Our wedding was a dream come true and you did an incredible job. We have received countless compliments on your performance and will happily be recommending Toast and Jam to all of our friends who are getting married in Chicago. We really appreciate that you helped us make the outside ceremony music happen, it was a big highlight of our day to walk down the aisle to our chosen song! Thank you again!
Ann & Jim
I just wanted to say that the wedding was so much fun and we got so many props on your sweet skills. We could not be more pleased. You kept the party going non-stop! Jim loves his grunge and marriage is about compromise. So I want to thank you so much. We had a great, memorable time... and you were a huge part of it!

Toast and Jam was fabulous! We enjoyed working with them and really appreciated their willingness to mix in traditional Jewish music and modern Israeli songs along with a healthy dose of the indie, pop, disco and funk that we love. The result was eminently danceable and radically non-corny, the perfect compliment to our love fest. Over the course of the night and an excellent mix we danced the hora, got down with our dachshund and feared for our lives while friends and family hoisted us up on chairs.

Thank you so much for doing an amazing job on our wedding music. Dave and I loved you and and we got so many compliments from our guests! You can tell that you did such a great job because the dance floor was packed all night! Thanks again for helping to make our wedding so special!

During our reception, guest after guest approached me about our “exceptional dj…and she's a chick”, as my one music-loving cousin put it! However, I think that the real test of a great DJ isn’t just the “dancability” of the songs played from 9pm – 12am (while crucial, indeed, it’s not everything), but rather the “listenability” of the music played from 6pm – 9pm (during cocktails and dinner). I mean, really, a little Frank Sinatra goes a long way if you ask me. Our DJ passed with FLYING COLORS! In fact, the music played for those three hours was arguably the best chilled-out, laid-back playlist I’ve ever heard, like ever!

THANK YOU for helping us throw such a great party! I loved every minute of it! The ceremony music was beautifully done, and the reception was a complete and total blast. Everyone keeps sending me notes and e-mails about how great the music was, asking which DJ company I used, etc. We could not have been more pleased! And we knew it from the moment we met you… it was love! I will be shouting your name from the rooftops. And if ever I have a large party again, I’m comin’ straight atcha.

Everyone keeps telling us how awesome you are (and I'm like yeah, I know). My favorite comment was that one of my friends kept waiting for you to play something mediocre so she could go to the bathroom, but you never did. I think she went eventually, but I'm not sure...

Seriously, we heard from so many people who said they had never had so much fun at a wedding before, because they were dancing to the ridiculously great music the whole night. And besides the music, it was the pacing and the tone you helped us set that really added up to a fantastic night. You totally understood the type of music we were hoping for, and clearly knew exactly how to keep the party going! Not to mention the way you handled all of our last minute schedule changes, indecision, and general lack of organization . I felt like we were in such good hands for the evening that I never really worried about it at all - which I think is probably a good way to sum up why I would recommend you and the whole Toast & Jam team to anyone and everyone.

Toast and Jam Rocks. We had DJ Emily and she was a total pleasure to work with. I could not believe how many of our friends and family stayed until the very end of the reception and the dance floor was packed. Emily met with us and had phone conversations with us multiple times to make sure that she understood the style of music we wanted for cocktail hour, dinner and reception. And she hit the nail right on the head. She did not play one song that I didn't like, and I can't think of any songs that I would rather have had played. Toast and Jam is a phenomenal group to work with. Bravo, ladies!

Bryan and I loved your work at our wedding! I felt like we didn't give you that much guidance as far as what to play but all the songs that you played were awesome. I felt that all speeches and announcements were very smooth and professional. We also loved how you were able to get the whole crowd moving to the dance floor after dinner. Everyone was out dancing! And then later on in the evening after the early crowd left, the party completely got a second wind as the dance floor turned into an awesome dance party. There was soo much energy and everyone was chanting for another song when the night was over. That's exactly how every bride wants her wedding to end and I felt that it probably wouldn't have happened without you! Thanks!
