Bar Mitzvahs

Heshy and David’s MJCC Bar Mitzvah Party

 
It was officially Heshy’s MJCC Bar Mitzvah party on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Mittleman Jewish Community Center in Southwest Portland, but he wanted his good friend David, who was also having a birthday the same week, to be a part of his celebration.
 
As guests arrived, I played a variety of background music hits from artists such as OneRepublic, Adele and Imagine Dragons. There was much to do for the kids in the lobby area, including a mechanical bull and balloon clown.

The photo booth was conveniently located next to the dance floor in the main ballroom. After dinner, I got the dance floor going for generation next with many of the latest hits, including Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Humble,’ ‘Passion Fruit’ from Heshy’s favorite artist Drake and the hot new track ‘Mi Gente’ from J Balvin and Willy William. A short time later the adults joined in as we launched into ‘The Hora’ and dual chair raising.

Salem Bar Mitzvah DJ At Convention Center

The room handled the 100+ guests comfortably for dinner and dancing, but there wasn’t enough room for some of the games. I noticed another (empty) room adjacent to this one and checked to see if we could use it temporarily. And so all the kids joined me there for rousing versions of Coke & Pepsi and Running Tic Tac Toe.
 
We then returned to the main ballroom for one more game that the parents could watch and be involved with, a scavenger hunt, before opening the dance floor with ‘The Hora’ and chair raising.

Nathan’s family really wanted their guests to dance and posted signs around the room encourging everyone to participate.

There was no need to worry though as most everyone joined in the fun and danced to a variety of fun hit music… everything from ‘Happy’ and ‘Uptown Funk’ to ‘Play That Funky Music’ and the ‘Cha Cha Slide’. Nathan loves to rock though and his requests for Green Day and Fall Out Boy were well received, plus his metal-loving grandmother was super excited to dance to Judas Priest’s ‘Livin’ After Midnight’ 🙂

There was a lot of energy in the room from the beginning and the kids had fun with the ice breaker gold coin table game I played with them during dinner. More games followed: including ‘Name That Tune’ and David’s request for ‘Coke & Pepsi.’ The photo booth adjacent to the dance floor was also a big hit.
 
After they had a chance to eat, the adults joined in for ‘The Hora’ and chair raising.

Baseball Theme Bar Mitzvah Party At MJCC

 
With all the snow shutting down the city much of the week, there was concern about travel leading up to Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah Party, but most everyone made it safely to the Mittleman Jewish Community Center on Saturday, January 14, 2016.

As guests arrived, I played a variety of background music hits from artists such as OneRepublic, Twenty One Pilots and Maccabeats. The buffet opened a short time later and it didn’t take long before the kids were ready to get active with the many games planned.
 
Daniel is a big baseball fan (he wore a white yamaka with the red baseball stitch lines), so this was a great opportunity to play ‘pass the ball’… in this case, it was baseball vs. Daniel’s second favorite sport, basketball. Several rounds of the scavenger hunt followed and then the adults joined in as we launched into ‘The Hora’ and chair raising.

The dance floor was busy for a solid hour before the adults began to tucker out a little. The kids then returned for the limbo and more games. Daniel wasn’t much into dancing and requested mostly classic rock artists such as AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses, so the final hour was dedicated to his favorites.

Ike’s New Year’s Eve Portland Bar Mitzvah Bash

 
Portland Bar Mitzvah DJ Rich Ellis performed at Ike’s Bar Mitzvah party on Saturday, December 31, 2016, at the Providence Park KeyBank Club in Portland, Oregon. If you ever wanted to see the stadium where the Portland Timbers plays their home games with the lights off… well, here you go 🙂

About 125 guests came together to celebrate Ike’s big night and the ushering in of a new year. As they arrived, I played a variety of upbeat background music before entertaining the kids with a variety of games, including ‘name that tune’, a scavenger hunt and Coke & Pepsi.
 
Since this event was being held at the Timbers stadium, I thought soccer may be Ike’s favorite sport. He told me it’s actually his second favorite… baseball is what he likes best, so with two teams competiting, we also played a great game of pass the ball… baseball vs. soccer. 
 
With many guests visiting from back East and quite a few little ones that probably wouldn’t make it to the Portland new year, Ike’s mom wanted an East Coast countdown at 9pm (Pacific Time). After an upbeat ‘Auld Lang Syne’, the energy level jumped dramatically with everyone coming out for ‘The Hora’ and chair raising of Ike and his family.

A variety of fun hit music followed, everything from ‘Happy’ and ‘Uptown Funk’ to ‘Billie Jean’ and ‘Single Ladies’, it was a good time on the dance floor.
 
With the threat of snow that night and many 6am flights back to the east coast scheduled for the next day, the Portland new year turned out to be a little ambitious and Ike’s family decided to have that countdown take place at 11pm instead 🙂
 
Mazel Tov Ike and thank you parents Linda and Michael for choosing PRO DJs. Happy New Year!
