Maddy and Adam’s Wedding at Pinstripes in Oakbrook

DJ Shannon and Assistant Gabrielle had the honor to help Maddy and Adam to celebrate their wedding at Pinstripes in Oakbrook. Their reception took place immediately after tying the knot at St Charles Borromeo Catholic Church. The guests started the night with cocktails in the bar area before making their way into the reception hall, where we provided Full Room Uplighting. The uplighting was set to a cyan to match the navy theme and worked well with the beautiful centerpieces provided by Robert’s Floral Design in Chicago. 

We started the night with the bridal party introductions. After a family style dinner and toasts from the family members, we started with the first dances. The couple shared dances with their parents, including a father daughter dance and a mother son dance. As soon as the dance floor opened, it exploded with energy. The night was full of dancing, as this group came to party! The guests were having so much fun, they organized their own conga line through the tables in the room. And when the limbo broke out in the middle of the dance floor, we were prepared with our roll-out limbo stick. While we don’t use it at many weddings, it is great to have when there is a group ready to limbo!

At the time the couple would normally do a cake cutting, the couple decided to do a pizza cutting! We love when couples put their unique spins on traditional wedding events. And since we know the couple doesn’t love cake, they decided to have a Donut Bar and Sweets Table provided by Dynamic Desserts.

Congratulations Maddy and Adam! We hope your marriage is filled with as much fun and dancing as you and your guests at the wedding!

Will’s Bar Mitzvah at the Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus

Repeat clients are our favorite!

Our team recently was able to rock yet another Mitzvah for this family! Will and his family and friends rocked with us all afternoon long at the Hyatt Lodge at the McDonald’s Campus in Oakbrook, IL! We brought out our Mitzvah team which had multiple dance motivators (Jeffrey and Jamie) as well as a dedicated DJ (DJ Terry) and our emcee, Paul. It is such an honor for us to get ‘the call’ when a past client books a venue and knows who they are going to be hiring for their entertainment!

Will and his family belong to Congregation Etz Chaim in Lombard, IL, where we work with synagogue members quite often in helping plan their son or daughter’s big day!

When people are looking for awesome Bar or Bat Mitzvah entertainment in the Chicago suburbs, we love to help them out and turn their son/daughter’s dream party into reality!

Check out how much fun the party was in the pictures below!

Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah

Just recently my team and I (Paul) were able to work with the Rabbi of Congregation Etz Chaim in Lombard to provide DJ and Entertainment Services for her son’s Bar Mitzvah at Pinstripes in Oakbrook, IL.   This was a very special Bar Mitzvah for me to work since I’ve known the Rabbi ever since she came to begin working at Congregation Etz Chaim, and I’ve known Jacob since he was born. 

We had a blast playing games with the teens such as huggy bear, a hula hoop contest, musical chairs, the limbo, and the newspaper game which kept everyone up and on the dance floor the entire time. Jacob and his family invited a really great crowd who kept us busy dancing the entire afternoon showing everyone (adults included) some new dances. We also had a video montage for Jacob which showed pictures of him, his family, and his friends throughout his life.
