Our experience with DJ Jessi from Toast & Jam was PHENOMENAL. As a couple that is very passionate and particular about music, we knew from the very first FaceTime meeting that Jessi was the DJ for us. In addition to the genres and general vibes that we discussed, Jessi was on board with our many suggestions for must-plays. We also encouraged her mixing/mash-up skills and she did NOT disappoint. She blessed us with a Whitney Houston-Steve Winwood mashup for our last song that brought the house down. Additionally, she provided sound for our ceremony (which included a live musician), and kept our reception organized and on schedule as an emcee. Throughout dinner, we continuously received compliments on the "dope ass music". Can't argue with the people once they've spoken.We would highly recommend DJ Jessi--she loves what she does, does it superbly, and wants to help make your day everything you'd dreamed.

If you have to get married in a pandemic, you want Jessi from Toast & Jam on your team of wedding vendors. From the very start, she was professional, organized, and made us feel at ease knowing that our music was in the hands of a seasoned expert. We especially appreciated that Jessi asked all the right questions to get to know us and understand our personalities and desired wedding vibe. Through all the twists and turns of planning, Jessi was on the ball with her responsiveness, creative and fun ideas, "yes's" to our special requests, and calming demeanor. We were very lucky to have her be a part of our big day.

Toast and Jam was the BEST! DJ Shannon helped us throw such an amazing and unforgettable party at our wedding; we had guests dance from the moment music began until it ended. In fact, our dance floor was packed the entire night! Shannon was incredible to work with - very professional, fun, and easy to get along with. In our meetings, we talked about our perfect vibe which was, of course, "gay disco!" Shannon met our needs and exceeded. She created such a fun and exciting atmosphere for our celebration. Kaleigh and I love to dance, and all we wanted was for our friends and family to party all night - and they did! We cannot recommend DJ Shannon enough and highly recommend you go with her for the BEST NIGHT EVER!!

Chris from Toast and Jam was the absolute best! We went back and forth about whether to have a band or DJ, and having Chris as our DJ ended up being the best decision we could have made. We had a small wedding of 65 guests, but we still wanted to make sure it was a raging party. Working with Chris was super easy and fun--he brought a great energy to the process and made us feel at ease. My husband and I have pretty wide-ranging musical interests, and Chris made sure to incorporate them while also tailoring the music to the energy of the room. Chris not only created a great party, he also did a fantastic job providing sound for the ceremony (he even brought his own DI for a family member to perform a song during the ceremony). From the second dinner ended, the dance floor was full and stayed that way all night--we didn't want it to ever be over! People continue to talk about how great the music was, and we couldn't be happier.

We had Alli from Toast & Jam for our wedding this past weekend. She exceeded all expectations and gave us the most PERFECT wedding dance floor. To quote our planner, it was the best/most packed dance floor that she had seen in the last 7 years. We provided Alli with a general foundation of what kind of music that we liked and she was able to use her creativity to come up with a cocktail hour, dinner hour and dance floor playlist that blew our minds. We are so incredibly happy with our decision to use Toast & Jam and Alli at our wedding! We would recommend her for any couple looking to have the best dance party, ever.

We heard about Toast & Jam while at our friends wedding and had to check them out. The moment we met Jess, we got the vibe this was going to be soooo goooood! She is extremely personable. Her love and knowledge of music is apparent as soon as you start talking with her. Getting it right for you is her main concern. She is full of ideas and always there to help along the way. She wove the music perfectly throughout our reception exactly to our tastes. Frankly it was like she was in our head! Her transitions were practiced and eloquent as our emcee. Our dance floor was crammed the entire evening. We can't say enough about Jess. Even our coordinator said Jess was really on top of it. Thank you, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Now hurry up and go book Jess for your event!

Tabitha from Toast & Jam made our wedding ceremony and reception perfect! I was concerned about that edits of songs for the ceremony. The aisle was short, and I knew there wouldn't be lot of time for each song to play during the processional. Tabitha was very receptive to my ideas and created the perfect excerpts! It took my breath away to hear the exact words and music play as I made my way to my groom :)Tabitha was able to bridge our music tastes with great tunes that everyone loves. My husband and I have talked about how so many of our favorites played pre-ceremony and during dinner. The dance floor was rocking all night; she took queues from the crowd and kept playing jams that the group was feeling. It was such a magical and amazing night!!

We had the most wonderful experience working with Emily!! It's as if she's a "Wedding Whisperer." From the moment we first met with her, I felt like she understood our desired flow and feel for the reception, and we knew we could trust her to play whatever would fit the mood and keep our guests happy. Day-of, she did a phenomenal job coordinating and emceeing the prayers, speeches, and dances, and by the time the last song played, the dance floor was still packed. We really were in the best hands! Now, I recommend Toast & Jam and Emily to everyone I know... I really want to go to one of these receptions as a guest!!

Olivia was the best DJ we could have ever hoped for! Everyone at our wedding said that the music was amazing - and we totally agreed! She was able to perfectly blend a mix of some very eclectic requests. Her calm and presence also helped us keep our cool on the wedding day since we did not have an on-site planner. Thank you, thank you DJ Olivia!

Kate was AMAZING! We had zero worries once we got to our reception because we knew Kate had everything taken care of! From the moment the first song came on to the last song of the night, the dance floor was packed. Our wedding venue said that of all the weddings they've had, our wedding had the most number of guests on the dance floor and stayed dancing the entire evening. WE LOVE TOAST AND JAM! Thank you for making our big day so special and fun! Claire and Erik
