Run, don't walk, to hire Jessi. She is a talented, badass DJ, but most importantly, she LISTENS. We were so excited to start the process of wedding planning and wanted to throw a party our friends and family deserved. The music was a huge part of how we wanted to reflect our relationship during the ceremony and reception. We had a lot special requests, song cuts, and a mix for our first dance that were really important for us and Jessi delivered on all of them. When we reflect on our wedding day, one of the things that always makes us smile is how packed the dance floor was all night. People were out there the second Jessi opened the dance floor and stayed until the last song, belting out "I Wanna Dance with Somebody". We will never forget that moment. Jessi, thanks for being such a stellar part of our wedding. All you can ask for is a DJ that listens and communicates and cares and you so clearly did all those things in spades.

Our wedding was months ago, and we are still getting told how much fun everyone had. That would not have been possible without Jessi. From all music/ceremony preparations to the actual event, Jessi did an amazing job. Working with her felt like a partnership. She listened to what we wanted (without judgment – Spice Girls was played), and guided us through the process of choosing everything from ceremony music to the last song of the night, providing suggestions when needed along the way. Jessi further personalized our wedding by keeping track of the Michigan football game, and announcing the win and playing the fight song. Jessi took initiative in coordinating with other vendors and the venue, and showed up to the venue hours before to make sure everything was set. We would recommend Jessi to anyone, and cannot thank her enough for the big part she played in making our wedding such a special and fun event.

We booked Toast & Jam after our first meeting with Jessi (~8 months before our wedding date). Jessi did a great job at the first meeting of getting an idea of what our wedding, music tastes, and personalities were like, as well as what we were envisioning for our reception. The list provided by Toast & Jam of likes and dislikes is very comprehensive and helped us get an idea for the cocktail hour and reception. Jessi was very flexible with our choices and everything was solidified via a second meeting about a month before the wedding. She also provided a microphone and music for our ceremony. She made sure to work with the other vendors, have a timeline, and prep those doing readings during or conducting the ceremony. She also assisted us by cueing us when it was past time for us to thank everyone and dance and by screening extra special requests from guests through us. She was a pleasure to work with and everyone had an amazing time!

Where do we even begin... From the get go- Emily was SUCH a fantastic match for us! Her personality is stellar, and after our first meeting, we knew we were in great hands. Emily helped us create the ultimate wedding playlist, and all her recommendations were on point! Us, along with our family and friends had THE very best time at our event- from our processional song choices to our first dance to our last song of the night- the dance floor was rocking!!! Thank you, Emily!

Shannon was an amazing DJ and really had the dance floor going all night. My husband is pretty particular about music and Shannon really took it in her stride to set expectations around her playing our "must plays" and then having the liberty to play in the genres we gave her. I noticed pretty much all of our special requests between the cocktail hour, dinner and the dance floor. She also helped us decide between a couple of songs for a few of our key moments based on her expertise. My uncle danced all night and had to be dragged away by my aunt when she was tired and he wasn't alone! Would highly recommend Shannon to anyone looking for a personalized and non-cliche wedding party.

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

Alice did an absolutely incredible job with the music at our wedding! She was so great to work with throughout the wedding planning process and made sure to include everything that we wanted. She kept the dance floor alive all night and we had a blast dancing at our wedding and hearing all of our favorite music. Our guests had great things to say about her as well! Thank you, Alice, for being a highlight of our incredible day!

Olivia was the perfect DJ and kept the party going 'till the very last song! She was so easy to work with and helped keep us on schedule with our wedding timeline. We highly recommend Olivia and Toast & Jam!

We worked with Katy Albert for our wedding. Katy was amazing!! She was so communicative, kind, professional, knowledgable, and really understood our musical preferences. The planning process was seamless and enjoyable. Our guests had the best time on the dance floor and kept complimenting Katy and her music selection. She was helpful maintaining our reception timeline and facilitated the speeches, entrance, and dances. Katy read the crowd perfectly and kept everyone engaged. We were even cheering for an encore at the end of the night. No one wanted to leave!! We would highly recommend Katy and the Toast & Jam team.

What can I say?! From our first meeting with our DJ, Emily, we were hooked. She was a true professional and really had a handle on how to run a wedding reception. She was so easy going and fun to hang with.. We left our meeting inspired and excited and immediately starting picking our music for our ceremony! We had so much fun going through their list of songs. At our final meeting, she was so open to what we were asking of her (looping our processional song, playing some Greek dancing music, and a couple special requests to get our grown up pop/punk friends going). Day of, she KILLED it. Our dance floor was packed all night. The music during our dinner felt like it was pulled from a spotify playlist I would've made myself, PERFECT. She kept true to her promises and made sure that we were aware of any special moments happening during the night. Best part of all, she had worked with my dad (unknown to me) and played a version of Brown Eyed Girl that my dad had one of my high school best friends record for our father/daughter dance. What a great surprise! Our favorite memory of our wedding night came directly out of a song Emily played. 2nd to last song of the night she threw on "we are young" by Fun and it somehow turned into a massive sing along with my husband and I LITERALLY surrounded by our friends and family in a circle around us taking turns hugging and kissing and lifting us up. I remember looking at my husband with tears in my eyes saying "is this even real?!". We loved Emily and Toast and Jam. If you want a packed dance floor, with fun music to make everyone happy and create amazing memories, book them!
