All Ears DJ is a Hall-of-Fame vendor on The Knot that has rocked more than 1000 weddings for a decade running. All Ears is a boutique service targeted towards clients with a passion for music that extends way beyond typical “wedding music” - you won't find any Chicken Dances here. Every song we spin has to pass a series of rigorous tests to answer one question: IS IT A BANGER? All of our DJs are mixologists with tip-top skills. We match beats to create seamless transitions between tracks so that the beat never drops. Some of us are also singer/guitarists who can perform live acoustic music for ceremony and cocktail hour.
All Ears now offers complete MICROWEDDING packages to take the stress off planning in pandemic times. Let us help guide you to a plan to make it work! Also yes... we are very much still booking macroweddings and we are 100% flexible on date changes.
Additionally, All Ears can make all your photobooth dreams come true. A joint creation of Jalyn DeBarge (Oakland, CA) and husband Richard Gintowt (All Ears DJ), the Funktown Photobooth is centered around a magic animated mirror with a cheeky personality. Once the countdown begins, the mirror captures its guests’ smiles and prints out an iconic image for them to take home. Feeling flossy? Post your photos directly to Instagram or receive them via text message. The Funktown Photobooth comes with a curated selection of funky props: you won’t find any cheesy feather boas and fedoras here. Additionally, our studio lighting is 24k magic so you’ll look fly on the socials.
Last but not least, Donovan Jugarap is our amazing staff videographer. Donovan filmed our wedding and we think he should film yours too! He comes correct with all the freshest gear and a keen cinematographer's eye. Donovan approaches weddings as a documentarian, sidestepping cliches and capturing once-in-a-lifetime moments as an observer.
All Ears DJs post hella live mixes at mixcloud.com/allearsdj. Want a Motown mood? Cue up the Marvin Gaye. Looking for some '80s flair? Cue Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody". Does a '90s theme suit you? Salt-n-Pepa will push it real good. All about that Bay Life? Let's guest list Too Short and E-40...
Most importantly, All Ears DJs are all about spinning the tunes that YOU want to hear. We collaborate with you to create a completely unique playlist. By the time we get to your wedding, we'll already have your favorite music cued up.

The best decision we made hands down.
WOW! We had Colin do acoustic for the ceremony and cocktail hour, then DJ for the wedding, and we couldn't have chosen anyone better. Colin learned new songs for our ceremony, and listened to our feedback for every song he played at the reception. We cannot express enough the top-notch professionalism, the superior communication, and overall incredible experience we had because we used a fantastic artist like Colin through All Ears DJ. We wouldn't change a thing. Thank you!Sent on 03/20/2020
All Ears DJ & Events's reply:Lucas you're the man! Be sure to check out Colin's new record with his band The Roseline! It comes out April 3 and maybe if it gets some traction he can start playing some of his own songs at weddings in addition to his pitch-perfect covers :)

Mike cochran was an amazing dj for our wedding. From ceremony to dinner to reception he listened to what we wanted and went above that. We never had an empty dance floor. He played all of our must play songs and listened to the crowd to create an amazing playlist that covered the spread of ages.Sent on 09/21/2019

From the moment I first spoke with Richard on the phone, I could tell his musical preferences meshed well with ours. He played a great mix of old-school funk and current hits that had our whole crowd dancing, from older aunts and uncles to our younger friends. We got compliments throughout the night on how great the music was! Richard was also laid-back, professional, and easy to work with, doing just the right amount of emcee-ing without being cheesy :) We hired the mirrorbooth through All Ears DJ as well, staffed by Richard's wife, Jalyn. Our guests loved it, lining up for photos all night. My husband and I love having copies of those mementos now in our shared home! Finally, both Richard and Jalyn were lovely people, and saying goodbye when they left felt like saying goodbye to our guests. I strongly recommend All Ears DJ if you want an awesome party!Sent on 11/24/2019

Richard Gintowt & Jalyn DeBarge
All Ears is co-owned by married couple Richard Gintowt and Jalyn DeBarge. Richard is a DJ and musician based in Oakland who has performed at more than 500 weddings. He founded All Ears DJ in 2010 to offer an alternative to cheesy wedding DJs and share great music with good people who let loose on the dance floor. In addition to DJing your reception, Richard can perform live acoustic music for ceremonies and cocktail hours. Jalyn helms the Funktown Photobooth: the Bay Area's swaggiest photobooth experience. She also sings and plays ukelele and can join Richard for an acoustic duo cocktail hour!
Superstar wedding DJ (& SO much MORE!). Can you imagine being truly serenaded on your wedding day? This company brings that personal touch with epic class and taste!
Richard is a top notch DJ. I love learning that he will be the DJ at weddings I am photographing. Not only do I know that I will love the music he plays, but I love taking advantage of his awesome dancefloor lights which add awesome ambiance to wedding dancefloor photos! I highly recommend All Ears Mobile DJ!
We had Richard DJ at a non-wedding outdoor event in June. Despite the blistering heat, Richard was professional and never complained once. He played an eclectic mix of music, not your typical wedding fare, and we received many compliments on our choice of DJ. I would recommend him to any bride or anyone planning an event where a DJ is needed.
