Tabitha Boorsma was fantastic! She was so easy to work with and really listened to what we wanted - even though we came in completely clueless! She read the room correctly the whole night and played music that matched the mood. Almost everyone danced! It was perfect!

We are so happy we chose Toast & Jam to DJ our wedding. Katy was so easy to work with and accommodated a last minute song change and surprise groomsmen dance without a problem! The dance floor was packed the whole night with guests of all ages. Thank you Toast & Jam!

From the comprehensive introductory phone call to the prompt and professional arrival all the way through to the perfect evening's execution we knew we were dealing with both a superior level of service and an exemplary musical IQ. Thank you to Emily Agustin for making our special night the perfect blend of classic, classy, modern, and unique.

From the moment I came across the website for Toast and Jam I knew I wanted to work with them- I mean with a creative name like that how could you not! Then I read there ALL 5 star reviews, and knew I was on the right track. I emailed the company to request a quote and they were so quick to respond and let us know that Emily Agustin was available to DJ our wedding and we could come in to meet her, man am I glad we did. She accommodated us from the first time we spoke, agreeing to do a later evening meeting to work with our schedules, she was friendly and funny, and didn't make fun of me when I suggested music anywhere from Michael Buble to Rolling stones to 2Chainz. Not only was she amazing at the meeting, every time I needed a suggestion or wanted to run something past Emily she would respond so quickly and I trusted whatever she said, because well she is the coolest chick around . When Emily came to the wedding she was SO helpful. Her and her assistant did an amazing job lining up bridal parties, and helping make announcements to help keep the evening on our time schedule. But most importantly... the reason we hired her- the music. Wow! I have never had so much fun on a dance floor and I truly don't think I am just saying that because it was my own wedding. Emily takes her time to get to know you and what you and your loved ones want to hear, and she delivers. The foundation for any good party is solid music and Emily we cannot thank you enough for making the night an absolute best. I think the best compliment I got from the wedding was all my guests were SO SORE from getting down on the dance floor. I want to throw another party just so Emily can come DJ it for us again. She made our wedding even better by being so authentic, fun and being really really amazing at her job. I would recommend Toast and Jam and specially Emily to absolutely anyone! THANK YOU AGAIN EMILY! -Michael and Lauren

We cannot say enough about the truly fantastic job Shannon of Toast & Jam did at our wedding this year. She was calm and thorough in her communication throughout the whole planning process, and at the reception, the dance floor was packed the entire evening. She knew how to read the crowd and change the music to match the energy and mood. The guests raved about her as well. We are so grateful!

We had DJ Ruby perform at our wedding at Cafe Brauer, and wow was she fantastic! She really took to heart our suggestions and the music made the celebration feel distinctly us! She nailed the special songs we carefully had chosen, and then got the party bumping with awesome music for young and old. I could see DJ ruby boppin' around herself which made me so happy - if someone truly enjoys their job as much as she does then they're definitely going to do a great job. Moreover, she went up to each of our toasters and reviewed how to use the mic effectively - we came to find out that this is very unique! From the planning stages (not just picking songs, but DJ Ruby getting a sense for our style) to the execution, she nailed every bit of it. The sound at Cafe Brauer can be a bit challenging at times, but we really had no issues thanks to her expertise. If you want a capable, dedicated, nice, and talented DJ, T&J has got you covered!

Toast & Jam was recommended to us by a good friend and we were not disappointed. From our first meeting with Norah we knew she was going to make sure our wedding/dinner party was going to be perfect. Sharon's biggest fear was that no one would dance and as you can see that wasn't a problem at all. Norah kept the tunes lively and the dance floor stayed full until we finally had to shut it down. Norah was also very thoughtful in the music she played for our cocktail hour and throughout dinner. She incorporated our 'must have' songs perfectly. Can't thank her enough for collaborating with us and making our night memorable. xoxo

Toast and Jam, specifically Jess LeMaster, was absolutely incredible to work with. Jess guided us from Day 1, with a calming presence, through exactly what we needed to know to feel confident that the music on our wedding day would be on point. And it WAS!!! We are still getting compliments on how good it was and many friends are asking us about T & J for their upcoming weddings. We can't say enough good, not only about the company and their process, but about these DJs being such quality people, a joy to work with. Jess took our input (which let's face it was limited, because we trusted her immediately) - and created music that was the backbone of our event. Because of this and the calm control she took over the day, we were at ease and able to enjoy every minute. T & J - THANK YOU!

Alli Klein was a key player in the celebration of our wedding. As a generous collaborator, she not only included songs important to us, requests from our guests, but also exhibited a mastery in the art and science of reading a crowd, selecting the right tunes at the right time to keep the energy going on the dance floor. Several months after the wedding, our friends and family still mention how she was the perfect choice to be our DJ. The Cubs also won the playoffs during the reception, and she had Go Cubs Go at the ready to pump up the high spirits even more!

Tim was awesome!! He took our different tastes in music and not only made a playlist that we loved, but one that our guests did too! People were on the dance floor the whole night, and we had several guests come up and comment on how great the DJ was. Thanks, Tim!!
