You won't go wrong picking Toast & Jam for your wedding. We sure didn't! Norah Utley – an amazing DJ and a personable, caring human being. Words can't really describe how happy we were with our kick*** group of vendors, including Toast & Jam. We received all 5 star reviews from our wedding guests on the jams and how Norah interacted with everyone. My wife and I are beyond happy with how our wedding celebration at The Ivy Room turned out and our DJ played a key role in our experience!

There literally aren't enough great words to describe how wonderful Norah was to have DJing our wedding, and overall keeping the night running SO smoothly!! From the planning process to the night-of, Norah was super fun to work with, and made everything so EASY! We received SO many compliments about how amazing the music selection was, and a lot of "your DJ is so COOL!!" comments. We were even able to mix in the Game of Thrones theme song into one of our family traditional toasts - I mean how many weddings have you been to with THAT song playing?? We can't recommend Toast & Jam more, AND Norah! Thank you for making our night even more special!

We worked with DJ Allie from Toast and Jams and could not have been happier! From our initial meeting through the end of our night, Allie was a joy to work with! She knows her music and did an incredible job keeping the dance floor going all night. We received SO MANY compliments about how great the music was at our wedding, and it is all thanks to Allie. We also had Allie customize some pieces for our reception entrance and father/daughter dance. She had great suggestions for those mash ups for us, and they went off perfectly the night of our wedding. One of the things we loved most about our experience with Toast and Jam was their wedding prep questionnaire. They told us to make a date night of filling it out, we made it two date nights since we had so much fun doing it, and it really helped us brainstorm and think about the songs that we love most.

My husband and I got married in October 2020 during the pandemic with a very small group and close family. We did not get to have the large reception at the time so threw a party in August 2021. Dustin was nothing short of accommodating. He did an amazing job of listening to our every need, answering every question we had, and helping us plan the ultimate reception! He chatted with us as many times as we needed and was able to pick up on our requests very quickly. My husband and I were pretty picky on what we wanted and did not want to be played at the reception and Dustin was so easy to work with. He totally understood the vibes we were hoping for the during cocktail hour, the dinner, the early night dancing, and late night dance. So many of our guests gave us great feedback that they loved the playlist and how every song was a hit after another. There was never a dull moment, he nailed it! 10/10 would recommend using Dustin as your DJ at your wedding reception or at any event!

We can't say enough about how great Marjorie was as our DJ. From the moment we met, she was friendly, helpful, and fun to work with. We went through multiple last minute changes and Marjorie made it work flawlessly. Through our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing, she made it so easy for us through the whole process. Not to mention she did an incredible job with the music the entire event. Playing off of our music taste to give our wedding the atmosphere and fun that helped to make it so special. Highly recommended for your big day. Thanks Marjorie!

The music was truly the icing on top of cake at our wedding! We had to postpone from September '20 to June '21. I think after a year of isolation, everyone was really ready to have a good time - and a good time they got! I had several people tell me afterward that it was one of the most fun weddings they'd ever been to and the music had a huge role in that. The bops truly would not stop.I feel like usually the older people go out on the dance floor for a little bit, and then they leave when the songs get uninteresting for them, but Fallon mixed it up in a way that kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! I remember near the end of the night looking out at everyone singing and dancing to NSYNC, and being amazed they were all still there, having the best time. She did an amazing job taking our song selection and turning it into an amazing playlist. I have nothing but good things to say about her; I think we are kindred spirits. Thank you, Fallon!!!! :D

We were partnered with Maureen from T&J for our big day and she was a delight to work with. The soundtrack to your day sets the tone, and Maureen totally understand our taste and also how music should progress throughout the evening. She was so helpful and professional throughout the planning process, especially when our timelines changed, and even came earlier to be available for our ceremony and cocktail when the soloist we hired got in a car accident and we weren’t sure if we could find a replacement. She fended off requests for songs we didn’t like and gave our nervous dads words of encouragement before their toasts. She’s everything you want in your wedding DJ and more.

Karissa was our DJ for our June 2021 wedding and she was AMAZING to work with! She was responsive, personable, and really listened to my husband and I about what kind of music we liked and the overall vibe we were going for at our wedding. After our wedding was postponed due to Covid-19, we were unsure whether we would be able to have a dance floor at our wedding. Even with restrictions changing up until the day before our wedding, Karissa was super flexible and had great ideas for still keeping the evening fun and lively. My husband and I wanted to keep things very low-key, no big announcements or pageantry, and Karissa was wonderful about respecting our wishes and working with our planner to make sure the evening ran seamlessly. She even coordinated with our planner and photographer to give my husband and I a "secret" first dance, which turned out perfectly! All of our guests commented about how great Karissa was and how much they enjoyed the music at our reception! We cannot recommend her highly enough!

We are so impressed with Toast and Jam! DJ Allie and her assistant Oliver did an amazing job from beginning to end of our day. DJ Allie was so helpful and flexible in the planning process, helping us choose different songs for the day and giving advice on song lengths and even specific songs for different moments. DJ Allie was so fun to work with and we loved her taste in music! Allied did a great job coordinating with our other vendors and making sure the sound was perfect throughout the day from the ceremony to dinner to dancing. Our dance floor was packed from the start of dancing through the final song and we had so many compliments on what a fun wedding it was! I would highly recommend Toast & Jam to couples looking for a great party, and we cannot speak highly enough about the very talented DJ Allie! Thank you for helping us throw the best part ever!

We can't say how AMAZING DJ Maureen is!!!!! She made the party! My wife and I couldn't recall a time where the dancefloor was empty! She was simply amazing!!! Our guests couldn't stop talking about how great she was! She exceed our expectations! I'd highly highly recommend Maureen for any event. In the brief time that we got to know Maureen before the wedding, we feel that she hit the nail on the head about what we were looking for from a music and MC standpoint. She's simply amazing! Everyone had so much fun and couldn't stop dancing...trust me my grandparents needed a couple days to rest their legs after all the dancing they did. You should definitely consider not only Toast & Jam but DJ Maureen for your event!

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