We were at a wedding a couple of years ago and couldn't stop talking about how much we loved the DJ. Come to find out, it was Rachel from T&J! We decided right then that when we decided to get married, we'd need to check out this awesome DJ. Rachel was so much fun to work with. The planning meetings were so easy as Rachel walked us through a sample timeline and we talked through things that we liked/disliked music-wise. We had a few weird requests going in and she managed to flawlessly work them into the night. She played all of our favorites (without being asked to, she just knew!) and our dance floor was packed the entire night. She was also a fantastic emcee, always calm and laid back, making the night flow exactly as we hoped. We never had to worry for a second that anything would go wrong. We loved working with Rachel and highly recommend her!!

Emily and everyone at Toast & Jam were fantastic! Right from the start, Emily listened to our ideas, provided her feedback and worked with us to make sure the night was fun, entertaining and most of all, a piece of us. The music selection was fantastic and we received so many compliments from our guests saying how great the music was. We'd recommend Toast & Jam and specifically Emily to anyone and everyone.

Emily killed it! She was instrumental in making the wedding timeline and atmosphere a success; she really knew how to read and work the crowd. She provided great advice and guidance for how the evening would run – including the dances, announcements, and cadence of the songs. She incorporated our song selections and notes perfectly, then added her own flare and did her ‘DJ-thing’ wonderfully. Emily inspired confidence in the entire process and delivered a top notch evening. She and Toast & Jam are highly recommended by us.

Rebecca did an AWESOME job at our wedding! We just gave her a few songs we definitely wanted to hear and she had them ready to go, other than that she read the crowd and kept the party going. Everything sounded great and the whole set up was very professional. I don't think the dance floor was empty all night! Thanks again for making our night so memorable...

My husband and I weren't going to get a DJ because we hate the cheesy "hey hey hey" man who has the strobe lighting and glow stick feel. I'm SO incredibly thankful that a friend referred me to Toast and Jam as a "refreshing compliment to the already beautiful day" and those words fit Caitlin and her traits perfectly! You'll read the reviews that they are so good at what they do (beat matching, pitch fixing, reading the crowds, etc) but what my husband and I were very surprised about was how knowledgeable Caitlin was about the entire day, order of events, etc. She made us think about things we would have totally forgotten and truly took every ounce of stress away from me by thoroughly covering all bases in our 2 meetings together. (i.e. who's going to do the blessing, when are you going to cut the cake, do you want the father of the bride to make a thank you speech or would you 2 like to) - those are things that never even crossed our minds and she helped us get our ducks in a row. It's super refreshing to have a wedding vendor who isn't in it for the money. They don't treat you like a business transaction but more of an awesome compliment to making the day perfect. I highly, highly recommend Caitlin and the entire staff of Toast and Jam!

Emily Agustin worked the turntables for our wedding on 5/24/14, and she was INCREDIBLE. From the moment we reached out to Toast and Jam to the last song of the night, Emily was there to walk us through the process and make sure we had a party to remember. She provided us a detailed list of songs for approval and then developed a playlist that was absolutely reflective of our tastes. Most importantly, she taught us the concept of "dance floor glue!" Thanks to her, the party was rocking all night. We had an amazing evening, and we can't recommend Emily - and the entire T&J crew - enough. Thanks, Emily!

DJ Emily Agustin was absolutely the best! She was super awesome to work with, listened to what we wanted and incorporated songs we wanted played into her playlist, and just rocked it on the big day. Our guests were dancing the entire night; we don’t think there was ever a point where the dance floor was empty! Thank you to Emily, and Toast and Jam, for making our wedding one our guests will definitely remember!!

Toast and Jam's Karin was literally the BEST DJ EVER at our wedding! We had a gorgeous wedding at Cafe Brauer in Lincoln Park with wonderful food, floral, a stunning church, etc etc ... but all our guests could talk about was the music! The dancing was non stop all night - people literally did not want to leave the dance floor. Kids, elderly, aunts/uncles... there was not one person not out there. Dru and I are like broken records repeating to one another over and over again how great the music was and how much it helped kick off and keep going that insane dance party! Karin is incredible at her job. She was able to mix in some sweet songs without ANYONE leaving the dance floor. We almost had to step in and shut the crowd down when they were practically harassing her for "one more song" over and over again at the end of the night! If you are getting married in Chicago, you need Toast and Jam. End of story.

Our wedding DJ Katie LaBombard was nothing short of incredible. She listened to us and got a great gauge of the mood we were going for our wedding. By the end of the night people were raving about what a wonderful time was had and how the dance floor stayed packed the entire night. Katie also went the extra mile of Emceeing the wedding and transitioning us perfectly. Everything went perfect and that was in no small part due to Katie. Thanks for her Toast and Jam!
