We are so glad we chose Jenna as our wedding DJ! Before the wedding, she was very easy to work with and matched our detail-oriented approach. She had a good understanding of what we wanted the event to be like and the logistics for our venue. We were on the same page about so many things, including using gender-inclusive language. On our wedding day, she kept things humming along and made sure everything was in place for the ceremony and speeches. We got so many compliments on how great the music was! Our guests and we had so much fun! On top of how great Jenna was, we loved Toast & Jam’s framework for communicating our musical likes and dislikes!

We worked with Toast & Jam for our October 2019 wedding and wow are we SO glad we did!! From our first meeting, I knew Rachel would get our friends and family on the dance floor. She made sure that she asked what songs our parents and older guests might want to hear, as well as songs that were important to us, and incorporated them during dinner and throughout the night. Additionally - our guests were on the dance floor ALL night long. My favorite thing is that it was not just younger guests dancing - guests of all ages enjoyed the music and were out there!Rachel also worked flawlessly with our string quartet for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Both Rachel and Toast&Jam were fabulous to work with and we can not recommend them enough! Many of our guests commented this was the best music they had ever heard at a wedding - and we feel the same! We highly recommend Rachel and the Toast & Jam team!

Guys. Everyone stop and read about how amazing DJ Sean is, My husband and I had heard about Toast & Jam through a mutual friend who’d used them for her wedding and had great things to say. I reached out and got matched with Sean J, who was available on our date. We knew within seconds of meeting Sean that he was our DJ. He is sweet, patient, laid back, and CRAZY knowledge about music. Like for real, this guy knows his stuff. Sean also made sure to incorporate our musical tastes, and went above and beyond in helping us prepare and feel comfortable leading up to our day.On the day itself, Sean worked with a tricky setup but made the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the reception feel completely seamless. We got SO many compliments from guests – Sean has amazing taste in music and knows what kind of songs to play to keep the night moving. You know how at weddings, certain songs get everyone on the dance floor, but then they leave when the next song starts? Yea, we had none of that – every.single.song was a hit. Our guests were literally getting tired because they didn’t want to take a break and leave the dance floor.I seriously cannot rave about Sean enough. I wish I needed a DJ for regular everyday life because we think he is just so cool and would love an excuse to hang out with him again. Don’t look anywhere else for a DJ – Sean is your guy.

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!
