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.
We have handled 2 other OC Bar Mitzvah’s and one Bat Mitzvah at the El Adobe Restaurant in San Juan Capistrano and each time we have worked here it has been the most amazing time. This is a great place for a Bar Mitzvah, OC Wedding or Holiday Corporate event; it has a ton of room to move around, a huge bar and the very best moment is when a member of the super chill staff, hits the button and the roof opens up to the beautiful night sky, (it really is amazing). The Mexican food they serve is also spectacular, just wished we lived a little bit closer.
Danielle Widerman had her rocking Doctor Who themed Bat Mitzvah with all her friends and our super skilled MC Brian Pierce led the charge for Tasty Sounds. This was his second event for the family. He handled Courtney’s Bat Mitzvah 7 years ago, and this one was just as fun. While the catering staff changed the room over from the service that was held earlier, Newport Beach Bat Mitzvah DJ Brian led some games outside on the field for prizes (Classic Battle Roy-ale Hula Hoop), and when everyone was having cocktails on the patio, a company called the “San Diego TARDIS company (Karen 810-293-7707) came in and set up a British Style Phone Booth, which if you watch the show Dr. Who is called a T.A.R.D.I.S., and a big part of the show, (it’s basically the spaceship). So when it was time for the grand entrance, we led the family in from the doors, but we hid our Newport Bat Mitzvah girl Danielle in the Phone Booth and she popped out when we played the Dr. Who theme song, with a couple of Cosplay Doctors.
We are lucky that we get to handle so many Orange County Bar Mitzvah’s, and get to have special families like the Widerman’s who re-book us for many big family moments. Have fun watching our own personal highlight reel of the day.

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!!!!
We are very lucky to have such truly giving clients who really love what we are doing for their families and are willing to tell the whole world all about it. Being an MC or DJ in Southern California for over 20 years is the easy part of my job; convincing a family that doesn’t know what my company can do and to TRUST us not to mess it up, that is the WORK. Maybe this video will make my job a little easier.
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!
