We just got ahold of the photos from Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah, courtesy of Sharon Pulcino ofCreative Visions Photography– 714-838-9996 and they capture all the energy and excitement of that special evening. The event went real smooth thanks to the efforts of Cindy Lee at theUCI Club in Irvine, and of course the family Barry, Jantana, Jacob and their fireball little brother were equally easy to work for. We did play a few games that everyone knows like “LIMBO” and “Scavenger Hunt/Musical Chairs” but we also included a game you may ot see very often at other Mitzvah’s called “DUEL” which is a tricky version of the 2 man tug-o-war, great for Girls, Boys, & Men!
We have handled 3 out 4 Flietman Boy’s Bar Mitzvah’s, and Jack was the Final one this year atPrego Restaurantin Irvine (now closed 🙁 ). On a side note: this was a really great place to have a party in Orange County, it had a great vibe and what a great change from the no window ballrooms we are always in. So Jacks theme was Hockey, (Our first hockey party since our Stanley Cup Party for the Anaheim Ducks), and I decided to come up with a new game to work with his theme and Presto we created the “Hockey Challenge”, similar to our Basketball Free Throw, and our Quarterback Challenge, but I think much trickier and harder, (watch the video to see it). This was also the first time we added DJ Dayna to the mixx and she added that cool girl DJ vibe we are always looking for. And finally the hockey puck inspired cupcakes were some of the best cupcakes around, truly TASTY; I will post that info when i get it. So Hats or Hockey helmets off to the Flietman’s, especially Margie who has been one of our biggest supporters in the OC, and we hope to see them at many more upcoming events.
We are super lucky to have such great families that book us for all their events, and Lisa & Rob Rutkowski are no exception. We (DJ Alvis & DJ Brian) handled Benjamin’s Bar Mitzvah a few years ago and now it was time for the infectious energy bomb Annie! They had Ben’s party at Dave & Busters the first time and because it was such a good vibe they decided why mess with a good thing (same thing about us) and they had it there again. Shannon McNally, is the operation manager atDave & Busters, and if your looking for a unique place without a lot of hassles you should give her a call. A super cool person, (and I run into few special ones as an LA DJ).
Annie is part of the Theater/Dance crowd; yes crazy and an Orange County DJ’s Dream crowd to perform for. When you watch the video link below, you will see that her and her friends don’t need much encouragement, and when it was time for the Harlem Shake…well just watch. Lastly many thanks to Lisa’s (Mom) over the top, but super sweet Tasty Sounds creative balloon shout out with her friend, it was by far the best of the year. Mazel Tov to the whole Rutkowski family!
Yet another successful event at theUCI Club in Irvine, with the amazing Cindy Lee heading the venue. This time it was for Ben Dynes Kung Fu Mitzvah on August 6, 2011. This was a great party. Brian took the front man position, while I spun on the decks. When we started out with our follow-along dance, there was not one person sitting. Everybody was participating and having a fun time. That’s how we like to start all of our parties. The Minieri family were great to work for, along with all their family and friends who attended. We even came up with a mod on our “DUEL“ game Karate Kid style. Enjoy our video with the Tasty tune “Let’s Dance & Stuff“ (David Bowie & Deadmau5).
