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.

I was so delighted! -Mary & Dave Krug (50th Wedding Anniversary) – Portland, OR (8-19-18)

We’ve been to many Pro DJ events and many with Rich. We couldn’t wait to have him at our event. He’s so easy to work with and such a gentle soul. He know kids, knows how to read a room and knows how to make a party rock!!! Thank you for a most fabulous evening!! -Jennifer and Ken Zeidman (Ruthie’s Bat Mitzvah) – Portland, OR (7-14-18)
 
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)
 
I just wish I had another kid so I could look forward to having Steve be our DJ again! Will have to work on that!!! -Debbie Plawner (Miriam’s Bat Mitzvah) – Portland, OR (10-13-18)
 
He (Steve) was and is always a spectacular partner in the event. There is a reason so many people choose you all. He is amazing. All the kids know him. He can read a room well and know just what to do! -Marisa Brown (Eleanor’s Bat Mitzvah) – Lake Oswego, OR (10-20-18)

Packed Dance Floor Tigard Company Party

 
Corporate holiday parties are in full swing and PRO DJs had the opportunity to perform for the first time for a floor covering provider out of Tigard Company party on Saturday, December 8, 2018 and it turns out we will get to do it again next year.
 
As guests gathered in the Columbia River Ballroom at Embassy Suites in Tigard, Oregon, I played a variety of background music selections that also included Christmas favorites, “Sleigh Ride,” “Let It Snow,” “Peanuts Theme” and more.

Following dinner was a presentation to recognize employees that ended with a big group photo.

Having everyone on the dance floor for the photo was great timing when the music started and we got off to a great start, even with most of the bright lights still on for the first few songs.

Eventually the house lights were dimmed and the packed dance floor stayed that way for most of the next nearly four hours. They danced to everything from “September” and “Stayin’ Alive” to “Uptown Funk” and “Single Ladies.”

Karaoke Wedding McMenamins Edgefield

 
Jenn and Zach’s karaoke wedding was held Saturday, November 17, 2018 at McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon. Both ceremony and reception were in Blackberry Hall.
 
When I arrived for setup, the normal spot for the DJ near the dance floor had two skirted tables that appeared to be dinner seating for guests. Fortunately, one was my table, but the other was for the photographer. With a full karaoke setup, I was concerned about having enough space for everything, but the venue staff was able to move the photographer table, and even though placement of the speakers was still a challenge, I think I made it work.

Jenn and Zach noted this would be a brunch wedding so they would have guests begin arriving at 11:30am with the ceremony scheduled to begin at 12:30pm. Background music during this time was a mix of requests the newlyweds solicited from everyone ahead of time, and as expected, featured a wide variety of artists from Frank Sinatra and Beyonce to Brad Paisley and Night Ranger. The father of the groom was the officiant.
 
Karaoke Wedding Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party Entrance: Ramin Djawadi – Fake Plastic Trees (Westworld)
  • Bride Entrance: Canon In D
  • Bride & Groom Exit: Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees

After the ceremony, there was no room turnover so guests could remain at their tables or walk around. Zach and Jenn posed for additional photos outside before returning for their grand entrance, first dance, and dances with their parents before the buffet was opened for brunch.
 
Karaoke Wedding Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Sugar Ray – Fly
  • First Dance: Chris Stapleton – Tennessee Whiskey
  • Bride and Father Dance: The Hound + The Fox – Baby Mine
  • Groom and Mother Dance: Lee Ann Womack – I Hope You Dance
  • Cake Cutting: Billy Joel – The Longest Time

Jenn and Zach are very artistic and that was evident in the wedding favors they had made for every guest and vendor… a wooden book with each name engaved and filled with items such as a personal dinner name plate, colored pencils with a custom Jenn and Zach coloring book and a red stocking cap that everyone wore for the group photo taken near the end of brunch.

The karaoke was a big hit, so much so, there was not really any time for dancing. Guests signed up to sing everything from “Man In The Mirror” and “Fat Bottomed Girls” to “Wannabe” and “Uptown Funk”. We finished the afternoon with the newlyweds and wedding party leading everyone in Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

Abby’s Bat Mitzvah Party Beth Israel Portland

 
Abby’s rockin’ Bat Mitzvah party took place at Congregation Beth Israel in Northwest Portland, Oregon on Saturday, November 10, 2018.
 
Guests arrived from the ceremony and Havdala held across the street around 6:20pm. I played a variety of background music selections during cocktails and the sit-down dinner from artists such as, Maroon 5, Imagine Dragons and Abby’s favorites, Bruno Mars and Pink.
 
During dinner, I got the games started for the kids by giving each of them a gold coin and letting them know the first three kids that bring me 10 coins will get a Starbucks gift card. With 50 kids attending, there was a lot of convincing going on and we got our three winners.  I then led the kids in a rousing two rounds of the scavenger hunt and Coke & Pepsi before opening the dance floor to everyone with ‘The Hora’ and chair-raising.
 

 
After rolling a few older songs that seemed to be especially appreciated byr the adults, the dance floor became jam packed for “Uptown Funk,” “I Gotta Feeling,” Abby’s request for “Shake It Off” and more.
