I am DJ Zac Barr and I have been entertaining people in the Greater Capital region for over 25 years now.
I am married to an amazing woman who waited SIXTEEN years for me to finally propose, and we've now been married just over a year! Between us, we have 3 daughters and 1 son, and two absolutely amazing grandchildren (I HIGHLY recommend grandkids!!)
In the photo above, you will find (from left to right), Anne, James, my beautiful wife Jodi, yours truly, Ashley and Chelsea!
Jodi and I love traveling and the beach, and personally, I am "comfort-foodie!" (That's someone who will drive twenty miles out of their way to get that perfect macaroni and cheese, or a deep-fried hot dog!)
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.
It was in 1994 that I struck out on my own with the philosophy of providing outstanding Disc Jockey/Entertainment services at a reasonable price, specializing in "family-oriented" entertainment for people of all ages. I have spent the last 25-plus years entertaining people at thousands of weddings, reunions and other family events, as well as DJing at various clubs and bars in the
I have also been a featured performer at many of the area's finest camping resorts. In 2019, I celebrated my 22nd consecutive year (and 110th event) at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in North Hudson, NY. At campgrounds and other "family-oriented" events I am also well known for my "silly-set" and for my interaction with the crowd.
As I have grown, my style at weddings can best be described as "understated elegance." I strive with every action to ensure that the new Couple are always the focus of the attention. With my experience and talent, I am your DJ choice for most any event. I work regularly to improve my craft and skills through networking and continuing education, workshops and one-on-one consultations with some of the area's (and nation's) top DJs and regular attendance at industry conventions every year. I am a proud member and Board Member of the ADJA - Adirondack - Albany Region.
I am honored that I have been recognized for the past 12 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 12 years that it has been in existence!
I work hard to invest myself in the community as well. I have also donated my efforts to the Alyssa Bouchey Scholarship Fund, to the Clever PinSpotters Bowling League (for differently-abled adults) 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 for your protection. If you have any questions or concerns, I am never further than a phone call, text 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 86,000 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.
Allow me to be a part of YOUR Celebration of Love! Call or text me today at (518) 860-3907 or email me at Zac@DJZacBarr.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
