Toast & Jam have been phenomenal to work with. The process was easy, fun and fast. I love that our DJ wants to know what we enjoy and provides recommendations.

To put it mildly, I am music snob. When envisioning our wedding, I thought, "music? I'll just make one of my patented playlists and have one of my friends rock the iPad." Boy, am I glad I didn't. Electing to book Toast and Jam as our wedding DJ was one of the best decisions we made through the entire planning process. We were lucky enough to get Karin as our DJ who took not only took my admittedly constrictive suggestions and requests in stride, but expanded the grooves in inventive and utterly captivating ways. She choose songs that paved the pathways of our lives and relationships, and seems to have somehow tapped deep into my conscious or record collection for deep sleeper picks. How did she know my college band used to cover Le Tigre? Or that that one mix of Maple Leaves was always my favorite Le Tigre song? I suspect witchcraft.

We worked with Caitlin at Toast & Jam. She was wonderful to work with. She took the time to really understand the vibe we wanted for our wedding and was flexible as we made changes to our plan. For the wedding, she created an amazing playlist based on musical tastes as well as what would keep the dance floor going. She kept the floor going up until the last call - it was an amazing night!

Perfect! Seriously zero complaints. We were lucky enough to get Rachel and Kate together and people danced nonstop for hours. The ceremony was well timed, the announcements went as planned, but really the playlist was killer. They knew how to get the perfect blend of songs to keep all ages dancing, popular and off the beaten path as well.

Plus the evening ended with Backstreet's Back. Hire them now.

DJ Rachel did a phenomenal job at our wedding! We live abroad and Rachel was very accommodating and did all our consultations via Skype in the weeks before the wedding. Hiring Toast and Jam was a last minute decision, since we had originally planned on doing our own music for the reception. But knowing a talented professional was in charge of the music/mics/gear made our evening so much more fun and stress free! We'd highly recommend them!

Toast and Jam was AWESOME!! Caitlin was our DJ and she created an incredible dance party! From the moment dancing started, the dance floor was packed until the very end. Even our older relatives and family friends were dancing all night long. Caitlin, and the rest of the Toast and Jam staff, were excellent to work with. We enjoyed all of our planning meetings, she really took the time to get to know us and our musical tastes. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a DJ.

Emily was our DJ for our wedding in November 2015! She is the best! Toast & Jam was actually first recommended to us by our photographer, who said she had seen them often and, if we wanted a great DJ and lots of people dancing, this was the place to check out first! We wanted to book them almost immediately after looking at their website and seeing their no play list (we loved this) and fantastic reviews. We DID book them immediately after having our initial Skype call with our DJ, Emily, who was super friendly, very professional, and clearly knew her stuff! We had total faith in her and knew everything would be great. Even so, at our reception, Emily exceeded our expectations! We had some family and friends tease us before the wedding when we mentioned songs like the Chicken Dance and Cha Cha Slide wouldn't be played. They were convinced no one would dance. Not only did people dance at our wedding, but people NEVER LEFT THE DANCE FLOOR! It was always packed, even bouncing at one point, and every single person we talked to - no matter their age was, or what their taste in music was - LOVED the DJ.

We also cannot say enough great things about Emily's organization, professionalism, and expertise. We really appreciated her advise and help in planning the night out - when introductions, speeches, dinner courses, etc. would take place. She also was very quick to respond to any emails! Then the night of the wedding, she kept everything running smoothly, and it was no problem when we took things out of the schedule, changed things up, or needed her to make an extra announcement.

She was absolutely the best! We would HIGHLY recommend Toast & Jam if you want your guests to have the most fun at your wedding and keep dancing all night long!

Alli was very organized, well prepared and flexible. She met with us twice before the wedding and heard exactly what we wanted and didn’t want. She helped keep things on track during the night and handled toasts, dances, and announcements. It was a great time, Alli played a great mix of songs and we received loads of compliments on the variety and music choices.

Picking our DJ was our big splurge for our October wedding since we are such big music lovers! I actually picked this vendor out before we even had our venue, just by visiting the website. How refreshing for a DJ to actually play music you like! Nothing cheesy, and all ages were dancing all night. Kate and Rachel looked like they were really enjoying themselves, as well! The first song to get people dancing was "Cecilia" by Simon and Garfunkel. WHAT. How cool!

Toast & Jam is a well-oiled machine. We worked with them at our meeting beforehand to pick the right song for me to walk down the aisle to, as well as getting all pronunciations correct. We also gave them a list of songs to play during our cocktail hour and dinner, which was nostalgic and perfect!

Make the right decision. Get a DJ with good taste!! Thanks, Kate and Rachel!
