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!

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

Jessi was absolutely incredible. From the start, she was easygoing and easy to work with - she understood our taste in music and what we were looking for, while also keeping us on the ball in the lead-up to our wedding. Once there, she was totally self-sufficient and made the party! The dance floor was nonstop - Jessi had us all going with banger after banger. The next morning, everyone was hoarse from singing along! Jessi was key in everything running smoothly - we cannot recommend her and Toast & Jam enough.

DJ Eric was fabulous! He played the right mix of fun (but not cheesy) songs and the dance floor was packed all night!! We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Alli was amazing!! She kept the jams flowing all night long. I repeated had guests coming up to me asking how long I had spent on curating our playlist. I proudly proclaimed that we didn't do anything, and the phenomenal music choices were all Alli. What a great dance party!

Thank you, DJ Olivia, for being an awesome DJ and emcee at our wedding! We got so many compliments on the music — our friends loved it AND our parents loved it. That’s true talent. It was literally the one and only time I have EVER seen my mom dance. I'm not kidding. A magical combination of love, Whitney Houston, and DJ Olivia got my mother to dance with me. The whole night was perfect, and we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you so very much, DJ Olivia. ❤️
