Black Tie, MC Fresh, Jack Hartzman – turns DAY into NIGHT for Alex G.
A simply perfect Saturday afternoon, May 21, 2011 for Alex’s Bar Mitzvah.
Blue skies and 75 degrees does not make for one to want to spend an afternoon inside the Bolger Center Ballroom, unless of course you have Black Tie and MC FRESH entertaining and it feels like a Saturday night inside!
Black Tie, one of Washington Talents Agency’s premiere Mitzvah hybrid entertainment acts featuring MCs Chris, Adrian and Jami and backed by live guitar, keyboards and drums, set the stage and tone for a terrific afternoon affair for Alex. MC FRESH added another level of excitement making a surprise guest appearance, joining BT for the event. Band leader Strick Bonner, his green Carvin guitar and matching green “Chucks” sneakers put on an excellent performance; non-stop for 4 hours. The party also included Wax Hands, Lighting & Plasma Screens by Washington Talent, a fabulous photo montage made by Alex’s dad Steve and desserts from Starbucks featuring Tiramisu, Rocky Road, Carrot Cake and Chocolate/Peanut Butter mini pops and cupcakes.
Photographer Jack Hartzman recalls photographing the incredible wedding Alex’s parents had 16 years ago; grandparents, aunts and uncles alike were on the dance floor celebrating yet another family Simcha.
