"Music was such an important part of the wedding for us and John was by far the most easy-going and easy-to-work-with DJ with the best taste in music. Neither of us wanted someone that would make the wedding feel more like a cheesy Sweet16 by constantly talking but rather we wanted someone to feel out our guests and play music to get everyone in the mood for a fun night. John did just that! Everyone commented on his great selections and we had everyone from every age group up and dancing! The best part was his work on our processional, which to me had to be this all-encompassing movie-worthy moment and he timed the music perfectly so that we kissed at the exact right moment and it was beyond perfect! We can't thank John enough and would recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ!"
- Jackie + Jared
"Owen was our DJ for our 8-19 wedding and he was fantastic! He was very responsive and super nice throughout the whole process. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. He did our cocktail hour and reception and he totally listened to our suggestions and requests. He kept the people on the dance floor and there were even boos when he had to announce that dinner was being served and we needed to be seated! No one wanted to leave the dance floor! We had a great time and I have the blisters on my feet to prove it! I wish I had another event I could book him for! Highly recommend him!"
- Amanda + Matt
"I was so thrilled that we chose Aria Melody as the music for our wedding. Owen was the consummate professional and went above and beyond for our wedding. He made suggestions for songs and the schedule of events. He also remembered all of my personal requests for individual songs, times of the night, and set an amazing atmosphere. EVERYONE was on the dance floor all night long! We have quite the eclectic taste in music and it flowed seamlessly because of Owen. He even took the time to recognize whether a song would be too long and made suggestions for its length before I even thought about it. A few times I recommended the editing of a song and he already had thought of it and done it. It was like he read my mind! He has an ear for music and knows the right songs to play for your atmosphere or crowd. You cannot go wrong with choosing Aria Melody. They are well worth the money because the music makes the wedding, and it was amazing! Thanks so much, Owen."
- Taylor + Frank
"Owen was phenomenal! We loved him and all of our guests did too. If we ever have another event that we need a DJ for we're booking him."
- Brie + Jimmy
"Awesome DJ! Joe from Aria Melody DJ was great. No typical wedding cheeziness just good music and a few announcements. He kept the crowd lively and helped us to craft a playlist that was unique to our wedding. He was even good about rolling with the punches when we decided on a last minute bouquet toss/garter fling. Thanx Joe, and Aria Melody! You really helped make our day one to remember."
- Brianna + Peter
"We had a terrific experience with Aria Melody. John is a consummate professional and it shows from the first meeting to the day of the wedding. We loved John's accessibility and his suggestions when it came to picking entrance songs, etc. We enjoyed and appreciated being able to select certain songs and genres, eliminate others and then having John weave all of the music in to one cohesive evening. John did both the music during our ceremony as well as the reception and the transition was seamless. We are fans of Aria Melody and would recommend them to anyone interested in hiring a DJ."
- Helen + Jason
"Awesome DJ! Joe from Aria Melody DJ was great. No typical wedding cheeziness just good music and a few announcements. He kept the crowd lively and helped us to craft a playlist that was unique to our wedding. He was even good about rolling with the punches when we decided on a last minute bouquet toss/garter fling. Thanx Joe, and Aria Melody! You really helped make our day one to remember."
- Brianna + Peter
"Our experience with Aria Melody and Owen as our DJ could not have been better. We found Aria Melody through recommended vendors on numerous wedding websites and the rest was history. Our initial meeting with Owen was informative, casual, and gave us a real sense of the company's professionalism and attention to our desires. He was able to talk to us about what he envisioned our wedding to be like and help us fill in the gaps we were unsure about. Every email we sent him was quickly responded to, even up to the morning of our wedding when we were still making last minute decisions about music choices.
As for the wedding itself, I have had more people ask about our DJ than any other vendor. The dance floor filled up before the food was served, which is exactly what we wanted, and there was never a lull in the party the whole night. Our wedding was attended by people as young as 20 years old and as old as 87! Everyone complimented the music and Owen was able to determine the right selections for all the different points in the evening."
- Leila + Timothy
"Amazing experience all around with John at Aria Melody DJ. He was attentive, patient and all around professional. We met twice before the big day to discuss our music tastes and ideas - he was very helpful in answering questions and accommodating to make things work they way we wanted. On the wedding day the music was perfect - he followed our requests for music as well as improvised to match the mood of the wedding. He also was very attentive to the timeline of the night and made sure everything went smoothly. Words can't describe how great our experience was working with John - 200% recommendation."
- Teresa + Corey
"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 - 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."
- Lauren + Andrew
"John was the best. He was very kind, smart, and has great taste in music. He totally blended seamlessly with the wedding, set the entire vibe for a fantastic night, and was really nice to work with. I hope to use him again for another event someday!"
- Thayer + James
"We are so happy that we hired John Sinclair as a vendor. He is always professional, personable and best of all he's an amazing DJ! Leading up to our wedding he reached out to ensure that we were prepared for our formal dances as well as the dinner and dancing portion of our wedding. He is always quick to respond to emails and calls if you have any questions or concerns. We had a lot of ideas for him and he made everything happen flawlessly. The dance floor was packed the entire night and we received many compliments from our guests on the fun vibe that was created on our big day! If you are looking for a sophisticated, fun and memorable reception John will definitely not disappoint!"
- Amy + Andrew
"I can not say enough about John!!! From beginning to end he was a true professional. He was accommodating to our entire playlist, and gave us input and quick responses when we needed it. It was a Grade A experience working with John on our weeding and all of our requests were meet with 100% compliance. John doesn't need lights and fog to make a statement, his ability to keep a party going says it all. The lights went up at our wedding and people were still there-- not wanting to leave--the sign of a great party-- the sign of a GREAT DJ!!"
- Julie + Joey
"I was planning my wedding with a limited time schedule and John Sinclair was flexible in every respect. His musical assortment left no stone unturned and he went above and beyond his scope of DJ . It was very clear to me from the moment he approached us that he genuinely cared about making our day perfect. Additionally , every outlandish and obscure song my friends asked for , he had. Not in any sense your typical bells, whistles, smokescreen kind of DJ. Definitely recommend. Unbelievable value."
- Vanessa + Mark
"I knew just by looking at the Aria Melody website that John would almost definitely be our DJ. After 30 minutes of sitting down with him, he was the first and last DJ we met with. I wanted exactly what he was promising - none of the cheesiness that almost comes hand in hand with most DJs, the shouting over the songs, the dancing with crowd, the constant announcements - and he delivered just like his tag-line. John was extremely professional, he mixed the list of songs that we gave him with some amazing song choices throughout the night that may as well have been on our list! I was initially a bit worried about the mixing of song genres - but any crossover was totally smooth and perfectly blended. He completely exceeded my expectations - I have never been to a wedding where people are on the dance floor before the first course has even been served! Yes, he's THAT good! He also sticks to the "Do Not Play List" and has a good feel for things that you would shut down even if it's not on the do not play list. Throughout the night we were REALLY thankful for that! If I could give more stars I would because he is EXACTLY what we wanted in a DJ. John is completely tasteful, professional, and he will work with you or help you if you have any trouble with song choices. For us, the music is what really makes the wedding, so this vendor was the most important to us. Aria Melody DJ could not possibly disappoint you. John is amazing and you can tell just by talking to him that he has an extensive music catalog not only on his computer, but in his head. Thanks for making our wedding, John!"
- Christina + Al
"I was thinking about throwing in a couple 4-star scores just so everyone reading this would think it's more believable, but that would be dishonest. 5-stars all the way. There's not much else to say other than Aria Melody was perfect for us. John was everything we wanted in a DJ and nothing we didn't. His customer service skills were top-notch, basically doing anything and everything we asked him to. He was prepared and professional and the reception went perfectly. If you care about the music that plays at your reception at all, Aria Melody is perfect for you. Really, with everything he did he actually helped make the best day of my life even better."
- Ian + Grace
"John is the best! Of all our vendors, he was the most organized and quick to respond to every email of ours. He spent a very long time trying to help me find a specific type of music for our introduction and it was perfect. We got exactly what we wanted...a great party that had the dance floor full, with music we either picked or within the styles we told John we liked. He had a great feel for timing and the flow of songs were spot on. If you want a DJ that is running the show instead of trying to be in the middle of it, John is who you want. No excess talking, no self promoting during your event, and very professional. So much so that a bridesmaid already recommended John to her brother in law! John, many thanks for a day that ended way too soon and best wishes for your own wedding to be just as perfect as you helped make ours!"
- Niyati + Jesse
"John was wonderful from the moment we met with him. He was professional, friendly and was very easy to work with.We loved the idea that we both shared the "nothing cheesy" mindset as in no unnecessary talking/announcements, line dances and loved his music suggestions. He played everything, Motown, Hip hop, indie rock, pop and was great with helping us choose the right music.
He was helpful, accommodating, and easy to get in contact with until the very last minute of the wedding which was great because I am soooo indecisive. All in all we loved having John as our DJ, the music was great, EVERYONE had a blast, and our wedding was perfect. Thank you for everything John!! It was such a pleasure to have you be a part of our special day."
- Moon Joon + Seoung Jae
"John did an awesome job at our wedding. He was 110% professional but laid-back and fun; played all the music we wanted to hear; and we heard from both my parents and best man alike that it was the best wedding music they'd ever heard. We definitely appreciate how detail-oriented he was throughout and we just had an incredible time dancing the night away. We would definitely recommend him to friends getting married in the area in the future."
- Marian + Kaya
"We recently worked with John for the music for our wedding. John provided dinner music and dancing music. He was very flexible with our last minute additions even up until the night before. He also was great with providing suggestions and we ended up extending our wedding because everyone was having a great time. We have received many compliments that people said it was the best wedding they ever attended - and John was certainly part of making it a success. We would highly recommend working with John."
- Hannah + Mark
"We absolutely LOVED Aria Melody. John was so great to work with--he listened to us, gave great song suggestions, was super professional, friendly, and (most importantly!) played the best music! No cheesy tunes or line dances or crazy lights or blow-up dolls or nonsense. In fact, he was recommended to me by a friend when I bemoaned the lack of non-cheesy DJs in this city. From the moment we first met with him, we knew we'd found our DJ. We booked him right away and weren't disappointed. All our friends commented on how good the music was and I've been recommending him to everyone since. Music is such an important part of a wedding and we were so happy to have someone we could trust fully. HIGHLY recommended!"
- Alejandra + Eugene
"While we were incredibly happy with the overall experience of our wedding, we believe that our DJ--Aria Melody---really was the piece de resistance of the event. Our family and friends danced from beginning to end of the reception, which is exactly what we had hoped. John was prepared with every song we requested, and put together a beautiful mix for our cocktail hour and reception. He was exceptionally professional and easy to work with...you would be lucky to land him as your wedding DJ."
- Erica + Walt
"John was great to work with and we were happy with how everything went!"
- Liz & Joe
"John was such a great part of our wedding!. He was such an easy vendor to plan and work with. We had been at a wedding two years back in which he was DJ'ing and we immediately thought of him when it came time to plan our own wedding. We liked the fact that he was the no gimmick DJ! No line dances, no lights, no fog machines, just great music for our guests to enjoy. John has a great website with a list and clips of songs to help you decide on songs for entrances, father/daughter, mother/son, cake cutting, etc. We found this really helpful since there were some parts of the night we weren't sure which direction to go. The music he played was just what we were hoping for. He had everybody out there dancing the entire night long, which is all I could ask for as a host. He even taped our speeches for us since we didn't have a videographer. Such a plus since we were going to ask a friend to do it! He was extremely responsive to all our emails and communication before the wedding and he came dressed for the occasion. I would highly recommend John to any bride looking for peace of mind and a good time!
- Carrie & Tom
"John was the best DJ ever! We were looking for someone who had similar taste in music to us and was not cheesy and he fit the bill. He totally mixed our eclectic music style well. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
- Colleen & Scott
"From the first time we met John he was extremely organized and professional. He even kept in touch with the venue manager and our videographer in the weeks before the wedding to make sure all set-up would go smoothly. He played the songs we wanted him to and none of the cheesy stuff we didn't want. He did a great job feeling out the crowd and the vibe, and choosing which songs to play accordingly. He also was perfect on the mic announcing the necessary wedding stuff (grand entrances, speeches, cake cutting, etc). After the wedding, John took the extra step of sending us video he took which was greatly appreciated since we didn't have the video back yet from the videographer and we were anxious to relive the night :)"
- Olivia & Garrett
"We had such a great time at our wedding and the music was exactly what we asked for. Our experience with Aria Meloday was fantastic and better than I would have expected. John was a professional and understood the style we were looking for and followed that through the whole night. Thank you John!"
- Jamie & Tim
"I just wanted to thank you profusely for the excellent job you did at our wedding. It's been two weeks now and my family and friends are still talking about how great the music was. It was definitely the stand-out highlight of our big day. People I have NEVER seen dance at a wedding before were on the dance floor all night long. Thanks again for delivering a packed dance floor and giving us an outlet to enjoy our wedding."
- Sarah & Nick
"John was such an AMAZING DJ! We just got back from our honeymoon and every one of our guests so far has raved about the music and how it was the most fun wedding they've ever been to! THANK YOU John for making our special day so special for everyone we love! We HIGHLY recommend John. He's very talented, professional, can read a crowd so well, had a great mix of current and old school dance music to keep everyone on their feet. Many of our savvy music friends were blown away by John's mixing skills. Our wedding was the first I've ever attended where everyone was dancing WITH us from the first dance to the last song. Thanks again John for providing an awesome celebration on the most memorable night of our lives :)
- Katy & Jeff
"Working with John was a pleasure. We wanted our party to be both sophisticated and fun, and John made sure to have everything we wanted. Our guests ranged in age from 7 to 81, and everyone's tastes were accommodated. Before the party, if I had a question, my emails were answered immediately. John even checked in with us right before the party, and made sure everything was ready. I recommend Aria Melody highly, and will definitely keep them in mind for future events!"
- Adele & Lance
"My husband and I went to a wedding of a former co-worker and John Sinclair was the DJ at her wedding. We remembered the music being great to dance to, and not overly loud so that we were able to have conversations with other guests at our table without difficulty. When my husband and I met John to discuss him being the DJ at our wedding, we got an excellent first impression of him. He was warm, professional and open to any suggestions we had. We received all positive feedback from our guests about the music at our wedding. We would highly recommend John to any couple looking for a DJ for their wedding. You will not be disappointed!"
- Lynn & Tim
"John was very helpful and responsive throughout the wedding planning process. He would check in to see how our song list was coming along and ask if we needed any help to choose songs. His website was very thorough and had a helpful list of songs to choose from for the ceremony, cake cutting, etc. We compiled a long list of our favorite songs for John to choose from. He selected really great songs from our list and he played a variety of genres so that everyone had a chance to dance. John is very professional and personable and I highly recommend him for any wedding or event!"
- Emily & Fabrizio
"John was awesome! He was entirely on top of all of the details, was very professional throughout and did a great job during the wedding itself. John cost a bit more than some other DJs we were considering but he was worth every penny."
- Ichiro & Jina
"John not only did a fabulous job at my wedding but also did a great job for both my brother's and my sister's weddings before mine! We are all slightly disappointed that I don't have any additional siblings to marry off just so we could have John DJ another family wedding! He was a great DJ who understood the mood and tempo of our family perfectly and kept everyone on the dance floor all night!"
- Nancy & Steve
"John - thank you so much for being a part of our wedding. We appreciate your guidance & making the music the one thing we never worried about. You did a great job, thanks for being a part of everything, we just couldn't have asked for a better night."
- Shirin & Ric
"We had John Sinclair for our wedding and he was so completely phenomenal!!! Pre-wedding he gave us a bunch of suggestions and help and was incredibly down to earth and cool about everything!! Our guests were dancing and commenting how great the music was the whole time!! It wasn't too loud so that you couldn't hear the person next to you if you wanted to talk. He only really spoke when we asked him to announce something and for the introductions. If you think most djs are cheeseballs and stupid (like we do), contact John since he's the complete opposite!!!"
- Julie & Matt
"I just wanted to thank you for for doing an amazing job at our wedding! Everyone was raving about how fun the music was and talking about how everyone danced the whole night. We had a great time!"
- Jessica & Justin
"John has a wonderful personality. We wanted a DJ who was classy and professional, but could read the crowd and play awesome music and he delivered! John is a cool, young guy and very easygoing, so professional and well put together."
- Timoria & Bob
"John - You were amazing and professional from beginning to end. The communication was seamless. You really put in the time and effort to make sure the music we wanted was played on our wedding day. We had a few schedule snafus on our wedding day (I'm sure you're used to them), but you were ever so gracious to stay late even though you had your own plans afterwards. We would not change a thing and could not have asked for a better DJ. No cheesiness, just plain good music blended perfectly. (Plus, our photographer even commented that he thought you were great.) Please don't hesitate to use us as a reference (and you can certainly use us more than one time, as we would be glad to share our fantastic experience)."
- Candice & Garrent
"We cannot say enough great things about John. From the moment we met we instantly knew that he was the right guy for the job. He was a pleasure to work with, be it his quick response to any question we had, or his great song suggestions, all the way through to the amazing job he did the day of. We are still getting compliments from our guests about what amazing music we had at our wedding. In fact, my cousin got married a few weeks after we did, and I had a few of my aunts pulling me aside to whisper in my ear that they wish that my DJ was working my cousins wedding! Looking back at the video & photos of the day, I was thrilled to see that he had everyone up on their feet for hours and hours! I would highly recommend John & Aria Melody to any couple looking for a professional, easy to work with, tasteful and enjoyable DJ that will have everyone up on their feet for the entire event."
- Dawn & Jen
"We loved the music from start to finish. John knew how to keep the dancing going with a great series of dance tunes and then would mix it up with a request or slow song when people needed a break! The transitions were seamless and everyone had a blast!"
- Caroline & Will
"John was a pleasure to work with and displayed himself in a most professional manner. He was so helpful from beginning to end. John guided us with selecting a nice mix of music for all to enjoy. We highly recommend Aria Melody Entertainment."
- Denise & Al
"Many times on our honeymoon, we turned to each other and simultaneously exclaimed, "John was the best!" We'd go through all the songs we remember him playing... and as we recalled new ones, we couldn't believe how on point he was with our taste in music. Within the first 30 minutes of the reception, three guests had asked us if we had created the playlist ourselves... our response, "No, John is just THAT good." Not only does he have great taste in music, but through only a couple casual, fun meetings before the wedding he was able to understand us and found a way to seemlessly incorporate music from classic rock to country to the Chargers theme song. :) He is obviously highly skilled in what he does, but he is also very fun and easy to work with. From reviewing very hard to pronounce bridal party names (that he got right!) to talking about international travels, we enjoyed all communication we had with John. There are no words for how highly we would recommend John and Aria Melody - if you are looking for a no frills DJ that focuses on playing good music and maintains an elegant and fun atmosphere, then you can't go wrong with John & Aria Melody DJ."
- Darcy & Brent
"John was great, very responsive, professional and he exceeded our expectations."
- Rebecca & Chris
"I cannot begin to thank you enough for doing such an amazing job with the music at our wedding! Everyone has been raving about the music and the dance floor was packed all night. I'm also planning on writing a separate review to rave about Aria Melody and post on all of the popular wedding websites - we couldn't be happier with the music from the night and I want to make sure everyone knows about it! Thank you again for everything - not only did we love the music but it was a blast working with you (and everyone at the wedding kept carrying on how much they loved the DJ!)
- Kimberly & Lou
"John was perfect from our first meeting to receiving this note for the survey. After many issues with vendors (and there were plenty), Aria Melody was one that I never worried about. John would take the initiative to reach out to me, something that was much appreciated as being a crazed bride, I would have forgotten to reach out to him. Everything was taken care of leading up to the event and during. As myMaitre D' was less than involved, the fact that John took control and handled the evening's flow without missing a beat, was frankly what helped us keep our sanity. John's ability to "read" our guests was phenomenal, easily adjusting the music to what the crowd responded to. I heard comments all night and since that our wedding was one of the most high-energy they'd seen - something I know that John was responsible for. If people are looking for a DJ to simply show up and play some music, look elsewhere. If you are looking for someone who will work in partnership throughout the planning and go above and beyond the typical "DJ" requirements - Aria Melody is your company. I would recommend Aria to anyone looking for a DJ who will help make the evening more special. I only hope that Drew and I host another event in the near future so we have the opportunity to work with John / Aria Melody again.
- Kate & Drew
"I thought you did a wonderful job of interpreting our list of preferred tracks but not being locked in by it. We asked that you read the room and give the people what they want and you did. We couldn't keep them off the dance floor."
- Sara & Dan
"Working with John was simply a pleasure. Once we met with him, asking Aria Melody to DJ our wedding was the easiest and probably the best decision we made in the entire wedding-planning process. We loved that you were willing to play as many special request songs as we wanted -- and that you didn't seem to mind us adding "must play!!" songs to the setlist even up to the day before the wedding! We loved your approach to the introductions, the toasts, etc. Most of all, you were so cool and calm when the unexpected happened -- and the unexpected elements, let me be clear, came all on our side, from our family members deciding on the spur of the moment to give speeches, etc -- that everything flowed along as if it had been planned that way. And with all of that, you STILL kept everyone from the grandparents to the our friends out on the dance floor the whole night long. Everything you did contributed to the wedding being fun and festive, but still elegant. We have been told over and over again by our guests that ours was the most enjoyable wedding they'd ever attended, and I attribute that to your musicianship, diplomacy and sense of style. We thank you so much!!"
- Jenifer & Andy
"I had a really great experience with John! He was mellow which made him really easy to deal with. At the wedding he was low key, and that was really important to us...and everyone noticed! Many of our guests actually said how much they enjoyed the music and appreciated a DJ that wasn't loud and obnoxious!!!"
- Dan & Constance
"John was great. Very easy to work with and dependable. Everyone loved the music and had a blast! Thanks again!!"
- Tara & Nick
"We couldn't have been happier with your services! It was exactly what we hoped for. You were professional, the music was just the right volume, you spoke just the right amount, and catered to our every request. Thank you so much!!"
- MaryBeth & Rit
"John always responded to my emails very quickly even in the last week before my wedding. After speaking or corresponding with him, I always felt that my wedding music was in good hands. And it was! On the day of he arrived early, had things set up and working with no problems and even accommodating a few on-the-fly requests. I would extend the highest recommendation of his services to any bride."
- Emily & Rob
"John did such a great job. We were really unsure about how to chose the correct music for our ceremony and he led us in the right direction. We were so excited for our music. You were such a professional at the wedding and everyone complimented us on the great music :)"
- Kristina & Noel
"We loved the fact that John was professional and easy-going. No hard sell, and he genuinely listened to what we wanted for our wedding reception. Our guests remarked that the music was "just right" - they enjoyed the selections and appreciated that the music added to the mood but did not drown out conversation. And of course, when it came to the dancing—there was a lot of dancing!"
- Annie & Chris
"We had a blast at our wedding - which is something that not a lot of couples can say! The music was awesome. The dance floor was packed. It's funny - there are some pictures of the reception room that we have seen and all of the tables are empty because everyone was up and dancing. All of our guests told us they had a great time. Your service was everything you said it would be, and more. We couldn't have been more happy!"
- Erica & Bobby
"The music flowed really well and John had everyone on the dance floor within 5 minutes of entering the ballroom! We had such a fantastic experience and are so happy to have had you with us to celebrate! We would highly recommend Aria Melody and it would be our pleasure to be a reference for you!"
- Sydne & Arden
"John did an excellent job with our wedding. The music selection was perfect and people have approached us since complementing the music played at the wedding. He definitely got everybody up and dancing well. Also, he did the perfect job of controlling the party's tempo while staying in the background and not interfering."
- Lara & Hal
"John was great! Very responsive to email, gave great suggestions when I couldn't decide on an entrance song and was able to find a copy of our first dance song without a problem (even though it was in Mandarin). He was very professional and even went over the pronunciations of every person's name in the bridal party. Great at reading the crowd! Everyone basically started dancing after the first course and never stopped. I do believe the venue basically kicked us out because we were having so much fun! Thank you for making our wedding day so much fun!"
- Jessie & Jonathan
"We, along with all of our guests, were not just impressed, but blown away, by your outstanding services! Nearly everyone at our wedding asked for your name because the music was simply awesome and never stopped, and your unobtrusiveness was just so...perfect. John was friendly, professional, and just plain caring when it came to what we were looking for in a wedding DJ. I was personally very impressed when I ran over with requests -- twice --and he immediately took care of them, even though he had already played one song. Although I'm sure every bride says this, our wedding was spectacular, due in large part to the wonderful services provided by Aria Melody. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! (We're actually sad not to have a reason not to speak with John again! We're trying to think of other reasons to hire a DJ again soon!)"
- Amanda & Steve
"I really cannot say enough good things about how wonderful you made our wedding! From start to finish everything was top notch! John was fantastic, professional and made our wedding spectacular. People were dancing to the dinner music and once the party got started not one person was sitting down. He made a great moment in our lives that much better! Every meeting leading up to the event he was accommodating and helpful- it only made our wedding day run that much smoother and that much more amazing! If you ever need to use us as a reference please do. So wonderful for sure."
- Amanda & Nick
"John was wonderful at our wedding. He went out of his way to help with things that were not really his responsibility. He was unassuming and fit all of our requests in seamlessly. Many thanks!"
- Leslie & Greg
"We, along with our guests, really thought that John did an excellent job in the music selections as well incorporating our specific requests...the bridal party intros, special dances, and music was excellent!"
- Michelle & Frankie
"We thought everything was perfect. John incorporated the music that we wanted and still kept everyone on the dance floor. I appreciated that he asked permission before playing a song he was unsure about. We received nothing but compliments about the music overall. In addition to the actual DJ-ing on the day of the wedding, John was easy and professional to work with in the planning stages. We always knew that we didn't have to worry because we could trust that the job would be done correctly, and that's really the best compliment I can think of to give to any wedding vendor."
- Nicole & Michael
"Remove the hors devours, the flowers, the cake (alright, maybe not the cake – that cake was great)…would anyone go home really feeling like something was missing? Take away the songs, however, and any event would grind to a halt. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for providing the most perfect soundtrack for our wedding. Every track blended seamlessly together, and complimented the festivities – and us – beautifully. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding!"
- Mina & Dan
"Their ability to take our musical taste and build on it was excellent!"
- Anca & Mike
"We booked Aria Melody because of John's personality, ability to work with people, and trustworthiness....our audience was a difficult one to read and John handled it well...there are so many things that can go wrong in a multifaceted wedding - which our was - and they did not go wrong. There were slideshows, salsa dances, interludes during the ceremony, different announcers and emcees, etc. - all went off without a hitch!"

"We wanted to give a quick thank you for being a apart of our wedding. We had such a great time and the day was better than we could have dreamed of. So many people commented on the great music! Thank you!"
- Michelle & Jay
"Thank you so much for making Amanda and Matt's wedding reception such a perfect event!! Your music was just right in every respect and your tasteful introductions and reminders kept everything on track. Everyone commented on how great the music sounded and on the wonderful selections. Amanda said the ending number "New York, New York" was absolutely perfect and sealed the whole afternoon for all of our out-of-town guests who went away loving the Big Apple! You were an absolute pleasure to work with from the start -- thoughtful, patient, yet full of great ideas. We will certainly recommend you to anyone we know who is planning a wedding reception!"
- Scott, father of the bride (Amanda & Matt)"Our experience with Aria Melody was phenomenal! From the first meeting to the last discussion, it was a pleasure! John worked closely with us, listened to all of our requests and provided feedback and suggestions! He completely understood the stress of planning a wedding- each time we spoke he was extremely patient, convenient and helpful! Everything was handled so professionally, yet friendly. Our wedding was a dream come true- the dance floor was filled from the moment the music began until the last lyric played. All of our must plays were incorporated wonderfully and each of John's own touches coincided perfectly with our taste! We've received so many compliments on choosing Aria Melody. They were definitely a touch of class; we couldn't have asked for better! PS- I thought it was wonderful that John briefly met with us prior to the start of the reception to go over any last minute thoughts/concerns." - Lisa & Louis "John Sinclair of Aria Melody was extremely professional and I would recommend him and Aria Melody any day. He made all the difference! He kept the flow of the wedding going smoothly, he played all the right songs...I would highly recommend him, my friends and family thought he was great too!" - Shaila & James "We had a good experience with Aria Melody...people were up dancing the whole time and so the event was definitely a success. Thanks for everything." - Jessica & Brian "John, you were wonderful to work with. Very professional and helpful with everything. We were very happy with our wedding and know that people had a lot of fun! We received so many compliments that how nice it was to be at a wedding where you can actually speak to the other guests at your table and where the DJ did not make himself the show. We still have people thanking us for that and for the variety of music you played. There was something for everyone there and the best of all was we did not have to worry about anything with you and we had a blast. Thanks again. I am more than happy again to serve as a reference if anyone wants to speak to any former clients of yours. - Maggie & Joe "We thought you did a great job! I just wish you could have suspended time so we could have processed more of it!!!:) Please send prospective brides my way. We would be happy to share my pleasant experience with them!" - Sue & Pete
"Everything was PERFECT. The music was so incredibly "us" that everyone assumed we had given you a long and detailed play list. Our friends were shocked when I explained we had asked for maybe 10 songs and the rest was up to you! Our friends and family all danced the whole night, and you even were able to mix in a few oddball requests (with my permission, of course, which really meant a lot to me that you took us into consideration) seamlessly. I plan on recommending you to everyone I know!" - Orly & Anton "Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our wedding day the most amazing day of our lives. It's been over a month since we got married and people are still raving about the music. You played so many that I wanted to hear, and then you played so many songs I didn't list but loved. The younger and the older crowd were dancing together, I couldn't believe it! People wanted to know if there were mixes with our music choices on it. My mom hasn't stop singing your praises because she said that she could talk over the music, instead of yell. I can not say enough wonderful things about you all. Thank you so much for making our day so memorable. I think we are you happiest clients ever!!" - Laurie & Deron "We had such an amazing time at our reception! The music that John played was a huge factor in the success of our party. He played almost all of our selections, no matter how obscure (ie. the cajun song that an uncle played the accordion along with) the song. Everyone was out of their seat dancing the entire time!" - Melissa & Michael "We received many sincere compliments from our guests about the quality of the music and how little talking was done by John. We all felt, guests included, that the music accompanied and complemented the reception. It did not over power the party or leave our guests w/ ringing ears. Fabulous service!" - Jill & Griffin "I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for the fantastic job you did on our wedding. We were very pleased with your professionalism and the music arrangement. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and made comments on how great the music was. That's really what we wanted...for people to have fun and dance and that is exactly how it turned out so thanks for contribution to our day. Mike and I both agree that we couldn't be happier with choosing Aria Melody. Great job and thank you so much!"
- Erika & Michael"I loved that you really "got" our tastes after reading through our song request sheet. That dinner music was amazing and, as for the rest of the night, I was dancing all night long, just as I had always hoped I would be." - Stephanie & Michael
"The music was fantastic! We received several comments during the wedding and after about how great the selection was. I loved how you incorporated our specific tastes in music and kept people on the dance floor all night long. Couldn't have asked for anything more." - Stacy & Michael
"Everything was wonderful - exactly as I wanted! And, for the music sections where I only provided a few specifics, you filled in perfectly. We were completely thrilled with all of the music, and so were our guests judging by how full the dance floor was all night. Thank you!!!" - Kathleen & Drew "John and Robyn were terrific- just what we had hoped for! Everyone loved the song selection and the dance floor was packed the entire night. Thank you so much!" - April & Kevin "John was amazing throughout the whole process. He responded to our e-mails quickly and was such a pleasure to work with. Also, Robyn was a great partner to John on our wedding day (even with our last minute changes to the order of announcements!). They were very flexible in staying & playing music a bit longer as a result of some timing issues (not their fault!) from the caterer and shuttle." - Deanna & Johnny
"John, brilliant work at our wedding - multiple guests commented and even asked for copies of the playlist. Not sure we have ever been to a wedding where people never stopped dancing - we are grateful it was our own. Thanks for all of your efforts and assurances and for making our day so seamless. All our best to you." - Thea & Ryan "These dudes are top-flight blokes. John and Paul Sinclair are brothers who own and operate Aria Melody from Hoboken and they are a real pair of gentlemen. Young, down to earth, friendly, helpful and willing to do everything in their power to make sure we got the music we wanted, down to the very last gypsy punk anthem. We're music fiends, as are a number of our closest friends, so we took it upon ourselves to create the entire play list and leave it up to John and Paul what the best order was for these songs to play in. It didn't matter that they'd never heard of half the bands on our list. They found the songs and gave 'em a listen and had them ready to go. And they were great with the announcements and looked quite natty in their suits and ties. People were shaking it out on the dance floor all night. And nary a smoke machine or chicken dance in sight." - Rachelle & Pete "John and Paul were both extremely professional and easy to deal with. Aria Melody did the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Everything went very smoothly - no problems at all. We had no complaints from guests about the music being too loud or not loud enough, and the music selection was great. We wanted a lot of fun dance music, and that is exactly what we got. Thanks!" - Krista & Len "Brian and I valued your work and professionalism, but also being fun and easy going to work with. Everyone at the wedding (including us:-) was more than thrilled with the selection. John went along with everything we wanted/didn't want. When the crowd seemed to get a little restless, he threw some things in to get them going. It was a perfect New Year's Eve wedding. People were dancing all night long. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!" - Melissa & Brian "I knew from the start that Aria Melody would be the perfect DJ for me, but I have to say that I was so incredibly happy with the wedding performance ESPECIALLY given our late arrival, the extremely varied musical tastes and most of all your ability to accommodate our spur of the moment decision to have the Grand March (which is the traditional Liberian dance) followed by Hava Nagila. I KNOW this was not something we expected to do or spoke about before hand so I was so appreciative of your commitment to giving us what we wanted! We all had a BLAST and absolutely had the best wedding we could have imagined!!"
- Sarah & Cassius
- Rebecca & Greg
"Aria Melody delivered exactly what they advertise: classy, fun entertainment. We couldn't have been happier."
- Denise & Bill"We were very pleased with how the night went. We really like how well our intro was. The song we picked definitely had to be timed and you did it perfectly. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks us. Thank you so much!" - Kathryn & Dan
"Everything was perfect. We gave them a huge list of 70+ songs to play and they played them and threw in a couple of their own. I know my family and his dance but I was SHOCKED that the dance floor was PACKED from the first song! My parents were thrilled that it was loud enough but not too loud and you could talk at the tables. They were really hard on us about the music really hoping it was good dancing music and the right level and they were thrilled at our selection of DJ! I really couldn't believe how perfect they were!!"
- Janine & Brian"Martin and I were so happy with John and Paul. They were extremely professional. They answered all of my questions, responded to emails in a timely manner, gave me a contract that was very clear and explaining all terms, had a good payment policy, and were very helpful with the music selection. They arrived early and everything seemed to run smoothly. I didn't notice anything so to me that means there were no problems. The announcements were also great, they said what needed to be said and that was it."
- Christine & Martin"We wanted a low key DJ who would not be too noticeable but classy and just play great music...very accommodating and wanting to make sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted. We gave them a very extensive play list of over 70 songs and they played every one! They were a pleasure to work with. We did have them make a couple of announcements when the little girls wanted to do a special dance and to announce the cake cutting and our first dance etc. and they did it perfectly and in a very classy manner. They are just genuinely nice, good guys!!!!!!! They did everything exactly as we wanted. We were extremely happy with them! They worked really well during the night with our maitre 'd, etc. I definitely recommend them!!! They were just perfect for what we wanted. For everyone who is using them now, I think you will be very happy!!!" - Dale & Paul "There isn't anything we would have changed as far as the music goes. You played the music we asked for, and didn't interrupt the day with added "commentary" to the music. Thank you for doing such an great job."
- Tracey & Cavrel"You both did a great job at our wedding...your announcements were very professional - not cheesy at all or sounding like the typical DJ. Just as important, your service before the wedding was phenomenal. The quick and professional communications was great, and you guys are both so easy to work with. We were looking for DJs to just play good music without being cheesy. And you were just that!" - Bernardette & Brian "Our experience with Aria Melody was absolutely spectacular from our first meeting right through to the end of the reception. John and Paul were very attentive to our pre-wedding questions and amazing during the reception with respect to timing of events, all music requests and artfully reading the crowd's mood. Aria Melody is a great company run by truly nice people and should there come a day when I need a DJ again, they are my #1 choice! Thank you for helping to make our wedding reception so wonderful!!"
- Christine & Jason“Thank you for the wonderful job you did at our wedding! Kevin & I couldn’t have been happier with how the music went during the reception! From old to young (even the priest who married us!), everyone danced the whole night as you saw. It was fantastic!”
- Katie & Kevin“Aria Melody was the perfect compliment to the evening! They were professional, right on with the music selections & always made us feel like everything was under control. The best part is they played all of our requests! We would definitely recommend them to our friends!”
- Laura & Denis"We were both so pleased with your service from the first time we spoke through the wedding. The comment we heard most often was "There was something for everyone." Everyone said you were great!"
