DJ Rhett Rocks Monday Night 50th Birthday Bash

 
An important part about being a good DJ is not necessarily playing what you want to hear, but about what the crowd wants to hear. At Kanth’s 50th birthday party, I lucked out and we got both. As guests continued to arrive to Lola’s Room at McMenamins Crystal Ballroom in Downtown Portland on November 21, 2011, we played some medium tempo music from from all eras and genres. It wasn’t too long before I realized that I was DJing for a pretty hip, dance-loving crowd. I could see and feel the guests reacting positively to Motown, Retro and some of the current hits by today’s hot music artists.
 
After a quick buffet dinner and brief toasts by family and friends, we sped the music up a bit. I continued to switch the music up now and then for the range of guests. Since Kanth and several of his family members have origins from India, we played some requested Bollywood music that got guests from all backgrounds on the dance floor as well. However, around halfway into the party, the group that controlled the dance floor wanted to hear music from artist like Black Eyed Peas, Foster the People, Rihanna, Flo Rida and other current, hot music. It was a great night. I almost forgot it was a Monday.
 
You couldn’t tell Kanth turned 50 years of age. I guess music and fun really keeps you young. Happy Birthday Kanth!! -Rhett

Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah Celebration At The Cleaners

 
Since Steve Marker, our most popular Bar Mitzvah DJ, wasn’t scheduled to come in from out of town this weekend, I was called in for this special party. I was ready. Bar Mitzvah celebrations are among my favorite events to perform.  The friends and family in the community are always nice and ready to have a good time. I was looking forward to Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah. The celebration took place at “The Cleaners”, the event space owned by Ace Hotel in Downtown Portland. Its an intimate yet open space with large windows. Contemporary but classy with original fixtures from the historic building. A very nice venue for a coming-of-age event.
 
As our start time of 7pm rolled closer I got together with Daniel to get some info for a game called “Who Knows Daniel the Best?” Its a fun game that I like to play with a young guest of honor and his or her friends. After had our winner, we had got ready for the Slow Ball, a nice way to get everyone to start dancing on the dance floor. After our slow dance, we sped things up with hot music from today including Usher, Far East Movement, Foster the People and LMFAO. We also played some Dubstep music, a popular and upcoming genre that is a favorite for Daniel and some of his friends. And of course, we couldn’t forget the Hora. The party lifted Daniel on a chair which marks this special day of celebration.
 
It was a great party and we had a blast! Thanks choosing PRO DJs.  Mazel Tov Daniel!
 

Wedding DJ Performs On A Hot Day In Dallas… Oregon

 
The venue that Chrissy and Rich chose for their wedding reception was absolutely beautiful. A classy gem located in rustic Dallas, Oregon about 90 minutes south of Portland. It was also another hot day in Oregon with temperatures in the mid-90’s so the air-conditioned room kept everyone comfortable.
 
The ceremony took place just a couple blocks from the reception venue so most guests walked over as soon as it was over. For the cocktail hour, guests mingled with music from the 40’s and 50’s with artists including Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Tony Bennett. I announced the Bridal Party and Bride and Groom grand entrance as they made their way down the main staircase. Appetizers were served and the drinks were flowing. Right before dinner, Chrissy’s sister played a surprise slideshow complete with soundtrack that we played through our sound system. It was moving and put several guests to tears including the bride and groom. Dinner was served family style at the tables and as soon as dinner was done we were ready for toasts.
 
After the toasts, we went straight into the first dance, followed by a dance with Chrissy and her father and Rich with his step-mom and birth mom. Right after, we opened up the dance floor and the celebration was underway right away. Guests danced to everything from the Beatles to Black Eyed Peas. Some other requests that got the dance floor packed were music from Shania Twain, Backstreet Boys, Will Smith…and even the Hokey Pokey was a requested hit! The party was so fun, we kept it going for an extra hour.
 
Time flies when you’re having fun and Chrissy and Rich’s wedding celebration went fast. Thank you for choosing PRO DJs to be a part of your special day.
 
Congratulations to Christina and Richard Brunick! -Rhett

“Very satisfied with Rhett’s customer service. I was two hours late for the wedding which pushed everything else back! Rhett was able to accomodate the time changes and allow the evening to flow gracefully. If it wasn’t for his help, I may have forgotten to cut the cake! I was too busy having a good time that I almost forgot! Thanks, Rhett :)” -Christina Brunick

Jim & Nicole’s September Wedding Celebration

 
It is hot days like these that makes it nice to DJ inside in a cool, air conditioned room. However, by the end of the night we turned up the heat inside with music and dancing for a wedding celebration to remember.
 
The ceremony got finished a little early at another location and guests started to arrive about 30 minutes earlier than expected. Good thing I came early and got set up fast. I had the cocktail music ready to greet them at the door. Music as requested from the 40’s and 50’s included some Motown, Jazz, Blues and Soul. When Jim and Nicole finally arrived for their grand entrance, there were loud cheers from guests. They are loved. Caterers opened up the buffet soon after and we slowed the music down a bit for dinner. After toasts and cutting of the cake, everyone was ready to party.
 
Some highlights:
 
First Dance: Frank Sinatra – Fly Me to the Moon
Father/Daughter Dance: Louis Armstrong – What A Wonderful World
Mother/Son Dance: Ozzy Osborne – Mama, I’m Comin’ Home
 
Then it was time to dance and open up the dance floor to all. Requests for Michael Jackson, Digital Underground and Kool & the Gang kept the party jumping.
 
It was a fun celebration and we were honored to be a part of it. Congratulations Jim & Nicole!!! Rhett
