Vinyl is Aaron’s drug of choice and he’s an addict: funk, soul, house, disco, indie, pop, hip-hop… it’s all in the mix!

Aaron brings 15 years of DJ experience to the table with supremely fresh mixing and beatmatching skills. Gasp as he seamlessly crossfades from the Beatles to Biggie Smalls!

“This review is long overdue! Aaron DJ'd our home wedding last September and we could not have been happier with how everything turned out. During the first phone call, he totally got our vibe. We didn't want anything cheesy, we just wanted people to have a fun time without sticking to only top 40. We kicked off the night with David Bowie's "Let's Dance" and ended the night with LCD Soundsystem's "Dance yourself Clean." I requested "I Believe In a Thing Called Love" by The Darkness and that was hysterical-- people had a lot of fun letting loose. The whole evening went off without a hitch and all of our guests had a blast. We would highly recommend All Ears DJ, and if you're lucky enough to get to work with Aaron, you're in great hands.” - Chalsea N., 9-8-18
"My wife and I hired Aaron to DJ our wedding just a month ago, and we're still on cloud 9 just thinking about it! Aaron made the entire process extremely simple and stress free. Prior to the wedding, he helped guide us through how the night should go, including some sample playlists to give us an idea of what he's thinking about playing. We provided a long list of songs we'd like to hear, and Aaron was a master in putting together a fantastic series of tunes to keep the party going! The night of, Aaron arrived with everything needed - all we had to provide was a table and an outlet. I was amazed by Aaron's ability to play songs that were well known across the multiple generations on the dance floor, while managing to avoid the clichés of "Shout" and other standard wedding party tunes. Our guests gave many compliments following the party regarding how much they enjoyed the music and dancing. We're so happy with our decision to hire him and would wholeheartedly recommend his services." - Brett R., San Francisco
