About

Jackie Kozak (DJ Jacster) is the Owner and primary DJ of Scaraoke Entertainment. Scaraoke covers a wide range of music genres such as top 40, rock, country, electronic, hip-hop, international, jazz, oldies, pop, and more. Through her 4 ongoing karaoke shows a week and DJ events every weekend, she is able to stay up-to-date and current on all the latest tracks. Jackie moved to Calgary in 2003 to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree. She is originally from St. John’s, Newfoundland, and was raised in Ontario. During her first year of University, she was hired as a karaoke host and had up to three shows a week. Two years later, she bought out the company who hired her and purchased all equipment and started Scaraoke Entertainment. 17 years later, DJ Jacster now operates full time (7 days a week) offering both karaoke & DJ'ing, with a team of amazing DJ's alongside her. Her best asset as an interactive DJ is being able to properly read a crowd and play exactly what they want to keep them dancing all night! Her range of events include: weddings, jack & jills, seasonal banquets, corporate & private parties, anniversaries, birthdays (both adults & children), graduations, fundraisers/charities, backyard BBQ's, and much more. Jackie is also an excellent public speaker and hires her Emcee skills for any events requiring a live, interactive host who is comfortable on a microphone. She is licenced and insured, and a proud member of the CPDJA (Canadian Professional Disc Jockey Association). She is also an award winner of the Business Excellence Award through the BBT (Bradford Board of Trade) for 2018, and recently won the Home Based Business Award at the 2019 BBT Gala.

    Simply the best ♥️

    Jackie (DJ Jacster/DJ Bunz 😉) made our day beyond perfect. From the lead up to the big day and all her help tailoring our ceremony music and organizing our itinerary, right up to the big day itself. Jackie was beyond entertaining as our MC and she handled our impromptu itinerary changes (that were unfortunately beyond our control) like an absolute dream. Our guests couldn’t stop raving about how incredible her stage presence and music selections were. My now husband and I truly can’t thank her enough for making our day truly the best day of our lives ♥️

    Couldn't have picked a better DJ!

    So incredibly happy that Jackie DJ'd our wedding. She is so easy to work and get along with. Our friends/family group listen to an array of tunes so it was hard for us to put together a play list. Jackie assured us she would find the right vibe for the crowd and she exceeded any expectation we had. She came early in the day to set up both ceremony and reception areas, she lent us a couple wireless mics and even had some cool lighting included in her pricing. We will 100% be reaching out to her for future events. Jackie's affordable and totally worth it - you'd be silly not to hire her!

    Awesome DJ and Great Party

    My wife and I were married in early May and had found Jackie's contact information online. We exchanged correspondence through email and met in person to go over details for the wedding. Jackie had great song suggestions and was thoroughly planned and organized for our special day. Her music playlist was a hit and we have already recommended her for a friends upcoming wedding. She is great if you're lucky enough to book her!

    Great Experience

    Jackie was great to work with for our wedding from start to finish. When we needed to postpone due to covid, she was willing to work with us on our new date. She went above and beyond to make sure the day went perfectly and was able to make game-time changes as our needs changed with Covid restrictions etc. Her DJ skills were great and she was able to keep the party going throughout the whole evening.

    Everyone loved the music!

    I booked Jackie after hearing about her from a mutual friend to act as the DJ & Emcee for my wedding. She was amazing to deal with from start to finish! Right from the get go she provided me with a form to complete that contained all aspects of the wedding from start to finish. It was super helpful as it included things I didn’t even think of! As well, she was very flexible with music choices and extremely responsive to emails. She was really helpful in suggesting music I was looking for to use for specific dances as well. She acted as our Emcee and my guests raved about how amazing and funny she was, she kept everyone laughing all night! As well as how amazing the music was, which kept everyone on the dance floor until the hall kicked us out! She even went above and beyond in finding a very unique and specific version of our first dance song. All in all I am so happy we hired Jackie for our big day! It would not have been so amazing without her!

    Great Wedding DJ

    Great Communication in regards to organizing for the big day. Jackie was a huge hit with our guest. I got many compliments. I was nervous since a few of my guests have DJ'd before themselves but she did not disappoint! I would highly recommend Jackie and would use her again in the future.

    Jackie was wonderful! She was so responsive to emails and game for any ideas that me or my MC threw at her. Instead of clinking glasses for kisses from the bride and groom, Jackie played along with our hoola hoop game providing great accompanying music! Guest requesting the bride and groom to kiss would get up and hoola hoop in front of the whole reception, while Jackie played music in the background. She played all of our requests requests, and kept the party going until the lights came on. Thanks for everything, Jackie!

    Jackie goes over and above, she really gets right into knowing her clients, and their needs and wants. I would highly recommend Jackie to everyone, If I hade to rate her work out of 10 I would give her a 20 she is that good. She made my night as odd as it was the most amazing night of our lives. Thank you Jackie you are the best.

    Jackie was fantastic to work with for our wedding! Leading up to our wedding we had numerous details to work out and Jackie was awesome with all of the them! Even details she wasn't as familiar with (ie a Hora - Jewish Dance) she was enthusiastic about and more than willing to help in any way possible! Throughout all our correspondences Jackie was professional and great with her communication. We trusted her tips and advice and it worked out beautifully for us!

    Day of - Jackie was there early organizing everything and making sure everything was great for our special day! We had a complicated ceremony with many readers, singers, multiple song changes...etc, and Jackie made sure everything ran smoothly!

    At our reception the dance floor was packed all night! All our friends and family were out dancing and kept complementing the playlist!

    Jackie was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend to other couples considering DJs for their wedding.

    Thank you so much Jackie!
