When we got engaged, we only really wanted one thing... an amazing dance party at our wedding. The way to an amazing dance party: an open bar and a kick-a$$ DJ. After setting our date and booking our venue, the first vendor we booked was T&J and we couldn't have made a better choice. We heard awesome things about Toast and Jam, and after meeting with Emily we were sold. I was slightly worried our musical tastes wouldn't live up the the expectations of a seasoned DJ, and that she'd laugh that we really just listen to a smattering of radio stations, 90s alternative, and chill "bro" music, but Emily made us feel completely comfortable, understood our style, and for once we didn't feel like we had to apologize for our taste in music. Come the wedding, Emily did not disappoint. The playlists were spot on, and we repeatedly received compliments on how awesome the music was. In particular, our friends flipped when deep cuts from Third Eye Blind started playing during dinner, but we really couldn't take any of the credit. After dinner, the dance floor opened up and it seemed no one was in their seats for the rest of the night. Emily took our tastes and turned it into the best dance party we've ever had! Thanks!

Caitlin from T+J did an OUTSTANDING job at our wedding! DJ's can make or break a wedding and it was hard for us to give up control because we've seen it go downhill a number of times. Guests would rather be at the bar or out on the patio or really anywhere but on the dance floor dancing to that awful song your college roommate requested. From the very first meeting though, we knew Caitlin was perfect for the job and relaxed big time with her in charge. She got to know us and our plans for the event and then crafted an amazing playlist that brought the atmosphere we envisioned to life. She nailed it on the flow and timing and gracefully handled last minute changes as well as our "no requests" policy. Our guests danced all night long and we ended with the most amazing group sing-along to one of our favorite songs. On a scale of 1 to 10, Caitlin is a 15. We can't recommend Caitlin and T+J enough!

From the first planning session, to the day of the wedding, Daniel was cool, calm, and professional. We finalized details well in advance, so we knew exactly what to expect day-of. Daniel worked with us to come up with a set that was both customized and fresh, keeping us and our guests happy and dancing for the entire night. We loved that we got to hear all our favorite songs without sacrificing the dance party! The whole night was flawless, and our crowd had so much fun- we could not thank Daniel enough!!!

Daniel was such a pleasure to work with! He was very accommodating and made sure we knew what songs we needed to pick, what information he needed from us, the type of songs that we loved and hated. He was an excellent emcee as well! When it was time to party, he kept the crowd going by playing a variety of songs that were in our "yes, please play" list. Toast & Jam definitely contributed a lot to the awesomeness of our wedding day.

We had previously been to a wedding that Karin had DJ'd and she was amazing. She was so good that we knew immediately that we wanted to book her for our wedding! Karin did an amazing job at our wedding as well. She was so professional and helpful from the day we met her, and that carried over to our wedding day. I can't remember the first song she played but the dance floor was immediately packed and our guests danced all night long. We highly recommend Karin!!

Daniel was fantastic! He worked with us to plan the perfect playlist. All of our guests requests were played and everyone danced the night away. We recommend Daniel and Toast and Jam for your event!

I loved working with Toast & Jam! We used Toast & Jam for our recent wedding on November 9, 2013. Our DJ was Shannon Duffy who was a pleasure to work with - responsive to email, easy to talk and work with when we met in person and overall just awesome. We used Shannon for both our cocktail hour and dinner/reception. She played all of the music that we wanted to hear in regards to the tone and style when we switched to different event in the night such as from cocktail hour to dinner and then to dancing! We went from Frou Frou during dinner to every possible upbeat genre that you can think of during dancing that kept the crowd on their feet! It was just perfect! Even better, Shannon came out during our last song, American Pie by John McLean, before the evening was over and danced with the crowd... it was great! With all of the stuff that I had to do the day of and focus on, Shannon was spot on. I never heard from her about issues, she took her own direction and helped me stay organized the day of when lining the wedding party up, speeches, etc and always kept us in the loop that day. She really made our lives easier! If you're looking for a great DJ and an amazing company but not the typical wedding DJ, T&J is the place for you. I would recommend T&J to anyone and everyone! In fact, I just did for a co-worker who is recently engaged and he can't wait for his meeting with T&J! Thank you so much for everything and making our wedding day so wonderful and easy Shannon and Toast & Jam!

Karin was the DJ for our August wedding in Chicago. We couldn't have asked for a more amazing time! Everyone had a blast and the dance floor was full the entire evening. Our family and friends are still talking about how our wedding was one of the best! Karin played a big part in this. She was responsive, easy to work with and super friendly.

Shannon Duffy at Toast & Jam was integral to making our wedding as fun and memorable as it was, and we can't say enough good things about her! From the planning to the execution of our wedding music, she was a dream to work with -- organized, professional, fun, and spunky. During the planning process, Shannon knew all of the right questions to ask to personalize our experience and make our wedding flow seamlessly. At the wedding, she read the energy of the room so well that everyone got out on the dance floor and got down with their bad selves wink Many of our guests even pulled us aside afterwards to compliment her energy and enthusiasm! We'd DEFINITELY recommend working with Shannon for your wedding or special event -- you'll be happy you did!

Katie LaBombard was so incredible at our September wedding!! We asked her to play Jay Z and Warren G for the bridal party entrance and mix it into Happy and I'm on top of the world and she didn't bat an eye - you should have seen the crowd react to such a unique entrance / mix of songs. She played a mix of everything during cocktail hour and dinner. So many times our guests came up to us and said did I really hear Elvis followed by Snoop Dog followed by Eddie Money -that is awesome! Post dinner everyone was on the dance floor and even my Father at the end of the night said the music made this the best party he has ever been too. Katie rolled with everything we threw at her and best of all she looked like she was having a blast the entire evening. She kept us on track the whole night and adjusted to every scheduling changes. Katie reviewed our timeline numerous times prior to the wedding and partnered with our cater to make sure things just happened. One of the best parts of the evening was when Jerry and his mother did the mother son dance. His mom has MS so she wasn't able to dance for very long and Katie was able to quickly transition when given the cue and invite everyone to join them on the dance floor and make it so natural. She made the evening so memorable and most of all the creative, fun, and quirky environment we were looking for. Weeks later I am still being told that our variety in music was the best people have heard at a wedding and mention of specific songs people were thrilled to hear. I absolutely recommend you book Katie immediately for your wedding - you will be thrilled you did!! Katie thanks for everything you did to make the night unforgettable!!!
