Salt City Sound Machine is an events DJ company servicing Central New York, its surrounding areas, and beyond. We are committed to providing high quality entertainment and service for our clients while keeping prices affordable.

Keep It Simple

Our philosophy is very easy: Keep It Simple. We believe in providing quality DJ services for affordable prices. We like to take things back to basics by focusing more on entertaining with great music that our customers want to hear, rather than on lasers and lighting gimmicks. Remember, a great DJ could make or break your event. Not just by playing music... anyone can do that.. but by providing a hands-on approach in customizing and organizing your event to ensure the satisfaction of our clients and their guests. We will do our best to make sure that your guests are talking about how much fun they had at your event, not days and weeks, but months and even years after it's over. That's the right way to DJ. That's the Salt City Sound Machine way.


We at Salt City Sound Machine believe that customization is the key to making sure your event will be memorable. The more customized you make your event, the more memorable it will be. We want to play the music that you like. You are the client, therefore, You are the boss. We encourage requests while at the same time adhering very strictly to do-not-play lists. For our wedding clients, we provide a very detailed Customer Music Selection packet for the couple to choose the songs for some of the more specific moments of the wedding, such as the First Dance or Parents Dances. All in all, we will do our very best to make sure that the music we play at your event is the music you want to hear. We'll go the extra mile to give your event that personal touch that you won't find anywhere else.


Salt City Sound Machine believes that quality organization is the key to a successful event. Events are very combustible by nature and choosing a DJ who organizes well is vital to making sure your event flourishes. Salt City Sound Machine has you covered. By participating in face-to-face meetings, we will create schedules and timelines to make sure every detail of your event is covered. In addition, if your venue has an event coordinator, we'd be happy to work alongside them and all other wedding vendors to ensure that all parties on the same page when it comes to the schedule of your event. We are committed to doing our best to provide our clients with a worry-free experience

Jason was an asset to our reception! He stood out when browsing vendors online thanks to his experience and professionalism - he more than lived up to what we expected by getting to know our tastes in music and the environment we wanted to create at our reception. He skillfully balanced varying themes, energy levels, and guest requests while fitting in our "must haves". Highly recommended for a worry-free, fun, and professional music service!

We are so happy that we chose Jason for our wedding! He was so organized, easy to work with, and on top of things- we didn't have to worry about anything. He also was flexible when we wanted to change some things at the last minute. We really wanted to get everyone out on the dance floor, and Jason definitely accomplished that! He did a great job reading the room and also understanding what we wanted for our reception.

I absolutely LOVE working with Jason! I have worked 2 weddings with him so far and is always a blast! If you're looking for your DJ to get the party going and even dance with you, JASON IS THE MAN! Highly recommend!

It is always a treat to get to work with Jason for receptions. As a wedding photographer, it is so important to have a DJ that knows how to organized couples and bridal parties during the reception, as well as get the part going and the music flowing in order for me to capture great moments. Jason does all this, and so much more! In addition to being extremely good people management, Jason has an amazing personality and fun-going nature that is sure to put a smile on all of the guests faces. I highly recommend Jason to any couple searching for that perfect DJ.
