We are so grateful to Karin for her lovely DJing for our wedding. We wanted an oldies and soulful music mix and Karin effortlessly played an amazing soundtrack for our entire wedding. We didn't want any cliche wedding songs or much current music and Karin was incredibly respectful of our desired vibe. She also took requests selectively during the reception by playing only songs she thought we'd approve of which was awesome! I would highly recommend Karin and Toast & Jam for any wedding, music was the most important element to us and she delivered! <3

Karin was the DJ of our dreams come true! She was absolutely easy to work with and answered all our neurotic questions throughout the process and provided us great guidance. During the evening, she was so professional and on top of it on timing and announcements. Once the music started, the dance floor was ALWAYS packed and there was never a dull moment. Karin did a great job prepping our playlist and infusing our choices. We are so happy going with Toast and Jam and had a blast!

We had an amazing wedding all around and one of the biggest reasons why was the music. It was a surreal evening and Karin Fjellman captured the entire evening perfectly with the music. She was beyond easy to work with, has incredible taste in music, and made the entire evening flow like magic. The music from the moment the guest arrived, to the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, announcements, and then dance party reception were all beyond what I had envisioned. We couldn't have been happier with the entire experience from the get go with Toast & Jam and specifically Karen. They both come highly recommended.

One word - Awesomesauce. Eric was absolutely fantastic, our meetings were fun yet professional and he made walking through the whole experience a breeze. We have some random music tastes and he was able to weave everything together flawlessly. Once the party started I think I left the dance floor only to say my obligatory hellos to people or else I would have never left - Thank you Eric for adding to an amazing day!

Alli. Was. Flawless!!! From our initial meetings, to the end of the night, working with T&J and DJ Alli was such a breeze. She honored our requests, kept the party going and the dance floor full! Our dinner playlist especially truly felt customized to our personal taste, which was impressive because we were pretty vague with our selections. I would recommend T&J and Alli to anyone and would hire them again in a heartbeat! We received many compliments from our guests and had the best time ever! Thanks Alli!!!

We had Karin as our DJ and she rocked it. Our dance floor was ALWAYS busy and we had full dance party until the very last song. John and I will never forget during our final song "Piano Man" all of our guests formed a circle and joined hands and they motioned for John and I danced in the middle, and they all surrounded us, singing and swaying, it was a magical and powerful moment for us. Karin thank you for making that memory for us! You were awesome and the party flowed the whole night at your hand. Bravo!

Emily did an incredible job with the music at our wedding and was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Every song she played kept the crowd in it and the dance floor was going strong all night. She also worked with us to customize certain pieces of music for the ceremony and reception which allowed us to have the exact musical accompaniment we wanted throughout the day. We would highly recommend Toast and Jam and especially DJ Emily for any wedding!

Tim was fantastic! He worked with us prior to our wedding to ensure the music was perfect. From the ceremony to the end of the reception, he did a phenomenal job and the dance floor was always packed! We highly recommend Tim and Toast and Jam!

Planning any wedding can be extremely stressful and the two things people always remember are the food and the music. While the food was great, the music was outstanding. We were able to give Shannon simple “do’s” and “don’t” and she masterfully put together a great evening for us. I would never hesitate to recommend Toast and Jam for any occasion. Of course Shannon would be my recommendation for the DJ but if the others are at least half as good, any event will be successful.

We had Eric DJ our wedding, and we had A BLAST! The two planning meetings we had with him were smooth, and even though we didn't have some decisions made at our final meeting, he was easy to work with via email to finalize things. He did a fantastic job - listened to all of our must-plays and our don't-plays, and he hit the nail on the head with everything. We did cocktail bar/modern music for cocktail hour, older classic country for dinner, and a mix of old and new favorites for the dancing. Eric kept the dance floor moving and let each song play its due course. His mic'd intros for toasts and the ceremony were minimal and on point. We had an awesome time and got lots of compliments from friends on the music and the vibe in general. THANK YOU!
