When Michelle and I reminisce about our wedding reception, our DJ from Toast and Jam remains at the top of the list. Michael's music choices were exactly what we had talked about in earlier meetings and he followed them to the letter. We and our guests had such a great time dancing because of his talent, the playlist, and his addition of some excellent choices to accompany them. Superb! We would recommend Michael/T&J to anyone.

Not only did Norah keep the dance floor full all night long, she basically played the role of assistant wedding planner. Between organizing a set list to appease all guests, and working with our in house coordinator on the timeline, Norah was INVALUABLE on our wedding day. She even took the time to ensure plates weren't being passed during our fathers speeches and kept me on track with the timing of the whole evening. If you get the chance to work with her or any of the Toast and Jam team, do yourself a favor and book it! Truly one of the best decisions we made through the whole process.

We had an amazing experience with DJ Alli! She was everything we could have hoped for and more! Our families and friends include many music lovers with high expectations, and we could not get enough compliments about the music. Alli kept the party going and everyone dancing until the very end! She also worked seamlessly with our event captains and photographer to make everything go smoothly. We are so grateful to Alli for making our wedding so fun and memorable. Thank you Alli and T&J!!!

My husband and I greatly enjoyed working with Jessi from Toast & Jam. She was VERY responsive, professional, had great ideas to make our wedding special, and made sure our requests were followed at the wedding. I originally fell in love with the T&J website – I did not even care about meeting with any other DJ’s. And now I could not have imagined having any other DJ than Jessi at my special day. She was truly amazing! In addition – I had so many guests comment how great the music was. There were people singing during cocktail hour, dancing during dinner, and there were ALWAYS people on the dance floor after dessert was served. And at least three of our guests commented that they too had used T&J at their wedding. You really cannot go wrong!

We had a fantastic experience with DJ Chris Salveter at our wedding. He took time to understand both of us, so that he could provide great recommendations, and ultimately an amazing experience on our big night. His passion and expertise in music was clear every step of the way. Plus, Chris was more than accommodating in a somewhat challenging venue (multiple rooms, outside/inside space, etc.). He just made it all happen!

Have you ever wanted to go to a wedding where they DONT play the cheesy wedding music? I am talking a Casper and Cha Cha slide free experience. Are you looking for a DJ that WONT ask the crowd to make some noise or make cheesy one liners? Well look no further than Toast and Jams' very own DJ Alli Klein. She is very personable and very easy to work with. We gave her a list of a bunch of songs we love and she made an epic playlist. She played banger after banger. The dance floor was full the whole night, every one was sweaty and no one wanted to leave. At the end of the night our guests chanted for an encore, and DJ Alli happily accepted. We are really happy we choose Toast and Jam and got to work with DJ Alli. Miami has DJ Khaled... Chicago has DJ Alli

We originally had booked a different DJ with Toast & Jam who we absolutely loved. Unfortunately, she had to cancel which left us in a bit of a bind. Despite our initial disappointment, DJ Katy stepped in and did an absolutely phenomenal job. We honestly could not have asked for a better experience, as Katy had to deal with a schedule that veered wildly off course due to our officiant being a half hour late, and an unexpectedly loooooong toast from the father of the bride. Despite these hiccups, Katy was able to roll with the punches and keep everything moving as smoothly as possible. She couldn't have done a better job of playing the right songs at the right time and we really think her presence was the cherry on top of an already unforgettable occasion.

Eric was spectacular to work with. From the very beginning of the song selection process, Eric took the time to get to know us both, with very different music tastes. Additionally, the wide demographics of our wedding guests needed a plan on how to gradually please the guests gradually throughout the wedding reception. So many of our guests said the music was excellent with many different well known artists. Erick was personable and felt like having a good friend be our DJ. Kudos to Eric for making our special day, simply the best. Cheers to Eric, Toast and Jam!
Jo & ZiahWow! Wow! Wow! We had an awesome experience with Toast and Jam, specifically Shannon! Working with her was stress-free. We appreciated the ability to guide the theme of evening while seeing her skills as a DJ shine through, without any micromanagement from us. The ceremony went down without a hitch in large part thanks to the perfectly timed music from Shannon. When the dancing started Shannon cued up the hits and they didn't stop until a raucous, turnt, crescendo of dancing and fun at the end of the night. It was an amazing night and Shannon played a integral part in setting the mood and getting folks to shake their groove thangs.

We had a handful of friends and professionals in the wedding industry recommend hiring Toast & Jam for our wedding and we are very happy we did! We loved working with our DJ, Sean Jacobi. From start to finish, Sean and the T&J family (Dena specifically!) offered exceptional customer service. Our wedding ceremony and reception were all outdoors and required equipment set-up in a few locations. Sean took care of everything with such ease. Sean met with us twice before the wedding to get a feel for our overall music vibes and then again to go through music selections and specialty songs. Everything was executed perfectly. And most importantly, our dance floor was packed all night! We can't recommend Sean and T&J enough. They were amazing. Thank you to Sean and his team who helped make our wedding so much fun!
