Daniel’s Wild Portland Bar Mitzvah Party

 
Portland Bar Mitzvah DJ Rich Ellis performed at Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah party on Saturday, March 26, 2016, at the Multnomah Arts Center in SW Portland, Oregon.
 
About 150 guests came together to celebrate the occasion. As they arrived, I played a variety of upbeat background music before entertaining the kids with the gold coin game, name that tune and a rowdy scavenger hunt. 
 
Daniel is a big soccer fan and his favorite teams are the Portland Timbers, FC Barcelona and Brazil. This made for a great game of pass the soccer ball with all three teams represented. 
 
After dinner, a short video and toast, the energy level jumped dramatically with everyone coming out for ‘The Hora’ and chair raising.

A variety of fun hit music followed, including ‘Happy,’ ‘Uptown Funk,’ ‘Watch Me (Whip Nae Nae)’ and a few Brazilian songs, as requested by the family.

They could have danced all night, but with a little time left before we had to call it a night, Daniel wanted to play the game ‘Coke and Pepsi.’ The kids had a lot of fun participating, with a few acting as callers and judging.
 
Your friends and family were a lot of fun Daniel… Mazel Tov!

Portland Bar Mitzvah DJ At Tiffany Center

 
Mazel Tov Ethan!  Portland DJ Rich Ellis performed at his Bar Mitzvah celebration on Saturday, May 9, 2015 at the Tiffany Center in Downtown Portland, Oregon.
 
Guests began arriving in the Crystal Ballroom on the 2nd floor around 6pm to a variety of background music that continued through cocktails and dinner.

As expected, the kids finished eating first and began to get a little restless.  With the dining area positioned around the dance floor and Ethan’s mom hoping the background music could continue for the adults during dinner, I suggested taking the kids to an open area on the other side of the room to lead some games that did not require music.  She agreed and about 30 young people had a great time with the football vs. soccer team race (Ethan loves both sports), Sharks and Minnows and a balloon stuffing contest.
 
I then returned to the stage and opened the dance floor with a mother/son dance (Fiddler on the Roof – Sunrise, Sunset) before launching into ‘The Hora’ and inviting everyone out to celebrate Ethan with the chair raising.

The party was off and running with both kids and parents dancing together the rest of the evening to everything from ‘Celebration’ to ‘Happy.’  There were also a lot of swing dancers with this group and they showed their stuff to ‘In The Mood’ and ‘Jump Jive ‘An Wail.’  A solid mix of classic hits and today’s best music kept everyone in a good mood and made for a fun evening.

One Bar Mitzvah Two Portland DJs

 
Portland DJs Steve Marker and Rich Ellis both performed at Solomon’s Bar Mitzvah celebration on Saturday, January 18, 2014, at the Ecotrust building located in the Pearl District.
 
Instead of one big party for adults and parents together as is customary, our client decided to have Steve entertain the kids on the 3rd floor and Rich play music just for the adults on the 2nd floor.
 
Portland DJs
 
All guests came together briefly for a toast to Solomon followed by dancing to ‘The Hora’ with chair raising and other Israeli dance favorites before the kids returned to their party and the adults danced to the classic hits, including the Rolling Stones, James Brown, Stevie Wonder and more.
 
Portland DJs
 
The kids loved having their own party, but so did the adults.  It worked out great and Solomon’s mom Rebecca let me know she really enjoyed the music.
 
“Thanks for doing such a great job at Solomon’s bar mitzvah!! Everyone had a fabulous time – especially us!! I have recommended ProDJ to all of our friends!!”  -Rebecca (Solomon’s mom)
 
Thank you Andie Petkus Photography for sharing photos from this event.
 

Portland DJ Performs At Daytime Bar Mitzvah

 
Mazel Tov Sam!  Portland DJ Rich Ellis performed at his Bar Mitzvah celebration on Saturday, September 28, 2013.
 
This may be the wettest September in recent memory and it was another soaker on this day, but fortunately we were inside the Gym at McMenamins Kennedy School in Portland, Oregon.
 
Portland DJ
 
One positive thing about a cloudy, rainy day is the gloom outside can make it feel like a Saturday night inside.  The guests at Sam’s Bar Mitzvah certainly partied like it was a Saturday night.

After a round of ‘Name That Tune’, I invited everyone out for an opening swing dance, followed by several other fun hit songs, including the ‘Cha Cha Slide’ that got everyone fired up for the dance floor.

The Bar Mitzvah boy and his family all took a chair-raising ride.

If you didn’t know what time it was, you would have never guessed it was about 3pm.  Judging by the activity on the dance floor, it felt much later and everyone got down to a little bit of everything, including current hits ‘Can’t Hold Us’ and ‘Safe and Sound’, along with classics like ‘Stayin’ Alive’ and ‘Billie Jean’.  Sam also got Rickrolled at his own Bar Mitzvah when his parents dedicated Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ to their son.
