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

We hired Aria Melody DJ for our Halloween Eve wedding and we had the pleasure of having Joseph Schimicci as our DJ!! How lucky are we?! From our first meeting he was so kind and friendly. The music was the most important part of the wedding to me as we did not have any traditional music at our wedding. We had a lot of Tim Burton/Danny Elfman music going on and Joe put everything together beautifully and pulled it off flawlessly. It set the perfect mood for each phase of the evening and guests commented on how cool and unique that was. I was having a hard time picking the music and Joe was very patient with me and provided a lot of wonderful suggestions. I will be recommending him to anyone I know in need of a DJ.

Aria Melody, specifically Joe Dunn, was hands down the best decision I made for my wedding besides deciding to marry Sara. We had an amazing night and it all started with Joe taking the time to chat with us about our music interests and ideas. He used that feedback to craft a genuinely unique and personalized night that we will never forget. Several guests approached me over the course of the evening to tell me how great the music was, especially the covers and mash-ups that Joe weaved in to keep the party on point all night. These guys really know how to gauge a crowd and keep everyone on their feet. We couldn’t be any happier with the job that Aria Melody and Joe Dunn did at our wedding and I would recommend their services to anyone without hesitation.

We used their services for our Ceremony, Cocktail Hour and Reception. Joe did an awesome job of making each part of the night come to life using music that captured each of our personalities and tastes.

I want to have another big party just to have Joe DJ it again! Thanks for everything!

DJ Rob was awesome! Our wedding was a non stop party from the first dance to the last. We were pretty picky about our music. I wanted people to dance, but I didn't want to be playing top 40 at my wedding. Rob played such a wide array of great music, it was perfect. Thank you!!

Rob was an excellent DJ who demonstrated a masterful, yet subtle, ability to control the upbeat mood and atmosphere of our wedding. He made himself available months in advance of our wedding to walk us through the process and assuage our fears about what type of music would be played. He went the extra distance by checking out the venue in advance of the reception and coordinating with other vendors to maximize dance floor space. During the reception, Rob kept generations of all ages dancing, which, in and of itself, is incredible. I would recommend Rob to anyone.

My husband and I were married on 10/3/15. We chose Aria Melody for it's "no gimmicks" tagline. We aren't ostentatious people. We wanted a good DJ who listened to our requests and played good music. We definitely got that with Joe S! He was so helpful with planning the music and delivered everything we asked of him. Our guests are still commenting on how much fun dancing was and how impressed they were with our DJ. I'd recommend Aria Melody to anyone getting married! Great experience!

I knew Aria Melody was "the one" after seeing their straightforward, "no gimmicks" website, and they totally delivered. Joe S. was a dynamite DJ--I'm kind of bummed that I was busy being a bride during some of the music bits, because I would have LOVED to have been part of the surprise funk session that broke out in the middle of the night.

Joe was great at moving in and out of songs that weren't getting people on the floor, something that only happened maybe twice. He was very easy to work with (so mellow that I was even a little nervous about his potential energy levels--I shouldn't have wasted my time. He was totally on his A-game), and even sourced a few songs that I was worried would be difficult to get.

Four months later, and people are still talking about how fun our wedding was. Joe was a huge part of that, and I'm so grateful.

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.

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.

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!
