When we first contacted Toast & Jam they recommended we meet with Alice. From our first meeting I knew this was going to be the best decision we made for our special day. Alice was very organized! Besides playing amazing music she really helped to make sure our timeline and the structure of the reception went smoothly and was a night everyone would remember. I don't think anyone stopped dancing all evening! We've received so many compliments and we owe that to Alice. We cannot thank Toast & Jam and Alice enough for all the memories we made!

We knew we made the right choice going with Toast & Jam after meeting Jessi for the first time.She was so easy to work with and always responded to my (thousand) questions immediately. The day of the wedding the venue coordinator called the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour and moved everything indoors which made Jessi's job a little more hectic but she was so professional and handled it with ease. She kept that dance floor going which was a priority and Jessi delivered. We had such a blast we didn't want her to leave! As a matter of fact, I'm thinking of when I can have another party just to have her back, true story...we feel in love with our DJ. WE LOVE YOU JESSI!!!

Alice was amazing! Absolutely would recommend as the perfect DJ for any wedding or event. We planned most of our wedding from afar (which can be quite stressful), and Alice was so helpful and patient throughout the process. She helped us organize the day of events and asked the perfect questions. We were a little picky about the music, so we sent her Spotify playlists of what we were envisioning for Cocktail Hour, Dinner, and Dancing. She also provided a sheet of possible songs and genres, which we could note as definite plays vs. definite do not plays. The night of our wedding was simply PERFECT. Everyone commented on the music and how incredible our DJ was. Alice made the night about us and curated the most incredible setting for our reception. You always hear that the DJ can make or break the party -- Alice exceeded all expectations and made the evening spectacular. 5 out of 5 stars!

My (now) husband LOVES to dance! We wanted to keep the dance floor full all night and Alli did that with her awesome song choices. So many friends and family members commented on how great the music was and that they loved the variety of songs. Alli helped us figure out which songs to use for different parts of the day which was wonderful since we had no idea how many songs we needed! She even worked with my dad who recorded his own song for our first dance and was so helpful to him during that process. From everything we heard about Toast&Jam we knew we would have great music but it was even better than we imagined!

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.
