About DJ Zac Barr and Team
I am DJ Zac Barr and I have been entertaining people in the Greater Capital Region for over 30 years now.
I'm married to an amazing woman who waited SIXTEEN years for me to finally propose, and we've now been married just about seven years! Between us, we have 3 daughters, 1 son, and SIX absolutely amazing grandchildren. (I HIGHLY recommend grand-kids!!)
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 a "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!)
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, and in 1994 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.
Over the years, my style at weddings has evolved into what can best be described as "understated elegance." I strive with every action to ensure that the new Couple is always the focus of the attention. I think of every one of "my" Couples as my own children, and provide the same level of caring, planning and attention to detail that I would want for my own kids!
I work regularly to improve my craft and skills through networking and continuing education, workshops, one-on-one consultations with some of the area's (and nation's) top DJs as well as regular attendance at industry conventions. I am a proud member and past Board Member of the ADJA - Adirondack - Albany Region.
I am honored that I have been recognized for 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 for the first 12 years that it was in existence! (2020 was kind of a wash, right?) And now that the world has more or less "reset" itself, we've started the process all over again!
I work hard to invest myself in the community as well, donating my efforts to the Clever PinSpotters Bowling League (for differently-abled adults) and to the Crossroads Center for Children among others throughout the years. 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.
The DJ Zac Barr Team!
Gary started working Celebrations with me back in 2017, and from the start it seemed as though we'd been working together for years.
Of course, that COULD be because he is my son-in -law, and is Dad to two of my favorite people, my grandson Evan and granddaughter Mira! (The fact that he is my Daughter Ashley's loving husband doesn't hurt either!)
Gary is always there to make sure that I am keeping YOUR Celebration right on track, and seems to take a certain pleasure in pointing out things I may have missed (which are far and few between!)
He also provides impeccable timing on Custom Introductions, and helps to make the AudioMazing Love Story possible!
Anthony started working Celebrations with me in 2022, after I DJed HIS Wedding to his lovely Bride Ashley, along with a number of other family events. From our first event together, it was clear that this is a man who knows his stuff around a sound board!
I first met Anthony when he was a kid at his Mom's Wedding. That very day, he told me that I'd be doing HIS Wedding one day! Well, yup, he was right, and the rest is history!
Anthony is active Army Reserve and is proud to serve his country. And much like Gary, he seems to take inordinate pleasure from catching my mistakes before I make them!
His timing on Custom Introductions is impeccable, and he also helps to make the AudioMazing Love Story possible!
Dan started working with me in 2021, but is no stranger to the world of DJing. Along with helping to create amazing Celebrations of Love as a mobile DJ, Dan has worked in the radio broadcast field for over 25 years, and is presently the Chief Engineer for three radio stations.
Music and people have been Dan's passion for many years. He started out in his early years in the restaurant and hotel business and has worked as a Banquet Manager.
He loves spending time on the lake where he lives and enjoys traveling throughout our country: in his spare time he volunteers for a few different nonprofit organizations hoping to give back to our community.
Dan is a great addition to the DJ Zac Barr Team, and I know that he'll be an AMAZING addition to YOUR Celebration!
Glen started working with me in 2021 as well, but our friendship goes back MUCH further than that.
Glen is not only an outstanding DJ/Wedding Entertainer in his own right (he was the DJ at MY Wedding, which tells you just how much I trust him and his talent), but also plays the upright bass along with several other instruments!
As you can see, music is a very big part of Glen's life, but not as much as his two daughters and wife. Glen also works at the VA in Albany, NY as a surgical nurse!
You can count on Glen to assist me with ensuring that YOUR Celebration of Love is absolutely AMAZING!
