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

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!

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.

Aria Melody is all about the "no gimmicks, no lights, no cheese" and this is exactly what we wanted. John Sinclair was really easy to get in touch with and he put us in touch with our Dj, Owen. Owen found out more about us and we created a really fun musical atmosphere that everyone, from my friends to my parents, could enjoy. I would highly recommend Owen and Aria Melody to any bride!

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 !!

Many of our guests are still raving about the music at our wedding that Owen DJ'd in Westchester, NY. We really enjoyed being on the dance floor and I thought Owen kept the flow going the whole night even considering the international music that we had thrown into the mx of event. It was a pleasure dealing with Owen and John as we were planning the event. They we both very responsive and helpful in terms of making song suggestions and walking us through the process. Thanks again Aria for making our wedding an amazing night!

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!

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.
