Soccer Stars At Rose City Futsal Bat Mitzvah

 
Ani loves soccer and Rose City Futsal in Northeast Portland, Oregon was the perfect place to hold her Bat Mitzvah party on Saturday, November 26, 2016.
 
The family reserved the entire venue. This meant 2 full turf futsal fields to place soccer and other fun activities.

There is also a third hardwood floor and this is where I setup my sound system for music, games and dancing. The adults gathered upstairs in Clive’s Public House located on the mezzanine level.

The play fields provided stiff competition to dancing, but the music carried nicely throughout the venue and added another level of energy to the fun both kids and adults had playing soccer and other sports.
 
The dance floor became a little more popular when everyone gathered for the traditional chair raising and dancing to ‘The Hora.’

The music mix featured mostly current hit songs, such as ‘Cheap Thrills’ and ‘Side to Side’ plus all of Ani’s favorites, including Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling,’ ‘Super Bass’ from Nicki Minaj and Walk the Moon’s ‘Shut Up and Dance.’

Eleanor’s Bat Mitzvah Party At Kennedy School

 
Eleanor’s memorable Bat Mitzvah party took place at McMenamins Kennedy School in Northeast Portland, Oregon on Saturday, September 10, 2016.
 
When looking for a DJ for her daughter’s big night, her mom noted the following: “Must engage all the kids so they all feel included; must have “Jewish” feel with The Hora. I’m not interested in a DJ who just blasts music – the DJ must engage directly with the kids and get camp friends interacting with school friends, etc.” I appreciate that I was chosen for this event and it was a pleasure performing for Eleanor and her friends and family. 
 
For arriving guests I played a variety of background music that included requests for ‘Best Day of My Life’ from American Authors, Train’s ‘Hey, Soul Sister’, ‘Graduation (Friends Forever)’ from Vitamin C and the appropriately titled, ‘I Love Eleanor’ by Wes Cunningham.
 
After the kids had a chance to eat, they had a great time playing games, including a scavenger hunt, Coke & Pepsi and the limbo. Eleanor’s mom Amy was insistent The Hora be danced correctly, so she took a few minutes to demonstrate for everyone before I started the music.

There was a lot of energy and the dance floor was hoppin’ all evening to hot hits such as ‘Uptown Funk’, ‘Billie Jean’, ‘Shut Up and Dance’ and more.

The Circus Project is Portland’s training center for contemporary circus arts and this was the first private party ever to take place there. With that in mind, there were several contortionists performing on tables throughout the venue, showcasing their skills of extreme physical flexibility.

While the parents engaged in conversation and dined downstairs, the kids had the entire upstairs to themselves and they had a great time playing games, such as the scavenger hunt, dancing to their favorite hit songs and doing the limbo.

Zoe’s Rocking Bat Mitzvah Party At Beth Israel

 
Zoe’s rocking Bat Mitzvah party took place at Congregation Beth Israel in Northwest Portland, Oregon on Saturday, May 28, 2016.
 
Zoe was loaded with energy and had no fear of public speaking as she asked for my microphone to announce dinner. She also worked the room by making the rounds to reveal the table raffle winners of some her favorite books. If she ever decides to be a DJ, I told her “she’s hired” 🙂
 
Following dinner, the guest of honor’s parents toasted their daughter. I then led the kids in a rousing two rounds of the scavenger hunt before opening the dance floor to everyone with ‘The Hora’ and chair-raising.

After spinning a few older songs for the adults, the dance floor became jam packed for ‘Uptown Funk,’ ‘Party Rock Anthem’ and more.

Zoe and her friends really love pop rock songs from the last decade such as tracks from Fall Out Boy, Green Day and Panic at the Disco. I was playing the music loud for the dance floor, but the kids were singing so loud, it wasn’t loud enough. They sounded great and had a lot of fun belting out their favorites.
 
As we neared the end, they brought nearly every balloon bouquet in the room to the dance floor that made this wild night look even more festive.

Big Time Bat Mitzvah Party At The Chart House

 
Portland Disc Jockey Rich Ellis had the opportunity to perform at Ella’s Bat Mitzvah Party on Saturday, April 9, 2016 at The Chart House Restaurant in Portland, Oregon.
 
The celebration took place on the lower level and filled quickly with nearly 100 guests. As they arrived, I played a mix of vocal jazz, such as Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra, as requested by the family.
 
About 40 minutes later, the kids started to get a little restless, so I switched to some contemporary hits, including ‘Cake By The Ocean’ and the new Meghan Trainor smash, ‘No’.  Over the next 15 minutes, we also played several rounds of ‘Name That Tune’ and managed to get in a limbo before dinner.

Following dinner was a slide show and toast from Ella’s parents. I then invited everyone out to dance to ‘The Hora’ and celebrate the bat mitzvah girl and her family with the traditional chair raising. The ceiling was very low, especially with the even lower beams, but fortunately nobody bumped their head 🙂 Most everyone joined hands and circled the small space to create a raging Saturday night dance party from the opening number.

The floor was packed for nearly every song from start to finish and friends and family brought the energy for the big hit songs, ‘Happy,’ ‘Uptown Funk,’ ‘Watch Me (Whip Nae Nae)’ and more.
