Jack’s Urban Studio Portland Bar Mitzvah

 
Jack was fired up for his Urban Studio Portland Bar Mitzvah held on Saturday, December 16, 2017.
 
As the adults gathered in the bar area above the main room, I played about 45 minutes of background music before entertaining the kids with games, including ‘Name That Tune’ and two wild rounds of the scavenger hunt. Jack did a great job judging each item and keeping his friends in line.
 
Dinner followed in the main room and after the kids finished eating, they followed me to the bar area for more games. I didn’t have my music or a microphone, but the small space allowed for a fun balloon stuffing contest and the limbo.
 
After the adults finished eating, we all returned to the main room for dancing that began with “The Hora” and chair raising.

The cool accent lighting and graffiti backdrop was conducive to a great party and most guests (adults and kids) danced the night away to the smash hits, such as “Uptown Funk,” “Cha Cha Slide,” “Can’t Stop The Feeling” and more.

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

 
Salem Bar Mitzvah DJ Rich Ellis performed at Nathan’s Bar Mitzvah party on Saturday, July 8, 2017 in the Croisan Creek Room at the Salem Convention Center in Salem, Oregon. This event began at 7pm with dinner background music.

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’ 🙂

Portland Bar Mitzvah DJ Energizes Benson Hotel

 
Portland Bar Mitzvah DJ Rich Ellis performed at David’ Bar Mitzvah held in the Mayfair Ballroom at the Benson Hotel in Downtown Portland, Oregon on Saturday, February 11, 2017.
 
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.
