Rob Sicat is a Portland-based DJ with over 13+ years of experience. He recently relocated to Oregon from Connecticut, where he was one of our top-rated DJs. At a young age, Rob realized the creative power of music: he would record songs off the radio on an old mini voice recorder his mother gave him, and mix the recorded songs simultaneously with different songs playing live on the radio.

After honing his skills on his cousin's DJ setup, Rob was able to use his compounded birthday, Christmas and allowance money to buy his very own set of Technics-1200 turntables. Since then, Rob has gone on to DJ for some of the biggest venues in California and NYC, including the Grove, the Ritz Carlton, Club Pechanga and the historic Mission Inn.

Rob is a precise, super-skillful DJ, listing his greatest strength as being a meticulous architect at crafting playlists that reflect each and every couple.  His vast knowledge and expertise ranges from an eclectic mix of great artists like Nick Drake, LCD Soundsystem, Sigur Ròs, The Chords, Van Morrison, Pink Martini, Daft Punk and Mark Ronson, to motown favorites, Top 40 dance hits and everything in between.

RAVES FOR ROB:

"Outstanding. Words cannot describe how pleased we are with Rob's work at our wedding. We gave him a few do/do not play-- but let him run the show. All we told them was that we had a wide range of ages and wanted Larissa + Mike / Photo by Amy Rizzuto Photographyeveryone on the dance floor for the majority of the night, and he did just that. The night flew by, and guests raved on how amazing, awesome, insane the music was and how it would flow. The dance floor was packed all night! Amazing job, thank you!!"

- Larissa + Mike

"Rob & John from Aria Melody were amazing. 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 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."

"We had a fantastic experience working with DJ Rob Sicat. Having a DJ with impeccable musical taste was very importance to us and he definitely delivered. We we first met, he clearly articulated his view on DJing ("no ego") and fully understood our taste in music. Over the coming months, he encouraged us to send him ideas andMary Kate + Minki / Photo by Todd Shapera Photographyabout a month before the wedding he started a Spotify list so we could upload songs to help him get a sense of our taste and our must-haves. We put together a list of specific songs for cocktail, dinner and dancing and Rob stuck to our requests while making sure the entire evening flowed. My only regret is that the dancing portion went too fast! We could've had him DJ for two more hours! If you want a sophisticated DJ will expansive and hip musical tastes, go with Rob!"

- Mary Kate + Minki

"We wanted a fun wedding without the constant chatter of the DJin the background and that's what we got! We loved Rob from the first interview! He listened to us very carefully and was thoughtful, knowledgeable and understanding about the kinds of music that we wanted. He collaborated with us on the music, providing feedback, thoughts and suggestions.

The set up was excellent for our needs and he fully understood the sequence of events at the wedding from start to finish. He was also flexible, adjusting the music and responding to requests on the spot, as well as responding to the mood of the room. Our guests (and staff) loved our wedding, and Rob was a major element in making that happen! We can't thank him enough!"

- Yiota + Duncan

Rob did an absolutely amazing job you did at our wedding reception. The music was exactly our taste, and kept people (myself included, which shocked me!) dancing the whole night! And I can't tell you how many compliments we got on the music - my sister-in-law said during dinner, "I just want to dance right now - this is fabulous!" and others said how they thought the music made the party seem so perfectly "us". 

Plus, for a bride and groom who thought the music just wasn't that important to us, boy did he prove us wrong. I cannot count the number of times I excitedly said, "oh my gosh I LOVE this song!!" and ran back out to dance. And my mother (the self-described non-dancer) was on the dance floor the whole night, having an amazing time. 

In the planning stages, Rob was responsive, professional, friendly and made sure to understand exactly what we wanted, and what would make us happy. And his use of Dropbox to communicate about musical taste was GENIUS. We would recommend Rob very highly!!

- Molly + Cory

From the beginning of planning to the day of our wedding, Rob was amazing. His desire to give his clients exactly what they want is such a breath of fresh air in an industry of DJ's who just want to make a quick buck. He is a GENIUS when it comes to music and showed us with such knowledge and professionalism how you can mix different types of music to create a truly unique playlist for your wedding. 

He was always available to get ahold of, and always made sure to call or e-mail to ask for my opinion on things. He was one of the few vendors who made me completely comfortable with exactly what was going to happen on my big day. Our guests were dancing the night away and kept commenting on how fun the music was. He even coordinated a surprise with my brothers and sisters (who played me a song on the guitar) that brought the whole place to tears. 

Alex + Beau / Mark Brooke PhotographyI can't say enough good things about Rob, and his work ethic, and my husband and I will be referring people to him for the next 10 years. :) Thank you Rob, for making our wedding day perfect, and for making it "fit" our personalities so well. You are amazing!

- Alexandra + Beau

Rob made our wedding day amazing. We can't think of anyone else we would have wanted to DJ our wedding. He had every song we wanted and provided an excellent service. Thanks for giving us the day of our dreams!
