I am DJ Zac Barr and I have been entertaining people in the Greater Capital region for over 23 years now. I got my start in 1988 singing and DJing in campgrounds and night clubs in the Albany/Saratoga area.
In 1992, I joined forces with another area DJ to form AlterEgo Productions, a DJ/Karaoke company which specialized in offering the very best of Karaoke in the Capital Region.
In 1994, I struck out on my own with the philosophy of providing outstanding Disc Jockey services at a reasonable price, specializing in "family-oriented" entertainment for people of all ages. I have spent the last 20-plus years entertaining people at thousands of weddings, reunions and other family events, and DJing at various clubs and bars in the
I have also been a featured performer at many of the area's finest camping resorts. Among the campgrounds where I have performed throughout the years are: Alpine Lake Camping Resort, Beaver Spring Lake Campground, Camp Waubeeka Family Campground, Cold Brook Campsites, Frosty Acres Campground, Jellystone at Paradise Pines, Lake George/Schroon Valley Resort, Lake George Escape and McConchie's Heritage Acres. At campgrounds and other "family-oriented" events I am also well known for my "silly-set" and for my interaction with the crowd.
My style at weddings can best be described as "understated elegance." I strive with every action to ensure that the bride and groom (but especially the bride!) are always the focus of the attention. With my experience and talent, I am your DJ choice for any event. I work regularly to improve my craft and skills through networking with some of the area's (and nation's) top DJs and regular attendance at industry conventions every year. I am a proud member of the ADJA - Adirondack - Albany Region.
I am honored that I have been recognized for the past 8 consecutive years by Martha Stewart's WeddingWire.com as one of the top 5% of Wedding Entertainers in the nation. I am the ONLY Entertainer in the Capital Region to have won this honor all 8 years that it has been in existence!
I work hard to invest myself in the community as well. I have worked with the Neighborhood Watch groups of Cohoes, donating my DJ services for their annual National Night Out event. I have also donated my efforts to the Alyssa Bouchey Scholarship Fund, to the Cohoes Girls Softball League and to the Crossroads Center for Children among others. It is a pleasure and honor to donate my time to causes that are close to my heart and the hearts of the community around me.
I go out of my way to be your full service DJ choice and will be there to guide you through every aspect of your event. I work with all of your event vendors to ensure that no detail is missed! I also carry a million dollar liability insurance policy for your protection. If you have any questions or concerns, I am never further than a phone call or email away.
You never have to worry about music being played that might embarrass you or your guests, either. All of my new music is obtained through a weekly music subscription service that provides music to radio stations throughout the U.S., so every song is edited to be "broadcast safe." What you will hear is good, family-oriented music from the 30's right through today's top hits!
All of my music is computer and HDD based and is databased for easy reference. With over 38,000 titles updated weekly, you can be sure that I will have something for everyone! Every song is played on professional disc jockey equipment, and you'll be listening to it played through the Bose L1 speaker system for unparalleled sound quality.
