Bar Mitzvah Bat Mitzvah Parties Portland And Sherwood Oregon

 
Rich Ellis had the honor of being the DJ at two separate Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitvah parites on Saturday, June 24, 2023, starting with Rose, Max and Jonah’s B’nai Mitzvah celebration held in Community Hall at the Southeast Campus of Portland Community College in Portland, Oregon.
 
Guests were already seated for the ceremony in the same room as I quietly setup the equipment. As soon as it concluded, lunch was ready and the background music began, featuring classical selections as requested by the family.
 
The kids went through the buffet first and after eating were ready for some games that included name that tune, a scavenger hunt and Coke & Pepsi. They also did the limbo before all guests were invited to the dance floor for “The Hora” and chair raising. Most everyone joined in, lifting and celebrating the kids and their family.

There were requests for everything from “Dancing Queen” to “Boot Scootin’ Boogie”, “I Will Survive” and even “The Charleston”.
 
 
Two hours later, I traveled to Sherwood for Tyce’s Bar Mitzvah party at Heart of Rock Farm.
 
There were about 60 guests in attendance with ample space inside and out to gather. I learned later that many of the kids were cousins who only see each other every four years or so and they spent a lot of time outside catching up with each other. Still, we managed a scavenger hunt after dinner before all guests came together on the dance floor for “The Hora” and chair raising.

Weekend Fun At Oregon Zoo “Zoo Brew”

 
PRO DJs once again had the priviledge of spinning the hits at the Oregon Zoo “Zoo Brew” with two DJs both nights on Friday, June 9th and Saturday, June 10th, 2023.
 
DJ Rich Ellis had the entry plaza Friday night and DJ Rod Krause on Saturday night. DJ Steve Marker performed both nights in Polar Plaza.
 
As attendees were making their way out near the end of Zoo Brew, many stopped where they were to dance… sometimes there’s no escaping a good beat.

Alina’s MJCC Bat Mitzvah Celebration

 
Alina and her friends and family had a great time at her Bat Mitzvah celebration held at Mittleman Jewish Community Center in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, June 3, 2023.
 
As guests arrived, I played a variety of background music selections that included family favorites “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers and “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” by Tears For Fears, while the kids enjoyed the photo booth and Henna tattoos.
 
Following dinner, I led the kids with some games (Would Alina Rather?, Scavenger Hunt, Coke & Pepsi) before inviting the adults to join us on the dance floor for the traditional “The Hora” with chair raising of Alina.

This was a small gathering of around 50+ guests, but there was plenty of energy on the dance floor the entire evening. Everyone had a great time dancing to fun hit music that featured many classics requested by Alina… “Footloose”, “Funkytown”, “”Let’s Go Crazy” and more.

Naomi’s High Energy Bat Mitzvah Party At Congregation Beth Israel Portland Oregon

 
Naomi’s high energy Bat Mitzvah party took place at Congregation Beth Israel in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
 
Guests arrived from the ceremony and Havdala held across the street around 6:20pm. I had a variety of music selections playing in the background, but that didn’t last long as the kids were ready for games before dinner, including Naomi trivia and her request that we play Coke and Pepsi. She is a big fan of Taylor Swift, so we changed the team names to Taylor and Swift ­čÖé
 
Dinner started around 7pm. With many family members visiting from Detroit, I was asked to play a variety of softer Motown hits as background music for dinner. After Naomi’s parents welcomed everyone and toasted the Bat Mitzvah girl, I invited everyone out to the dance floor for “The Hora” and chair-raising.

PRO DJs had the opportunity to perform at the holiday party for this company in 2019 and 2021 and the dance floor was packed again this year from start to finish as guests danced to everything from “September” and “Billie Jean” to “Uptown Funk” and “Cupid Shuffle.”

This was the third time PRO DJs performed for this company since 2019. We were warned in the past by the owner that electricians are boring and probably won’t dance much :). That wasn’t the case for a small group who had a great time dancing for about an hour non-stop. Even Santa joined in the fun.
