Event DJ


Toast & Jam is a DJ company based in Chicago, IL. We DJ a variety of parties and events all over the Chicago-area: weddings, holiday parties, birthdays, etc. We specialize in working with our clients to customize a playlist perfect for their tastes. We reject line dances, props, and other gimmicks in favor of perfectly planned and well-timed soundtracks that appeal to every partygoer. At Toast & Jam, we believe that a thoughtful mix of pop favorites, hip-hop bootyshakers, Motown classics, and timeless standards are a fun and self-respecting alternative to those played out and embarrassing dance floor cliches. 



We're looking for music-obsessed candidates to join our team! Ideally, we're looking for people with DJ experience (radio / bar DJ nights count!) and their own equipment (not vinyl- we are digital.) We can train the right person and will consider DJs without their own gear on a case-by-case basis.

Skills & Qualifications: 

Because you will be corresponding with clients via email and on the phone on a regular basis, this job requires excellent written and verbal communication skills. You will also need superior customer service skills in order to coordinate with clients, other event vendors, venue contacts, etc. As a representative of Toast & Jam, you must be professional, organized, self-reliant, and enthusiastic. You will be managing several clients and their event details so organizational skills are a must. You must be able to exercise good judgement under pressure and remain professional at all times. You must also be able to lift 50 lbs.

To Apply: 

Please contact hello@toastandjamdjs.com with your resume, a 30 minute cocktail hour playlist, and 45 minute playlist of the first hour of a dance set. Both should appeal to a wide audience. Please answer the following questions.

1. What kind of DJ experience do you have?

2. Why do you want to work for Toast & Jam?

3. How would you describe your taste in music? What are your favorite and least favorite bands/musicians?

4. Please list any DJ equipment you own / equipment you are comfortable operating.

5. We book events a year in advance. What does your availability look like for the next 12-18 months and are you comfortable contracting that far in advance? How many gigs are you looking to book a month? All T&J DJs are required to work Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.

6. Can you lift 50 lbs?
