I recently had the pleasure of being the MC and DJ for Mitchell’s Sports themed Bar Mitzvah. The reception was held at the Downingtown Country Club, located in Chester County, Pennsylvania. From the moment Mitchell and I first spoke I knew it was going to be an awesome time! Mitchell and I discussed music, games and other details about the event, as well as our mutual love for sports. We even decided to incorporate sports challenges into his Bar Mitzvah party.
On a beautiful Saturday morning, my Crew and I arrived at Downingtown Country Club to set up. The affair started, as most do, with separate cocktail hours for the kids and adults. Mitchell had been to numerous Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs and knew that a lot of his friends would not know one other, as they came from different circles. We decided that this would be the perfect time to change that. The Cutting Edge Crew created some challenging ice-breaker activities in order to get all the kids better acquainted. During this time we also decided to do our famous game of Coke and Pepsi, as well as a soccer ball head-bounce challenge.
After the cocktail hour I introduced the members of Mitchell’s family, each to their own “theme” song. Next, we did traditional blessings and of course a huge Hora circle, with everyone going up in the chair! By the end of lunch it was time to rock out to all of Mitchell’s requests. making sure he took the time to dance with his mom. They chose “Count on Me” by Bruno Mars as their song. As the guests wrapped up dessert Mitchell and his guests had a huge limbo contest on which some adults decided to join in on the fun! Before we knew it, it was time for “Shout”, as the last song of the day. All the guests came out and went crazy sending Mitchell off into manhood with a bang! The mitzvah boy (or should I say man) was the star of the show, and spent the entire afternoon mingling with his guests, whether it was on the dance floor, at a table, or during cocktail hour. He also made sure his friends and family all had a great time.
It was such a pleasure to MC and DJ Mitchell’s Bar Mitzvah. I want to thank everyone involved, including my dancers and DJs from Cutting Edge Entertainment. A special shout out to Mike Duretz for the great photos, as well as a Mazel Tov to Mitchell’s awesome family. Thank you for having Cutting Edge as part of your special day!
