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.

Many guests stuck around for a solid two hours of dancing to everything from ‘I Gotta Feeling’ and ‘Uptown Funk’ to recent popular songs, ’24K Magic’ and ‘Side to Side’.

Baseball Theme Bar Mitzvah Party At MJCC

 
With all the snow shutting down the city much of the week, there was concern about travel leading up to Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah Party, but most everyone made it safely to the Mittleman Jewish Community Center on Saturday, January 14, 2016.

As guests arrived, I played a variety of background music hits from artists such as OneRepublic, Twenty One Pilots and Maccabeats. The buffet opened a short time later and it didn’t take long before the kids were ready to get active with the many games planned.
 
Daniel is a big baseball fan (he wore a white yamaka with the red baseball stitch lines), so this was a great opportunity to play ‘pass the ball’… in this case, it was baseball vs. Daniel’s second favorite sport, basketball. Several rounds of the scavenger hunt followed and then the adults joined in as we launched into ‘The Hora’ and chair raising.

The dance floor was busy for a solid hour before the adults began to tucker out a little. The kids then returned for the limbo and more games. Daniel wasn’t much into dancing and requested mostly classic rock artists such as AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses, so the final hour was dedicated to his favorites.

“Hi Rich! I just wanted to thank you so, so much for driving through the snow to do our bar mitzvah. You were amazing. All the kids and adults told me how great you were and how much fun they had. My daughter’s bat mitzvah is in 3 years and I will definitely be contacting you again! Thank you again so much!” -Robin Kornblit (Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah)

Ike’s New Year’s Eve Portland Bar Mitzvah Bash

 
Portland Bar Mitzvah DJ Rich Ellis performed at Ike’s Bar Mitzvah party on Saturday, December 31, 2016, at the Providence Park KeyBank Club in Portland, Oregon. If you ever wanted to see the stadium where the Portland Timbers plays their home games with the lights off… well, here you go 🙂

About 125 guests came together to celebrate Ike’s big night and the ushering in of a new year. As they arrived, I played a variety of upbeat background music before entertaining the kids with a variety of games, including ‘name that tune’, a scavenger hunt and Coke & Pepsi.
 
Since this event was being held at the Timbers stadium, I thought soccer may be Ike’s favorite sport. He told me it’s actually his second favorite… baseball is what he likes best, so with two teams competiting, we also played a great game of pass the ball… baseball vs. soccer. 
 
With many guests visiting from back East and quite a few little ones that probably wouldn’t make it to the Portland new year, Ike’s mom wanted an East Coast countdown at 9pm (Pacific Time). After an upbeat ‘Auld Lang Syne’, the energy level jumped dramatically with everyone coming out for ‘The Hora’ and chair raising of Ike and his family.

A variety of fun hit music followed, everything from ‘Happy’ and ‘Uptown Funk’ to ‘Billie Jean’ and ‘Single Ladies’, it was a good time on the dance floor.
 
With the threat of snow that night and many 6am flights back to the east coast scheduled for the next day, the Portland new year turned out to be a little ambitious and Ike’s family decided to have that countdown take place at 11pm instead 🙂
 
Mazel Tov Ike and thank you parents Linda and Michael for choosing PRO DJs. Happy New Year!

Company Party Confidence In PRO DJs 11 Years

 
It was another big time holiday party for a Vancouver Garden Supply company on Saturday, December 10, 2016 and for the eleventh straight year, they chose PRO DJs for their annual event that included gambling, tons of prizes and of course, dancing.

The Grand Ballroom at the Jantzen Beach Red Lion Hotel in Portland, Oregon features a large dining area with dance floor, plus a sizable foyer, that provided the perfect spot to place gaming tables that were open from the very beginning as guests arrived for the party around 6pm.
 
For cocktails and dinner, I played a mix of holiday favorites as requested by the client and the gaming tables remained open until 8:00pm.  The employees of this company really look forward to what comes next each year… a large number of great prizes are given away, including tools, electronics, gift cards, cash, paid time off and big screen televisions. 
 
It normally takes almost two hours to draw all the winners, but most people don’t seem to mind and they are usually excited to start dancing when it’s over.  I enjoy spinning for this group and they have a lot of fun on the dance floor.  I played everything from Michael Jackson and AC/DC to Bruno Mars and The Weeknd.

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.’
 
Mazel Tov Ani and thank you Lisa and Jason for choosing PRO DJs.
