Portland Bar Mitzvah Columbia Edgewater Country Club
Asher was ready to have a good time at his Portland Bar Mitzvah Columbia Edgewater Country Club held on Saturday, June 4, 2022 with most of his friends having arrived before the 6pm start time. This event was originally scheduled for October 2021, but delayed because of Covid.
There were many things planned including gaming tables (blackjack and poker), as well as games with the DJ (me) before dinner. Asher’s favorite sports are basketball and football, perfect for the ice breaker basketball vs. football pass. The kids had a great time with that and the scavenger that followed, as well Blazers vs. Eagles (a variation of the soda drink game) and a limbo that ended right before everyone gathered for Havdalah and several speeches by the family.
After dinner, Asher’s dad Scott sung and played guitar on two original songs he had written, including one called “Runnin’ from Covid-19”. Guests enjoyed singing along and right after he was finished, Scott asked me to play the electric version of the song recorded in a studio. That led nicely into me inviting everyone out for dancing to “The Hora” and chair raising.
From there, adults and kids danced for almost two hours to fun hit songs like I Gotta Feeling” and “Shut Up and Dance”, along with family favorites “September” by Earth, Wind and Fire, “Super Freak” by Rick James and more.
Mazel Tov Asher and thank you mom Joni for choosing PRO DJs.
