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

Joe from aria melody really set the tone for our wedding on 8/29/15! We loved his easy going demeanor and positive attitude, not to mention his very impressive resume and experience in the field. Joe was so accommodating to all of our requests and was so appropriate on the mic. He really pulled a rabbit out of a hat with the music when our slideshow malfunctioned. We gave Joe a last minute cd about 30 minutes before our reception and he was able to play the music without a hitch! I really feel like he got our taste in music from the few songs I requested. I would highly recommend aria melody for any event.

When my wife and I first stumbled upon Aria Melody DJ’s website, we had a really good feeling about them. And when we sat down with Joseph Schimicci in person, we knew he and Aria would be the perfect fit. We discussed our music interests and our vision, and he really seemed to understand us and what we wanted. The music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception (he did all three, which were held in different rooms of the same building) went off without a hitch. The music was just amazing – it was “us.” And when it came to dancing, he had the dance floor moving the whole evening. A lot of guests even told us that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to, and we know that the music had a lot to do with that. Joe was also able to accommodate last-minute requests and additions. He and Aria were an absolute joy to work with, and we highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a personalized, seamless, and stress-free experience.

DJ Joe Dunn, with Aria Melody, did an absolutely fantastic job at our wedding. Always professional, yet down-to-earth with everything from quoting, to conversations/communications, and of course the performance! He totally catered to us, but at the same time we felt completely comfortable trusting him with the job. We didn't even finalize our important songs until practically the day before (lol) but he was very cool about it. I trusted him 100% to do what we needed. We actually decided to book a live musician for our ceremony, but that person turned out to be a "no show"!! Thankfully Joe was on site bright and early, setting up and was able to jump in just 30 minutes prior and take over the ceremony music. I should mention that we did not choose traditional music for the ceremony, so I was a little concerned, but he pulled it all together exactly as requested, on the spot!

Our guests stayed on the dance floor the WHOLE NIGHT - from the very first song to the very last long. People are still talking about how fantastic the wedding was, and I know the music was a huge part of that!

Joe Schmicci was the best DJ we could hope for! My husband is very into music and we had a lot of specific requests and he got them all! We had Spanish and Israeli music that was hard to find, but Joe made it happen. The effort he put it was above and beyond. I highly recommend Aria Melody and Joe S.

The whole Aria Melody team, and most especially DJ Rob, was incredible to work with! Highly professional and prompt, and exactly what was promised -- no gimmicks! I was a little bit nervous planning a wedding to be held in NYC by booking most vendors via phone/email and without in-person meetings due to being out of town, but I never questioned that Aria was the right fit for us! We actually looked at two different cities and had some crazy DJ experiences elsewhere, to the point of almost being harassed! Aria and DJ Rob put me at ease and I never had any issues or displeasure.

In the few weeks leading up to the ceremony, DJ Rob sent me links for Spotify playlists so that I could give him a feel for what vibe we wanted for each part of the event: pre-ceremony, cocktail hour, and then a formal dinner separate from the dance party to round out the night. The venue is two stories so we needed sound equipment all over the place, and after setting up for an outdoor ceremony, it started pouring 45 minutes before and we moved the ceremony inside but still had dancing outside. This created A LOT of work for DJ Rob and he handled it incredibly well and was just an all-around pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

Aside from a few song requests, I wanted a DJ who would simply use his/her best judgment and play a nice mix of music. Aria Melody delivered on that. I thought that Joe was good DJ who encouraged my guests to get on the floor without being cheesy. I would have liked more mixing of the songs, but other than that no complaints. Joe and Aria Melody were very professional and prompt in responding to my inquiries. I enjoyed working with them.

We worked with Joe from Aria and he was great. The spreadsheets they provide to get started with the music selection were very helpful, and he worked with us to accommodate all of the music we wanted. During the reception he was totally flexible when we wanted to change around the order of some parts. I did not give 5 stars only because there were a couple of things we had planned out on our list that didn't happen during the reception (we had planned to do the "longevity dance" and with the timing of everything else it just didn't happen). To us it was not a big deal, but if it had been one of our priorities I would have been upset. Overall Aria was great to work with. They had an established relationship with our officiant (Celia Milton) and they communicated amongst themselves to get the ceremony audio set up. It really couldn't have been easier for us.

John was our DJ for our wedding November 15, 2014. He was incredibly wonderful to work with from the minute we first contacted through the last song of the night on our wedding day. John, and his company, are truly focused on making sure the bride and groom - and all of your guests - are having the best time possible, while honoring your taste and style in music. John immediately "got" us and played nearly every song we asked him to play at our wedding. Better yet, his improvisational song picks were spot on, crowd pleasers that had the dance floor packed all night. My husband and I have received countless compliments on the music at our wedding. We wanted everyone up off their seats having a great time, which is exactly what we got.

One of the best parts about working with John and his company is the incredible amount of song suggestions they provide you. It was so nice to have that kind of guidance planning out our music, when it is often hard to think of where to start. John even recommended dour first dance song - which we had never heard of before - but have come to love. Guests were coming up to us at the wedding asking us about the song, and telling us how much they loved it.

We are so incredibly happy that we picked John as our DJ.

Aria Melody was great! We had Joseph as our DJ and greatly enjoyed working with him. He really listened to what we wanted (no cheesy songs or excess time on the mike!) and incorporated some last minute changes/additions the day of the wedding seamlessly. We had an amazing time dancing our hearts out, as did our friends/family. We'd recommend Aria Melody in a heartbeat!

Everyone raved about how great of a DJ we hired for our wedding, and we have Owen to thank! He did a superb job keeping the music going and getting everyone on the dance floor. The floor was packed basically the entire night, so compliments to the DJ! One of the introductions got messed up, but it was an honest mistake that I think was due to an error in printing the names in our wedding party. I was a bit bummed that he prematurely began a particular song before we were ready for it, but again, it was likely miscommunication and would have happened with any DJ company. Overall, we were very pleased with Owen and Aria Melody, and we were so fortunate to have had them perform at our wedding! Owen did a fantastic job, and so many of our friends made it a point to tell us how excellent our DJ was at mixing music and keeping everyone on the dance floor! We would 100% recommend Owen and Aria Melody to anyone and everyone!!!!
