So the awesome married team ofRon Levy Photography (949-280-6001) just sent us some brilliant pictures from the B’nai Mitzvah we handled last March at the Hyatt Regency in Newport. Tasty Sounds handled the entertainment and the lighting production. It was a great team effort on everyone’s part including Michelle Capanelli from the Hyatt, Ron & Gabrielle Levy,Shawna Yamamoto of Yamamoto Design and Melinda Gilchrist of Gilchrist Video. Both families couldn’t have been any cooler to work for, and the girls and all their friends where really delightful. This was our second event for Nancy & Paul Schneider and it was great seeing Nick get to kick back without any pressures on him. The Tasty Team was myself (DJ Alvis), DJ Brian, and Dancers Billy & Jen who got the crowd rocking, and our Creative Lighting Tech George brought it all home.
This is our second time working for the Rosenberg family, and once again it was a great experience. Kevin & Julie are the perfect parents who know what they want and step back and let you deliver it. We had done Josh’s party in 2008 and it was also at theCenter Clubin Costa Mesa, and this time for Shaina it was a jungle club theme. I had DJ Brian with me as well as my Two best dancers Billy & Jen who always bring their A game to every event. Our ultra cool Black Light package was added on as well as some of our club lighting, which as you can tell in the video really gives this great room an extra pump. Enjoy the video and listen for those girls singing Katy Perry at the top of their lungs, YOW!
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.
