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. I am best known for mixing diverse genres and time frames of music into one cohesive dance floor rocking set.

I consider myself a Record Selector, Open Format DJ, or what I like to call a Shuffle Play DJ. This means I play like someone’s record collection, iTunes, or Spotify would if you put it on shuffle. A mix of multiple genres, tastes, artists, and styles.

We used the services of Peaks ProEvent for our ceremony music, lighting, sound, and reception entertainment. Bear’s service was amazing!!! We met with him in advance and explained our plan for the service and style for the reception. We had so many complement us on the music and how fitting it was for us and for our guests!! During the ceremony we had my Mother-in-law sing and she had a sound check with Bear the day of — he adjusted for her vocal power and the sound and song were amazing!! He also maintained a great flow for the evening and accommodated any of our ad hoc adjustments with easy! A true professional!! We also had extra lighting for our outdoor tent and it was amazing!!
