On Saturday Afternoon, November 12 of 2011, the Cutting Edge team and I had the absolute pleasure of being the DJ entertainment for Cally’s Bat Mitzvah party. First, it’s important to say that Cally and her parents were awesome to work with. The fun really began at the planning meeting, where everyone was laughing and having fun picking songs and games for the party. Cally’s parents – Marcy and Ross – were so laid back and so enthusiastic, that that feeling trickled down to Cally and her brother, and everyone seemed psyched even before the party started.
At the party, held at The William Penn Inn, the mood was electric. Often times, afternoon parties – or luncheons – for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah can have a different groove than an evening event, but not in the case of this Bat Mitzvah. From the minute (literally the minute) Cally and her friends came in the room, they were dancing non-stop. Of course, the adults quickly followed, and The William Penn Inn rocked from the beginning to the end of the Bat Mitzvah as if the guests had battery packs filled with energy. Grandparents, parents and kids alike were rocking out on the dance floor to everything DJ Adam would play, and our dancers did a great job of getting everyone involved in everything from games, to a soul train line.
The staff at The William Penn Inn did a fantastic job of executing the time line, to serving great food. I found their staff to be almost as enthusiastic about their work as the guests were about partying… But perhaps the energy was just that contagious. Sergio, the photographer, also did a phenomenal job of capturing the action (as you can see in these photos), without being intrusive… He was just that good. All in all, it was a great day. Great guests, great team, great party.
Thanks again to Cally’s parents for being such fun clients to work with, and to Cally (and her friends), for being so darn cool. It was an honor to be your MC and to have you choose Cutting Edge to provide the DJ entertainment for the Bat Mitzvah. I look forward to seeing you again soon.
