WHY HIGHER GROUND MITZVAHS
ARE THE BEST MITZVAHS.
PERIOD.

Some mitzvah DJs are great at mixing, while others excel in their speaking skills & engaging 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.

IN PORTLAND, OREGON

SERVING THE PORTLAND METRO AREA & BEYOND

We have been to a lot of bar and bat mitzvahs over the years, and heard a lot of mitzvah DJs up and down the West Coast. 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 b'nai mitzvah DJ clients. 

 

Having DJed mitzvahs in the Portland area for years, we have existing relationships with many local vendors and are proud to continually earn our spot on preferred vendor lists at event venues such as Castaway, The Waverley Country Club, and The Sentinel Hotel - amongst others.
