DJ Bear Cole

Experience Makes A Difference

DJ Bear Cole has worked as a Record Selector for decades.

Hello I am DJ Bear Cole. I have experience spinning 2,550+ capacity night clubs as a resident, and event experience. As an entertainer I have always been known as a crowd reader with an amazingly deep knowledge of multiple genres and generations of music. I can chill out a lounge and create atmosphere, or create killer energy to pack a dance floor for hours. If you need dance, funk, hip-hop, latin, old school, soul, rock, country, trap, chill, or deep house I can spin it all. I am known for mixing multiple genres and decades into one cohesive party rocking set.


Bear Gallagher-Cole aka DJ Bear Cole is based out of Flagstaff Arizona. He has worked countless venues and events, and curates playlists and a podcast online. He is a professional entertainer and consultant, meaning that he provides a diverse suite of services to his clients. DJ Bear Cole has degrees in Audio Engineering, Web & Graphic Design, and has worked extensively in I.T., Marketing, and Promotions. This allows him to bring more to events than just a hard drive full of music.


What People Have To Say About DJ Bear Cole

DJ Bear is a music lifer and total pro! His knowledge of tracks spans decades and a wide variety of genres. Over a decade of club, events, and music production work had given him a fine tuned eye for reading any crowd. I’ve personally referred him to many clients looking for a top notch DJ experience, and have never had anything but rave reviews post-event. He’s got the technical expertise to do a variety of complex performance transitions, and a huge library with something for everybody. Most importantly he’s a super nice and relatable person who will fit right in at your event. Definitely would highly recommend Bear to anyone for their next event!
