Naomi’s High Energy Bat Mitzvah Party At Congregation Beth Israel Portland Oregon

 
Naomi’s high energy Bat Mitzvah party took place at Congregation Beth Israel in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
 
Guests arrived from the ceremony and Havdala held across the street around 6:20pm. I had a variety of music selections playing in the background, but that didn’t last long as the kids were ready for games before dinner, including Naomi trivia and her request that we play Coke and Pepsi. She is a big fan of Taylor Swift, so we changed the team names to Taylor and Swift ­čÖé
 
Dinner started around 7pm. With many family members visiting from Detroit, I was asked to play a variety of softer Motown hits as background music for dinner. After Naomi’s parents welcomed everyone and toasted the Bat Mitzvah girl, I invited everyone out to the dance floor for “The Hora” and chair-raising.

Surfsand Resort Wedding Cannon Beach Oregon

 
Oregon Coast Wedding DJ Rich Ellis had the opportunity to perform at Haley and Trevin’s Surfsand Resort wedding and reception on Saturday, February 11, 2023 in Cannon Beach, Oregon.
 
The weather was beautiful with lots of sunshine and the couple had decided to have the ceremony on the beach. However, the threat of sneaker waves prevented that from happening and vows were exchanged in the main ballroom in front of the fireplace.

Garner Electric
Embassy Suites – Tigard, OR (Columbia River Ballroom)
DJ: Rich Ellis
 
This was the third time PRO DJs performed for this company since 2019. We were warned in the past by the owner that electricians are boring and probably won’t dance much :). That wasn’t the case for a small group who had a great time dancing for about an hour non-stop. Even Santa joined in the fun.
