Cleveland Holiday Party Entertainment

Using a DJ for your Holiday Celebration

by Guest Blogger, Melinda Carter

For many people who host parties, the planning process can certainly end up bringing on a lot of pressure and difficulty. Taking care of the entertainment aspect of a large party, specifically a holiday event, can be the source of a lot of stress for a party planner. Even for some smaller occasions, thinking about hiring DJ and entertainment source may seem odd to some, but having music entertainment can not only ensure a good time, but also reduce stress for holiday party planners.

For large scale holiday events, ensuring that there’s good music and entertainment can sometimes be a major roadblock, especially if the party planner isn’t that familiar with sound systems. This is aside from the fact that the planners already have to worry about guests, food, activities and a host of other items to take care of.

Corporate holiday events offer a great chance to use a DJ for music entertainment. While the awards or speaking portion of these events won’t usually have a DJ, music is often a necessity for these types of parties where employees can bring their significant others  for an enjoyable company party. Having a DJ at holiday corporate events allows the opportunity to create the social atmosphere that’s needed to make for a successful celebration.

Community holiday parties and large scale holiday parties can also benefit greatly with a DJ on hand. Whether it’s a Christmas party for a local organization or a large scale New Year’s celebration, having a DJ sets a great backdrop for a good gathering. One excellent trend in the area lately is the increase in community events at Columbus apartment complexes and neighborhood activity centers. These types of gatherings tend to bring in plenty of attendees from the area. Having a DJ in these activity centers will take care of the music portion, while event planners can handle the rest of the activities with minimal stress.

Of course, the necessity of a DJ is not just limited to holiday parties. As 2012 gets into full swing, wedding season will come along, as well as a host of other types of corporate parties and events where a DJ would be a great addition. In the end, a DJ can help make the gathering more memorable by adding good entertainment and lightening the planning.

Cleveland Event Lighting at The Sarah Benedict House

Cleveland Venue Showcase

Cleveland Lighting DJs, Rock The House, were honored to be chosen as the lighting designers on December 15, 2011 by Personal Touch by Covesa event planners. This event was held at the historic Sarah Benedict House in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The event’s goal was to show the venue off to prospective clients for event space rental. Along with Rock The House, a small number of select preferred event professionals were asked to participate in this showcase.

Rock The House was able to create a custom look for this event through lighting design. Our uplights throughout the building created a really warm look for guests. In addition to the lighting design inside the facility, we were also able to create a visually interesting look on the facade of the building as well. Since the event took place in December, we were decided to project a snowflake design on the building with our gobos.

Cleveland Lighting DJs at Sushi Rock Beachwood

Studio 54 at Sushi Rock Beachwood

This past week Cleveland Lighting DJs, Rock The House Entertainment, provided a variety of services to Sushi Rock Beachwood, Ohio in order to transform this already impressive venue into a Studio 54 themed event. By utilizing additional speakers, the there were more people on the dance floor because it felt like more of an event than a dining experience.

The lighting changed the look for the facility drastically. With uplighting, feature lighting on the go-go dancers, background lighting, and other styles of lights, we were able to create a look that made the space look different than usual. With event rentals such as a red carpet, guests really had a V.I.P experience.

We would love to meet with you to discuss how we can create your event’s theme.
