Meet Your DJ

Hey there! My name is Jason Paussa and I am proud to be the owner and DJ for Salt City Sound Machine.

I was born and raised in the Syracuse area and began DJing in Central New York in 2007 under the tutelage of Kevin Surrette and Holly Berlin of Singers Karaoke Club. In 2012, I took my knowledge and experience to form Salt City Sound Machine and started the crazy ride that is owning your own DJ company. Although I specialize in weddings, I’ve been afforded the opportunity to also DJ birthday parties, proms, corporate events, holiday parties, sorority parties, sweet 16’s, and clambakes. I’ve DJed in virtually every venue in Central New York, in cities around New York State including Alexandria Bay, Buffalo, Saratoga Springs, and Rhinecliff, and even went National by DJing weddings in Massachusetts and North Carolina. In addition, I’ve had the privilege of winning local awards on both local and national levels (2014, 2015 Best Wedding DJ/Band – Syracuse New Times, 2015 Couples Choice Award – Wedding Wire)

I do this because I genuinely enjoy doing it. I love to entertain and see the smiles on the faces of my clients as their event becomes a time that no one will forget. I have a deep love, knowledge, and respect of music across all genres that grants me the ability to transcend generations and find music that everyone will enjoy. I feed off of the energy of a crowded dance floor and it inspires me to provide a environment of non-stop excitement that will only result in sore feet and lasting memories.

When I’m not DJing, I’m spending my time with my wife Sarah and my daughter Avery, both who find new ways to inspire me every day.
