The stars and quantity of great reviews speak for themselves. After attending several weddings with disappointing DJs, we new a great DJ was important to us. Toast & Jam had the best reviews and the fortunately the market is very closely priced. They were our number one choice after reviewing a few competitors. We were assigned Kate & Rachel as our DJ duo. We were so excited to know their DJ friendship story and to have them at the wedding. Kate & Rachel were incredibly calming the week before the wedding as we reviewed the final details. They did an incredible job of keeping the dance floor active even when we were pulled away from it. They also hit all our favorite songs. We couldn't recommend T&J and K&R more.

T&J was a recommendation by our photography and we couldn’t be happier to have selected them to be our DJ. From the moment I reviewed their website and viewed their ‘don’t play’ video we knew that we’d be a perfect match.
We had the esteemed pleasure of working with Mary from T&J. I came into our first meeting with specific ideas for the ROS but Mary was able to bring her seasoned expertise into the conversation to steer us in the right direction. She had also worked with many of our other vendors in the past so it made coordinating the details of the ceremony that much smoother.
We LOVED the song mix throughout the night and so did our guests because our dance floor was filled all night long. In the end, Mary’s recommendations on the timing of the dances and the way she read our crowd throughout the night was spot on.
I’d recommend T&J to every Chicago wedding couple because they were the best!

Where do I start!? Rachel was absolutely wonderful from the first moment my Wife and I contacted her. She was incredibly knowledgeable of her music selection and helped guide us in the right direction so we could have an epic dance party at our wedding, all while giving us control of the music we wanted to hear. I highly recommend anyone who wants to hear more than a Spotify playlist at their wedding to use Toast & Jam. I promise and you and your guests will not regret it.

Awesome! Our DJ was Dustin and the music couldn't have been better! We were able to give very little direction on what types of music we wanted and he was able to choose the perfect songs all night. The dance floor was literally packed until the cleaning crew came in at the end of the night!

When we were looking for a DJ for our wedding, the name Toast & Jam kept coming up from all of our friends who had been to weddings recently where the DJ had done a great job. After meeting with Kate, we immediately understood why. The whole experience was completely painless - we just filled out a sheet with our musical preferences and added a bunch of information about songs and bands we liked and Kate took care of the rest. Rather than us building a playlist, Kate used our input from the two pre-wedding meetings we had with her and the reaction of the crowd to keep the playlist rocking all night. We had so many people complimenting the music during the wedding that I lost count, and the dance floor was packed all night - the true sign of great wedding music! She also handled the music for our ceremony and did an awesome job coordinating with our officiant and the venue to make sure all of the entrances, speeches, and announcements went smoothly, which made our night a heck of a lot easier. Overall, I can’t recommend Toast & Jam - and specifically Kate - enough.

Having Kristin Marks as our DJ was the perfect addition to our wedding. We were kind of clueless about wedding planning, and she helped us so much. SHe explained and gave options for what usually happens in terms of ceremony order, toasts, first dances, etc. All that stuff you've seen a million times but don't actually pay attention to until you realize you now have to organize it. Kristin provided the ceremony audio as well as threw us an amazing dance party. Seriously. She kept our dance floor rocking, and she danced the entire night herself from behind the table. SO MANY of our guests were like, "we want to be your DJ's friend". Even though I know she must do a wedding every weekend, she looked like she was having a fabulous time, which helped me have a fabulous time too! We could not have asked for more. We are so happy Kristin was part of our day!

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.

Hiring Toast & Jam was a fantastic decision for our wedding! We had DJ Jess and all of our guests commented on how epic she made our dance floor. We were a little random as my husband's family is Russian and you eat multiple courses throughout the evening. Jess helped us create mini dance sets and the dance floor was packed for every single one of them! It was important to us that all of our guests felt like they owned the dance floor. She had our parents rocking out and we had friends who didn't get off of the dance floor until 1:30 in the morning. Jess also really knew how to read the crowd and she just made the evening about us. I'm a dork who likes oldies and my husband likes more EDM, etc. She somehow pulled it off and it was amazing! Also, she helped us create the timeline for the evening that we used for our food and photographer. We would recommend Toast & Jam 100%!

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!
