Music is everything.
It’s your history, your identity and your joy. It’s what moves you on the dance floor and what moves you to tears.
Quite simply: it’s the most important decision you’ll make at your wedding.

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'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
Team of All Ears DJ
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.
