Tabitha was our DJ for our 100 person wedding at Cafe Brauer and I think I can sum up the night with the statement that nearly every guest said they have never danced so much and people were sweating on the dance floor at our January 2nd wedding. Tabitha succeeded in getting even my uncle, who prides himself on NOT dancing, on the dance floor. She had an excellent mixing style with a very eclectic music taste ranging from big band to classic rock to indie to pop music. Everything from a spontaneous conga line to a dance off with people on the floor occurred. If dancing and music is important to you on your wedding day, Toast and Jam is the only option for you!

Ruby was our DJ and she was fantastic. She played most if not all of our must-plays and she kept everything moving splendidly. She was great to work with and very gracious and adaptable when we changed the plan on her last minute. Would definitely recommend.

We loved Toast & Jam and Daniel Musisi. We checked out Toast & Jam after Daniel was recommended to us by some friends. From what I could tell checking out DJs, they're a little on the pricier side, but we don't have any complaints after the service they delivered. They allowed us to pay with a credit card and they're insured. Both good things from a planning perspective.

The logistics were pretty straightforward. Daniel met with us once near the beginning and once near the end of the process. The first meeting we talked about what we wanted and went over a list of modern and classic songs that he uses to help build a playlist and allow us to specify anything we truly loved or hated. The last meeting we nailed down the details for stuff like the schedule, special dances, etc. When we figured out we were going to need a wireless mic, he didn't hesitate to assure us that he had it covered. The rest of the time he was available by email and always very prompt to respond.

For the day of, Daniel was there early and worked with our day-of wedding coordinator for the most part. We asked them to put the emphasis on getting started early and keeping the dance floor full, which worked out for the most part. We got started a little later than we wanted (~30 mins) but our dance floor was going pretty strong the entire night. The music was a good mix of older classics (Brown Eyed Girl, Shout), stuff we requested (The Darkness, Wagon Wheel) and more modern stuff (Shake It Off, Everytime We Touch). Daniel took a few requests from the guests where it made sense. Several of our friends were complimentary about Daniel specifically.

For the intangibles, working with T&J, and Daniel just made things easier for us, which is huge when you're tired from work, spending months trying to plan a wedding, and vendors often just don't seem to making your life easier. Not only did Daniel do a great job, his personality helped to keep us energetic and positive.

Highly recommended!

DJ Rebecca and Toast & Jam DJs were amazing! From the first meeting my husband and I knew DJ Rebecca was the perfect fit for our wedding. She understood our music interests right away. We loved filling out the music form leading up to the wedding. Our guests raved about the music - everyone wanted to set list and said it was their favorite part! Everyone hit the dance floor, including our grandparents (in their 80s!). We would very highly recommend Toast & Jam!

I cannot write enough wonderful things about Toast & Jam. This was some of the best money spent on our big event. From the very beginning our DJ, Emily, was so on top of everything. She was actually giving me recommendations for timelines, songs, etc. The process was easy, clear, and she was super flexible and easy to work with at the event.

Most importantly, her talent really made the night. The dance floor was packed until the absolute last song of the night. Many of our guests complimented the way she read the crowd, and played songs that all of our guests could enjoy.

Toast & Jam was worth every penny!!

Kristin marks of toast and made my wedding. As soon as the light dinner music started my wedding party said they wanted to steal her playlist. She had everyone of the dance floor, from my college friends to my parents friends and even grandparents. She was def. The best vendor I chose. My other friend used them for a wedding so whoever you get you will be happy with. I would recommend asking for Kristin marks. She was awesome! She danced at her booth the whole time!

Our DJ was Angie. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her, every step of the way. She was flexible and made sure her service was tailored to our wishes. She did a great job of asking the right questions to really get a feel of our music tastes. Our reception went late, until 1:00am, and some of our guests got a little tired after midnight. When the dance floor began to cool down, she knew just what to play to get everyone back out there again. The only issue for the whole night was a blown speaker at the beginning of the ceremony. It was in no way Angie's fault. The only reason it is worth noting is to show her professionalism in dealing with this issue. The problem was fixed in a flash and the rest of the ceremony went off without a hitch. After, she made sure to personally apologize to both of us. We were very impressed with Angie, from beginning to end.
