All Ears DJ gets it. You don’t want a cheesy wedding DJ in a ruffled tuxedo playing the Chicken Dance at your reception! The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. All Ears DJ will rock your wedding or event with music and personality that exudes good taste. They specialize in custom playlists, classy MC’ing, and can even play live acoustic music for your ceremony.
All Ears DJ doesn’t offer “four hour” quotes like many other DJs because they believe each wedding should be a 20+ hour commitment. Their all-inclusive quotes range from $1250 to $1750, depending on whether they’re involved with your ceremony and/or playing live acoustic music in addition to DJ’ing.
Prices and/or Package Info
Wedding packages start at $1500 for a four-hour reception.

“Being that they’re actual musicians who have a wealth of experience creating music, they know the power that music can have on an event unlike some DJs who sort of ‘fake it’.”
“He kept the crowd up and energized, all the while staying within the musical taste that my wife and I prefer.”
“Richard is a brilliant musician and those skills fit in perfectly for any wedding.”
“We worked one-on-one with Richard to come up with the music we wanted to hear during our wedding and reception; he was extremely flexible and suggestive as to how the reception should flow.”
“Richard was always very quick to respond and was on time and professional. He made the whole process very easy.”
“We had a very extensive list of songs we definitely wanted to hear and songs we didn’t and he did a really good job of incorporating songs so that the entire night had energy.”
