Rich was amazing from start to finish. He helped plan, answered our questions whenever we had them and coordinated with other vendors the day of the wedding. The music was great and exactly what we asked for. I will be recommending Pro DJs to everyone I know who needs a great DJ. Very professional and organized. Made our wedding day that much better! -Michelle Love (Michelle & Heather’s Wedding) – Salem, OR (4-14-18)
 
Rich made everything so much easier! Being new to this idea of putting on a BIG wedding, it was marvelous to have a professional DJ who knew just what to do and kept everything on track. Thank you so much! Our daughter and son-in-laws special day could not have gone more smoothly! -Ronda Wallace (Laura Wallace & Nick Reyes Wedding) – Hood River, OR (6-2-18)
 
Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did with the music. Everyone had a wonderful time and we will be happy to refer others to you. Rich Ellis provided a marvelous service.

Rich did a great job at my son’s Bar Mitzvah. He kept the energy at the right level throughout the evening. He kept the kids entertained during cocktail hour with games, which allowed the adults to mingle without a lot of distraction. Then, when it was time to focus on dancing, he played a great mix of music that had young and old alike dancing. We requested a couple slow dances and those were added in at just the right time. Great, memorable evening. -Anna Winthrop (Jordan’s Bar Mitzvah) – Portland, OR (8-25-18)

Portland Vancouver DJs For Any Event

 
A wide variety of events packed the PRO DJs schedule on Saturday, September 21, 2013.  Our Portland Vancouver DJs performed everything from a corporate open house to an apartment complex tenant party, a Bar Mitzvah, school dance and even a last-minute wedding.
 
The day began with Rich at the Western Star Truck Plant Open House on Swan Island in North Portland.  From 10am-4pm, he played a variety of music and made announcments, including raffle prize winners.  The last day of Summer looked more like early November as the rain fell heavily for most of this event, but guests made the most of it and enjoyed the dunk tank and classic car show.
 
Immediately afterwards, Rich hustled over to the Village at Lovejoy Fountain apartments in downtown Portland for an end of Summer celebration held for all 800 residents, who were treated to a barbecue and a chance to win prizes, including $500 off their rent.  This event was also held outside in the courtyard, but there was no rain for this one and everyone had a good time visiting and a doing little dancing.  There wasn’t an official dance floor, but small groups broke out here and there to get down 🙂
 
Other events taking place this day included Steve performing at Jonah’s Bar Mitzvah at Irving Street Kitchen in Northwest Portland, Rhett at the Union High School Homecoming Dance in Vancouver, Washington and Li at Brittany and Kyle’s wedding at the Fort Vancouver Artillery Barracks also in Vancouver.
 
It was a full slate of events, but everything went smoothly.  Portland Vancouver DJs from PRO DJs have experience performing at any type of event.  You can count on us for consistent, reliable, high-quality service. 
 
Hire a professional… your celebration will be so much better!

Portland DJ Rocks Post-Auction Afterparty

 
Portland DJ AfterpartyThe Atrium at Montgomery Park was the site this year for the annual Oregon Episcopal School Auction, held Saturday, March 9, 2013. 
 
This event requires a lot of planning and hard work, so the volunteers were ready to let loose at the afterparty that began as soon as the main event ended.
 
The auction featured a theme of 60’s and 70’s TV shows and many volunteers were dressed as characters from that time period, including Sonny and Cher. 
 
Portland DJ Rich Ellis spun the hits for this one with a mix of current Top 40 and heavy doses of classic dance tracks from Michael Jackson, Salt N Pepa, James Brown and more.  Crowd favorites also included ‘Come On Eileen’ from Dexy’s Midnight Runners and Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock ‘It Takes Two.’
 
Big thanks to Mari for the opportunity… it was a great time. -Rich
 

Employee Dinner Dance With Portland Party DJ

 
35 years working for one company is a mighty long time and to mark that milestone, Gretchen was asked what she wanted to do to celebrate?
 
She chose a dinner/dance with a Portland party DJ, her co-workers and friends.  The company she works for obliged with a formal gathering at The Nines in Portland, Oregon on Friday, January 25, 2013.
 
With about 60 guests in attendance, the smaller ballroom provided an intimate setting and everyone enjoyed appetizers and drinks while I played a mix of background music that included Coldplay, Al Green, U2 and other popular artists.
 
During dinner, I played a softer set that featured songs from Jack Johnson, Nora Jones, Otis Redding and more.  Afterwards, several co-workers lined up to toast the guest of honor.
 
A slide show followed and it featured many pictures and music from 1978, the year Gretchen began working for the company.  I played on that theme, opening the dancing portion of the evening with ‘Stayin’ Alive’ from the Bee Gees. 
 
It was noted that Gretchen brings a lot of energy to work everyday, so I wasn’t surprised to see her lead the way to the dance floor with most everyone soon joining her and her husband.
 
For this Portland party DJ, it was a great run of classic hits and disco that kept this party movin’ and groovin, including big hits ‘Billie Jean’, ‘We Are Family’, ‘Play That Funky Music’, ‘Love Shack’ and more.

World War II Veterans Reunite In Portland

 
The only marine division never to serve on U.S. soil gathered for a reunion on Friday, September 21, 2012 in the Grand Ballroom II at the Hilton Hotel located in downtown Portland, Oregon.
 
The Sixth Marine Division was formed during World War II in the South Pacific and also disbanded there after taking Okinawa, Japan.
 
The majority of veterans and their spouses are 92 years young, so I played an appropriate mix of music from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s during cocktails and dinner, including selections from the Andrews Sisters, Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller.
 
After dinner, several guest speakers and a group photo, I opened the dance floor with Glenn Miller’s ‘Moonlight Serenade’.  Other popular songs during the war followed and many couples danced and enjoyed the memorable music.
