We had the unique opportunity to entertain for the Kushnir families LA Bar Mitzvah at the 94th Aero Squadron. The 94th Aero Squadron is a very unique location, and if you’ve never seen it, it resembles an old bombed out Chateau from Europe during the WWI era. We lit one of those bombed out looking rooms with red up-lights giving the room a dramatic feel. The guests all ate inside, but we had all of the entertainment, (DJ, Video Screens and Photo Booth) outside.
As you watch the video you can see everyone dancing the Hora around the fire pit. The video shows two examples of games being played. The 2 person tug-o-war is a game we don’t play a lot but boy is it a hit with everyone. At the end of the video, you will see the family testimonial and you will get too see Bruno’s Pharrell inspired hat; I can’t wait till he’s in his 30’s and looks back at that hat :).
It was a pleasure working with everyone, the Kushnir Family and Bruno our Mitzvah star. It was also easy working with Karen & Emily our 94th Staff Banquet Managers. Finally, I want to thank DJ Brian Pierce and our dancer Lori and our super friendly Photo Booth girl Sarah.
We recently handled two Mitzvah’s at the newly renovated Mulholland Tennis Club and both events went great. One was for a cool skater dude named Danny and the other one was for the fun spitfire Sasha. The club itself can be hard to find because it sits near the top of Laurel Canyon on Mulholland Drive, but that’s a plus. It has one of the best views of Los Angeles and the Valley, from its giant glass windows right next to the dance floor. If you’re looking for a location that doesn’t have that tired boring ballroom feel, check out this location and speak to Meagan about all the details. I love the huge dance floor that is right next to the cool sunken bar. This setup keeps your party happening near the dance floor at all times, perfect for any Mulholland Tennis Club Los Angeles DJ.
Danny’s awesome party was filled with the energy that only athletic teenage youths can bring to a rocket-fueled event. My single mom, Allison Stein from Santa Monica, knocked it out of the park with how she handled the whole exhausting day. Here is a tiny slice of that evening.
The Devillier family was so much fun to work with. I loved that they wanted to put the Seattle 90’s grunge sound into much of the evening. Mom & Dad walked into “Black Hole Sun”, and Sasha walked into “American Idiot” by Green Day, such cool choices. In the video, you can see the big windows and overlooking the city and a small glimpse of our game Walla Balla. Enjoy their recap video and follow us on facebook.
Hannah Katz had her Bat Mitzvah at the Celebrations Room in Costa Mesa, which is under the Turnip Rose Umbrella, and it was a very magical afternoon. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this location yet please go see it and talk to Chrissy Sherbanee who is the Director of Special Events, and if your short on time watch the video, because I was trying to capture every angle possible. Chrissy and her staff are amazing and the effort they make will create a really smooth event. The Tasty Sounds crew are always on top of it, but these guys take it to the next level, (in a good way). Also on the party was one of our favorite Photographers Ron Levy, who always makes our day much easier. Go check out his website, and yes he’s in Orange County, but all my Los Angeles people should be checking him out, he’s that good. And finally Hannah & the whole Katz gang, what a great family. Hannah is like a young Selena Gomez, very poised throughout the whole day, not a misstep (even in 7 inch heels). Mazel Tov to everyone involved, including one of my new DJ’s, Franciswho recently moved here from Hawaii (an amazing battle/Scratch DJ) who got to participate in his very first Mitzvah. Now go watch the VIDEO!!!!
