Play for A-List Clients, Charge Premium Prices and Become One of the Biggest Names in the Game

You’ve got a dream. Maybe you nurture it in secret, even as loved ones advise you to stick to a “real” job. Maybe you grin and bear it as you’re told that people like you can’t hack it. “You probably can’t even lift the gear. And besides, brides hate women!” But you keep at it because you know, deep down, that rock anthems, unabashed dancing, and a well-timed slow song can imprint on someone’s memory forever – and you want to be a part of that. (Ideally, a well-paid, well-respected part of that.)

If taking that leap of starting your own business feels confusing, intimidating and/or just plain terrifying…

If you’ve already taken the plunge, and are wondering what you need to do to take your DJ business to the next level…

If you believe that you’re so much more than a Human iPod…

Then this message is specifically for you.


We believe there are two kinds of DJs – Whole-Ass Magic Makers, and well… Half-Assed Jokers.

The real art of DJing isn’t about gear, it’s about atmosphere – and it’s not about showing off, it’s about showing up.

We’ve scaled Mary’s dream from a solo DJ with one crate of hits to a renowned team of 25, covering 700 events per year, and raking in about $2M per year – with every bit of our dignity intact.

Nobody told us how – in fact, we got mountains of horrible advice along the way. We made costly mistakes, and fed our competition’s growth. We didn’t have a roadmap. We would have positively killed for a roadmap! And that’s precisely why the Toast & Jam Lab was born.

The Toast & Jam Lab is for DJs who know how to get a raging dance floor going and want their bank accounts to sing.

Your Investment

The average wedding costs over $35,000, and on average, the DJ gets about 5 percent of that budget. (And many couples are willing to shell out a lot more than that for their big day because they know the DJ makes or breaks their reception.)

The Toast & Jam Lab gives you everything you need to charge premium prices for your amazing DJ services.

Lifetime Access to the The Toast & Jam Lab & 12 Monthly Calls can be yours right this minute for 3 payments of $500 or a one-time payment of $1250.

Why DJs Serious About Building Empires Are Raving....

“My business simply wouldn't exist in its current state, maybe not at all, if it weren't for Mary Nisi.

Her experience and confidence as an entrepreneur is infectious, and she immediately encouraged me to pursue launching the business when it was only a vague idea. We went from conversation to casual brainstorming to strategic working session to launch party in a very short period of time. Mary makes launching and running a business look easy and fun, and her votes of confidence in my abilities and potential were so matter-of-fact, moving forward just felt like common sense.

Mary's innate creative genius and wit had a huge part in my business! She knows how to capture personalities into a concise brand package.

With a straightforward series of intelligent questions and active exercises in prioritization and pricing, Mary took the fear and confusion out of defining my initial offerings and cost structure packages. They have evolved since day one, and will inevitably continue to change, but she helped me get my business off the ground with smart, clear ways to engage new clients.

Mary is a force of nature, a truly unique combination of talents, and pure joy to be around.”
