Glossary of Energy Terms

Cocktail Hour Entertainment
These are pre-function activities and games geared toward the young adults. Our cocktail ideas are always changing to keep the adults on their toes! Our event coordinators will go over our current offerings during the confirmation meeting before your event. 

The dancers are like mini-emcees without the microphone. They lead in dances and simplify the fun so all your guests are comfortable participating. Dancers work to keep control over the kids and keep their energy channeled to the dance floor. Energy recommends one dancer for every 40-50 guests (adults too!). A growing request is to have the dancers perform choreographed dance pieces at designated times throughout the affair. If this is something you would be interested in, please notify one of our event coordinators so they can properly staff your event with a balance of technical choreography expertise along with interactive capabilities.

Disc Jockey
The person responsible for all the music and lighting during your event. Along with the emcee, the DJ reads the energy level of the group and determines the musical selection. The DJ takes requests at the party as well, assuring that all your guests are satisfied with the music selection!

Your Master of Ceremonies and much more. He/she coordinates with the photographer, caterer, videographer and most especially, YOU. The emcee is responsible for igniting all of the fun and getting guests to party. Whether you want a traditional, subdued affair or a high-energy extravaganza, the emcee will modify his/her approach based on your desires.

Standard Facade: We currently offer 6 standard facades that are automatically included in each of our Mitzvah packages. Choose your favorite to make the “look” of your setup different from party to party. The facade will be clearly visible in many of your pictures and video, plus it polishes off the whole setting so you will not see the wires and equipment used ‘behind the scenes’. Our Standard Facades are custom-built by our in-house production staff; you will not see any of these upgrades outside of an Energy party!

Upgraded Facades: We currently offer an extensive array of upgraded facades. Our upgraded facades combine various forms of video, visual and lighting technology to create movement and provide an extremely unique focal point to the dance floor. Like our standard facades, our Upgraded Facades are custom built by our in-house production staff; you will not see any of these upgrades outside of an Energy party!

Giveaways are the “chachkees” that are used on the dance floor to bring life to the music. Whether it’s glow-necklaces, shutter-glasses or tambourines, your guests will not only hear the music, but feel it as well.

Lighting Truss
Our custom-built omnidirectional lighting trusses provide movement to the dance floor as well as set the mood for the party. Providing subtle lighting for slow dances and high-intensity effects for pop songs, the lighting truss is an integral support to our performance.

A sentimental memento of the affair, the video montage takes up to 100 still pictures or a combination of still photos and video-clips from your vast collection of family moments, and combines it to yield a presentation for all your guests. You choose the songs and we compile the photos and videos to create a journey through time. When we produce a montage, we also present it at the party on our projector & screen at no additional cost.

Music Videos
As one of the most requested enhancements to our performance, music videos provide visual support to the music we play. With a video attached to each file of audio that we play, the graphics are precisely matched up to the lyrics. Music videos are included with select upgrades or we can plug into video displays at certain venues.

Projector & Screen
We pride ourselves on the quality and features of our presentation equipment. We use the largest screens and brightest, high definition projectors to assure that all guests will be able to clearly view and enjoy your photo/video montage.

Standard Black Dance Risers: Our two-tiered black platform comes standard with each of our Mitzvah packages. Energy performers and, most importantly, your guests will find themselves as part of the entertainment experience as they dance on top of each level. Risers are generally set in front of the DJ setup and can accommodate up to 15 people.

Upgraded Risers: We currently have an array of custom-built dance risers which incorporate LED lighting technology which provide visual effects and movement to the focal area of the dance floor. Serving the same purpose as the Standard Risers, the LED-lit risers can be custom programmed to match the colors of your theme and decor.
