One of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process was hiring you as our DJ! ... Throughout the planning we also decided to use their services for the backdrop, and photo-booth!! They helped us along throughout our planning process, and helped make several huge decisions, including having Jeff come out in his RCMP uniform as a big surprise for all our guests (one of the most talked about surprises too!). They are so easy to talk to, and the services are amazing. We loved the online request option, our music was perfect. The backdrop was absolutely beautiful and made our pictures sparkle (literally). The photo booth was also one of the funnest things of the night! The pictures are great!! I would highly recommend homemade jam!! :) Amanda and Jeff Peat ~ September 27th, 2014 ~ Pinestone Resort, Haliburton
5 Stars Across the Board!!
I had Terry and Gerry come to my high schools prom on June 24th 2014! Let me say that their photo booth services went above and beyond my expectations! Terry and Gerry provided an abundance of fun, unique props that made the photos even more spectacular! The quality of the photos are amazing and it was a bonus that they printed out so quickly after the pictures were taken. Both Terry and Gerry were very nice and welcoming to deal with - everyone who attended prom had nothing but good words to say about their kindness.They are also very organized and flexible in the months that build up to the event, which made the process stress free and very easy! I would hire this company again in a heart beat as they were nothing less than AWESOME! If you hire them for your event you will not be disappointed with the results! They deserve 5 STARS across the board! :) :)
They were better than I could have imagined!!
Terry and Gerry are absolutely 5 STAR!!! We hired them to do our backdrop, photo booth, act as MC and of course to handle the music! They were better than I could have imagined!! The music was fantastic! Lighting was stunning.. And the backdrop was out of this world!! I would recommend them to anyone!!! Thank you both so much for making our day perfect!!! Xo
Because of you, our vision for the big day became a reality. Your acumen with music is something to marvel.
When attempting to thank you, Aimee and I do not know where to begin. Planning a wedding can be daunting, and the two of you erased so much of the stress in that process. Because of you, our vision for the big day became a reality. Your acumen with music is something to marvel. We still laugh at the creativity for activities on the dance floor, and the song selection.Your professionalism during the wedding ceremony and strong orating skills Gerri is something to be proud of. We've watched our ceremony on video, and it is truly special. The decorating was what put everything over the top. Our initial fears were literally covered; and from the pictures posted, it is evident how magical the two of you made the reception area (both upstairs and downstairs). Finally, our wedding event was unique in that it spanned the whole weekend. It is not that often you will find a vendor(s) who will become part of it (staying two nights), staying up late hours answering our questions, decorating, etc. We were honored to have you part of the experience. We're forever grateful. And to those potential clients considering Gerri and Terry's services, we have only this to say: "Ladies and gentlemen, this couple is professional, talented, and committed to the cause. If you want the best, look no further. We highly recommend them and will actively forward over any friends or family looking for any of their wedding services." We'll be keeping in touch and checking your website/Facebook page regularly. Thanks again for making our wedding dream come true! Aimee + Michael ~ August 25th, 2012 - Beachwood Resort, Peterborough Ontario
You guys are masters at your profession!
Thank you guys for making our day absolutely perfect. You both went over and beyond our expectations. The day of the wedding you felt just like family. You never hesitated to jump in and help out, it was so thoughtful. You guys are masters at your profession and I would hire you and recommend your services in a heart beat. Thank you for everything and for being apart of our dreams .....that came true. with tons of love and thanks the new, Mr. & Mrs. Bonnet ~ Erin + Rob ~ July 12, 2013 - Bobcaygeon, Ontario
The dance floor was packed all night - people kept saying to us "we'd like to go and get another drink but we don't want to miss any of these great songs"
We could not have asked for more accommodating and professional DJ's. Site tour before hand and multiple phone calls to go over every last detail prior to the wedding to be sure everything went without a hitch. They worked very well with family who sang at our wedding to practice before the ceremony. Nothing was too much to ask. We rented chair covers from Homemade Jam and they fit well, were easy to put on chairs and weren't stained. Photobooth was such a fun experience for us, as well as all our guests. And the music was awesome! The dance floor was packed all night - people kept saying to us "we'd like to go and get another drink but we don't want to miss any of these great songs". We can't thank Terry and Gerri enough for the wonderful job they did and we would recommend their services to anyone. You won't be disappointed. Tori + Jeremy ~ October 6th, 2012 - Bark Lake, Ontario
You guys run a very tight ship and it shows in the extraordinary work you do!
Me and Joey want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You honestly did such an amazing job, and everyone commented on how awesome you were! There was not one thing I would change! You guys run a very tight ship and it shows in the extraordinary work you do! Your amazing service, personal effort support and touches will never be forgotten! Again we want to thank you soo soooo much !! I don't know why anyone would ever go somewhere else! Thank you! Dana + Joey ~ August 31, 2012 - Occasions By The Bay, Belleville
The music was awesome, I don't think I seen the dance floor empty all night,
I would like to thank you both for all that you have done to make this wedding as special as it was. The back drop was so beautiful and well worth the money, You did a great job in everything you did for this wedding. The music was awesome, I don't think I seen the dance floor empty all night, I have not danced so much in the last 13 years, I had a great time, and so did everyone elese. You both did an amazing job, you two work well together. I would have no problems referring you two to anyone, so feel free to give my e-mail address for recomendations. Thank you again.

I must say you guys are top notch in comparison
I have been meaning to email you and let you know how great the lights looked and how much our guests and ourselves loved the photobooth. I was recently at a wedding dance and they had a photobooth I must say you guys are top notch in comparison:) There was only allowed 5 people at a time and somehow their heads were always cut off! I had a few comments from guests who were at our wedding that were there, about how much more they enjoyed our photobooth and the attendants. Just wanted to pass that along. We really appreciated everything you did and you will definitely come highly recommended by us. Thanks again:) Melissa + Chris ~ February 9th, 2013 - Lions Club, Cobourg Ontario
One of our best wedding day decisions was deciding on Gerri and Terry as our DJs!
As with the planning of any event, you are bound to run in to issues. There are going to be things that happen beyond your control and things you couldn't have predicted, even with a crystal ball. I didn't encounter many issues along the way, but when I did, even if they had nothing to do with what a DJ would normally do, Terry would have some sort of solution. Our wedding reception was every we dreamed it would be and more. Our guests are constantly telling us our reception was one of the best EVER. One of our best wedding day decisions was deciding on Jerri and Terry as our DJ. Not only did they do a great job with our reception, but a late notice, our ceremony music as well. Tammy + Todd, September 22, 2012 Italo Canadian Club - Kingston, Ontario
They know what they are doing and do it amazingly, at the end of it all they became one of the family!
Terry and Gerri Humphries are the total package,we had a very unique wedding theme, ( Hillbilly/ Redneck ) Gerri preformed as our officiant at our wedding and was very flexable with our wishes and requests and was up for anything we asked of him and he did not disappoint us at all, he was amazing!!! Terry was our wedding planner and she was just as amazing, very organized, open and had awesome suggestions, advice and idea's and as our D.J's & MC of our ceremony, dinner and reception they were awesome, like I said they are the total package. They are very professional, organized, knowledgeable, and full of fun, they know what they are doing and do it amazingly, at the end of it all they became one of the family. We would highly recommend them to everyone. I know if anyone of our friends or family need them I will be booking them again. Donna +Martin ~ Family Estate - Bailiboro, Ontario
The lighting was fabulous and the monogram lighting was so beautiful and added so much to the elegance of the room!
Terry and Gerri were amazing! Our dance floor was packed the entire night and they were great at judging the crowd to keep the party going. The pre-wedding planner for the reception was very detailed and it ensured that nothing important was left out. The lighting was fabulous and the monogram lighting was so beautiful and added so much to the elegance of the room! We would highly recommend Terry and Gerri to anyone who wants to have a smoothe an fabulous night! Jordan + Allie ~ July 7th, 2012 - Parkway Banquet Hall
They kept us all dancing throughout the whole evening; everyone loved the upbeat music and that there was such a large variety - something for all age groups!
My husband and I were married on June 16th, 2012. Terry and Gerri of Homemade Jam! did an absolutely amazing job. They are both extremely professional and well organized. The service they provided was way more than your average DJ service. Terry used her wedding planning skills to make sure everything ran smoothly; we had two meetings prior to the event to make sure we were all on the same page, on top of the rehearsal itself. Gerri was our officiant, and made the ceremony lovely; he was very well spoken and sincere. They both did an incredible job at the reception. They kept us all dancing throughout the whole evening; everyone loved the upbeat music and that there was such a large variety - something for all age groups. We only get one wedding, and we were both so happy to have Terry and Gerri there to help us celebrate our special day. Caitlin + Jason ~ June 16th, 2012 - Kawartha Golf and Country Club
Our guests had a great time dancing all night long with HOMEMADE JAM! 100% recommendation! You WILL NOT be disappointed. Thank you Terry and Gerri!
What an AMAZING DJ service. If your looking for professional and reliable DJs Terry and Gerri are it! We had them travel to Muskoka for our September wedding. From the moment they arrived they were on top of everything. The rehearsal ran very smoothly and was so beautifully organized down to every little detail. Gerri was our officiant for our outdoor ceremony and Terry was a perfect MC!! She knew exactly what was going on and when. The speeches and music were clear and perfect. We had so many people come up to us the next day with many compliments on our DJ!... Our guests had a great time dancing all night long with HOMEMADE JAM! 100% recommendation! You WILL NOT be disappointed. Thank you Terry and Gerri!
I don't know what we would have done without you!
Thank you sooooooooo much for doing an amzing job at our wedding!!! It was honestly the best music ever!! We had so many compliments about how great you were and we are soooo happy with the whole night. You really made our day amazing and we are forever indebted to you!!!!! I don't think there was a song we didn't like, or the crowd didn't love. You were so in tune with our guests and we have gotten so many compliments about how fun you are! You also went above and beyond the call of duty. Our hall almost burnt down and we didn't even know! You were all over the crisis control and we thank you so much for this!! The center piece catastrophe is hysterical looking back on it now and we thank you for helping the staff air out the room and get things under control!! hahaha Honestly, I don't know what we would have done without you! The MC's said you were all over it and made sure everything was taken care of!! You completely out did yourself and I am sorry your husband was sick. Your assistant was so nice!!!! You found a great replacement. I am recommending you all over the place. You are great people and I loved working with you!!! If you ever need a reference, just give them my number and I will back you 100%. You made our wedding amazing, thank you sooooo much!!! Kerri and Peter - October 03, 2009 - Peterborough Golf and Country Club
You really knew how to read the crowd!
We want to tell you just how happy we were with your music at the wedding !!! It was amazing time and you really knew how to read the crowd! There wasn't one thing I would have changed!! We have had nothing but good words about the music and we will be sure to spread the word for future events! Amazing!!! You are very professional!! Thanks again!!

Katie and Joe - September 26, 2009 - Peterborough Naval Club
From our first dance right through to the last, it was an evening of fun, playing the music that kept everyone dancing, some people just never stopped dancing!
Joe and I really wanted to host a celebration of our lives with our families and friends. Our wedding music is so important to having a special service and a great party. We had a tough time finding a DJ service for our wedding. I asked around, called people I was referred to, I searched the web and local phone book. I could reach some by phone, but most never even followed up. I tried emails and many never got back to me at all or weeks later. I was discouraged and started to look outside of our "home town". When I found Homemade Jam DJ! they replied immediately, allowed me to view the full web site, the services page and answered all the questions and concerns I had. With the economy taking a dive we started to worry about the pricing. It was an issue. So we started again to try to find a DJ who we could be happy with. After further calls, to some nice but clearly scattered DJs and unanswered emails Joe and I decided to contact Homemade Jam DJ! again and see if they still had our date available. Lucky us they still did. Terry and Gerri offered to meet with us in person to relieve some of our worries and concerns. Are we ever glad we took them up on the offer. My Joe can be a stickler. He flat out asked "what makes you worth the hundreds of dollars more than the others?" Here's what we got...the support , professionalism the personal touches and the service provided, for the choice of music, the choice in what elements we wanted included and ones we did not, help with the details at the wedding site, the meeting for the final decisions about placing and room layout, at the rehearsal( the day before) AND the music before the actual ceremony, during and after our service and reception, the quality, sound and reliability of the equipment ( the back up equipment if needed ) was super. At the end of our wedding night Terry asked "So what was the difference between us and a cheaper DJ?" and I said as Joe and I where walking out the door with a huge grin, "the difference is the best friggin party ever!!" They followed through with every detail we wanted and provided the greatest music! From our first dance right through to the last, it was an evening of fun, playing the music that kept everyone dancing, some people just never stopped dancing! (even Oma and Grammy ages 85+) Thanks So much for making our special day one for the family history books. !!! All the best to you both and to all the couples who are celebrating in the future. Sincerely, Cathy + Joe - April 18, 2009, Kingston Yacht Club

We had a fantastic time and so did our guests!
I wanted to thank you and Gerri for doing such a fabulous job as our DJs (you were awesome!!) and for your help making everything run so smoothly. The night was unbelievable and went by far too quickly, but we had a fantastic time and so did our guests. We are still receiving compliments on how great the music and DJ's were. Thank you so much for making our day even more special. I feel very lucky that we found you and I wish you the best with your future events. Best wishes, Karyn and Michael - August 16, 2008 - Family Estate, Frankford
Thanks Homemade Jam for the wonderful night!
Homemade Jam's service was excellent and the process was certainly the easiest of all our planning once they became involved. Very helpful and wouldn't hesitate to Homemade Jam for other events. Certainly have been to receptions were OTHER DJ services had been very poor and reflected on the entire evening....you get what you pay for. Don't take the chance on such a special event get the "half the price guy" you will regret it!! Thanks Homemade Jam for the wonderful night.
The dance floor was packed all night!
Thank you very much for a wonderful day and a very fun evening. It seemed that everyone enjoyed themselves, considering the dance floor was packed all night I think that was a great sign. Bryan and I appreciate all your hard work, and I know that the conditions weren't perfect, the very water logged lawn. I had the wedding of my dreams and you were a huge help coordinating everything, I don't know what I would have done without you. I was wondering if it is too late to request the planners as we would like to have them as a keepsake. Thanks again for amazing job that you and Gerri did, Bryan and Carrie - June 21, 2008 - Bryan and Carrie's - Buckhorn Cottage
You guys helped make it all the more perfect!
You guys were great and I didn't expect anything less. Fun, knowledgeable, versatile and accommodating in every aspect. The guests and ourselves had a blast. And last but not least we are very happy that you were part of our amazing wedding day and you guys helped make it all the more perfect. Jason and Katie - October 18, 2008 - Elmhirst Resort
You helped ease a lot of stress !
You were amazing! The service you provided was completely invaluable! My wedding would not have been what it was without your services. Not only did you provide excellent music and keep the dance floor hopping all night, you went above and beyond by helping to coordinate the wedding party down the aisle, making sure everything was running on time and giving me mini status updates, checking with the kitchen etc. You helped ease a lot of stress that I thought I would have. I don't know how I could ever thank you enough. Melanie and Ron - May 02, 2009 - Lindsay Armouries
The whole night was amazing!
We wanted to thank you for everything the day of the wedding. The whole night was amazing, and the music was great! We had many complements on the DJ and how great you were for taking requests and playing good music. Terry, meeting with you the day before the wedding was a great idea. It really made us realize how much you cared about having the day run smooth, and making sure that a lot of the pressure was taken from us. You did an amazing job teeing up events throughout the night, and for that we thank you. We've been to weddings before where the DJ just sits in his corner and plays music. Homemade Jam was the total opposite of that, and is the reason why we highly recommend you guys to friends and family. Thanks again for everything! Russell and Cindy - September 16, 2006 - Parkway Banquet Hall
Our guests are still talking about how amazing our wedding was!
We hope that you are both doing well. We will give as many references and referrals for Homemade Jam and Gerri's officiating for All Season's Weddings. I have already responded to two e-mails recently and gave you an A+ rating. I was completly honest with them and told them that by hiring Homemade Jam they would have the best DJ company in the country. You both made our wedding day the best that it could be, we could not have done it without your immense help and entertainment. Our guests are still talking about how amazing our wedding was. The inside joke with us and our friends that attended that are getting married in the near future, is that they are all frustrated because we set the bar so high for them to compete with. They all wish that they could hire your company for their weddings here around Vancouver. Take care and best wishes. Dean and Jenna Robbins - July 26, 2008 - Family Cottage, Mississauga Lake
