I've known Jason for 30 years and that was enough for me to trust him when it came to mine and my wife's wedding day. I knew he'd take care of us the way we wanted. What I (and my wife) didn't know was just how much we needed Jason. He is truly...
a master at his craft. He knows when to get the party going, and when to calm things down. He knows what the timelines should look like and gives you helpful advice on this subject. Most of all, he makes it personal. On a wedding day, this is so important; and Jason makes you feel like you're the only couple that's ever been married.
From a personal standpoint, I can't say enough about my friend. From a professional standpoint, he's worth every penny! Out of 10, he's an easy 100!

We were absolutely thrilled with how awesome of a DJ/MC Jason was! He had great music for pre-ceremony, he was on cue for everyone walking down the aisle and had an amazing tiny microphone for our ceremony/vows that allowed everyone to hear us ...
(200+ people outside) without holding a mic! He supplied cocktail hour music when needed (we also had live music during this time) and really got the crowd hyped and excited for our intros! He was on point for speech intros and first dances and keep our dance floor PACKED all night with music we both love and we are picky! He felt the crowd for good moments for cake cutting and bouquet toss checking in with us as well, so it flowed nicely. He let my (now husband) sing for the crowd after a guest request and generally all around was SO fun and flexible and wonderful to work with!! If you want a DJ/MC that brings the party, is fun, keeps your guests dancing all night, is not cheesy, genuinely nice and wants you to have a great time do not hesitate to book Jason! From our initial call, to meeting in person, to wedding day he was prompt, helpful and you can tell he is a pro and the best at what he does. Plus he sent us a sweet gift after which was so thoughtful and meaningful to us. Don't let this vendor book your date with someone else, reach out to Jason asap!

We provided a small list of song requests for our reception, but every additional song he played we LOVED and the flow of the night was perfectly executed. Jason is GREAT at what he does and our wedding would not have been as incredible without him at the mic! Thanks again, Jason!

Jason at SCSM is absolutely wonderful! From our first conversation with him, we knew we made the right choice; he was kind and responsive and anticipated any possible question we could have had. Later, we had a phone call with him about 1 month...
before the wedding as we live out of the area now, and he helped us prepare the timeline for the wedding evening and reviewed our music selections. He appreciated our musical taste and the vibe we wanted to create to both represent us as a couple as well as entertain our guests all evening. The dance floor was alive from the moment dinner ended ’til the lights went on 3+ hours later, playing a wide range of music for our wide range of guests. He very obviously adhered to our requests (even some pop punk for us!) as well as our do-not-plays, so we never had to worry. He made everyone laugh without trying to steal the show throughout the night, gave my nervous sister (MOH) a pep talk before her speech, and just generally made us feel comfortable and taken care of all evening. Not only did he rock it as our DJ, but he officiated for us as well for a very reasonable additional fee, which saved us the hassle of also finding an officiant. We wanted a short and sweet ceremony, and he delivered exactly that, while simultaneously nailing the ceremony music. Afterward, he took care of tracking down signatures and sending in the license. During and after, our wedding guests gave us so much positive feedback on Jason! He’s so professional, personable, and just all-around excellent at what he does. Cannot recommend him enough! Thank you, Jason!

My husband and I could not be more grateful we hired Jason as our wedding DJ. He is AMAZING!!! He isn't any ole' DJ that hits "play" on a playlist and sits back all night- he will engage your guests and make CERTAIN they're enjoying themselves....
There is no such thing as a lame wedding with Jason as your DJ. My husband and I received countless compliments about Jason both at the wedding and after- he's THAT good. It's extremely apparent Jason cares about his clients and does everything he can to make their day unforgettable, and he did just that for my husband and I. 1000 times, thank you Jason! Cannot recommend Salt City Sound Machine enough!

he plays. I danced the entire night along with many other guests at our wedding. When we were lined up for introductions I kept hearing the crowd cheering.

Thank you for making our day so special and fun!!!

ng. SCSM was one of the first vendors we booked based on all of his positive reviews. We liked that he had a contract, a list of popular song ideas for specific events such as cake cutting, last dance, etc.
Jason was honest, professional and was punctual with keeping our whole day flowing from ceremony music to first dance and getting the party started after dinner was served.
We described many specific song requests to please our family such as a sing-along song or just inside jokes for the Groomsmen entrance--and he not only made them happen, but timed them perfectly!
We loved the little extra touches like a shout-out on his Facebook of a great shot he took of our ceremony and loved being able to share with our guests how happy we were to have Jason on our team as we tied the knot. He was the perfect DJ for our wedding day!

Jason was so wonderful and accommodating throughout our entire planning process. He had DJed my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding back in 2017, and we knew from that moment that he would provide the best party we could ask for. He exceeded ou...
r expectations!! My fiancé and I were in a unique situation given we were living apart and planning our wedding away from our venue in the Poconos. Not only was Jason willing to travel 2.5 hours for the wedding, he was also kind enough to hop on a video call several weeks out to discuss our song list and finalize any last-minute details. Beyond just music, Jason provided great entertainment throughout the night, including fun bridal party introductions, and turned his DJ table into a request board complete with our wedding hashtag.
We have Jason to thank for one of the most standout memories of the entire day. He had a list of selected song moments we could plan for during the reception, including a “Generations Dance” which we had never heard of before. He explained that for this song, all married couples would join the dance floor and one by one peel off until only the couple who had been married the longest remained. This was such a hit with our families that Jason had to play 3+ songs to keep it going! We had almost a dozen couples married 40+ years and the last couple remaining was about to celebrate their 64th anniversary. Everyone applauded and was close to tears. It was such a beautiful moment and a celebration of marriage beyond our own that day. It was an incredible addition to our wedding, and one we have Jason’s creativity and wedding expertise to thank!
Toward the end of the night, our family surprised us by extending our reception an extra hour. Without hesitation, Jason agreed to stay, and thank goodness he did because the party was still ramping up! By the time he announced the party would keep going, ties were coming off and the limbo line was forming. Jason kept the energy up and the dance floor full the entire night, all while playing our complete wish list of songs and surprising us with other great hits - including the Eagles chant requested by some Philly family members which the PA guests all loved!
If you are an engaged couple getting married in Upstate NY or the surrounding area, I highly recommend choosing Salt City Sound Machine! Jason is talented, hard-working, a great guy and a pleasure to work with. After the wedding, Jason also sent us a copy of our wedding CD with all our selected song moments photo printed with a picture of us from our wedding day! Thank you Jason for helping to make our wedding day the best party of our lives!!!

omeone who was going to be a delight to work with. Every single time we spoke, he was friendly and accommodating, but also helped guide us to a better overall wedding. Jason clearly has the experience to know the appropriate time frames necessary for each beat of the night to work in the most effective manner, and took the time to explain each of those beats to us.
We had a meeting with Jason before the event where we explained to him what we did and did not want our reception to sound like. Fast forward to the day of the event, and he followed our guidelines perfectly. There was not a single song that I thought, "Why is he playing this song?". He heard what we wanted and made the perfect song choices. He had a great sense of what would get the crowd up and moving, and when the key times to throw a slow song in were. I received many compliments on how great the music was.
Finally, Jason is clearly just a fun and nice guy. We had a great time talking to him every time leading up to the wedding, and he was funny and charming to all of our guests. We were initially hesitant about the idea of having a wedding DJ, but Salt City Sound Machine was worth every penny.
