Music is a crucial part of the wedding reception. My husband and I knew we wanted a DJ that was going to bring life to the party and keep our guests dancing till the evening was over. After asking for recommendations from friends, numerous people suggested Toast and Jams. We reached out and were immediately connected with our own personal DJ. Alli Klein was a dream to work with, she scheduled a preliminary meeting where we got to sit down and discuss our music preferences and literally tailor an evening of music that was going to satisfy ours and our guests taste. She did and amazing job of keeping the evening on track and flowing from the bridal party introductions to pacing out the speeches to the first dances. Alli achieved exactly what we wanted and that was keeping our guests and ourselves dancing on a packed dance floor until the evening concluded. Following the wedding we have received multiple compliments from all ages on how fantastic the music and our DJ was. We can’t thank Alli enough for bringing such a fun and positive energy to the evening. It truly was a magician night that we will never forget.

We don’t know the first thing about weddings, photographers, flowers, catering or music. So when we started planning our wedding, we relied on our vendors to steer us in the right direction and share their experience with us. Jessi’s expertise was evident from our first call together. She asked all the right questions, helped us plan the flow of the reception, and most importantly, she listened and took time to get to know us. She recommended that reflected our personalities perfectly, and when our wedding day arrived, she had planned a playlist that included our eclectic musical tastes (a mix of showtunes, 80s, jazz and current pop hits). Our wedding was such a special and memorable evening, and Jessi was such a big part of that. We’d hire her again in an instant!

Music is a very important part of our lives and our relationship, so we wanted to make sure that we had a DJ that reflected that. Toast & Jam came highly recommended from everyone we asked and they delivered! Olivia, our DJ, made sure that the soundtrack incorporated music from both of our personal playlists and her creative sequencing ensured the dance floor was always packed. Throughout the night, some of our favorite songs were sprinkled in amongst crowd-pleasers and we found ourselves rushing for the dance floor. Weeks later, those in attendance are still complimenting the DJ. Toast & Jam and Olivia went above and beyond our expectations and set the perfect mood for our wedding day, guaranteeing a night we won’t forget.

Where do we begin? I guess from the start. It all began at Rootstock, a little wine bar, where Nick and I met Eric for the first time. It was love from the first talk of wedding tunes. Eric immediately got us. He was prepared with all the right questions to get our wedding music vibes flowing so he could make what was truly the best soundtrack to the best day. Eric is a TOP NOTCH DJ and we have been recommending him (and Toast + Jam) to EVERYONE! When we set out to find the right music for our big day, we knew we had to have the best. We gathered recommendations and spent a lot of time researching and reading reviews. The one constant was Toast + Jam. We are so incredibly happy we booked them because we were paired with Eric and honestly he's the BEST! Still to this day we get complaints on our music. People say things like "I haven't danced like that in a long time!" -- "I haven't had that much fun at a wedding in forever!" - "Holy moly, who was your DJ because he kept the party LIT the whole night!" We even had a little scary moment when a family member passed out, the party stopped and I was nervous we wouldn't be able to get it going again, but Eric came to the rescue and pumped up the jams and within minutes people were back on the dance floor. We couldn't be happier with our decision to go with Toast + Jam and so frickin' grateful the universe gave us Eric to DJ our most favorite day! We love you Eric! You're the man! <3

We had an absolute blast at our wedding and a big part was our DJ, Alli! We had guests coming up to us all night saying how good the music was and we agreed! There was not a part during the night that the music wasn't great and it was seamless transition from ceremony, to cocktail hour, to dinner, and finally to the dance floor. Alli also ensured our vows and the toasts went off without a hitch. The only thing we regret was we couldn't keep partying with Alli all night.

Having Jenna as our DJ was the best decision ever! Not only did she listen to all of our ideas, she also provided us with some great feedback and suggestions. Planning a wedding by yourself is stressful enough, especially if you have never done it before, so when the vendor is understanding and patient, it really makes the process that much smoother. Jenna is quick on her feet and has amazing intuition. Not every single detail can be planned out ahead of time, and sometimes you have to improvise, which is what Jenna did! We had to cut our wedding short, and we could not get through all the song choices, but Jenna delivered her best and ended the night with a bang! Thank you so much, Jenna and T&J!

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!

We had a wonderful day of wedding experience and a big part of the success was our wonderful DJ Shannon and Toast and Jam!

My wife and I originally wanted a band for our wedding, and honestly, we got one in Shannon. That live electricity, that specific talent for reading a room...guys, I *crowd surfed* at my own wedding. It was an absolute breeze communicating our hilariously varied music taste to her, and it was a straight up pleasure knowing the night was in her hands. We threw announcements and logistics and requests her way; she’s fast on her feet and keeps the party going. It’s been a week now and all I’m hearing from loved ones is how much she crushed it. When all our best people literally enveloped us chanting the final Hey Jude na na na’s in unison, it didn’t feel like the end of the night. It felt like we were ringing in something big, something sacred, something meaningful. We’ll cherish that for the rest of our lives, and it’s all your fault, Shannon. Thank you.

Jessi went so far beyond my expectations for a DJ - I was honestly blown away. Not only did she expertly deal with my crazy time zone difference (planned a wedding from Japan for a venue in Chicago) but we connected from our first video chat call. She understood the mood that we wanted during the entire evening and put together an absolutely perfect playlist for our cocktail hour and for after-dinner dancing. She was a perfect MC the entire night, kindly and quickly moving everyone on to each of the night’s events. I honestly never knew how much goes into a wedding before planning my own and I was so grateful to have her on my side supporting me and my husband so that we could have an easy, breezy night. I can’t praise her enough! Thank you so much, Jessi!! <3
