Rachel from Toast & Jam was amazing
Toast & Jam is a wonderful company to work with for DJ services. My (now) husband and I worked specifically with Rachel Karlic, who was absolutely amazing. She was friendly and responsive and open to us incorporating some unconventional and original music into our wedding. She met with us on several occasions leading up to our wedding and made sure she knew our taste and our concept for the wedding. And on the day-of she executed perfectly; everyone was on the dance floor for the whole night, which was exactly what we wanted. It was amazing to see Rachel dancing along to the music as well. It was so much fun and we received countless compliments on the night. Rachel was definitely instrumental in that.Sent on 05/27/2019

Couldn't imagine a better DJ!
Picking a DJ in Chicago is hard! There are so many options! Luckily our day-of-coordinator had a vendor recommendation list and under DJ it said "Toast & Jam - they are the only DJ group I even want to mention on this page."
We were paired with Katy Albert who was phenomenal!! First of all, Katy is just a person you want to be friends with! She's so positive, authentically caring and genuinely enthusiastic about your event (in our case, wedding reception). She listened to, and incorporated, all of our preferences. We didn't give Katy too much direction - just here's our general vibe, likes and dislikes, and please keep everyone dancing - and she delivered!!! So many guests of all ages remarked how great the music was. Katy played the fun-at-all-ages music (a.k.a., ok for old people) at the beginning of the night and moving gracefully into the modern bangers at the end of the night and kept everyone having fun throughout - she read the room perfectly!
I never thought about how much "behind the scenes" work there is for a DJ, and Katy handled it all wonderfully. For all of our speakers (and we had many), Katy went around and gave a heads up that their speech was coming up soon, so to get into position. It made everything flow seamlessly and I didn't even notice it was happening. By the way, I never pointed out to Katy who our speakers were. She worked with our day-of-coordinator to identify our speakers so we could just enjoy our evening. There are so many other things she handled flawlessly behind the scenes, like announcing our shuttle departures without disrupting the dance floor, which is boring to mention here, but so appreciated from a couple who wanted everyone to have an awesome time on the dance floor - which they did!!
We can't say enough good things about our experience with Katy and Toast & Jam! We couldn't imagine our wedding day any differently!Sent on 12/01/2019

Epic dance party
My (now) husband LOVES to dance! We wanted to keep the dance floor full all night and Alli did that with her awesome song choices. So many friends and family members commented on how great the music was and that they loved the variety of songs. Alli helped us figure out which songs to use for different parts of the day which was wonderful since we had no idea how many songs we needed! She even worked with my dad who recorded his own song for our first dance and was so helpful to him during that process. From everything we heard about Toast&Jam we knew we would have great music but it was even better than we imagined!Sent on 10/31/2019
