Born and raised in Detroit Michigan; the home of Motown Music taught DJ Zinn an appreciation for all genres of music. Zinn’s love of music and friendly mid-west demeanor landed him in the DJ booth at Maui’s finest club of its day “Maui Brews” in 1998 with his trainer and mentor DJ Alek; himself voted “Maui DJ of the year 2001 – Maui Time Magazine”. It was here that Zinn soaked up the lessons on technical DJ skills (yes, he started with vinyl), as well as reading the crowd and dance floor rotation. “I remember Alek had me running the lights and taking notes about what he played and the effect it had on the entire club,” says Zinn. As Zinn’s skill level grew, he would be asked to pick and mix the next song, then it was an entire genre specific set and eventually, Zinn earned his own residence night. “I remember the praise I received after one particularly smooth and timely mix into Prince’s Erotic City; Alek said, ‘Zinn, you are ready!’”
With his mentor’s retirement in 2001, DJ Zinn took the reigns as Maui Brews primary resident DJ and there was no looking back. Numerous requests from club-goers for DJ Zinn’s personal touch at local weddings and events led to the purchase of his state of the art professional mobile DJ equipment and Earful Productions was born. DJ Zinn says that after well over a decade of mobile DJ work he still treats every event like it is his first!
“I just love to share my Aloha with people and there is no better way I can think of than to make them smile and dance,” says Zinn.

Even with his busy schedule, DJ Zinn says “My customers time is just as valuable as mine,” and it is with this motto that he handles requests for his services. Zinn is known for very prompt replies to inquiries and spending a little bit of time getting to know his customer, many of whom he calls friends to this day.
