We were referred to T&J by a friend who used them for their wedding and we are SO happy we did! We had Kate for our wedding and we got along really well from the moment we met. She made planning the day really easy; we could tell she had DJ'd tons of weddings before. We gave her a ton of freedom in music and only said we wanted to dance a lot, and she absolutely delivered -- the dance floor was packed until the lights came on! And there was great variety too, so that people of all ages got out and danced. The music for the ceremony was perfection, as was the cocktail hour/dinner. I'm not sure how she does it, but she just knows the right song to play at the right time. It felt like we had a friend up there choosing our favorite songs. We would book T+J again without question, and you should too.

Dustin was an amazing DJ. I sent him a ton of Romanian music that I wanted him to play during dinner and after the first dances. He incorporated it wonderfully. I had some very specific do not play requests and must plays - he absolutely nailed it. We decided to extend our wedding reception, in part, because he kept the dance floor going all night.

DJ Dustin Drase was assigned as our wedding DJ and he was AWESOME! All of our guest kept telling us how great he was and really kept people out on the dance floor. My advice to anyone selecting a DJ is to share with them some of your personal playlists so they know what type of songs and music are your favorites. They'll take care of keeping people dancing. Also, avoid DJ handcuffs... that means don't cross everything off their lists and say they're not allowed to play it. Instead, give them the names of a few artists (3-4) that you absolutely don't want them to play.

We got married on 8/6/16 at Room1520 - an awesome venue, for the perfect wedding! We were lucky enough to score DJ Kristin for the evening and all we can say is WOW!! Talk about someone that LOVES their job. She was a professional and friend all the way through, and really showed up the evening of the wedding. Her smile (and dancing) lit up the room and set the bar for the evening.

Music was the MOST important piece of our wedding puzzle. We wanted our dance floor packed the entire night, and people complaining about being sore the next morning. Mission accomplished. Kristin worked with us to create a specific tone for the evening. We had music surprises throughout the night, which Kristin spaced out perfectly, that gave so much energy to the dance floor.

Everything you read about Toast & Jam is true, so there's no need to repeat. There are so many options when it comes to music, but after going through the process, I can't even begin to imagine the night without Kristin. It was the perfect evening, everything we had hoped for (and more) and we owe it all to DJ Kristin. Thank you so much for the unforgettable memories.

Oh... They have toasts coasters in their office. Loved that!

Incredible service! Dustin from Toast & Jam was amazing to work with, made everything so easy on us, and was EXTREMELY helpful in song selections. He went well above and beyond what we had expected and were ecstatic with the results. We really cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Dustin and Toast & Jam.

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!

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.

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.
