WHY HIGHER GROUND MITZVAHS
ARE THE BEST MITZVAHS.
PERIOD.

Some mitzvah DJs are great at mixing, while others excel in interacting with teens. Some are masters of lighting design, music selection, and presentation while others prefer to focus on personalization, production, or event planning.

 

At Higher Ground, our focus is to excel at all of the above so that we can provide the gold standard in bar & bat mitzvah DJ entertainment. 

We are a passionate and hardworking team of DJs, Event Hosts and dancers all working together towards one common goal: to create incredible entertainment experience & employment opportunities. It's why we got started in this business, and it's what keeps us aiming Higher.

SERVING THE PORTLAND METRO AREA & BEYOND

We have been to a lot of bar and bat mitzvahs over the years, and have heard a lot of mitzvah DJs around the country. Naturally, we have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. All of this informs our style today, and helps us reach for something higher, delivering a unique experience to our bar & bat mitzvah DJ clients. 

 

Having DJed mitzvahs in the Portland area for years, we have existing relationships with many local vendors and are proud to have earned our place on the preferred vendors list of some amazing mitzvah venues such as the Sentinel Hotel, Exchange Ballroom, Castaway, amongst others.

"Ben and Mason are absolutely the Dream Team!! They made my dreams for my daughter's bat mitzvah celebration come true!! Beyond their professionalism, obvious expertise with their craft and kindness throughout the planning process, they played the best music, listened to the host (me) and the guest of honor (my 13 year old) to make sure they fulfilled our wishes for the entire event. They know how to get feet on the dance floor, kids playing games, and to read the room to maximize the fun!! Book them now! You will NOT regret."

"Higher Ground Entertainment, went above and beyond to throw a perfect party! Ben was amazing from first phone call to last. He helped me with advice, their app was so helpful to plug music in at our convenience. Ben was happy to give me referrals for photo booth company’s and helping us put together a last minute video! Your presence was everything the day of the event . Calm , fun and engaging. The Kids , teens and adults all loved the music, games, dancers and a super fun DJ! Can’t wait to give your info out when I hear of a party."

"My 13 year old son is very opinionated and prefers rap 100% of the time. Planning his Bar Mitzvah, he unequivocally stated he did not want dancing. Ben and his team were amazing guiding us through the whole process. Joel listened to my son, heard his interests and preferences, and knocked the party out of the park. The kids had a blast with the games they played. Our compromise of dancing just at the end of the night was a success with all ages. To top it off, my son never left the dance floor!"
