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. ❤️

We absolutely adored DJ Kristin. Not only did she help, by dint of her shear unshakable competence and experience, to make smooth and automated what is a stressful process (wedding planning and coordination), but moreover, and most importantly, her DJing at the wedding was FIRE! She read the room with skill and kept the guests dancing all the way until the end of the reception. It was also inspiring and enlivening to see how much she loved her work as she was breaking it down herself in the DJ booth the whole time! What a rockstar. All of our guests were raving and telling us that our wedding was among the best dance parties they had ever been to, and that DJ Kristin was the main part of that. We cannot thank her and the awesome folks at Toast & Jam enough for providing their expertise, skill, experience, and charm to make such a special day for us - we love you!

Can't express how much we appreciated and enjoyed having Alli Klein there with us on our special night. She has a great energy. She is also so proactive and organized; she kept the night going, kept us on time, and kept us smiling. Josh and I and our guests had an amazing night. The dance floor was full the entire evening and it was BUMPin' and JUMPin'. Alli Klein is amazing!!!

Working with Jessi was super easy and fun. We had never hired a DJ before so we didn’t know what to expect, but Jessi walked us through the process and made sure that she gathered all of our preferences and details. She was a great communicator throughout the planning process. She was always proactive, checking in with us multiple times before each deadline and milestone. Also, she was able to handle all of our special requests like hooking up a rented keyboard to the sound system during our ceremony. On the day of the wedding, she had an amazing playlist and she kept the dance floor packed and lively throughout the entire night. Everybody kept telling us how much they loved the music.
