Aria Melody DJ is a refreshingly different kind of company - the alternative to the cheesy DJ.

As a wedding guest himself, John Sinclair strives to get right what so many DJs get wrong. He constantly monitors the volume, honors all "must play" and "do not play" lists, pronounces all names correctly and doesn't play your typical, overplayed music.

No lights. No fog. No blow-up instruments. No excessive talking on the microphone.

Aria Melody DJ believes music can be fun but professional, tasteful and without gimmicks.

And of course, you'll have complete creative control over your playlist.

We're rated 5-stars by Wedding Wire, Project Wedding and Yelp.com users and a favorite of couples and wedding planners alike.


Please visit our website @ | www.ariamelody.com & if our approach matches your taste, we look forward to hearing from you.

No pressure. Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
The anti-cheesy wedding DJ: no lights, no fog, no blow-up saxophones, no ponytail, no drinking, no taking breaks, names pronounced correctly, volume set at an appropriate level, the dance floor packed. I prefer to stay in the background to ensure the music is seamless -- its your wedding day, the DJ shouldn't be the center of attention.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
You'll have complete creative control over your playlist. Some clients select all the music to be played; some just a few songs. And of course, we'll discuss how you would like requests to be handled.
What is your usual attire?
I prefer to blend in as a guest: dark suit, tasteful shirt & tie. I vowed to never be the DJ in a glittery tux or collarless shirt.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Only if it's a unique version. I'll research all music before your wedding day.
How many other DJs do you work with?
You'll meet with John Sinclair and he'll be your DJ/MC on the day of your wedding. We have a comprehensive contingency plan in case of an emergency (one that we've never, ever used).
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
We book dates on a four-hour minimum.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes. And we prefer to do this for each & every booking.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We don't claim expertise in any one international genre; we've done Jewish, Greek, Serbian, Liberian, Italian, Spanish, Irish, German and Bosnian weddings.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely! Sometimes the best place to start is writing out your "do-not-play" list. Generally, our "do-not-play" list contains any sort of line dance (Macarena, The Chicken Dance, YMCA), and what we call "typical" wedding music: It's Raining Men, Funkytown, The Twist, Mony Mony, etc.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes. We only use professional DJ equipment: Mackie 450 speakers, Denon CD Players and Sennheiser Wireless microphones.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
None. No lights. No fog. No blow-up instruments. We promise.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
Approximately 60-90 minutes. We require a table & access to electrical outlet, which we'll coordinate with your venue.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Never. We do not hang any signage or pass out business cards. We won't even say our company name during your event.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
All speaking on the microphone is professional, tasteful and kept to a minimum (as specified by you).
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Music is the best motivator. We have excellent judgement and know what and when to play to motivate your guests.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
No breaks. No meals. No alcohol. No smoking. No hitting on bridesmaids.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
We book 3-4 weddings a month maximum so each and every couple gets the customized, personal service they expect.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
There are no additional charges once quoted a rate.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
30% of the total amount.

Rob was absolutely the greatest wedding DJ... he took EVERY request my husband and I made before the wedding and wove it in with his own awesome song ideas perfectly. The parents and "the kids" had an amazing time thanks to him-- it was perfectly balanced.

We had a lot of concern about the volume of music during dinner (parents were very concerned they wouldn't be able to hear themselves talk!). Rob was able to make a very chill vibe that everyone appreciated and enjoyed.

Thank you so much for making our wedding so much fun!

Aria Melody was an amazing DJ. John is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. He helped us arrange everything with our DJ Joe. Joe was 100% on point all evening. He played great music at the all the right times and kept flow of the wedding going perfectly. He was great to work with and got to know our music taste and what we wanted the feel of the wedding to be like. We received many compliments about Joe and how great of a DJ he was. Everyone was saying that they have never been to a wedding where people danced so much for almost the entire wedding. I highly recommend them.

My husband and I were very pleased with Owen the DJ from Aria Melody. We had a great time dancing at our wedding! He did exactly what we asked--he kept everyone on the dance floor the entire wedding reception, and made sure to play music that a wide variety of ages enjoyed. He included all of the requests that we gave him in advance, although he could not accommodate some requests from friends and family during the reception itself (our only knock on an otherwise superb service). We recommend him highly for any event-- he was courteous, professional, easy to work with, and can really read a crowd to keep them enthusiastic.

The first DJ we met with claimed to not be a "cheesy" wedding DJ, but then proceeded to make me feel badly/stupid that we didn't want a MC, lights, bouquet toss, etc. I left that meeting in tears. When we met with John of Aria Melody, I immediately knew we'd found our DJ. He was flexible in terms of scheduling a meeting with our busy work schedules, had amazing music suggestions, and found a way to blend our music tastes (90s grunge for my husband, alt-country for me) during dinner into songs that got EVERYONE on the dance floor.

Aria Melody DJ is an amazing company and our DJ Rob was professional, talented and just an overall pleasure to work with. He catered to all age ranges but stayed within our taste of music. He was able to read the crowd throughout the night and made sure everyone got on the dance floor. No cheesy gimmicks, no line dancing, just great music!

My husband and I chose Aria Melody DJ for our wedding, because we loved their tag line: No Lights, No Fog, No Gimmicks, which is exactly what we wanted and that is exactly who they are. We worked with Owen, who was incredibly responsive, great with providing suggestions and very professional. Owen played the ceremony and the reception and all seemed to flow nicely. There were also a couple points in the evening that we requested a certain song to be played, at an exact time and he nailed it each time. The dance floor seemed to be filled throughout the night, with all different ages, and the positive feedback we received in the following days confirmed, for us, that we made the right decision in hiring Aria Melody for our wedding. I would definitely work with them, again!

We absolutely loved Aria Melody from the moment we contacted them to the end of the wedding! We first met with John in person and went over what our thoughts were for the wedding music. He was flexible from the very beginning as we were still debating whether to have a DJ or live music for the cocktail hour. We ended up going with the live music and they were very flexible with accommodating that in the schedule. Prior to the wedding, John told us that due to his other work that he was unable to play at the wedding but assured us that Owen would be just as great (Owen actually DJ'd for John's wedding). We spoke with Owen and were just as comfortable with him as we were with John. After sending our thoughts on dinner music and dance music, Owen ensured music was great for all ages and kept the dance floor going all night. He play our must haves and we trusted him fully to pump up the party (as he is the expert in this area so we didn't want to interfere much). Great professionalism and most of all everyone had a BLAST! Thank you John and Owen from Aria Melody for making our night so special and memorable!

Talk about a DANCE PARTY!! From the moment we walked in through the doors the WHOLE ENTIRE wedding was dancing their asses off! Owen, our DJ for the night listened to every single word we said, and totally made our wedding the party of the year.

We are so thankful to John, who runs the company and Owen, for their vision and listening to our details. I cannot wait to have another party and have them rocking the house again!

We love you!

John was amazing to work with! He responded to all emails very quickly and was very professional. We sent him a list of the types of songs we wanted played and some must plays. He filled in the gaps, and kept the dance floor full all night. And most important to us, there we no gimmicks or cheesy announcements, just great music! Would highly recommend!

We decided on Aria after seeing Owen dj a friends wedding. The music was awesome and we loved that he never made the night about him. So happy we moved forward with him for our own wedding. He had the dance floor packed the entire night and did a flawless job of feeling out the crowd and playing the right music at the right time. If you want great tunes and a professional who understands it's your night, aria is the way to go. He also did the ceremony and cocktail hour - worth every penny!

I always second guess reviews with all 5's but Aria Melody definitely deserves the high ratings. I was contacted quickly by John Sinclair after I left my contact information online. He outlined everything I needed to know regarding Aria's services and was beyond helpful. He took care of all of the administrative duties and made sure I was taken care of up to my wedding date.

Joseph Schimicci DJ'ed my wedding and I cannot say enough great things about Joe. He took the time discuss the vibe I was going for at the wedding, the type of music I liked (and the type of music my groom, and family liked as well) I had some pretty specific requests and Joe was able to deliver on everything I needed. After giving Joe a list of songs he was able to incorporate other songs not on the list that I absolutely loved. I allowed my guests to make requests but one of the songs requested I was not a fan of so while dancing I made eye contact withe Joe and he knew right away to smoothly transition out to the next song. It was pretty cool :). A month later guests were still asking about my venue and my DJ.

I highly, highly recommend Aria Melody and would use them again for any event where I need DJ services.

I had the pleasure to work Owen for my wedding. From our first meeting to the day of the event, he was so easy to work with. My music selections were played, my do not play list was not played..it was awesome! I made changes to playlist along the process and everything was handled effortlessly. Not to mention, my guests were talking about how great the music was well after my event. Great signs of an awesome DJ!

I consider myself kind of a "music" person and he did an absolutely perfect job playing at our reception. Guests gushed over his song choices and the dance party that ensued exceeded our wildest hopes for the night. Thanks so much John and the Aria team!

We had a good feeling about John from the first time we spoke with him. In fact, he made our decision pretty easy, even though he was a bit outside our budget. But in the end, he was definitely worth it. Our biggest criteria was putting people on the dance-floor and he delivered. Professional (easily managed three different set-ups in a challenging venue), attentive, and personable...just about everything we could want from someone who played such a big part on our special day.

We'd recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who wants to feel at ease about their DJ decision.

John from Aria Melody delivered more than we could ever ask for! His professionalism, creativity and attention to detail was outstanding. We knew we didn't want all the gimmicks, smoke, lights and loud DJ announcements and that's exactly what John delivered! People complemented the fact that the music spoke for itself. John was able to take our song ideas and choose the genre's and music we absolutely love....neither us nor our guests left the dance floor all night! His talent for putting together that perfect mix stood out. Our guests haven't stopped telling us how great the music was and what an awesome time they had! And neither can we!! We cannot thank John enough for helping us achieve the environment we dreamt of for our wedding!

John with Aria Melody is exactly who he claims to be....no lights, no gimmicks, no fog...and that is exactly what we wanted for our wedding reception! What we also got was an amazing playlist of music that kept our guests and us on the dance floor all night long! John was extremely professional from the moment we spoke with him on the phone a year before our event and he was very responsive with song selection and music edits leading up to the big day. It was a pleasure working with John, he was friendly, timely and personable. Music selection was a small source of stress for us and John relieved that by giving us the confidence that he would take care of everything and he did! We can't thank John enough for helping create the exact environment we wanted for our wedding day!

Hire Aria Melody! DJ Joe absolutely blew us away and made our wedding. I cannot begin to count the number of guests that told us that he was the best DJ they've ever heard (which means a lot considering how many weddings our friends have been to recently!). From my first conversation with John (the owner) to my final chat with DJ Joe the week of the wedding, Aria was a pleasure to deal with. Prices are fair and DJ Joe was a complete professional (early, responsive had everything he needed, checked in with us and my coordinator). But it really goes beyond that...these guys are real music fans and love sharing in couples' special day. They are so good at what they do. When I explained a few non-traditional things we wanted, DJ Joe's expert opinion on how to work everything in was invaluable. Our plan was not to have any dancing before dinner but I told DJ Joe to see how the crowd was...turns out they were well ready to party and DJ Joe put together a phenomenal set that resulted in my 60+ year old aunt (who is a librarian) TWERKING! Our dance floor was PACKED the entire night. To make things even better, DJ Joe made sure it was "our" wedding and incorporated the random assortment of favorite musicians my husband and I have - including everything from Oasis (and not a remix versions - he followed those directions perfectly!) to a Britney Spears/Gwen Stefani mash-up (my 2 fav ladies...my mind was blown!). We cannot thank DJ Joe and Aria Melody enough for making our wedding the party of a lifetime. Highly, highly recommend these guys!

We cannot thank DJ Joe and Aria Melody enough for making our wedding the party of a lifetime. Highly, highly recommend these guys! Read less

Joe Dunn was our DJ for our wedding on 10/13/13. He was so easy to work with and completely open to all of our ideas. My husband and I were very involved in our song selection for every aspect of the wedding - pre-ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Joe did an amazing job - our friends and family are still talking about how great the music was and how much fun they had. The dance floor was constantly packed and Joe took all of the ideas we had and made them reality. We could not have asked for a better DJ or a better company to work with. John Sinclair was our main contact throughout the process and he was also incredibly responsive and on top of everything. I would recommend them hands down to anyone who is looking for a DJ company that listens to you, avoids all of the corny gimmicks and lets everyone have a great time.

John at Aria Melody DJ is awesome! From the first meeting, to the day of our wedding, John was completely professional, responsive and most importantly- talented. My husband and I gave John a pretty extensive playlist as we both love music and would be damned if our wedding had the usual, overplayed and standard music. John took our requests- played them, and also made his own selections that fit our style and the mood perfectly. He understood what we were going for and surpassed our expectations. There was not a single person seated during the dance portion and our friends and family are still talking about how it was the most fun they've had at a wedding. I should also mention that John was a perfect MC. He provided structure to the evening with simple, non-overbearing announcements and kept things running smoothly. I would highly recommend Aria Melody for any event!

We learned about Aria Melody because Owen was the DJ for our friends' wedding a few years ago, and we had a blast at it. For our wedding, we worked with John, and I can honestly say it was the most stress-free part of planning our event. John was professional, responsive, flexible with meeting times, offered great advice on the selection and timing of our songs, and knew the ins and outs of our venue. My parents ballroom dance and had some unusual song requests that my husband and I were worried would detract from the fun of the party, but John was able to work in all the requests at opportune times while keeping the party going the entire night, so everyone young and old had a great time. I think the most important thing is that working with John, we had 100% peace of mind that everything was going to run smoothly, and it did. I don't know why anyone would choose another company! Aria Melody DJ is awesome.

We had Joe DJ our wedding and he was fantastic! He had everyone dancing all night, including our older family members and all of our friends. He was also super flexible, we ended up changing the whole order of the party during cocktail hour to accommodate my sick grandmother who had to leave early. My dad really wanted her to see our father / daughter dance and we had originally scheduled it to be later in the evening. Anyway, Joe was completely flexible and re-organized the whole night on the spot.
Before the party was over our friends were asking for the DJs info. We've already given it to several people! He's truly amazing!

DJ Owen was absolutely amazing! When we initially started looking for our wedding DJ we did not want someone that was going to be in the middle of the dance floor on the microphone dragging people out of their seats and Aria Melody is the place to go if you are like us. They make your wedding about you and tailor the music to your specific needs and wants. We instantly clicked with Owen at our initial meeting and he fully understood our music taste. He provided the soundtrack to our Cocktail hour, Reception and After Party and all of our family and friends came up to us raving about the music during each part of the night. Thank you Owen for getting all our guests on the dance floor without ever needing to forcefully drag them out there :) We will be back for future events!

For our wedding, we were specifically looking for a DJ who would just play music (good music) and keep the dance party flowing - we didn't want strobe lights, blow-up microphones, or any of that stuff! Aria Melody delivered on our wishes.

Joe was our DJ and we had a great experience with him and with the company, overall. Both he and John were pretty quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and they weren't perplexed by our "minimalist" DJ requirements (as that is basically what they do - the whole "no gimmicks" thing). Several other DJ companies we inquired with offered no less than two-man teams to DJ our wedding (which we thought was unnecessary and only served to drive up the price) and didn't quite understand that we did NOT want to be presented as "bride and groom" accompanied by Jock Jams and a smoke machine.

If you're looking for a DJ that will be easy to work with and play the music you want to hear at your wedding, then we would suggest Aria Melody. Our wedding guests mostly commented on 3 things from our wedding: the food, the MUSIC, and the overall atmosphere (and also my dress - had to throw that one in there) - overall that is an A+ wedding, in our opinion.

Outstanding. Words cannot describe how pleased we are with Rob's work at our wedding. We gave him a few do/do not play-- but let him run the show. All we told them was that we had a wide range of ages and wanted everyone on the dance floor for the majority of the night, and he did just that. The night flew by, and guests raved on how amazing, awesome, insane the music was and how it would flow. The dance floor was packed all night! Amazing job, thank you!!

We had a fantastic experience working with DJ Rob Sicat. Having a DJ with impeccable musical taste was very importance to us and he definitely delivered. We we first met, he clearly articulated his view on DJing ("no ego") and fully understood our taste in music. Over the coming months, he encouraged us to send him ideas and about a month before the wedding he started a Spotify list so we could upload songs to help him get a sense of our taste and our must-haves. We put together a list of specific songs for cocktail, dinner and dancing and Rob stuck to our requests while making sure the entire evening flowed. My only regret is that the dancing portion went too fast! We could've had him DJ for two more hours! If you want a sophisticated DJ will expansive and hip musical tastes, go with Rob!

John and Rob from Aria Melody were amazing. John was always responsive and professional. Everything was straight forward and easy.

Rob worked our wedding. He was responsive, professional, and very knowledgable. He very quickly understood the vibe we were trying to go for. My wife wanted world music for the cocktail hour and Rob did the extra research to find the songs that appealed to her. We trusted him to make the dance playlist. After providing a few examples of songs we like/don't like, he came up with a playlist that was perfect. He required very little input from us. Rob knew how to make a cool, upbeat playlist free of cliches and cheesiness.

Rob read the crowd and kept the dance floor packed. He served as our MC, but talked just the right amount. Also, there was some push back from the venue to do short 10-minute dance sessions in between courses. Rob knew that wouldn't fit the crowd and immediately let me know. We agreed to save the dancing until after the entree and it worked out perfectly.

I couldn't be happier with John, Rob, and Aria Melody. I highly recommend them for any wedding.

Rob did a fantastic job for our wedding, and my wife and I couldn't be happier. Everything from the music selection, to being on top of the changing event timeline of the evening was done seamlessly.

Rob is really a student and lover of music, and knows how the right music / beats / tempo can set the mood for the differing events of the evening. Whether it was getting our guests up and dancing, or calming them down to be seated, the music really was spot on. The music also appealed to everyone from our grandparents to our friends. We closed the venue down and everyone wanted more - all in all a very successful party thanks to Rob!

I cannot speak higher about Aria Melody. We were expecting the hunt for our DJ was going to be long and difficult but after meeting Owen we knew he would be perfect. He immediately was able to understand our music styles. In the months leading up to the wedding we worked very close with Owen on what songs we wanted played (thanks you Spotify!). He was SO GREAT in helping us pick out our specialty songs (ie: ceremony, mother son dance). Also-- John has some killer Spotify playlists which I pretty much listened to daily.

Now for the actual day of! What a success!! Owen blew it out of the park. Everyone was coming up to us during and after the wedding saying how perfect the music was. I swear he's psychic he knew exactly what to play at every moment. I could go on and on and on but just know that Owen and the AM team is fabulous. You will be very happy having them as your wedding entertainment !!

Joe was a really great DJ. We met a few times by phone and he asked lots of questions that helped us, in turn, think about what music was needed and when it should be played. He even asked for the demographics of our guests so that he could play music appreciated by the various generations. (That would never have occurred to me!) We both felt confident that he would do a great job after talking with him.

On the day of, he arrived early to set up and was dressed appropriately for a wedding. He checked in with us about how we wanted to be introduced. His transitions were great -- for the ceremony and during the various segments of the wedding. And we gave him a list of music that reflected our tastes but also gave him the freedom to play what he wanted and he nailed. We would both recommend him highly!

I cannot say enough great things about Aria Melody. They were courteous, professional, and flexible. My wife and I were a bit stretched for time and were not able to pick out as many specific songs as we would have liked, but luckily Owen, our DJ for the evening, was awesome and put together a fantastic mix with just a few band suggestions. I had friends asking if they could get a copy of the playlist it was that good! He kept us going right to the very end and even stayed a little later than he had to. He was also able to recommend a few songs for father/daughter dance, recessional, etc., which was extremely helpful.

Overall, these guys rock. They're a small group, but they treat you well, give you personal attention, and their prices are more than fair.

The opportunity to tailor your own playlists seemed too good to be true. Coming from the UK, our wedding DJs leave a lot to be desired so working with John was a pretty liberating experience. He first sent us a 'musical structure' of the day in which we could add songs as we moved towards the date by email. Then a meeting a few days before the big day to go through all the finer details. He was there early on the day so we had time to have a chat about timing etc and he had everyone doing the e thing on the floor all night even though it was a pretty small wedding. I would definitely recommend!

We wanted a fun wedding without the constant chatter of the dj in the background and that's what we got! We loved Rob from the first interview! He listened to us very carefully and was thoughtful, knowledgeable and understanding about the kinds of music that we wanted. He collaborated with us on the music, providing feedback, thoughts and suggestions. The set up was excellent for our needs and he fully understood the sequence of events at the wedding from start to finish. He was also flexible, adjusting the music and responding to requests on the spot, as well as responding to the mood of the room. Our guests (and staff) loved our wedding, and Rob was a major element in making that happen! We can't thank him enough!

He really listened to what we wanted and made it better. He met us a couple times and made wonderful suggestions, not only about the music but about the flow of the night. He made sure no one was talking too long and people were never bored. I highly recommend Owen.

My review is very belated, but I did want to add a few positive words about our experience with Aria Melody. Owen was so great to work with. He was organized, attentive and created an amazing soundtrack for our day!

We had a unique set up for our wedding and Owen had some really great suggestions for timing. He was also incredibly flexible on the day of and able to quickly adjust on the fly. We wanted our wedding to end with a big sweaty dance party, and our dream came true. Our guests were on the dance floor all night.

Our wedding was the weekend after Hurricane Sandy, so needless to say we had issues with some of our vendors, but NOT the DJ!

Highly recommend.

John was our DJ for our wedding. We had our wedding the Saturday after Hurricane Sandy and John went above and beyond to make sure that he was going to be able to make it to our wedding with all his equipment; and he did! We both had no power the week of the wedding and he STILL made sure he kept me informed.

John played the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Everyone absolutely LOVED the music...and John's suggestions were wonderful and exactly what we were looking for. All our guests said that the ceremony sounded like it was out of a movie and people were on the dance floor all night long!

We could not be happier with John and Aria Melody; we would recommend him to anyone!!!! :)

Love, love, love the wonderful job Owen and Aria Melody DJ did for my wedding. Owen worked with me to create perfect playlists for my ceremony, cocktail hour and reception! People are still talking about the music! Even the staff at the reception was singing along as they were serving dinner! They are worth every penny! Owen was an absolute doll! He was professional, approachable and responsive. I wish i could give them 10 stars.

John of Aria Melody was amazing. Through the whole planning of our wedding, he was nothing but helpful and supportive and didn't put any pressure on us. He coordinated the wedding party to walk down the aisle which he did not need to do but stepped up when he saw there was no direction from other staff. He immediatley got our party going and turned into a all out 5 hour dance party. We had such a good time and his music selections were so relevant and so spot on we added a extra hour when we knew the night was coming to a end. We LOVED working with John, and we recommend him for any style wedding.

Music was such an important part of the wedding for us and John was by far the most easy-going and easy-to-work-with DJ with the best taste in music. Neither of us wanted someone that would make the wedding feel more like a cheesy Sweet16 by constantly talking but rather we wanted someone to feel out our guests and play music to get everyone in the mood for a fun night. John did just that! Everyone commented on his great selections and we had everyone from every age group up and dancing! The best part was his work on our processional, which to me had to be this all-encompassing movie-worthy moment and he timed the music perfectly so that we kissed at the exact right moment and it was beyond perfect! We can't thank John enough and would recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ!

Owen was our DJ for our 8-19 wedding and he was fantastic! He was very responsive and super nice throughout the whole process. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. He did our cocktail hour and reception and he totally listened to our suggestions and requests. He kept the people on the dance floor and there were even boo's when he had to announce that dinner was being served and we needed to be seated! No one wanted to leave the dance floor! We had a great time and I have the blisters on my feet to prove it! I wish I had another event I could book him for! Highly recommend him!

I was so thrilled that we chose Aria Melody as the music for our wedding. Owen was the consummate professional and went above and beyond for our wedding. He made suggestions for songs and the schedule of events. He also remembered all of my personal requests for individual songs, times of the night, and set an amazing atmosphere. EVERYONE was on the dance floor all night long! We have quite the eclectic taste in music and it flowed seamlessly because of Owen. He even took the time to recognize whether a song would be too long and made suggestions for its length before I even thought about it. A few times I recommended the editing of a song and he already had thought of it and done it. It was like he read my mind! He has an ear for music and knows the right songs to play for your atmosphere or crowd. You cannot go wrong with choosing Aria Melody. They are well worth the money because the music makes the wedding, and it was amazing! Thanks so much, Owen.

We loved John's accessibility and his suggestions when it came to picking entrance songs, etc. We enjoyed and appreciated being able to select certain songs and genres, eliminate others and then having John weave all of the music in to one cohesive evening. John did both the music during our ceremony as well as the reception and the transition was seamless. We are fans of Aria Melody and would recommend them to anyone interested in hiring a DJ.

Our experience with Aria Melody and Owen as our DJ could not have been better. We found Aria Melody through recommended vendors on numerous wedding websites and the rest was history. Our initial meeting with Owen was informative, casual, and gave us a real sense of the company's professionalism and attention to our desires. He was able to talk to us about what he envisioned our wedding to be like and help us fill in the gaps we were unsure about. Every email we sent him was quickly responded to, even up to the morning of our wedding when we were still making last minute decisions about music choices.

As for the wedding itself, I have had more people ask about our DJ than any other vendor. The dance floor filled up before the food was served, which is exactly what we wanted, and there was never a lull in the party the whole night. Our wedding was attended by people as young as 20 years old and as old as 87! Everyone complimented the music and Owen was able to determine the right selections for all the different points in the evening.

If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding, do yourself a huge favor and hire Aria Melody.

We met twice before the big day to discuss our music tastes and ideas - he was very helpful in answering questions and accommodating to make things work they way we wanted. On the wedding day the music was perfect - he followed our requests for music as well as improvised to match the mood of the wedding. He also was very attentive to the timeline of the night and made sure everything went smoothly. Words can't describe how great our experience was working with John - 200% recommendation.

Thanks again John for helping make our wedding day amazing!

We could not have asked for anything more from DJ Aria. He played all of the music we requested, in addition to his music that seemed to go perfectly with our crowd. He was extremely professional, and followed through on his promise of no "cheesiness", which was very important to me and my wife! He's a great guy to with work with, very knowledgeable and confident about what he provides, and he definitely backs it up on the day of the event. We never worried once about what to expect from him, which was nice because we had plenty of other things to worry about! We HIGHLY recommend him if you are looking for a DJ.

When I woke up this morning I had so mant texts and emails from guests who said they had such a great time, and that the music and DJ was awesome. The guests danced all night, and my music list was pretty all over the place (my fault), so Owen did a fantastic job of blending all the different genres together and making the entire crowd happy.

We could not have been happier with Owen from Aria Melody DJ! When we first met Owen for coffee to discuss the music for our wedding, we immediately felt like he understood us as a couple. Before getting into specifics, we spent some time getting to know each other and talking about our favorite bands. His laid-back, personable demeanor made us feel like we were hanging out with a friend rather than meeting with a vendor. We had some very specific requests but we were also looking for suggestions, and Owen recommended songs that fit in perfectly with our playlist.

On our wedding day, we were very impressed with Owen’s professionalism and ability to seamlessly transition between each part of our reception. During dinner, he played all of the songs that we had requested and mixed in a few of his own. We were amazed that Owen’s selections were some of our favorite songs! He knew our personal style so well that we could just relax and enjoy the wedding without worrying about the music.

During the dancing portion of the night, Owen did an incredible job blending well known pop songs with some of our more obscure selections. He kept the party going on the dance floor the entire night, and our guests could not stop raving about him. After the wedding, many of our friends told us Owen was “the best DJ they’d ever heard!”

We cannot stress enough how positive our experience was with both Owen and John from Aria Melody DJ. There are many difficult tasks that go along with planning a wedding, but working with Aria is not one of them. Make your life easier and book them NOW!

On our wedding day, we were very impressed with Owen’s professionalism and ability to seamlessly transition between each part of our reception. During dinner, he played all of the songs that we had requested and mixed in a few of his own. We were amazed that Owen’s selections were some of our favorite songs! He knew our personal style so well that we could just relax and enjoy the wedding without worrying about the music.

During the dancing portion of the night, Owen did an incredible job blending well known pop songs with some of our more obscure selections. He kept the party going on the dance floor the entire night, and our guests could not stop raving about him. After the wedding, many of our friends told us Owen was “the best DJ they’d ever heard!”

We cannot stress enough how positive our experience was with both Owen and John from Aria Melody DJ. There are many difficult tasks that go along with planning a wedding, but working with Aria is not one of them. Make your life easier and book them NOW! Read less

Aria Melody is class personified. Very professional. He brings himself and his DJ booth. No inflatable saxaphones or tacky party favors. He caters the whole night to what you want, when you want it. From the time we met him until the time the night was over, John is always responsive to your requests, whether it's a quick email or if you want to meet with him in person to go over pronunciations of names. He has the perfect taste of old and new music, and I guarentee your guests will only be sitting down to eat dinner. I absolutely recommend him, and already have.

Owen was our DJ for our Wedding this past October and we loved him! Before the Wedding both Owen and John were very quick to answer any of our questions, help us find important songs and Owen even helped us gently speed up our First Dance song which we thought was just too slow. During the Wedding his ques were spot on. Its with great confidence that I recommend both Owen and John. They are both great people, with a full arsenal of music in their database that satisfied our guests of varying ages and styles. Aria Melody is professional, responsive, talented, and classy. They are a no stress vender which, when planning my wedding, was very much appreciated. Use them!

Aria Melody was exactly what we were looking for in our wedding DJ. They are amazingly professional, in a friendly easy going way. When we met with Owen, who was our DJ, we just liked him instantly and we knew he was the right guy for the job. Both John and Owen were quick to answer questions not just limited to the music but the overall wedding. Now let's talk about the music- incredible. We are music buffs ourselves so it was important for us to have some of our favorites but also have people on the dance floor. Owen was able to take our list, and fold those in with some of the more popular dance music. Everyone was dancing start to finish! People have kept telling us just how awesome the wedding was and that had a lot to do with the music.

Thank you so much Aria Melody!!

Aria Melody DJ was great! No complaints whatsoever. Not an "emcee" party animal type of DJ, so if you want that, go elsewhere. Aria Melody is classy and elegant - unintrusive - and has an excellent selection of music. Vendor is VERY responsive. Not one email or call I made went unanswered; all responses were prompt and thorough. Would definitely recommend Aria Melody. :)

Owen and Aria Melody DJ were perfect. Owen was professional (look and demeanor) and he took the time to get to know us as a couple so that he was able to understand both our musical tastes and the atmosphere that we wanted to create--then he nailed it. All the guests danced for hours and we had a great time. I think the best thing I could say about this company is that we didn't have to worry about them. Planning a wedding (and the wedding day especially) is very hectic. Finding vendors that you know you can count on and trust is key--Owen/Aria Melody was that vendor for us. Everything one could want in a DJ (unless you want cheese and synchronized dancing).

From the very first meeting with Owen, we knew he was the right DJ for us. We wanted someone who played the music we selected, and only made the announcements we asked him to make - no laser lights or loud invitations to come to the dance floor. Owen did not disappoint.

On top of that, he was incredibly responsive to every question and email, and didn't complain once as we changed the song list right up until the end. His patience and professionalism exceeded our expectations. He even came to a walk through with the caterer, at no extra charge.

We strongly recommend Owen!

He is always quick to respond to emails and calls if you have any questions or concerns. We had a lot of ideas for him and he made everything happen flawlessly. The dance floor was packed the entire night and we received many compliments from our guests on the fun vibe that was created on our big day! If you are looking for a sophisticated, fun and memorable reception John will definitely not disappoint!

John doesn't need lights and fog to make a statement, his ability to keep a party going says it all. The lights went up at our wedding and people were still there-- not wanting to leave--the sign of a great party-- the sign of a GREAT DJ!!

We found all that and more in Aria Melody. Our DJ Owen was incredibly responsive, professional, and knowledgeable...not to mention a general nice guy. He did the music for our ceremony as well as the cocktail hour and reception, and indulged our exacting demands on editing the length and timing of the music to match the number of people in our processional. The music and the transitions and timing were all executed flawlessly. We highly recommend them!

It was very clear to me from the moment he approached us that he genuinely cared about making our day perfect. Additionally , every outlandish and obscure song my friends asked for , he had. Not in any sense your typical bells, whistles, smokescreen kind of DJ.
Definitely recommend. Unbelievable value.

I knew just by looking at the Aria Melody website that John would almost definitely be our DJ. After 30 minutes of sitting down with him, he was the first and last DJ we met with. I wanted exactly what he was promising - none of the cheesiness that almost comes hand in hand with most DJs, the shouting over the songs, the dancing with crowd, the constant announcements - and he delivered just like his tag-line. John was extremely professional, he mixed the list of songs that we gave him with some amazing song choices throughout the night that may as well have been on our list! I was initially a bit worried about the mixing of song genres - but any crossover was totally smooth and perfectly blended. He completely exceeded my expectations - I have never been to a wedding where people are on the dance floor before the first course has even been served! Yes, he's THAT good! He also sticks to the "Do Not Play List" and has a good feel for things that you would shut down even if it's not on the do not play list. Throughout the night we were REALLY thankful for that! If I could give more stars I would because he is EXACTLY what we wanted in a DJ. John is completely tasteful, professional, and he will work with you or help you if you have any trouble with song choices. For us, the music is what really makes the wedding, so this vendor was the most important to us. Aria Melody DJ could not possibly disappoint you. John is amazing and you can tell just by talking to him that he has an extensive music catalog not only on his computer, but in his head. Thanks for making our wedding, John!

John is the best! Of all our vendors, he was the most organized and quick to respond to every email of ours. He spent a very long time trying to help me find a specific type of music for our introduction and it was perfect. We got exactly what we wanted...a great party that had the dance floor full, with music we either picked or within the styles we told John we liked. He had a great feel for timing and the flow of songs were spot on.

If you want a DJ that is running the show instead of trying to be in the middle of it, John is who you want. No excess talking, no self promoting during your event, and very professional. So much so that a bridesmaid already recommended John to her brother in law!

John, many thanks for a day that ended way too soon and best wishes for your own wedding to be just as perfect as you helped make ours!

John was wonderful from the moment we met with him. He was professional, friendly and was very easy to work with.We loved the idea that we both shared the "nothing cheesy" mindset as in no unnecessary talking/announcements, line dances and loved his music suggestions. He played everything, Motown, Hip hop, indie rock, pop and was great with helping us choose the right music.
He was helpful,accommodating, and easy to get in contact with until the very last minute of the wedding which was great because I am soooo indecisive.
All in all we loved having John as our DJ, the music was great, EVERYONE had a blast, and our wedding was perfect.

John did an awesome job at our wedding. He was 110% professional but laid-back and fun; played all the music we wanted to hear; and we heard from both my parents and best man alike that it was the best wedding music they'd ever heard. We definitely appreciate how detail-oriented he was throughout and we just had an incredible time dancing the night away. We would definitely recommend him to friends getting married in the area in the future.

All the best,

We absolutely LOVED Aria Melody. John was so great to work with--he listened to us, gave great song suggestions, was super professional, friendly, and (most importantly!) played the best music! No cheesy tunes or line dances or crazy lights or blow-up dolls or nonsense. In fact, he was recommended to me by a friend when I bemoaned the lack of non-cheesy DJs in this city. From the moment we first met with him, we knew we'd found our DJ. We booked him right away and weren't disappointed. All our friends commented on how good the music was and I've been recommending him to everyone since. Music is such an important part of a wedding and we were so happy to have someone we could trust fully. HIGHLY recommended!

While we were incredibly happy with the overall experience of our wedding, we believe that our DJ--Aria Melody---really was the piece de resistance of the event. Our family and friends danced from beginning to end of the reception, which is exactly what we had hoped. John was prepared with every song we requested, and put together a beautiful mix for our cocktail hour and reception. He was exceptionally professional and easy to work with...you would be lucky to land him as your wedding DJ.

John was such a great part of our wedding!. He was such an easy vendor to plan and work with. We had been at a wedding two years back in which he was DJ'ing and we immediately thought of him when it came time to plan our own wedding. We liked the fact that he was the no gimmick DJ! No line dances, no lights, no fog machines, just great music for our guests to enjoy. John has a great website with a list and clips of songs to help you decide on songs for entrances, father/daughter, mother/son, cake cutting, etc. We found this really helpful since there were some parts of the night we weren't sure which direction to go.
The music he played was just what we were hoping for. He had everybody out there dancing the entire night long, which is all I could ask for as a host. He even taped our speeches for us since we didn't have a videographer. Such a plus since we were going to ask a friend to do it! He was extremely responsive to all our emails and communication before the wedding and he came dressed for the occasion. I would highly recommend John to any bride looking for peace of mind and a good time.

From the first time we met John he was extremely organized and professional. He did an awesome job DJing our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. He even kept in touch with the venue manager and our videographer in the weeks before the wedding to make sure all set-up would go smoothly. He played the songs we wanted him to and none of the cheesy stuff we didn't want. He did a great job feeling out the crowd and the vibe, and choosing which songs to play accordingly. He also was perfect on the mic announcing the necessary wedding stuff (grand entrances, speeches, cake cutting, etc). After the wedding, John took the extra step of sending us video he took which was greatly appreciated since we didn't have the video back yet from the videographer and we were anxious to relive the night :)

John was phenomenal. I really believe that a DJ can make or break your wedding and our DJ absolutely MADE our wedding. People I have never seen dance before we're on the floor all night long. The music was awesome and very impressive considering we gave VERY little guidance (though it was welcomed). John's professionalism was A+. He was so quick to respond before AND after the wedding. Without John our wedding would have certainly not been as much fun.

This is long overdue. We can't say enough good things about Aria Melody (John Sinclair). We had a wide array of different age groups and cultures at our wedding (all with different musical tastes) and somehow, John got everyone up to dance. Our dance floor was packed the entire time! We were amazed to see so many different people dancing together and having a good time. It's been months since we got married and people still tell us about the great time they had dancing at our wedding.

While the music was great and the dancing spectacular, John helped us out in a way that I did not foresee: John helped my wife and I relax on our wedding day by coordinating with the maitre'd and our mothers-in-law to address all the last minute changes at our reception. I'm a project manager by trade and I put a lot of time and effort into planning our wedding. Despite my efforts, there were a few unknowns that had to be dealt with quickly and properly (we did not have a wedding planner). Since John had invested the time to get to know us before our wedding day, he knew the details of what we did and did not want. On our wedding day, John was able to put our minds at ease with his thoroughness, thoughtfulness and professional manner. John was there to answer questions and "direct traffic" so that we could focus on enjoying our special day.

We chose Aria Melody because their website states "No lights. No fog. No gimmicks." While all of that is true, I would also add "No Worries" because John takes ownership of his work and invests the time to make your day flow the way you dreamed it would. Thanks for everything John!

My husband and I went to a wedding of a former co-worker and John Sinclair was the DJ at her wedding. We remembered the music being great to dance to, and not overly loud so that we were able to have conversations with other guests at our table without difficulty. When my husband and I met John to discuss him being the DJ at our wedding, we got an excellent first impression of him. He was warm, professional and open to any suggestions we had.
We received all positive feedback from our guests about the music at our wedding.
We would highly recommend John to any couple looking for a DJ for their wedding. You will not be disappointed!

Working with John was a pleasure. We wanted our party to be both sophisticated and fun, and John made sure to have everything we wanted. Our guests ranged in age from 7 to 81, and everyone's tastes were accommodated.

Before the party, if I had a question, my emails were answered immediately. John even checked in with us right before the party, and made sure everything was ready. I recommend Aria Melody highly, and will definitely keep them in mind for future events.

He only really spoke when we asked him to announce something and for the introductions. If you think most djs are cheeseballs and stupid (like we do), contact John since he's the complete opposite!!!

John did an excellent job in every way! Right from the start we were comfortable
that we booked a wonderful DJ. He was very informative during our first meeting and always
responded to my many e-mails filled with questions. He was helpful throughout,
especially when he gave us song suggestions for different parts of the day (1st dance, parent dance etc.) It was great to talk to him a few days before the wedding to finalize everything and go over correct pronunciations, which I might add he did perfectly!!

The wedding went smoothly, and for an early wedding on a Saturday John had people up and dancing. He played music that appealed to our guests which was a wide age range.
We had many guests come up to us during the wedding and tell us that the music was great and that John was playing the best songs! He played all of our requests and
none of the songs on our "Do Not Play" list.

I strongly recommend Aria Melody. They were truly a pleasure to work with and the music they played made our wedding day even more enjoyable.

We had no complaints from guests about the music being too loud or not loud enough, and the music selection was great. We wanted a lot of fun dance music, and that is exactly what we got. Thanks!"

John was absolutely brilliant at our wedding. Multiple guests commented and even asked for copies of the playlist. Not sure we have ever been to a wedding where people never stopped dancing - we are grateful it was our own. Thanks for all of your efforts and assurances and for making our day so seamless.

These dudes are top-flight blokes. Young, down to earth, friendly, helpful and
willing to do everything in their power to make sure we got the music we wanted, down to
the very last gypsy punk anthem. We're music fiends, as are a number of our closest friends, so we took it
upon ourselves to create the entire play list and leave it up to John and Paul what the best order was for these
songs to play in. It didn't matter that they'd never heard of half the bands on our list.
They found the songs and gave 'em a listen and had them ready to go. And they were great with
the announcements and looked quite natty in their suits and ties.

People were shaking it out on the dance floor all night. And nary a smoke machine or chicken dance in sight.

Martin and I were so happy with John and Paul. They were extremely professional. They answered all of my questions, responded to emails in a timely manner, gave me a contract that was very clear and explaining all terms, had a good payment policy, and were very helpful with the music selection. They arrived early and everything seemed to run smoothly. I didn't notice anything so to me that means there were no problems. The announcements were also great, they said what needed to be said and that was it."

Everything was perfect. We gave them a huge list of 70+ songs to play and they played them and threw in a couple of their own. I know my family and his dance but I was SHOCKED that the dance floor was PACKED from the first song!

My parents were thrilled that it was loud enough to dance but not too loud and you could talk at the tables. They were really hard on us about the music; really hoping it would be good dancing music at the right level and they were thrilled at our selection of DJ!

I really couldn't believe how perfect they were!!

John was such an AMAZING DJ! We just got back from our honeymoon and every one of our guests so far has raved about the music and how it was the most fun wedding they've ever been to! THANK YOU John for making our special day so special for everyone we love! We HIGHLY recommend John. He's very talented, professional, can read a crowd so well, had a great mix of current and old school dance music to keep everyone on their feet. Many of our savvy music friends were blown away by John's mixing skills using his computer programs. Our wedding was the first I've ever attended where everyone was dancing WITH us from the first dance to the last song. Thanks again John for providing an awesome celebration on the most memorable night of our lives :)

Aria Melody DJ did a fantastic job for our wedding. Our DJ, Owen, was so easy to work with. Leading up to the wedding, he helped us craft our playlists and came up with great suggestions as needed. In talking over our music selections with him, it was clear that he understood exactly the type of atmosphere we were looking to create with our music choices.

Owen's work on the day of the wedding was perfect. We had a non-traditional reception venue that came with a variety of logistical challenges (cocktail hour outside, dinner in two separate rooms inside, and dancing in yet another room, with outdated and in some cases broken electrical hook-ups throughout the old building), but Owen figured out the best plan and executed it seamlessly. While dancing was going on following dinner, he even managed to have a separate, more low-key playlist continuing in the dinner rooms for guests who wanted a more relaxed environment.

In addition to all that, Owen also came early to provide audio support for the ceremony in the garden outside the venue, which was basically the fifth separate space for which he needed to provide speakers. I honestly have no idea how he accomplished all of this by himself, but he did it flawlessly and without any sign that it was a challenge at all. I just can't say enough about what a huge role Owen played in making all parts of our wedding day a success.

And all of that is not even to mention that the music he played was exactly what we wanted. For cocktail hour and dinner, we provided Owen with a mix of suggestions that ranged from classic Sam Cooke/Otis Redding, to more modern Wilco and Arcade Fire, and he managed to blend all of our choices perfectly. And he did the same on the dance floor, starting out with classic songs that all of our guests enjoyed dancing to, and then getting into more modern options as the evening got later.

Finally, Owen did not draw any attention to himself at any time throughout the night. He just let the music speak for itself, which is exactly the type of DJ we were looking for.

I am so glad that we hired Aria Melody DJ. We recommend them whole-heartedly.

We loved working with Owen from Aria Melody DJ! My husband went over a lot of details and music with him and always found him friendly and responsive. He was prompt and did all his set up and sound checks without us even knowing it! His music was great and he never came out on the dance floor or shouted into the mic which was the #1 thing we DIDN'T want. Very pleased over all!

Rob was our DJ and we couldn't have been happier with our decision to go with Aria Melody! Rob was very personable and overall a nice guy - he was never over-the-top and didn't talk too much on the mic. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the dinner music especially - and the volume was such that we could hear ourselves talk - my #1 frustration when attending a wedding. He played just about everything we asked him to and threw in some other great choices of his own as well. Highly recommend going with Rob and Aria Melody DJ! Our wedding was a blast!

John Sinclair did an amazing job! He had everyone up and dancing before dinner was served! He was very professional – meeting with us several times and really getting a sense of who we are. Wish we could rewind and do it all again! Go with ARIA Melody and John Sinclair, you can’t go wrong!

Owen spun for the dance party we held after our wedding and was absolutely fantastic. He totally understood what we were looking for, and kept people on the floor dancing the whole night. John organized everything and was totally responsive whenever we had a question or needed to make arrangements for the party. I would use Aria Melody for any future party and recommend them wholeheartedly.

Aria Melody DJ did an absolutely incredible job on our wedding day! John was easy to work with, let us decide the music we wanted for our day, did not interfere with cheesy talk or announcements, and provided the atmosphere we wanted...fun!

We were really passionate about not having fog, strobe lights, dumb jokes and all that nonsense that goes along with most DJs...and Aria Melody delivered. It was nice after talking to John not to have to worry, "would the music be right for our reception?" He took a lot off our plate and made our day even more enjoyable!
