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!

We could not rave more loudly about how much we loved working with DJ Karin and the Toast & Jam fam. Karin made our day so extra special. She was incredibly caring, patient, and fun-loving, and even edited a song's length for us up to the day before the actual wedding. She was awesome, and kept our crew of guests on the dance floor with their most creative dancing shoes on. Thank you so much, Karin - we truly loved every moment of working with you!

We had the privilege of working with Shannon, who is awesome and easy to talk to. She absolutely nailed our taste: the dancefloor was packed with friends and family all night! Shannon also acted as a great MC, not intrusive or cheesy! The entire night moved along according to our timeline seamlessly – ceremony music, speech announcements, everything was perfectly executed. We can’t say thank you enough for the outstanding professionalism and experience we received from T&J and Shannon.

Our wedding at RM Champagne was phenomenal and Eric was a huge help in making it that way. He met with us multiple times in advance to really get to know our musical tastes and how we wanted the event to go, even researching and getting to know more obscure music we wanted to hear that he wasn't as familiar with; he was extremely professional in executing it on the day of and created a really fun evening for us, reading the room's vibe and adjusting all along the way - lots of compliments from our guests and high marks and gratitude from us.
