At only 8 years old, DJ Skar began spinning records in his parent's basement in Maywood, Ill. Skar took his skills on the road during his time in the Air Force, spinning in clubs in Germany, Italy, and Israel. Upon returning to Chicago, he developed a following and has spun records at the Funky Buddha Lounge, Butterfly Social Club, Simone's Bar, Maria's Community Bar, Harbee's Liquors & Tavern, Morgan's Bar, Blitz Bar, Lava Lounge, and The Horseman among others. His long-standing residency at Simone's helped to cement the bar as a place to go for excellent music.
In 2014, DJ Skar relocated with his family to Vermont. His weekly radio show, Live & Direct with DJ Skar on WOOL-FM Black Sheep Radio, has quickly become a fan favorite in New England.
