I was referred to DJ Rick from another vendor of mine (photographer) and upon meeting with Rick just one time, was instantly impressed with his services! In just one meeting, we connected with Rick in a way that made us very comfortable. He was very detailed in what he had to offer along with a personalized wedding planner book that outlined everything needed to have a perfect wedding! Upon arriving home from our meeting, we know we didnt need to look any further! Over my couple year long engagement, Rick kept in contact with us unlike any of our other vendors. When it came time to really start choosing songs, his booklet was super helpful. It outlined everything and had lists upon lists of songs to choose for every category. Without this, I wouldn't have ever thought to have special songs for special moments. Any time I had a question or needed any suggestions at all, Rick was always there with an answer almost immediately if not at least within the same day. Rick takes 110% pride in the work he does and it definitely shows throughout the whole planning process. The itinerary I received a few weeks before the wedding was helpful to me to set straight all of my other vendors. It is one thing I referred to whenever I needed to plan the day of. The day of my wedding, I knew I had nothing to worry about with Rick in control of everything. I arrived at the venue early, and there Rick was with a smile on his face asking if there was anything I needed. Throughout the wedding, everything flowed beyond amazing! He made suggestions here and there to make the night the best it could be. During some downtime, Rick suggested with take some pictures outside with the sun setting, and I am so thankful for the suggestion as the pictures came out more amazing than I could have imagined. The music he played was amazing and I received many compliments with how great the night was! By the end of it, my legs were like jello and I needed my knee brace! He was AMAZING!

We just had a wonderful wedding celebration in Peabody, MA at the Smith Barn and I never write reviews. I can't tell you how amazing DJ Rick Bellanti was to work with, he was one of the main reasons our day went so perfectly.

The level of service you get with him is top notch and one of those vendors you feel like you've underpaid. He provides you with all that you need to make your dancing / DJ reception needs custom just for you. Pre-meetings, a huge list of song ideas, a planning booklet, an outline on timing, microphone/ background music for anyone also planning to sing (which I had two people and he accomodated them with exactly what they needed). You don't realize how much goes into all the planning down to every vendor and I am so thankful and grateful that Rob and I went with DJ Rick Bellanti.

If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding reception or any big party in New England --- you want him, trust me!

Thanks Rick for aiding in making our day so perfect!
Love,
Marisa & Rob Wilich

DJ Ricky B was the BEST! I am what you may call an over planner, and when I had read and heard of the work Rick did, I was immediately impressed. When he discussed his planning book with us, I was even more impressed, and after the wedding is now over, we are still just blown away by the service he provided. Rick was always available to answer a question or concern, and his attention to detail was so striking. I had every email answered almost immediately. The planning book he gave us was so helpful I can’t even begin to describe how much at ease he put us. Our venue originally warned us, be sure to pick a good DJ, they can make or break an event, and wow were they right! DJ Rick had me dancing all night, and I do not normally dance at all. I had so much fun it didn’t matter if I had ‘the moves’ he kept us smiling and laughing all night long. It’s like he knew exactly how I was feeling too, because just when I was out of breath and ready for a break, a slow song was there! My husband and I were not the only ones who danced our hearts out, every family member and friend I have spoken with said how sore their feet were the next day because they did the same! The personality, energy and efficiency he helped bring to our wedding was invaluable! Thank you so SOO much DJ Rick, I will never forget how much fun you helped us all have; it was the best day of my life!

Finding a DJ was the second hardest thing for us to do in the wedding planning process. My husband and I had no idea where to begin and were working on a very limited budget so we began the exhausting hunt to find someone we felt comfortable with AND could afford by going google crazy. We interviewed 3 DJs in total and when we left our meeting with Rick my husband already knew who I was going to pick even know I had one more interview setup after him. His organization and thoroughness is second to none and with my quirky personality it was a must.

Upon our first meeting Rick was very calming and supportive of our million questions. His detailed planning book is so well thought out, was fun to fill out, and made things sooo much easier. We met again a few weeks before the wedding at which point I was in a full out panic over our to-do list but he again was calming and walked us through it all.

He provided the music at our ceremony and reception as well as kept us on time. He made it so easy to transition from one thing to the next without feeling rushed or under the gun. He played everything we requested, a fantastic mix of music that appealed to all the age groups, and played what we put on the "do not play list" only after the best man begged and begged and he gently asked our permission at an opportune time (yes, I'm anti- chicken dance).

Rick is amazing at what he does and really made the night with his great mix of music, lighting and personality. I highly recommend him!!!!

Rick was great to work with! He really listened to our taste in music and even found some obscure songs that we wanted to play during our ceremony. Although we had a small guest list, he was able to get people up and dancing. He was very easy to get in contact with and always got back to me quickly when I had any questions. He provides a very easy to follow booklet that lays everything out and helps you to stay organized with the events of the day. He also gave us a CD at the end of the night that had all of our ceremony and specific wedding songs on it. Highly recommended! -L&K

We first decided to meet with Ricky B. to discuss the possibility of hiring him as the DJ at our wedding reception based almost entirely on his very competitive prices, and boy were we glad we did! He was a pleasure to work with – friendly, organized, professional, and he helped to make our very special day very fun. He not only helped us to pick out the music for our reception he helped us plan the entire timeline for the reception. We especially appreciated the time he took to personalize his workbook to reflect that we are a same sex couple including changing the cover to include two brides. If you’re looking for a professional DJ for a fun event where you want everyone on the dance floor I highly recommend DJ Ricky B.

We initially had been planning on using a friend to DJ our wedding so when they backed out a bit on panic ensued. I hadn't alloted much of our budget for the DJ and everyone I was looking at either had terrible reviews or was way out of our price range so when I saw the prices and reviews for Rick it seemed too good to be true. After meeting with him and seeing his attention to detail we knew we were making a good choice. Rick provided great communication and suggestions along the way. The day of our wedding went off without any issues and he was sure to keep everything running smoothly but was never pushy. Thanks so much for a fabulous evening and keeping the party going in just our style!

Rick was extremely responsive to all communications, especially email. I never had to wait and wait and wait to hear back from him. He is exceptionally professional and organized, even from his first meeting with you where he covers his booklet, which is extremely helpful for your planning. Who knew there were so many songs to pick?

He even includes a massive list of that year’s most popular songs, in case you get stuck on what to cut your cake to! For our final meeting, he drove close to an hour to meet in our hometown in order to accommodate our hectic schedule.

As others have said, you will not find a more affordable DJ, not in MA, not in NH, not anywhere.
There were some things that we weren’t that happy with though. On our very first meeting with him, he mentioned that some brides give full playlists and it limits the DJ’s ability to read the crowd. I couldn’t agree more, I’m hiring a DJ to keep the guests on the floor, what do I know about that?

In our final meeting, my song list stated: “Top 40s, from 80s, 90s, today”. That’s all I wanted to give for direction because I wasn’t picky, but he wanted a little more direction than just the top 40s. I followed up with him with Usher, Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull, Madonna, B-52s, Michael Jackson, etc... basically elaborating on the type of top 40s we were looking for.

The dance floor was nearly empty for a good half of the reception. Obviously, this isn’t entirely the DJs fault; some people just don’t like to dance. But when people get up for 70s and 80s tunes, and sit down for music from 2012/13, maybe the music should remain in the decade that’s keeping the people on the floor. We ultimately felt that he didn’t read the crowd well.

Honestly, I danced nonstop the entire time, but it was disheartening to see the dance floor clear out every few songs. Even so, we would still recommend him, and if we were to do it all over again we’d still book him (and maybe be more adamant about not wanting to specify songs)

We are so happy that we choose Bell Aire Music Productions for our wedding day. Rick was professional, courteous, and such a pleasure to work with. He offered us great advice and always answered any emails I sent right away.
We met with him a few times, first as a consultation and second to finalize our music selections. The wedding booklet he gives you is so informative that it had things that we didn't even think about.
On the day of the wedding, he played a great mix of variety. From some of the classics like Elvis and Frank Sinatra to my favorite band Queen, to top hits like Carly Rae Jepsen and Katy Perry. He took requests and it made the night so much more enjoyable. My only regret is that, at the end of the night, we forgot to thank him for being so awesome and to take a picture with him! I'm very confident that we will use him again for our next family function.
Take my advice and book him for your wedding. You won't regret it! Thanks again. Rick, for making our wedding everything we had hoped for!
Love, Nicole and Don

Rick was awesome...so awesome I recommended him to all my friends and 2 are actually going ahead and using him for their weddings as well. He was flexible with his times, meeting us in the evening after work during the week. Always responsive to my emails. Never questioned the ridiculous songs we wanted to have played and our overall how we wanted to have things done. He went over the entire wedding, ceremony and reception, to make sure he got everything just the way we wanted.

Hire DJ Rick Bellanti and you can say with confidence that your wedding is going to rock!! From our initial consultation to a follow up after the wedding, Rick is so organized and detail oriented that you can rest assured your event will be amazing!! The hiring process was easy and seamless and the pricing was more than reasonable. He incorporates a wedding day planning booklet which leaves no stone unturned and the attention to detail was truly appreciated. Professional and flexible, Rick had no problem working with our musician and made the night run smoothly, despite the fact that our wedding party was running a little late getting to the venue. His experience is invaluable and he genuinely cares that your event is everything you want it to be. Rick took the time to do things right and was even spot on when pronouncing the trickiest of names in our wedding party. Planning a wedding can be crazy stressful and having quality vendors is paramount. As a bride who is super picky and truly expects the best, I can recommend DJ Rick Bellanti and Bell-Aire Music Productions without reservation!!! Thanks for helping to make our wedding such a blast!!

Rick Bellanti is the BEST! When it comes to organization, he surpasses all the vendors I worked with in planning my wedding. Rick is a true professional and cares about his clients. My husband and I knew that many of our guests were not dancers, but Rick used his amazing talents and got the dance floor moving. We also had a mix of music styles that could have easily thrown the most accomplished DJ, but Rick rose to the occasion. Armenian music, top 40, Sinatra era, and everything we asked for. He is very knowledgable when it comes to what works at a reception and what doesn't. I'm glad to have had his coaching through a process that seemed overwhelming. I would highly recommend Bell-Aire Music Productions to any Bride and Groom who are looking for a DJ who personalizes the music to the celebration and the couple. Any celebration would have a great ally in DJ Rick Bellanti.

We had just a few weeks to go until our wedding when our DJ friend bailed on us. I set out searching (desperately!) to find someone we liked and who was available when I came across Bell-Aire Music Productions. Rick was so kind and understanding during our first phone call and I was excited to meet with him. My fiance and I both loved him right from that very first meeting. He was so helpful, down-to-earth and nice. His prices are amazing too. His price does not match his quality because he was an amazing DJ at the lowest price we had heard of! Our bad luck with our friend turned out to be one of the best things to happen because we got to work with Rick. He is so detailed and brought up song ideas for stuff we hadn't even thought of.

Rick was amazing at our wedding. He kept the floor packed and everyone had a blast. I am looking forward to working with Rick again in the future. He rescued us from a near disaster and was so nice about it all. I am so thankful we had the oppportunity to work with him and we highly recommend him to everyone we know.

Rick did an amazing job at my wedding. We had only a month to plan out our wedding, and Rick was extremely accommodating during this time. He sent out his amazing planner that helped me plan parts of the reception I never even thought about. He covers all of the bases. He had all of the music we selected and during the reception and dinner played a very nice variety of music. He was very easy to work with and very affordable. Everyone had a lot of fun dancing all night. Myself included!

Rick, you are amazing. We cannot thank you enough for your hard work and dedication to making our wedding ceremony and reception beyond perfect. We have had numerous compliments from our guests about how awesome of a DJ you are and how great you were at keeping the dance floor full and the party going! We truly are very thankful to have contacted you and cannot thank you enough.

We had a lot of last minute changes and he took care of us. If you want to have a nice DJ at your wedding, he is the best one you can choose, so get him. His prices are very reasonable compared to all the other DJ company's in the same area. (don't let his cheaper prices fool you) You were so organized and on top of everything making our wedding a wonderful time for all. You are truly one of the best DJs we have come across in a long time. And will pass your name around. Thank you for being a part of our special day. Agela & Mike (Wedding 10/21/2011)

THANK YOU DJ RICK! You were so awesome and helpful during the whole wedding planning process, and the wedding turned out AMAZING! I am especially grateful for when you came to my rehearsal to help practice the wedding march. I felt so much better afterwards! And I think the drunken dancing to "Thriller" and "Bye Bye Bye" speak for themselves! I am STILL hearing people tell me that it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Thank you so much!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, this guy is the real deal! And I do mean deal. His record speaks for itself; at first we thought it might be too good to be true a reasonably priced DJ that was willing to work with us on such a tight budget, but yet he gave us so much in return.

We were able to find Rick through a family member who used his services for a 50th anniversary party. He has since been the DJ of choice for all our family events, and has already booked two more weddings with more relatives.

His attention to detail is flawless, and he answers his emails at all hours of the night and always got back to us within what seemed like seconds. We always felt like we were his top priority even though we know he keeps a busy schedule. He kept our wedding running smooth so much that the 5 hours seemed to fly by. There weren’t that many dancers at our wedding except us young folks, (bunch of fuddy duddies) but he seemed to keep everyone entertained with his music selections, and even when our Great Aunt thought she’d stump him with an old song from Rosemary Clooney, Rick pulled it out (on CD!!!!!) and played it for her. Great tears of joy and great memories. He’s a big teddy bear (sorry Rick lol) and everyone was hugging him at the end of the night, like one of the family.

We found Rick and his company through another event site, but then found this site through an internet search of Rick's name. We just had to come back and leave a review for any future bride and grooms looking for DJ entertainment for the wedding.

We used Rick for both the ceremony music and the reception part. We found him really knowledgeable in helping with the songs for both, and we were very happy with the end results.

He's very laid back DJ focusing on the elegant part and not in your face or obnoxious in any way. We made sure of that before we hired Rick, because we've been to too many weddings where the DJ thinks he's the main attraction. Rick had everyone focusing on us and the music throughout the wedding, and really made the day special for us.

We used bellaire music productions for our ceremony and our reception. The dj was Rick Bellanti and he was very good. he helped us plan the whole reception and even picked the music for our ceremony which was last minute. his attention to detail was great and he was great at taking requests and keeping the dance floor going for the younger people that wanted to dance. He played a wide arrangement of music that made everyone happy. If your looking for a dj that will keep things professional he is worth checking into. He stayed within our budget which wasn't much $600 and other djs had set prices for well over $1000 he even stayed an extra hour at the end for only $50 and included dance lighting that looked great, other djs wanted extra $ for lights. above all is customer service was beyond exceptional, he answered emails right away, and met with us twice for no charge. Me and my husband highly recommend his services. thank you bell-aire music for making our day special.

My only complaint is I didn't want the reception to end - we were having way too much fun dancing! Thank you for everything you did along the way to make them feel confident that they could rely on you. I've already given your name out to several people and will continue to do so.

Great Service, GREAT Price. Was so helpful in the wedding planning.
Kept things running smooth and as others have said, knows how to read the crowd and played a variety of music that kept people dancing., from the little kids to the adults. Check out his Wedding Planner Book, it surpasses any other DJ we met and interviewed. If you've ever had any question about a wedding, he's the man to ask.

We will definitely use him for other family events as well.
We highly recommend him and his services and already have to other family members.

Non stop dance fest!!! So much fun!!! This guy kept them dancing all night long at my wedding! Rick was fun to work with. I loved working with him because he himself is a musician. I felt more comfortable that he would know what to play depending on who was in the audience. He gauged the crowd well and played to what fit. As well as making all the announcements in a professional manner, Great job!

The price was also INCREDIBLE. Hundreds lower than any other DJ we talked to. It showed me that he loves what he does. Extremely detail oriented with the wedding planning, no issues what so ever and even answers emails at all hours of the day and night and very quickly to respond with all the right answers. Great service.

It was a blast!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!

We were so fortunate to find rick through a family member at the last minute, when another dj we had hired bailed on us just weeks before our wedding. He was more then what we had hoped for and on the day we met with rick and received his wedding reception planner, we knew we made a good decision. He was so thorough right to the smallest of details that we had never thought of, he was right on top of everything from the song selections to the timeline to keeping everything running smooth. (And to think we almost went with a wedding planner also). We got one in our dj, rick knows his stuff!
Rick was so flexible and accommodating right up until the end with all my song changes and additions, and when we decided we needed music for our ceremony at another location, he made the necessary arrangements to do that for us too.
Rick knew exactly what to play and when to play it, from the choice in dinner music to when it came time to get the crowd up and dance. We have pretty much a laid back family, but Rick was able to get them up and dancing. He’s not the type of outgoing dj that will interact with your crowd a lot, and that was fine because he was exactly what we were looking for in our dj. From the introductions, to announcements, to throwing my bouquet, it was terrific.
Finally, we could not believe the price we were charged from rick and his company, after searching and speaking to many dj companies we were quoted prices anywhere from $500 to over $1800. We had told rick what the other dj had booked us for $600 just for the reception. rick came to us and understanding our last minute predicament charged the same amount but also included our ceremony too.
He is a great guy and we were very happy to have him for our wedding day. You would be too!

Oh by the way it was my daughter’s wedding reception. I will definitely hire him again,(maybe for my hubby's 50th) Everyone had a great time, my legs were killing me from dancing all night LOL, Very professional and accommodating from start to finish.

This guy does a GREAT job, played the music we requested, kept things running smooth. Took requests, etc etc. We had to keep him until the hall was closing because people didn't want to leave including us!! We all had such a great time. I would highly recommend him.

I must say we were very pleased with the entire process of finding Rick, the outline and service that Rick provided during the planning stage and the excellent music he provided the day of our wedding. Rick really helped us think of all the little things with respect to choosing music for special dances with a family member - noting cameras on the tables and working with us on how we wanted our ran to work. I would recommend Rick and Bellaire Music to anyone. I would most certainly use him again - great service, professionalism and excellent value. A HUGE Thank you for making our day a wonderful memory. :)

Rick did an amazing jpb for us. Hassle free, great music! Everyone danced and had a great time. All requests were honored and the young folks that stayed late into the night had a blast!

Thanks Rick for a super job. We would recommend BellAire Music to our friends and family anytime.

The music selection was great! The planning in advance of the wedding was beyond exceptional. Rick was easy to work with and the most detail-oriented and organized person I ever met. We wanted the evening to run smoothly and stress free for us, the night went exactly as planned. Everyone had a blast.
