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 with a third on the way (I HIGHLY recommend grandkids!!)
In 1992, I formed 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 changed direction with the philosophy of providing outstanding Disc Jockey/Entertainment services, 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, most recently adding Bar and Bat Mitzvahs to my resume!
I have also been a featured performer at many of the area’s finest camping resorts. In 2017, I celebrated my 20th consecutive year (and 100th event) at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park in North Hudson, NY. At campgrounds and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs I am also well known for my “silly-set” and for my team’s interaction with the crowd.
As I have grown, my “style” at Celebrations of Life can best be described as “fun while working to make sure that everyone from young to the young-at-heart are included!” Along with Beau Conley from “Make You Move, Ent.” we strive with every action to ensure that the Guest of Honor is always the focus of the attention. With our experience (over 2,500 events and counting) and talent, we are your Entertainment choice for your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah!
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 10 consecutive years by Martha Stewart’s WeddingWire.com as one of the top 5% of Entertainers in the nation. I am the ONLY Entertainer in the Capital Region to have won this honor all 10 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 SICM Food Pantry, to the Clever PinSpotters Bowling League (for differently-abled adults) and especially 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, 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 50’s right through today’s top hits!
With over 48,000 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 Life! Call or text me today at (518) 860-3907 or email me at Zac@DJZacBarr.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
