Letting Loose At Corporate Team Building Event

 
On Thursday night, March 14, 2019, I was at the Embassy Suites in Downtown Portland for a Kennewick-based company’s corporate team building event in the Queen Marie Ballroom. I setup early before guests arrived and a murder mystery dinner performance preceded the dancing, so I didn’t actually start the music until around 9pm. And this group was ready to go.

There were about 60 guests and including me, I think only three were men. Five songs played and already an impromtu train and limbo broke out 🙂 All the music was well-received, especially “Single Ladies,” “Love Shack,” and requests for “Cupid Shuffle.”

Non-stop recent hits, along with 80’s and 90’s hip hop throwbacks kept the energy going strong until we wrapped at 11:30pm.

Thank you Angie for choosing PRO DJs again. This group has a corporate team building event every year in different cities. I had the opportunity to perform for them one time before on the Oregon Coast in Manzanita back in 2014.
 

McMenamins Edgefield Karaoke Wedding

 
Christina and Bryson’s karaoke wedding reception was held Saturday, March 2, 2019 at McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon. They were actually married one week earlier in Sedona, Arizona, so this was a reception only for friends and family in the Portland area.
 
After most guests had gathered in Blackberry Hall, the newlyweds arrived around 6:30pm. I announced their grand entrance and they walked in to Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.” Dinner was ready about 20 minutes later and during this time, I played a mix of classic jazz selections as requested by the bride and groom.

When inquiring with PRO DJs, Christina noted they were looking for a DJ who can also allow for our guests to sing karaoke after dinner. Following a short video of highlights from their Arizona wedding, Bryson was the first to go, singing The Cars “Just What I Needed.” From there, I encouraged others to sign-up to sing their favorites, but also opened the dance floor.

After a few more karaoke performances that included Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” it was mostly dancing for the next hour. The energy really picked up for “Uptown Funk,” “Shut Up and Dance” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” but it was LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” that really moved the groom and fired up the crowd.

Karaoke returned for the last few songs including Bryson and his friends performing Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So.”

A long day of activities that included a late dinner at the Newport Aquarium didn’t slow down this group who danced and sung well past Midnight.

“Rich came early and got everything set up. When we walked in he had good tunes going. We did Karaoke but when people didn’t want to sing he had people out on the dance floor. I appreciated that he talked when he needed to but didn’t by any means try to be the center of attention and he wasn’t overbearing.” -Kimberly R., FAST Enterprises – Salem, OR

Made our wedding day that much better! -Michelle Love (Michelle & Heather’s Wedding) – Salem, OR (4-14-18)

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)
