I am a DJ with an emphasis on Karaoke and Event Services. If you are looking for someone who isn't happy until you are, here I am. Our sound system is excellent and easily fills a large hall or outdoor venue with the sound of music.
If it's karaoke you are looking for with thousands of titles and streaming even more from the internet I can almost always find a song. Is it your wedding day? Sweet 16 Birthday? Graduation? My goal is always to make you the star. I am a professional willing to go the extra mile for you and your group.
My music is sourced from the hundreds of cd's I have collected over the years as well as pulled from several online subscription services.
Ellen was our KJ for a 50th Birthday party. The party was a huge hit and everyone participated in Karaoke. Ellen was awesome, played great music while we ate and then taking requests and getting everyone motivated to get up and sing. Ellen had all the karaoke songs one could ever want. She did the full set up, multiple TV screens and even lights. Overall, we had hours and hours of continuous Karakoe singing to close out the night and everyone agreed that this was such a fun 50th party. We would hire her again!!

Thank you for the opportunity to Kdj your holiday party. I am glad everyone had a good time.
I highly recommend Ellie for your karaoke event. She was in contact with me prior to our event to get all the details and came to our home to get the layout of the space. She arrived 2 hours prior and was setup and ready to go before our guests arrived. She is very organized and great to work with. We had great participation and fun was had by all.
Thanks for being an amazing DJ and adding so much to my special night. It was great working with you prior to the event and all the way through it. I hope to see you again soon! Keep singing!
We had a wonderful evening with Ellie from KaraokePDX. She was the KJ for our elementary school fundraiser and silent auction. She communicated well on the front end, went out of her way to visit the venue the day before, and was punctual day of!
During the event everyone had a wonderful time. Guests were engaged and eager to participate. She was fun, organized and entertaining. We would definitely recommend Ellie, and use her at events in the future if opportunities arise.

Ellie of Karaoke PDX was amazing. We booked an event for Intel's 50th anniversary and she more than delivered. She was courteous, professional and provided everything that we asked for an d more.
We will defiantly be using again.
Ellie KJ'd a very large private holiday party for us and everyone had a blast. Being a holiday party people were letting loose and she managed a room full of energetic partygoers wonderfully. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a KJ who really loves to be there and makes sure everyone has fun. Great singer too!

Influences & Inspiration
Primary mentors for me include J9 a KJ from Canada who took me under her wing and taught me how to listen to a singer with an ear to adjusting the sound to highlight their voice.
I was also influenced by a now good friend Lady ZiZi showed me how to stay calm, manage a rotation and the importance of knowing how to harmonize.
Finally, I am influenced by the feedback I receive from those loyal fans that have been supporting me for the last 10+ years.
Access to Power. I can usually run everything I have from a heavy duty powercord.
