Corporate Karaoke Party Revolution Hall Portland

 
PRO DJs had the opportunity to DJ the Dr Martens AirWair corporate karaoke party held at Revolution Hall (Showbar area) in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, February 26, 2022.
 
Guests began arriving for the Mardi Gras themed event at 5pm. After dinner and a raffle, additional prizes were available for the limbo and then dancing. I played a variety of hit songs from Michael Jackson to the “Cupid Shuffle”. This group really also enjoyed 90’s and 2000’s hip hop selections.

Oregon Karaoke Wedding Timberline Lodge

Jenn and Erik’s Oregon karaoke wedding was held Saturday, April 3, 2021 at Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood, Oregon with the ceremony in the Raven’s Nest and reception in Ullman Hall.
 
Since the pandemic shut most everything down in March 2020, this was my first DJ performance since last October. I thought some rust might set in, but 30 years in this business it was like riding a bike for me and I really appreciated the opportunity to do this again.
 
It was a beautiful day outside and the large picturesque window provided a great view of the mountain when the ceremony began at 6pm.

Oregon Karaoke Wedding Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party Entrance: Chase Rice – Eyes On You
  • Groom Entrance: Billy Squier – The Stroke (Flower Dude)
  • Bride Entrance: John Williams – The Imperial March, Darth Vader’s Theme
  • Bride & Groom Exit: Big & Rich – Lost In This Moment

After the ceremony, guests took the stairs down to Ullman Hall for the reception. There were about 60 guests in attendance and the staff did a great job locating the tables six feet apart, but with karaoke on the itinerary, it was intially a bit of a challenge placing my speakers and projector screen for the lyrics, but we made it work and it turned out to be the ideal setup for the space.
 
Background music for cocktails and dinner was a mix of instrumental or orchestra versions of hit songs all chosen by the bride. Featured artists included Simply Three, Ramin Djawadi and selections from the Westworld soundtracks.

  • First Dance: Custom Mashup
  • Bouquet Presentation: Kelis – Milkshake
  • Last Dance: Luke Combs – Better Together

Before their wedding, Jenn and Erik noted “we would like to be announced for our first dance like were going into a boxing ring. You had suggested doing the “Let’s get ready to rumble!” intro which we love. After that we’ll have you introduce us and we will provide you with what to say, and then we are going to go into the choreographed mash up.”
 
In my sound studio, I pre-produced their introductions and mixed the mashup which featured the following songs (Groove Is In The Heart, Wobble, Finesse, Rump Shaker, OMG, Hot In Heere, Single Ladies, Low, Uptown Funk). The newlyweds put on a great show for their guests.

Rainier Oregon Wedding At Private Residence

Jodi and Tom’s Rainier Oregon wedding was held on Saturday, October 10, 2020 at the home of the bride’s family. There were two tents setup on the property… one for the ceremony at the bottom of the driveway and other off the front of the house for the reception.

I provided music for the reception only. To ensure enough space for seating, the tent was extended past the driveway where the grass angles down. I was able to make this work, although I could not find a solution for one leaning speaker 🙂

As guests arrived for the reception, I played a mix of Jazz/Bossa nova as requested by the bride and groom.

 

Rainier Oregon Reception Highlights:

  • First Dance: Gregory Alan Isakov & The Colorado Symphony – The Stable Song
  • Bride and Father Dance: Tim McGraw – My Little Girl

It was a great night of dancing as guests enjoyed moving to a variety of hit songs, including the groom’s requests for the “Electric Slide” and AC/DC’s “TNT.” The evening ended around 8pm with a sparkler sendoff for the newlyweds.

 

Best wishes Jodi and Tom and thank you to the sister of the bride, Riley for choosing PRO DJs.

Delightful Day For Yellow Gold Farm Wedding

 
Noelle and Eric’s Yellow Gold Farm wedding took place in Albany, Oregon on Saturday, August 22, 2020 on a delightful summer day.
 
The temperature was a perfect 83 degrees, but the giant trees shade almost the entire property of this venue so even a hot day would be comfortable here.

When the dance floor opened to everyone, guests were not shy and filled it for the remainder of the evening, dancing to everything from “Dancing Queen” and “Dynamite,” to “You Can Call Me Al” and the “Cupid Shuffle.”

Hot Day At Chehalis Washington Wedding

 
MaKinna and Cody’s Chehalis Washington wedding and reception took place on Saturday, August 15, 2020 at the home of the bride’s aunt in Salkum, Washington.
 
It was a beautiful, hot sunny summer day, but fortunately not as hot as the forecasted 100 degrees (we topped out at 93). This was also the first event performed by PRO DJs in 2020 since March 7th as the coronavirus pandemic has forced postponements of most events to 2021.
 
Chehalis Washington Wedding (8-15-20)
 
Chehalis Washington Wedding Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party Entrance: The Piano Guys – A Sky Full of Stars
  • Bride Entrance: Matt Kearney – All I Need (2:56 minutes in)
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Randy Travis – Forever and Ever Amen

The large property allowed guests to spread out but most went for the shade under the tent or a nearby tree. Background music for the reception was a mix of mostly Country with some alternative selections as requested by the bride.
 
Chehalis Washington Wedding Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Eric Church – Give Me Back My Hometown
  • Cake Cutting: Imagine Dragons – Stuck on You
  • First Dance: Loggins & Messina – Danny’s Song
  • Bride/Father Dance: Kenny Chesney – Don’t Blink
  • Groom and Mother Dance: Kenny Chesney – Don’t Blink
  • Bouquet Toss: Taylor Swift – Blank Space
  • Garter Toss: Sammy Kershaw – Queen of My Double Wide Trailer

When the dance floor opened to everyone following the father/daughter and mother/son dance, many guests enjoyed dancing to the first few songs. It was hot though under the tent and considering the circumstances of our world today, it wasn’t surprising to see most everyone spread out on the property the remainder of the reception, enjoying the music right where they were.
