We had such a blast with our Toast & Jam DJ, Norah Utley! Not only did she provide great music to dance to, but she also was fantastic at keeping us on track during the reception! She was super fun and really personable; we absolutely loved working with her!

Shannon was a phenomenal DJ! She just got us right away and provided the most perfect dancing music we could have imagined. All 200 of our guests hit the dance floor hard all night and didn't leave until the last dance. Thank you for helping us create the incredibly fun, high-energy wedding we dreamed of!

We served Jessi a tall order for our must-have music list (a little disco, low-key 80’s, Lizzo, no one accused of #MeToo, bonus points for love songs from romcoms) and she absolutely nailed it. With all that direction and more, she knew what would work well for our group and what we wanted. During our wedding everything was smooth and effortless (just as she promised) and the dance floor was never without a dance off or group hug. On top of everything else Jessi is calm, cool, and just plain awesome to work with for your wedding or event. You’ll want to get married all over again if you work with her!

When we first contacted Toast & Jam they recommended we meet with Alice. From our first meeting I knew this was going to be the best decision we made for our special day. Alice was very organized! Besides playing amazing music she really helped to make sure our timeline and the structure of the reception went smoothly and was a night everyone would remember. I don't think anyone stopped dancing all evening! We've received so many compliments and we owe that to Alice. We cannot thank Toast & Jam and Alice enough for all the memories we made!

We knew we made the right choice going with Toast & Jam after meeting Jessi for the first time.She was so easy to work with and always responded to my (thousand) questions immediately. The day of the wedding the venue coordinator called the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour and moved everything indoors which made Jessi's job a little more hectic but she was so professional and handled it with ease. She kept that dance floor going which was a priority and Jessi delivered. We had such a blast we didn't want her to leave! As a matter of fact, I'm thinking of when I can have another party just to have her back, true story...we feel in love with our DJ. WE LOVE YOU JESSI!!!

Alice was amazing! Absolutely would recommend as the perfect DJ for any wedding or event. We planned most of our wedding from afar (which can be quite stressful), and Alice was so helpful and patient throughout the process. She helped us organize the day of events and asked the perfect questions. We were a little picky about the music, so we sent her Spotify playlists of what we were envisioning for Cocktail Hour, Dinner, and Dancing. She also provided a sheet of possible songs and genres, which we could note as definite plays vs. definite do not plays. The night of our wedding was simply PERFECT. Everyone commented on the music and how incredible our DJ was. Alice made the night about us and curated the most incredible setting for our reception. You always hear that the DJ can make or break the party -- Alice exceeded all expectations and made the evening spectacular. 5 out of 5 stars!

My (now) husband LOVES to dance! We wanted to keep the dance floor full all night and Alli did that with her awesome song choices. So many friends and family members commented on how great the music was and that they loved the variety of songs. Alli helped us figure out which songs to use for different parts of the day which was wonderful since we had no idea how many songs we needed! She even worked with my dad who recorded his own song for our first dance and was so helpful to him during that process. From everything we heard about Toast&Jam we knew we would have great music but it was even better than we imagined!

We are so glad we chose Jenna as our wedding DJ! Before the wedding, she was very easy to work with and matched our detail-oriented approach. She had a good understanding of what we wanted the event to be like and the logistics for our venue. We were on the same page about so many things, including using gender-inclusive language. On our wedding day, she kept things humming along and made sure everything was in place for the ceremony and speeches. We got so many compliments on how great the music was! Our guests and we had so much fun! On top of how great Jenna was, we loved Toast & Jam’s framework for communicating our musical likes and dislikes!

We worked with Toast & Jam for our October 2019 wedding and wow are we SO glad we did!! From our first meeting, I knew Rachel would get our friends and family on the dance floor. She made sure that she asked what songs our parents and older guests might want to hear, as well as songs that were important to us, and incorporated them during dinner and throughout the night. Additionally - our guests were on the dance floor ALL night long. My favorite thing is that it was not just younger guests dancing - guests of all ages enjoyed the music and were out there!Rachel also worked flawlessly with our string quartet for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Both Rachel and Toast&Jam were fabulous to work with and we can not recommend them enough! Many of our guests commented this was the best music they had ever heard at a wedding - and we feel the same! We highly recommend Rachel and the Toast & Jam team!

Guys. Everyone stop and read about how amazing DJ Sean is, My husband and I had heard about Toast & Jam through a mutual friend who’d used them for her wedding and had great things to say. I reached out and got matched with Sean J, who was available on our date. We knew within seconds of meeting Sean that he was our DJ. He is sweet, patient, laid back, and CRAZY knowledge about music. Like for real, this guy knows his stuff. Sean also made sure to incorporate our musical tastes, and went above and beyond in helping us prepare and feel comfortable leading up to our day.On the day itself, Sean worked with a tricky setup but made the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the reception feel completely seamless. We got SO many compliments from guests – Sean has amazing taste in music and knows what kind of songs to play to keep the night moving. You know how at weddings, certain songs get everyone on the dance floor, but then they leave when the next song starts? Yea, we had none of that – every.single.song was a hit. Our guests were literally getting tired because they didn’t want to take a break and leave the dance floor.I seriously cannot rave about Sean enough. I wish I needed a DJ for regular everyday life because we think he is just so cool and would love an excuse to hang out with him again. Don’t look anywhere else for a DJ – Sean is your guy.

If a Toast & Jam event is for you, you should totally
