Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Bar/Bat Mitzvahs

We guarantee there will be no kids hanging out in the hallways. We do not tolerate food fights nor do we allow kids to make figurines from candle wax.

Our Disc Jockeys and Emcees will keep them so busy and having so much fun that they won't have time to run around.

We also guarantee we'll make your child's Bar or Bat Mitzvah the one their friends and your friends will talk about. Everyone will shine. And we promise not to forget about the adults...

We will get to know your family in a free consultation. At that time, we'll listen to your concerns and address them. We'll even put in our two cents. Here's a Questionnaire that will help customize your party.

Cocktail Hour - "Our Bonding Hour"
Our Emcee and Disc Jockey use this time to get acquainted with the young adults. While the adults are mingling, our professionals keep them occupied by playing games and their favorite tunes. Black Tie DJ Entertainment 's Rule #1: Make sure the kids like us and that we become their friends. Rule #2: Make sure we always think one step ahead of the kids and be well organized. 

Sequence of Events
In case you were curious, here is the general sequence of events at a Bar or Bat Mitzvah:

  • High energy Grand Entrance of the family of Bar-Mitzvah Boy or Bat-Mitzvah Girl
  • High energy Grand Entrance of the Boy or the Girl
  • The Hora…with or without chair
  • Havdallah (if party is held after Shabbat)
  • Ha Motzi
  • The Meal
  • Candle lighting Ceremony***(see song selections below)

Between each activity, we are entertaining guests with music, follow-a-long dances and games.

Tradition! Tradition! We think it's important to play Hebrew music at the Mitzvah. Of course the extent of how music is up to your discretion. We recommend starting the reception off with a high-energy introduction of your child (with or without family members). We'll go right into our own version of a "Hava Nagilah Medley".

Our disc jockeys are well trained about specific types of Jewish songs. Our library consists of Klezmer, Hassidic, Ashkenazi ("Davide Melech Yisrael" , "Tzena-Tzena"), Sephardic ("Linda Linda", "Rona Sheli") and Israeli Folk music ("Mayim Mayim", "Miserlou").

As far as American music goes, we offer the latest and the greatest music. 

Nothing But Good 'Ol Fun and Games
Believe us when we tell you that your child knows exactly what games to play and the ones that their friends are sick and tired of playing. For this reason, we have created a slew of innovative and challenging games that we've patented. Of course, we always can coordinate the following classic games as well:

  • Pepsi/7-up
  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Lip Sync
  • Trivia - Battle of the Sexes

High-energy, friendly dancers are a must! They motivate your guests to take an active part in the Bat or Bat Mitzvah. These guys and gals teach them the latest dance steps, lead the follow-a-long dances and add excitement to the party. 

60% of the Bar or Bat Mitzvahs that we book use our ambience lighting. And that's only because the other 40% are held during the day. In other words, it's vital to have lighting at your party. Just ask your kid. Call or email for quotes.

Other Services
Would you to have a candy maker at your party? We have relationships with many party vendors who offer FUN services.

Considering having a slide show or video montage of your child's life? Our multi-media presentation is well worth the effort and price and has been known to provoke some 'aahhh's', 'ohhhh's' and 'heehee's!
