DJ’s Put It In The Corner

<p class=”MsoNormal”><strong><em><span style=”color: purple;”>Put it in the corner</span></em></strong></p> <p class=”MsoNormal”><span>Recently I received pictures to scan for a photo montage. The images included </span><span>photos from a previous event, a Bar Mitzvah, that also had a Disc Jockey, from </span><span>another company.</span></p> <p class=”MsoNormal”><span>This DJ did what most DJs do, he set up center, next to the dance floor. This </span><span>Bar Mitzvah included a candle lighting service, popular for such events, and </span><span>the candles were placed on a table centered on the dance floor.</span></p> <p class=”MsoNormal”><span>Which means every picture of the candle lighting service included the DJ in the </span><span>background. No way to crop him out of the image. Every picture of this special </span><span>moment included the DJ – Cuing music, taking a drink (of water I hope), </span><span>equipment cables and cords, and brown boxes of props with the logo of </span><span>Oriental Trading in plain view. Can anyone say UGLY?</span></p> <p class=”MsoNormal”><span>When it was my turn to perform for this client, another Bar Mitzvah, in the same </span><span>venue\room, I set up off to the side, and provided a video screen as the center </span><span>piece for the dance floor and the candle lighting service. Projecting a big </span><span>picture of the Bar Mitzvah boy in a baseball uniform to match his sports </span><span>theme.</span></p> <p class=”MsoNormal”><span>I was still plenty visible off to the side, just not in the way of the audience and </span><span>cameras enjoying special dances and activities. A wireless microphone and </span><span>a few steps to the center of the dance floor made me the center of attention </span><span>when needed, and out of sight when not.</span></p> <p class=”MsoNormal”><span>Respectfully, prove that it truly is all about your client, and put it in the corner!</span></p>

Last Dance

<p>Last dance for the queen of disco, Donna Summer, she died today at 63 from lung cancer. A five time Grammy winner, in the 70’s and 80’s she topped the charts with hits like Hot Stuff, Bad Girls, and Last Dance, from the 1978 movie, Thank God It’s Friday, which won an Oscar for best original song.</p> <p>Other hits included Enough is Enough, No More Tears, her duet with Barbra Streisand, and MacArthur Park Suite, an 18 minute disco classic from her Live and More album that made her the first female artist to have a #1 single and #1 album on the Billboard charts at the same time.</p> <p>For years DJ’s across the United States closed their clubs and shows with Last Dance. Maybe it’s time to start that tradition again.</p>

Bar\Bat Mitzvah Kids eat, everyone else dines

<p>At formal youth events like Bar \ Bat Mitzvahs adults typically<br />prefer to enjoy their meal. Usually 1 hour plus. Whether it’s a<br />sit down meal or a buffet. Young people on the other hand<br />only need 10 minutes. If that. LOL</p> <p>One solution is to stagger the meal times. Let the adults savor<br />their meal, while your entertainer plays an interactive game<br />with the kids.</p> <p>A well designed interactive game that is not too loud will serve<br />as entertainment for the adults and keep kids occupied.</p> <p>Approximately 15 minutes later the Bar\Bat Mitzvah boy\girl<br />can lead his\her friends in a Conga Line to their very own<br />buffet line.</p> <p>Of course there is also that eat and dance at the same time<br />thing about Jewish events. But that’s a tip for another day</p>
