"Toast and Jam was the BEST! DJ Shannon helped us throw such an amazing and unforgettable party at our wedding; we had guests dance from the moment music began until it ended. In fact, our dance floor was packed the entire night! Shannon was incredible to work with - very professional, fun, and easy to get along with. In our meetings, we talked about our perfect vibe which was, of course, "gay disco!" Shannon met our needs and exceeded. She created such a fun and exciting atmosphere for our celebration. Kaleigh and I love to dance, and all we wanted was for our friends and family to party all night - and they did! We cannot recommend DJ Shannon enough and highly recommend you go with her for the BEST NIGHT EVER!!"

Toast & Jam and our DJ Olivia, were wonderful to work with! From the planning & discovery process to providing the exact right type of vibe for our dance floor that got our guests partying hard. Due to COVID, we had to shorten our guest list and were worried we wouldn't have enough people to make the most of the dance floor - but the music choices were phenomenal and created an atmosphere where people couldn't stay away. We had to postpone our wedding - but even the transition between DJs (shoutout to our original DJ, Marjorie, for taking great notes about our style & music choices) was seamless. Toast & Jam knows what they're doing - I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!

We worked with Norah from Toast & Jam primarily and she was nothing short of awesome. From the get go she was so helpful in talking through music choices, when we would need to get song decisions to her, being patient with my music-picky husband, and she was absolutely essential to keeping everything moving smoothly during the event. Her choices for dancing were perfect, as many of my guests commented how great the songs were and were on a first name basis with her by the end of the night. On top of that she was just a joy to work with and so fun to check in with throughout the night - I don't know if that's normal but we just loved working with her. If in the Chicago area and looking for a DJ I highly recommend checking out Toast & Jam - I can't imagine a better option out there!

We can't say enough phenomenal things about our experience with DJ Jessi and Toast & Jam. From the very start, Jessi was organized, responsive, and an absolute joy to work with. Her positive attitude paired with her industry expertise made the planning process a breeze, and she was truly the MVP vendor of our wedding day. The atmosphere she created with the music was exactly what we were looking for, and we really felt like she had our backs the entire night. She quickly adapted to any challenges we faced the night of, and honestly ran the whole show perfectly! We are so grateful to have had her at our wedding, and sincerely cannot recommend Jessi and the Toast & Jam team enough!

"Norah simply made everything go smoothly from cocktail hour through the end of the reception. We did not have many opinions or requests when it came to the 'must plays' for our reception, we just wanted everyone to be on the dance floor having a good time. Without much of our direction, Norah was able to keep the good vibes flowing and the party never stopped. Norah showed that she cared and that it mattered that we had the best night ever. No one wanted to leave the dance floor at the end of the night! Norah was not only a good DJ, but she was personable and loving to us throughout the evening. She was friendly to our guests and family members and made everyone feel special! If we had it in us to plan another wedding, we would without a doubt have Norah DJ for us again! 10/10 stars!!!"

"We want to thank DJ Alice so much for an awesome night! She put together an amazing and fun playlist and took care of all our song requests! We wanted non-stop dancing all night and Alice provided the music to make that happen! Alice also did a wonderful job of announcing all the special moments from our ceremony. We couldn't have been more happy with our experience with Alice and Toast & Jam! We'd definitely recommend hiring them for your wedding! And you'll be in great hands with Alice!"

"T&J really came through for us on our wedding day! We were one of those 2020 weddings whose plans got upended, but even after all the changes we had to make to ensure our wedding was smaller and safe, it still felt like a total party. DJ Marjorie did a fantastic job understanding exactly our styles of music and what we wanted. Even during these crazy pandemic times, the excellent DJing skills were able to get our guests up and dancing all night long. All the songs we requested were played! It was an absolute pleasure working with DJ Marjorie and T&J overall. We had a blast on the dance floor!"

"Our experience with DJ Jessi from Toast & Jam was PHENOMENAL. As a couple that is very passionate and particular about music, we knew from the very first FaceTime meeting that Jessi was the DJ for us. In addition to the genres and general vibes that we discussed, Jessi was on board with our many suggestions for must-plays. We also encouraged her mixing/mash-up skills and she did NOT disappoint. She blessed us with a Whitney Houston-Steve Winwood mashup for our last song that brought the house down. Additionally, she provided sound for our ceremony (which included a live musician), and kept our reception organized and on schedule as an emcee. Throughout dinner, we continuously received compliments on the "dope ass music". Can't argue with the people once they've spoken.We would highly recommend DJ Jessi--she loves what she does, does it superbly, and wants to help make your day everything you'd dreamed."

"If you have to get married in a pandemic, you want Jessi from Toast & Jam on your team of wedding vendors. From the very start, she was professional, organized, and made us feel at ease knowing that our music was in the hands of a seasoned expert. We especially appreciated that Jessi asked all the right questions to get to know us and understand our personalities and desired wedding vibe. Through all the twists and turns of planning, Jessi was on the ball with her responsiveness, creative and fun ideas, "yes's" to our special requests, and calming demeanor. We were very lucky to have her be a part of our big day."

"Chris from Toast and Jam was the absolute best! We went back and forth about whether to have a band or DJ, and having Chris as our DJ ended up being the best decision we could have made. We had a small wedding of 65 guests, but we still wanted to make sure it was a raging party. Working with Chris was super easy and fun--he brought a great energy to the process and made us feel at ease. My husband and I have pretty wide-ranging musical interests, and Chris made sure to incorporate them while also tailoring the music to the energy of the room. Chris not only created a great party, he also did a fantastic job providing sound for the ceremony (he even brought his own DI for a family member to perform a song during the ceremony). From the second dinner ended, the dance floor was full and stayed that way all night--we didn't want it to ever be over! People continue to talk about how great the music was, and we couldn't be happier."
