried that no matter how much booze we provided, none of our guests would want to dance. Karin, however, made it happen – so many people were having a blast on the dance floor! By the end of the afternoon, we could barely get one of my aunts to stop dancing! Karin really made the transition from ceremony to reception smooth, in spite of the space being a potential logistical nightmare. She exceeded our expectations, and we highly recommend her - you cannot go wrong with Karin!

I cannot more highly recommend Toast & Jam! Emily DJ'd our wedding ceremony and reception in July 2013 and was simply fabulous. I had heard another T&J DJ at a friend's wedding so it was a no brainer that we'd hire them, especially after meeting Emily (so fun!) and seeing their extremely reasonable (possibly even too low) pricing. Emily was among my most responsive wedding vendors (I am very organized and I really, really appreciate the few vendors who are as well) and she was super enthusiastic and helpful giving us feedback on song choices, timelines, setup and pretty much any question we had. She was an absolute pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding and she kept the dance floor rockin' with a really cool variety of music that appealed to guests young and old. I wish I could get married again so I could hire Emily to DJ!

Emily from Toast & Jam really helped us in planning the reception timeline, and everything happened seamlessly the day of the wedding. She integrated a Persian ceremony for us and she timed the speeches and first dances perfectly, we didn't have to worry about anything. The music during the dancing was better than we could have planned ourselves. She was great to work with, and we got a lot of compliments on the music!! Our wedding was perfect!

Tabitha kept our dance floor packed all night while keeping the music exactly our style. She really took the time to get to know us before the wedding and it showed during our cocktail hour & reception. We couldn't have been happier with everything, not only with Tabitha personally but with Toast & Jam overall.

If the priest is the officiant of the wedding, then the DJ is the officiant of the reception. The music provided by Kristin Marks at our wedding was masterful and we do not say that lightly. Kristin was our audio EMT and had her finger on our wedding's rhythmic pulse the entire night making sure the party never died. From enticing melodies to get everyone (and we DO mean everyone) on the dance floor to epic crescendos that we thought could not be topped...until the next song. It was scary how well Kristin could read the minds of my wife, our guests, and myself and pick the right song to keep the party going. From our initial meeting to begging her for one more song, our experience with Kristin and the Toast & Jam team was outstanding and exceeded our hopes. Thank you and keep up the wonderful work!
