Big Time Bat Mitzvah Party At Coopers Hall

 
DJ Rich Ellis had the opportunity to perform at Estelle’s Bat Mitzvah Party on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at Coopers Hall in Portland, Oregon.
 
This was the very first Bar or Bat Mitzvah party to happen at this venue and the celebration took place on both the main lower level and upstairs in the mezzanine. Around 100 adults hung out by the bar and enjoyed a plated dinner in the main area, while about 50 kids were upstairs with me for dinner and games. As guests arrived, I played a mix of classic jazz selections as requested by Estelle’s father.

The mezzanine is not a large area, but it was a great space for games, including ‘Name That Tune’ and three rousing rounds of “Musical Chairs Scavenger Hunt’ that featured the kids having to go downstairs to retrieve items from their parents. As expected, they were in a hurry, but running on the stairs was not allowed.
 
Following the games and a toast from Estelle’s parents, I invited everyone out to dance to ‘The Hora’ and celebrate the bat mitzvah girl and her family with the traditional chair raising. The strung light bulbs were very low, but fortunately nobody got stuck 🙂

Many adults had a great time dancing on the main level in front of the bar, while the kids had the upstairs mostly to themselves to create a raging Saturday night dance party from the opening number. Friends and family brought the energy for the big hit songs, ‘I Gotta Feeling,’ ‘Uptown Funk,’ ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling,’ the recent smash from Portland’s own Portugal. The Man ‘Feel It Still’ and more.

Big Time Portland Bat Mitzvah Dance Party

 
DJ Rich Ellis had the opportunity to perform at Anita’s Bat Mitzvah Dance Party on Saturday, July 1, 2017 at Congregation Beth Israel in Portland, Oregon.
 
Anita’s dad Ben had the pleasure of selecting the artists for the background music. For cocktails, he wanted an R&B, World, Afro Cuban vibe that included artists: The Indestructible Beat of Soweto, Baba Maal, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Amy Winehouse and more. For dinner, he suggested aoustic rock and mellow pop music, including artists: Nirvana unplugged, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Natalie Merchant, Pink Martini and others.

Before dinner, the plan was for the kids to play some games, but the photo booth and henna tattoos proved too much of a distraction. Following dinner was a slideshow and family toast.
 
Next, Anita introduced and talked about her family and friends during the candle lighting ceremony and then ‘The Hora’ got everyone out of their chairs immediately to begin what turned out to be a big time Saturday night Bat Mitzvah dance party.
 

 
The floor was packed for nearly every song from start to finish and the 200+ guests in attendance brought the energy for big hit songs, ‘Happy,’ ‘Uptown Funk’, ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ and more and my scheduled peformance time was not enough, so an extra 30 minutes was added to keep the party going.
 
Mazel Tov Anita and thank you Lolly and Ben for again choosing PRO DJs. I had the opportunity to perform at sister Ava’s Bat Mitvah in 2015.
 
Post Event Satisfaction Survey:
 
“Rich was wonderful to work with. He met our needs thoroughly and was incredibly flexible as the course of our event changed from what we originally thought. He helped us a great deal with

timing of certain things we wanted and also completely went with the flow when needed. He stayed on a bit longer as our guests were fully on the dance floor still at the end of our agreed time! Rich is incredibly professional, super friendly and is an excellent DJ. This is the 2nd time we have hired him to DJ an event and we were very pleased both times. I have since recommended Pro DJ’s and will continue to!” -Lolly Jamerson and Ben Sandler (Anita’s Bat Mitzvah)

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.
