Portland DJ PRO DJs had the opportunity to perform at the Canby High School Prom held at Montgomery Park in Northwest Portland, Oregon on Saturday, May 18, 2013.
With an 8pm start, the open skylight ceiling at Montgomery Park flooded the dancefloor with daylight for a little over an hour, but the students didn’t let that deter them and began to gather on the dancefloor just a few songs after their special night began.
The theme was ‘Today’s Dream’s, Tomorrow’s Memories’ and they will remember this one for days to come. The dancefloor was movin’ and shakin’ the entire evening as Canby High students enjoyed dancing to the latest hits: ‘Feel This Moment’, ‘Thrift Shop’, ‘Heart Attack’, and the smash of the night, ‘Can’t Hold Us Down.’
The court was introduced and the Queen announced around 10:15pm. The court then danced to ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World’ by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.
And more fun dance music from this Portland DJ kept up the energy… ‘Scream & Shout’, ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark’, ‘I Love It’, ‘Gangham Style’ and more.
PRO DJs has performed at nearly every dance for Union High School in Camas, Washington over the last few years and we appreciated the opportunity to DJ this year’s Prom held at the Tiffany Center in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, April 20,2013.
Looking good in their formal attire, students gathered on the dance floor in the Emerald Ballroom almost right away. With the latest music from Chris Brown, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and Pitbull, it was tough to resist and it seemed the dance floor was packed wall-to-wall the entire evening.
And the hits just kept coming from this Vancouver WA DJ… ‘Suit & Tie’, ‘Thrift Shop’, ‘Party Rock Anthem’, ‘Gangham Style’ and more. The King and Queen were crowned around 10pm and the court danced to ‘Collide’ by Howie Day.
It felt like Spring outside on Friday, March 1, 2013, but inside it was a Winter Wonderland theme for a Family Fun Night at Prune Hill Elementary School in Camas, Washington for their annual silent auction.
I had the opportunity to perform at this event for the first time last year and appreciated being chosen to perform again this year. This was an auction to raise money for the school with parents bidding on items and participating in various raffles, while I entertained the kids with hit music and fun games.
Like the last time I was here, the kids loved dancing to the latest hit songs. Three in particular were requested over and over again… ‘Thrift Shop’, ‘Gangham Style’ and One Direction’s ‘Kiss You’. We also had fun with a Swing Dance, Freeze Dance and five limbos running simueltaneously as the students leaned back through one after another, breaking the old record of four limbos at the last event.
When the auction tables were closed, the raffle winners were announced and prizes awarded. There was a still enough time though for a good run of fun party music and the kids, along with a few parents, danced and moved around to favorites ‘Cha Cha Slide,’ ‘Party Rock Anthem’ and of course, repeats of the three songs noted above… they couldn’t get enough 🙂
Estacada High School Students danced the night away at their Winter Formal dance held in the school commons on Saturday, January 26, 2013. The decorations were impressive and along with my DJ lighting, made the commons look like a hip night club.
Everyone danced non-stop to the latest hit music, including songs from Flo Rida, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Pitbull and more. Especially popular was ‘Beauty and a Beat’ from Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj and ‘Scream and Shout’ from Will.I.Am and Britney Spears.
Thank you to advisor Autumn Gonzales and student Landon Y. for choosing PRO DJs. Autumn let me know after the dance she loved the music selection and really appreciated the clean edits. -Rich
After many, many years at the Monarch Hotel in Clackamas, the Oregon City High School Army JROTC program awards banquet and dance was moved to the Abernethy Center in Oregon City, Oregon. This formal event took place on Saturday, February 18, 2012 and featured dinner and a guest speaker.
As has been customary, the group crowned a G.I. Joe and G.I. Jane for 2012 and they led the first dance of the night to Taylor Swift’s ‘Back to December’ before others joined in. Always courteous and respectful, this group of students is still ready to get down on the dance floor and they expended a lot of energy to a mix of current hits, along with a few classic tracks.
This event is the longest running on the PRO DJs calendar… we have performed this annually going back to 1998. Everyone had a great time and we appreciate the opportunity to perform again at this special banquet. Thank you Major Thomas and Cadet Britney Harter. -Rich
