School Dances

Union High School Outdoor Homecoming Dance

 
PRO DJs has had the opportunity to perform at nearly every dance held at Union High School in Camas, Washington since they opened in 2007.
 
Last year they planned to hold their homecoming dance outside in the school courtyard, but Mother Nature had other plans.  They tried again this year on Saturday, September 27, 2014 and this time it was a beautiful evening for about 500 students.
 
This wasn’t the typical formal dance.  In fact, it wasn’t formal at all, as the school had two bouncy play areas set-up.  With this event starting at 7pm, we still had almost an hour of daylight left, so this provided some fun entertainment until dusk.

It didn’t take long for most of the students to crowd the dance floor area as it was tough to resist the hot sounds of Iggy Izaela, Calvin Harris, Ariana Grande and more.

The students were loving the current hit music, such as Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off,’ ‘Delirious’ from Steve Aoki, Chris Lake & Tujamo featuring Kid Ink, this week’s number one song ‘Rather Be’ from Clean Bandit and more.  This was a big time party and being outside felt great on a warm late-September night.

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 Canby High School Prom

 
Portland DJ PRO DJs had the opportunity to perform at the Canby High School Prom held at Montgomery Park in Northwest Portland, Oregon on Saturday, May 18, 2013.
 
With an 8pm start, the open skylight ceiling at Montgomery Park flooded the dancefloor with daylight for a little over an hour, but the students didn’t let that deter them and began to gather on the dancefloor just a few songs after their special night began.

The theme was ‘Today’s Dream’s, Tomorrow’s Memories’ and they will remember this one for days to come.  The dancefloor was movin’ and shakin’ the entire evening as Canby High students enjoyed dancing to the latest hits: ‘Feel This Moment’, ‘Thrift Shop’, ‘Heart Attack’, and the smash of the night, ‘Can’t Hold Us Down.’

The court was introduced and the Queen announced around 10:15pm.  The court then danced to ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World’ by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.

And more fun dance music from this Portland DJ kept up the energy… ‘Scream & Shout’, ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark’, ‘I Love It’, ‘Gangham Style’ and more.

Looking good in their formal attire, students gathered on the dance floor in the Emerald Ballroom almost right away.  With the latest music from Chris Brown, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and Pitbull, it was tough to resist and it seemed the dance floor was packed wall-to-wall the entire evening.

Family Fun Night At Camas School Auction

 
It felt like Spring outside on Friday, March 1, 2013, but inside it was a Winter Wonderland theme for a Family Fun Night at Prune Hill Elementary School in Camas, Washington for their annual silent auction.
 
I had the opportunity to perform at this event for the first time last year and appreciated being chosen to perform again this year.  This was an auction to raise money for the school with parents bidding on items and participating in various raffles, while I entertained the kids with hit music and fun games. 
 
Like the last time I was here, the kids loved dancing to the latest hit songs.  Three in particular were requested over and over again… ‘Thrift Shop’, ‘Gangham Style’ and One Direction’s ‘Kiss You’.  We also had fun with a Swing Dance, Freeze Dance and five limbos running simueltaneously as the students leaned back through one after another, breaking the old record of four limbos at the last event.
 
When the auction tables were closed, the raffle winners were announced and prizes awarded.  There was a still enough time though for a good run of fun party music and the kids, along with a few parents, danced and moved around to favorites ‘Cha Cha Slide,’ ‘Party Rock Anthem’ and of course, repeats of the three songs noted above… they couldn’t get enough 🙂
