A Tale Of Two Mitzvahs
PRO DJs performed at David’s Bar Mitzvah and Shayna’s Bat Mitzvah Saturday night.
Steve was the DJ at David’s party, held at Club Sport in Tigard. After some tough competition from a close game in the NCAA Basketball tournament airing on the big screen television right outside where the dancing was to take place, Steve finally drew a crowd and proceeded to rock the conference room with fun games and lots of current hit music for the kids. For the final hour of this event, the entire club was opened to the kids and they scattered almost immediately to enjoy rock climbing, basketball and other activities. This allowed the adults to own the dance floor and Steve accommodated them with a variety of great dance music from all eras.
Rich was the DJ at Shayna’s Bat Mitzvah held at Aquariva Italian Kitchen in Portland. This event was originally planned to involve games and dancing similar to David’s Bar Mitzvah, but about 30 days before the event, the family changed their mind and decided they would prefer a low-key affair. I played a variety of background music for the adult guests, who appeared to enjoy the evening visiting with each other while the kids gathered in a small side room they had all to themselves. This room featured an Xbox game system and Wii with Rock Band on a big screen, plus lots of candy 🙂 While this event was more laid back than most similar parties, many guests couldn’t resist the urge to get their groove on and we had a nice run on a makeshift dancefloor to finish the evening with a fun mix of music that included the ‘Cha Cha Slide’, Cee Lo Green’s ‘Forget You’ and Shayna’s favorite, Shania Twain ‘Man! I Feel Like A Woman’.
Mazel Tov to David and Shayna. Thank you for choosing PRO DJs. -Rich
