Packed Dance Floor Tigard Company Party

 
Corporate holiday parties are in full swing and PRO DJs had the opportunity to perform for the first time for a floor covering provider out of Tigard Company party on Saturday, December 8, 2018 and it turns out we will get to do it again next year.
 
As guests gathered in the Columbia River Ballroom at Embassy Suites in Tigard, Oregon, I played a variety of background music selections that also included Christmas favorites, “Sleigh Ride,” “Let It Snow,” “Peanuts Theme” and more.

Following dinner was a presentation to recognize employees that ended with a big group photo.

Having everyone on the dance floor for the photo was great timing when the music started and we got off to a great start, even with most of the bright lights still on for the first few songs.

Eventually the house lights were dimmed and the packed dance floor stayed that way for most of the next nearly four hours. They danced to everything from “September” and “Stayin’ Alive” to “Uptown Funk” and “Single Ladies.”

Karaoke Wedding McMenamins Edgefield

 
Jenn and Zach’s karaoke wedding was held Saturday, November 17, 2018 at McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon. Both ceremony and reception were in Blackberry Hall.
 
When I arrived for setup, the normal spot for the DJ near the dance floor had two skirted tables that appeared to be dinner seating for guests. Fortunately, one was my table, but the other was for the photographer. With a full karaoke setup, I was concerned about having enough space for everything, but the venue staff was able to move the photographer table, and even though placement of the speakers was still a challenge, I think I made it work.

Jenn and Zach noted this would be a brunch wedding so they would have guests begin arriving at 11:30am with the ceremony scheduled to begin at 12:30pm. Background music during this time was a mix of requests the newlyweds solicited from everyone ahead of time, and as expected, featured a wide variety of artists from Frank Sinatra and Beyonce to Brad Paisley and Night Ranger. The father of the groom was the officiant.
 
Karaoke Wedding Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party Entrance: Ramin Djawadi – Fake Plastic Trees (Westworld)
  • Bride Entrance: Canon In D
  • Bride & Groom Exit: Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees

After the ceremony, there was no room turnover so guests could remain at their tables or walk around. Zach and Jenn posed for additional photos outside before returning for their grand entrance, first dance, and dances with their parents before the buffet was opened for brunch.
 
Karaoke Wedding Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Sugar Ray – Fly
  • First Dance: Chris Stapleton – Tennessee Whiskey
  • Bride and Father Dance: The Hound + The Fox – Baby Mine
  • Groom and Mother Dance: Lee Ann Womack – I Hope You Dance
  • Cake Cutting: Billy Joel – The Longest Time

Jenn and Zach are very artistic and that was evident in the wedding favors they had made for every guest and vendor… a wooden book with each name engaved and filled with items such as a personal dinner name plate, colored pencils with a custom Jenn and Zach coloring book and a red stocking cap that everyone wore for the group photo taken near the end of brunch.

The karaoke was a big hit, so much so, there was not really any time for dancing. Guests signed up to sing everything from “Man In The Mirror” and “Fat Bottomed Girls” to “Wannabe” and “Uptown Funk”. We finished the afternoon with the newlyweds and wedding party leading everyone in Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

Abby’s Bat Mitzvah Party Beth Israel Portland

 
Abby’s rockin’ Bat Mitzvah party took place at Congregation Beth Israel in Northwest Portland, Oregon on Saturday, November 10, 2018.
 
Guests arrived from the ceremony and Havdala held across the street around 6:20pm. I played a variety of background music selections during cocktails and the sit-down dinner from artists such as, Maroon 5, Imagine Dragons and Abby’s favorites, Bruno Mars and Pink.
 
During dinner, I got the games started for the kids by giving each of them a gold coin and letting them know the first three kids that bring me 10 coins will get a Starbucks gift card. With 50 kids attending, there was a lot of convincing going on and we got our three winners.  I then led the kids in a rousing two rounds of the scavenger hunt and Coke & Pepsi before opening the dance floor to everyone with ‘The Hora’ and chair-raising.
 

 
After rolling a few older songs that seemed to be especially appreciated byr the adults, the dance floor became jam packed for “Uptown Funk,” “I Gotta Feeling,” Abby’s request for “Shake It Off” and more.

October Wedding Camas Meadows Golf Club

 
Nearly 80 guests attended Elyse and Kelby’s wedding Camas Meadows Golf Club on Saturday, October 13, 2018.
 
The weather was absolutely perfect for this time of year… sunshine and around 70 degrees for the ceremony that began at 3pm in the gazebo on the golf course. With my main sound system set-up for the reception, I used a second mixer and cordless lapel microphone to provide music and sound for the wedding.

Wedding Camas Meadows Golf Club Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party Entrance: Kenny Chesney – Me & You
  • Bride Entrance: Christina Perri – A Thousand Years
  • Sand Ceremony: George Strait – Cross My Heart
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Hunter Hayes – Wanted

Following the ceremony, guests walked up the hill to the tent near the parking lot for the reception. For background music, I played a variety of songs, that featured mostly country artists, such as Tim McGraw, Lady Antebelum and Zac Brown Band, as requested by the newlyweds. Immediate family, the wedding party and bride and groom stayed in the gazebo area for photos.

Wedding Camas Meadows Golf Club Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Stevie Wonder – Signed Sealed Delivered…
  • Cake Cutting: Lonestar – Amazed
  • First Dance: Temptations – My Girl
  • Bride and Father Dance: Tim McGraw – My Little Girl
  • Groom and Mother Dance: The Band Perry – Mother Like Mine

  • Bouquet Toss: Big & Rich – Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy)
  • Garter Toss: Maroon 5 – Sugar
  • Last Dance: Blake Shelton – God Gave Me You

Between the cake cutting and first dance, Elyse and Kelby played the shoe game. The wedding anniversary dance opened the dance floor to everyone and featured multiple couples married over 40 years. It was still early when the dancing began, so there was some ebb and flow the first 30 minutes or so, but then the bride and groom joined in and the party was under way.

A good mix of favorites from the past like “Brown Eyed Girl” and “In The Mood” along with recent hit songs “Uptown Funk” and “Happy,” plus a request for “Cupid Shuffle” kept things moving.
