Adam Oded, AKA Philly Custom DJ, has been DJing private events since New Year's Eve 2002. His mobile DJ system is ideal for couples having a wedding in a barn, tent, backyard, museum, restaurant or social hall. He also has experience playing at birthday parties, bat mitzvahs, bar mitzvahs, organizational and corporate events. His motto is, "I'll listen to you and play the music you love."

Spring Ford Country Club Bar Mitzvah

Music for this bar mitzvah featured current pop music for the kids and dance favorites for the grown-ups at the Spring Ford Country Club in Royersford, PA. The bar mitzvah screened the music selections personally, rating each song with a yes, no or meh. The Philly Custom DJ team was happy to fulfill the bar mitzvah’s wishes, particularly his desire to be hoisted up on a chair during the hora.

We were especially happy to fulfill the first ever request made by a 3 year old guest. He asked for “I Like To Move It” from the movie Madagascar. When we played the song, the boy’s face lit up and he did a wild dance for the whole song. We wanted to play him songs all night. Continue reading Spring Ford Country Club Bar Mitzvah

Hotel Palomar Bat Mitzvah

These kids knew every participation dance there is!

This fun Bat Mitzvah was held at the Burnham Ballroom of the Hotel Palomar in the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia.  The older crowd rocked out to the Psychedelic Furs, Duran Duran, and INXS.  The bat mitzvah, and her friends surprised the adults and the DJ team with their knowledge of participation dances.  After doing the Cupid Shuffle, the Cha-Cha Slide and Cotton Eyed Joe, the girls demanded the Electric Slide and the Macarena.

We closed the party appropriately with Simple Minds – Don’t You Forget About Me. Continue reading Hotel Palomar Bat Mitzvah
