In 1997, DJ Sammy Jo took his first steps into a DJ booth at the legendary New York City nightclub MOTHER (home to the infamous Jackie 60 party) for his first ever nightlife venture called Messy. Expanding his play-list to include current dance music, Sammy Jo was eventually recruited to play at the original cyberfetish party Click + Drag where he met and collaborated with Jake Shears of the soon-to-be-formed Scissor Sisters. As neighbours and like-minded artists, the two discovered a common passion for all types of music. In the spring of 2004 Shears asked Sammy Jo to DJ on the Scissor Sisters Crevice Canyon Tour, a union that worked so well the band recruited him as their official tour DJ. Since then Sammy Jo has been playing clubs throughout Europe on his own - creating a name for himself while also supporting the Scissor Sisters whenever they call on him. Sammy Jo’s unique style of blending electro, house, and dark disco has gained him a strong worldwide client base.
He spends half his year travelling the globe - from the O2 Arena stadium in London to club RAZZMATAZZ in Barcelona, from LaMESSA afterhours events in Milan to warehouse parties in Antwerp, playing for 60,000 people at V Festival - while the other half he maintains residencies in New York City.
