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

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!!

Very professional service and classy DJ'ing. The DJ'ing was great because (1) followed our song selections, (2) professional voice and demeanor as DJ (no wacky voice-overs and over the top DJ talking), (3) nice guy, and (4) good value. People had a great time.

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).

Owen did a great job as our DJ. He was in constant contact leading up to our wedding, making sure he had all of the details, people's names, song choices, etc. The day of the wedding went off without a single mistake. All of the songs we chose were played and he did a great job reading the crowd and keeping everyone up and having fun. You can't go wrong using this company.

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!

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.
