Bat Mitzvah Party At Kimpton Hotel Vintage

 
Rebekah’s memorable Bat Mitzvah party took place at Kimpton Hotel Vintage in Downtown Portland, Oregon on Saturday, March 24, 2018.
 
For this event, I also provided music and sound for the ceremony held in the Pinot Blanc AB room. Afterwards, all guests made their way to the Game Lounge for refreshments and games like billiards and shuffleboard while the main ballroom was setup for dinner and dancing. There was also a photo booth in an adjacent room.
 
About 45 minutes before dinner, all of the kids came back to the Pinot Blanc AB room for games with me, including musical chairs, a limbo and group hula hoop chain contest.
 
Everyone found their seats for dinner a little before 6pm and then I introduced Rebekah, who entered the room to “Battle Without Honor of Humanity” by Tomoyasu Hotei. I then played background music for dinner that featured classic jazz selections such as Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” as requested by the family.
 
Following dinner was a short candle lighting ceremony. I announced the names and played walk-up music for the family (Ben E. King – Stand By Me), friends (Bruno Mars – Count On Me) and loved ones no longer with us (See You Again – Piano Instrumental). Rebekah had my cordless microphone and commented when people came up to light a candle.
 
Next, I opened the dance floor with “The Hora” and chair raising. The ceiling is very low at Hotel Vintage, so I made sure to warn the guys lifting the chair. Needless to say, this might have been the lowest chair raising I have witnessed ūüôā

There was a lot of energy and the dance floor was hoppin’ for almost 3 hours to hot hits such as ‘Uptown Funk’ and ‘September’, plus family requests for 80’s hits ‘We Got The Beat’ and ‘Walking On Sunshine.’

The kids started a train to Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ before an impromtu limbo started, this time involving the adults.

Big Time Bat Mitzvah Party At Elysian Ballroom

 
It was a great night for Yael, her friends and family at her bat mitzvah party on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the Elysian Ballroom in the historic Pythian Building in downtown Portland, Oregon.
 
Arriving guests gathered in the cocktail lounge for drinks and appetizers and the kids entertained themselves in the photo booth or got a henna tattoo, or both.
 
About 30 minutes before dinner, the kids joined me in the main ballroom for some games. The dance floor is a large stage in this room, so that is where I broke the ice with ‘Name That Tune’ before organizing a limbo and musical chairs.
 
Dinner for everyone was also held in the main ballroom where I played a mix of light selections from Jack Johnson, OneRepublic, Imagine Dragons and more, as requested by the family.

Near the end of dinner, guests were treated to a video that was created by Yael’s father Daniel. I then invited everyone up to the stage to dance to ‘The Hora’ and celebrate the bat mitzvah girl and her family with the traditional chair raising.

With just shy of 200 guests in attendance, space on the dance floor was at a premium, but no worries as they formed a train and danced around the entire room.

This Saturday night dance party was raging as the floor was packed for nearly every song from start to finish and friends and family brought the energy for the big hit songs, ‘I Gotta Feeling,’ ‘Uptown Funk,’ ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ and more.

Big Time Bat Mitzvah Party At Coopers Hall

 
DJ Rich Ellis had the opportunity to perform at Estelle’s Bat Mitzvah Party on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at Coopers Hall in Portland, Oregon.
 
This was the very first Bar or Bat Mitzvah party to happen at this venue and the celebration took place on both the main lower level and upstairs in the mezzanine. Around 100 adults hung out by the bar and enjoyed a plated dinner in the main area, while about 50 kids were upstairs with me for dinner and games. As guests arrived, I played a mix of classic jazz selections as requested by Estelle’s father.

The mezzanine is not a large area, but it was a great space for games, including ‘Name That Tune’ and three rousing rounds of “Musical Chairs Scavenger Hunt’ that featured the kids having to go downstairs to retrieve items from their parents. As expected, they were in a hurry, but running on the stairs was not allowed.
 
Following the games and a toast from Estelle’s parents, I invited everyone out to dance to ‘The Hora’ and celebrate the bat mitzvah girl and her family with the traditional chair raising. The strung light bulbs were very low, but fortunately nobody got stuck ūüôā

Many adults had a great time dancing on the main level in front of the bar, while the kids had the upstairs mostly to themselves to create a raging Saturday night dance party from the opening number. Friends and family brought the energy for the big hit songs, ‘I Gotta Feeling,’ ‘Uptown Funk,’ ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling,’ the recent smash from Portland’s own Portugal. The Man ‘Feel It Still’ and more.
