About

On WeddingWire since 2019

My love for beats and rhythms since a young age led me to start my DJ journey with two turntables, a mixer, and some vinyl records. I strengthened my skills at teen dances, before getting gigs at birthday parties and under-21 nightclubs. I was self-taught, often using online tutorials to hone my skills.

During my college days, I balanced my studies with DJing at parties and bars, making the most of the lively party scene at my university. Post graduation, I shifted to Pittsburgh to pursue DJing full time.

During an internship at Clear Channel Radio, I gained valuable insights into audio production and live show production. This experience further expanded when I worked at several radio stations, before I decided to venture into new projects. I stayed connected with the nightclub scene throughout, learning important skills from seasoned DJs and earning the Best Nightclub DJ accolade from the City Paper.

Finding a gap in the wedding DJ scene, I translated my club DJ energy to weddings and founded "Modern Era Weddings." My company gained recognition in the Knot's Hall of Fame, although I later sold it to DJ Mike Willis and manage my gigs independently now.

Party Master.

After I booked our venue and had a date - Bill Bara was my first booked vendor. He did not disappoint. 10/10 would recommend over and over again. He was very high energy, passionate, fun and his LED Mask was a big hit. He kept the party going all night long - his mixing of music and transitions were spot on. Everyone was raving about him all night and he is still what everyone is bringing out days later after our wedding. He was so easy to work with and his web portal was easy to use and customize. High quality sound and entertainment. I would recommend Bill over and over again. He is unlike any other DJ out there - he is a must book, and if you don't book him you are doing it wrong.

Fantastic! Highly recommend booking Bill for all your events. Thoughtful, responsive, organized, and ready to step in wherever needed.

We highly recommend booking Bill for your next event! He keeps the pulse on the dance floor the entire night—smoothly transitioning from song to song and reading the room so your guests stay entertained. I’m addition to keeping the dance floor packed, Bill is extremely organized, responsive, and prepared. I never for a second leading up to the event had to worry about this vendor. I felt confident that he had it under control—something you’ll be grateful for the week of your event when stress levels are high. On the day of the event, Bill is also more than just a typical day. He worked with our wedding coordinator to keep the day moving, didn’t miss a beat on announcements, and seamlessly stepped in when other vendors dropped the ball. We are so happy with the work Bill did DJing our wedding. Our only regret is that we can’t get married every weekend and book him again and again!

Highly Recommend!

By far the best wedding DJ I have experienced! Countless guests have said truthfully that it was the best wedding they have been to, and Bill played a huge part in that. It was the most consistently packed dance floor I have seen at a wedding ever, of all ages. Our legs were cramped up the next day from dancing :-) He also made sure all of the formalities at the event ran smoothly, do not discount the value of that. Bill also really seemed to have fun, he was engaged with the crowd, and people took notice to that. It was a perfect night, can't recommend him enough.
