Team Member of The Month – Ernie Scales

Posted on April 28, 2012 in All Posts

Ernie ROCKS!

Rock The House Entertainment is rolling out a formal Team Member of The Month program coming out of our 2012 All Staff Meeting this April. That meant that management was faced with setting a precedent and prototype for this honor. What a relief it was for us to have just the person…Ernie Scales.

Head of Human Resources at Rock The House, Ryan Konikoff said:

“Selecting Ernie was an easy choice. So far, he holds the lead for the most requests in 2012 by clients. Every MC always asks to have him on their events, and he lives the idea of leading by example. Ernie takes dance classes in his free time to learn all different types of dance that may help him as a RTH dancer, he always has a smile on his face, and you can tell he just really love the job”

In the year and a half that Ernie has been with us, he has shown a eagerness to learn, consistency, drive, and character . This isn’t even mentioning his amazing skills! Don’t just take our word for it! He made it farther than hundreds of other competitive dancers at the 2012 “So You Think You Can Dance” Season 9 try outs in Los Angeles. You can read more about that fascinating experience here.

Ernie says it best:

“What makes me a unique dancer is my passion. I use dancing to describe who I am and how I feel. I basically use dance to let people see my true personality. I live for dance and I dance to live. What makes a dancer unique is not about their moves it’s about heart.”

When we told Ernie he was selected to be the Team Member of the month he was grateful. He then told us he didn’t feel like he was a member of a team, however. To him, he’s a member of a family. We could’t agree more!

L’Nique’s Fete 2012 Open House Event

Posted on April 5, 2012 in DJ Cleveland,Lighting & Drapery

Event Creators Finally Get A Party Of Their Own

No one knows how to party like party makers, That said, no one is more critical of events they attend, either. Knowing about that double-edged sword L’Nique was able to put on a perfect event for those with the most discriminating tastes. March 22nd, 2012 was the annual open house for the event linen company, L’Nique. One of the secrets to the success of this event is – collaboration. A number of the best creative event designers were asked to take part in creating this unique and very looked forward to annual event. Everyone had their own area to design and make their own but it all still fit within the overall feeling of the event.

Check out this video wrap-up of the event:

L’Nique’ 2012 Fete Open House Event from RTH Multimedia on Vimeo.

Rock The House had the pre and post event tent space to design. Our lighting set the mood for two distinctly different vibes. The pre-event time was one of networking, hors d’oeuvres, and signature cocktails. What really told people they were at something special was the live performance by one of the region’s most sought after live bands, Run Avril Run.

The next stage of the event was located in L’Nique’s warehouse. Every once in a while you would see something that would remind you that this was in a working warehouse. Most of the time, however, guests were almost overwhelmed with all the inspiration. Different designers brought their A-Game in a collaborative and healthy competition. It’s what drives true stars in our industry to create memorable and original works of art.

Following the innovative design-scapes of the warehouse, guests let their hair down and hit the dance floor in a transformed tent area and dance floor. Rock The House provided a club-like atmosphere for a group ready to ROCK on the dance floor. The bar has been raised once again for this event and we are happy to have been asked to be a part of this special event.

Benjamin Got ROCKED! Cleveland Mitzvah DJs at The Temple Tifereth Israel

Why Doesn’t YOUR Event Look Like This?

Benjamin got ROCKED at the The Temple Tifereth Israel, in Beachwood, Ohio on March 17, 2012.

Cleveland, Ohio Bar and Bat Mitzvah DJs, Rock The House entertained hundreds of guests at a truly remarkable Bar Mizvah. Known throughout the Northeast Ohio region as the premier event entertainers with their DJ / MC division. Rock The House Entertainment Group is far more than entertainers, however. This event is a great example of all the divisions working together on a memorable party.

The lighting division took center stage for this Simcha with uplights, gobo monograms, pin spotting, dance floor lighting, and more all coordinated by our on-site lighting designer. This helped create a club-like setting for this basketball themed event.

Check Out This Video From Benjamin’s Bar Mitzvah

Extra entertainment like tattoos and novelties meant that the attendees had attractions to keep them entertained at all times. Our Photo Booth division provided the event with our Green Screen Photo Magic for not only an activity but also a custom favor for all guests.

These divisions and our videography division are what make Rock The House unique in our region and in the country as one of the most sought after companies for memorable events.
