Choosing Toast & Jam was one of the easiest decisions we made for our wedding - Emily was the only DJ we met! Music is a big thing for us, and Emily added the perfect details and touches at every moment. From the ceremony music, to old favorites and even working in some college-era rap, it was everything we wanted and so reflective of us. Even though we only briefly mentioned it, Emily took note of things that were important to our family - from father of the bride favorites to the groom's sister's own first dance song. Plus, Emily was really responsive to our questions. We didn't have a planner, and she also kept us on track and made sure all the speeches and dances went off without a hitch. It could not have been a better night, and we could have danced well into the wee hours!

Emily did such an amazing job at our wedding! She was so professional, organized and responsive leading up to it and the crowd just loved her day of; we got so many compliments on the music. The transitions between ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were also seamless. I highly recommend Emily and the Toast & Jam crew to anyone!

Independence GroveDJ Karin did such an amazing job! We can't remember the last wedding we went to where no one left the dance floor. Most people didn't even try our late-night food (a taco stand) because they were too busy dancing, which was totally fine by us! Karin was a hit, keeping everyone dancing, from the older generations to all of our younger friends. Even our moms were dancing to Lil' Jon towards the end of the night, which we never would have imagined, but no one wanted to leave the dance floor. We had some friends already ask her at the wedding for her card for their upcoming wedding. We could not recommend Karin and Toast & Jam enough, they were amazing!

It was love at first Skype chat with DJ Emily. She took in our complete opposite tastes in music, and created a playlist that had us saying, "ohmygosh I love this song!" The dance floor was filled the entire night thanks to Emily! We had so much fun working with her and would gladly have her DJ anything from a Tuesday afternoon dance party to our next big milestone.

We are so happy to have selected Toast & Jam as our DJ. Alli was very organized, well prepared and flexible. She met with us twice before the wedding and heard exactly what we wanted and didn’t want. She helped keep things on track during the night and handled toasts, dances, and all other announcements. It was a great time, Alli played a great mix of songs and we received loads of compliments on the variety and music choices.

Shannon Duffy did our wedding and to say that she was amazing would be an understatement. Not only did we love Shannon, but our guests did too. So many of our family and friends raved about the music. She played music that guests of all ages appreciated, so our dance floor was rocking the entire time. Not only did Shannon do great at our wedding, she was a pleasure to work with throughout the process finding the right music for our special evening. Toast and Jam is great (great service / reasonable prices), and if you go with them, ask for Shannon!

We are so glad we worked with Toast and Jams to DJ our Chicago wedding! We met with DJ Shannon as we were leading up to the wedding; she was organized and took the time to understand our music tastes and all of the details associated with the night! She coordinated set-up flawlessly, supported AV needs during dinner and of course, did an amazing job DJ'ing the dance party! She knew our tastes and read the crowd perfectly, people were dancing all night! Not to mention, Shannon is so kind and professional; she will ease all of your wedding music worries in an instant. Thanks, DJ Shannon and Toast & Jams!

Chicago Athletic AssociationKaty did an absolutely phenomenal job at our wedding. The cocktail hour music was perfect, she kept things running smoothly during the intros, speeches, and first dances, and once the real dancing started it was favorite song after favorite song! She really took our preferences into account and made sure we had the best possible experience for our special night.

We had Alli as our DJ and she was just the best! She was patient with all of our many questions and concerns and was always so quick to respond to our emails. At our wedding, Alli played all the songs we requested and read the dance floor perfectly. We were so worried no one would dance-but our the dance floor was packed all night! It was so great working with Alli and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a DJ.

Hiring a DJ was the last and most important thing we did for our wedding. We take our music and dancing very seriously. Every other vendor from the florists to the caterers we asked had Toast and Jam at the top of their list, and we found out why. Not only was DJ Alli a pleasure to work with and a sweetheart, she was also a professional and picked up on our tastes instantly using our suggestions and complemented them with her far superior knowledge of music. She MADE our wedding and it was perfect. Thanks Alli!
