About Us

Jonathan Paduano President of Paduano Studios
As a college student, my two focuses were on being a music teacher and a saxophonist in a band. It wasn't until I was accidentally sold as a DJ to a client that my story begins. I had to learn everything about what it is to be a DJ in a matter of months, and spent countless hours trying to pick the brains of people I knew who were DJ'ing. And once I played that final song at my first DJ'd event, Paduano Studios was founded!

When I first began Paduano Studios in 2010, we performed the way most DJs did: one planning meeting before the celebration, same old playlists, same old lighting setups, same old dances, same old everything! I knew there had to be something more in regards to providing exceptional entertainment for both couples and clients looking to celebrate an occasion.

With the help of some amazing friends and family members - and the internet -, I found my passion for weddings and events, and in turn have grown Paduano Studios into a full-time wedding and event services company in Syracuse, NY and the Central New York region.

Looking back, it's funny to think of the "same old same old." Have you ever been to a wedding or event and felt like you’d seen it before? That won’t happen with us at the helm of your event. Why? Because we’re tired of the boring event too.
