I can’t say enough great things about Alli! We hired her for our wedding in Oct 2018 and she was so much fun to work with. She really listened to what we wanted and offered appropriate suggestions when we needed them. She’s so upbeat and knows her jams. She put together a playlist that our friends and family STILL talk about and our dance floor was going til the very end of the night!

From planning day one to the big day, DJ Alli made music the most fun and least stressful part of the whole wedding process. She has tons of experience and as soon as we met with her for the first time we knew we could trust her to do a wonderful job. She conquered the difficult challenge of merging me and my husbands two distinct and eclectic musical tastes into the perfect mix for the setting. Working with her was a nice mix of us choosing a few songs we really did or didn’t want to hear, but knowing she would choose additional songs that we’d like and everyone would want to dance to. From the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, to the post-dinner dancing, the perfect songs for the moment kept playing, thanks to Alli. People kept coming up to us all night saying how good all the songs were. Reading the room masterfully, Alli picked the perfect time to put on our final song of the night: Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On. This lead to one of the most magical moments of the whole wedding as the whole guest party joined arms and sang together. Going beyond just the music, Alli was enthusiastic from the beginning about being an integral part of directing all elements of the wedding so they proceeded seamlessly. She helped everyone giving speeches learn how to use the microphone ahead of time and gave us 5 minute warnings before all the big dances and the bouquet toss. Highly recommend DJ Alli and Toast & Jam for anyone’s big day!

So, let me tell you about DJ Norah. From the day that we first met with Nora, we knew that she was our DJ. She instantly got our tastes and made us feel like she would guide us through. And she did! She really helped us organize the how things would go during the day, and made it happen. And, she kept the dance floor moving! She really read the floor, and gave everyone what they wanted. We are so happy, and lucky, that she was part of our day.

We had an amazing experience working with DJ Norah. From our very first interactions until last call on our wedding night, Norah has been supportive, professional and super fun to work with. We live in California, so planning an out of state wedding was not easy, but Norah took the lead and gave us great advice on music choices and our reception timeline to help keep our guests happy and on the dance floor. She was very open to our wacky ideas and willing to do whatever she could to make our vision come true. Guests of all ages danced the night away and continue to compliment her awesome playlists.

If you want to get the party started right, get started quickly, and keep it going through the night, you unquestionably need DJ Norah (Utley). She understands how to get all the people on the dance floor and keep them there until folks need to take breaks from the beats. We had an amazing wedding day and evening and without question, DJ Norah helped elevate the evening to another level with a truly killer and excellent playlist starting at the cocktail hour and dinner service and going into the wee hours of the night. The best compliment I can give came from our guests who asked if we’d picked all the songs (answer, no we didn’t) because it felt like the playlist we would have made for a dance party. (Admission: we are both music nerds/obsessives/aficionados and may or may not own over 1500 records ranging from 50s Soul to French Pop to early 90s Hip-Hop to 80s/90s/00s Pop to Downtempo Electronic. IOTW a wide range.) And, Norah found the perfect dance party expression of our taste matched to rhythm of dance floor. We would give highest and greatest recommendation for DJ Norah (and T&J) to help provide the soundtrack to your amazing day. — K&A

We feel so lucky to have had Karin as our DJ. All of our guests were raving about her, saying she was the best DJ they had ever seen at any wedding. Karin worked with us to find the perfect first dance song, and helped us craft a perfect set of ceremony music. Most importantly, she absolutely killed the reception — everyone was dancing the entire night. We have never had more fun dancing in our entire life and have never seen so people of every age on the dance floor for so much of the evening. We are so happy we went with Toast & Jam for our wedding DJs — they were well worth it!

DJ Alli was phenomenal! From our first meeting to our big day, she was very fun and attentive. The play lists she put together for the cocktail hour and the reception were a true reflection of our personalities and our requests. Everyone we spoke to raved about the song choices and said how they didn’t want to stop dancing. We really loved the unique style of Toast and Jam. Its refreshing to have a DJ company that stays away from flashing lights and over played songs. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to have a unique and memorable wedding.

We can’t emphasize just how fantastic our experience with DJ Alli was! We chose Toast and Jam after my brother and sister in law used them for their wedding several years ago. We had only heard good things and that proved to be true. Alli was a huge help through the planning process. She helped us to form an outline of our reception, had fantastic suggestions and worked seamlessly with our other vendors. My husband and I literally gave her very little guidance (seriously, we had one song on our not to play list) yet she absolutely nailed it. Our dance floor was hopping the entire night and our friends and family have continued to tell us how much they loved the music. We cannot recommend Alli enough. On a side note, Alli was also kind enough to give us an extensive list of things to do in Maui after we mentioned we were going there on our honeymoon- not only is her music selection spot on, her travel suggestions were perfect too!

Emily A. was amazing! We had already heard from so many married friends that hiring Toast and Jam was one of the best wedding planning decisions they had made. From the jump, Emily assured us that our party would feel unique to us and she went above and beyond to give us and our guests the party of our lives. She even helped us coordinate our friends band performing at the end of the night! She sound checked them and everything! Emily A. is a rockstar and Toast and Jam is the absolute best!

Alli. Was. Flawless!!! From our initial meetings, to the end of the night, working with T&J and DJ Alli was such a breeze. She honored our requests, kept the party going and the dance floor full! Our dinner playlist especially truly felt customized to our personal taste, which was impressive because we were pretty vague with our selections. I would recommend T&J and Alli to anyone and would hire them again in a heartbeat! We received many compliments from our guests and had the best time ever! Thanks Alli!!!
