Rhode Island DJ Birthday Parties

One of the aspects of being a Rhode Island DJ is Birthday Parties! Rhode Island DJ Birthday Parties are so much fun. We get to plan great music and get a first hand view of family and friends celebrating a fun event together. Part of the fun is co-creating the playlist with the person whose Birthday we are celebrating. They choose their favorite songs that represent their past and present memories and great times. It is an interesting way for a Rhode Island DJ to know the guest of honor through the music they love.

Rhode Island DJ Birthday Parties that are even more fun are milestone birthdays like 21, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 75 and 80 year celebrations.

Fun Party Games for Rhode Island DJ Birthday Parties

Animal Charades

Type: FB

Players: Any number.

Rules:
In this version of Charades, players act out the names of animals or birds. This should be done by a combination of word miming and silent actions. Extroverts will relish the opportunity to bound around like a kangaroo; while quieter guests may prefer the three-toed sloth… although this can lead to an extremely long game.

For a trick version of this, place slips of paper into a hat, which all bear the same animal’s name. Amid the utmost secrecy, each player picks out a slip, then one person is sent from the room to prepare the mime. When he returns, the other players – all of whom know what the animal is – deliberately avoid guessing the mime. It can be mildly amusing to watch a poor guest desperately trying to convey ‘donkey’, even to the point of eating a carrot, while all around are guessing goat, horse, cow, hippopotamus etc.

My Name Is…

Type: F

Players: 3 – 10.

Rules:
One player leaves the room, and the rest think of a famous person. When the player returns, he is allowed to ask each of the others two questions, in an effort to establish the identity. The questions can be answered only by ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

When the interrogation is complete, the player must do an impression of whoever he thinks it is. Poor questioning can lead to hapless individuals doing an impersonation of Boadicea, when they’re supposed to be Fanny Craddock. But then again, it’s an easy mistake to make.

Paranoia

Type: F

Players: Any number.

Rules:
While one person is out of the room, the other players decide on a common factor that will dictate all their answers when he returns. By asking endless questions, the player has to work out what that factor is. They may choose to be cannibals, to end every sentence in a preposition, or to treat the questioner as if he has an unpleasant social disease. Or, of course, they may drive the questioner to the brink of insanity by all pretending to be hard of hearing, in which case the game can go on and on indefinitely.

Proposals

Type: FCDE

Players: 6 – 12.

Equipment: Pencils and paper.

Rules:
Should you feel that your party is getting too cosy, a quick game of Proposals might help to stir things up a bit. Ideally, there should be an equal number of men and women playing this game, although watching two heterosexual men declaring their undying love for each other can be amusing. Then again, it is probably no more than they do after seven pints on a lads’ night out.

Everyone writes their name on a piece of paper, and puts the slip in a pile (one for men, the other for women). The names are then paired off, and one of each pair has to get down on bended knee, and propose marriage to the other. This can be invigorating, if you find yourself proposing to someone you’ve always lusted after… and downright dangerous, if your partner is watching your every move.

Proverbial Panto

Type: A

Players: Any number.

Equipment: Pencils and paper.

Rules:
Players are divided into two teams, each person writing down a proverb on a piece of paper. The teams then exchange the slips, and players take turns to act out the proverbs they have been given. If their team-mates guess the proverb correctly, that team gains a point. If the proverb isn’t solved, it’s passed across for the other team to guess.

Speech Patterns

Type: F

Players: 3 or more.

Rules:
This game is best played by groups of three, who must conduct impromptu conversations in which the first letter of the first word of a sentence must be the same as the last letter of the last word of the previous speaker’s sentence. Thus, player one might begin: ‘What shall we do today, Max?’ And player two might reply: ‘Xylophones! We’ll get out the xylophones, and play some jazz.’ This puts player three in something of a predicament, until he exclaims: ‘Zounds! What a great idea.’ And the game continues in strict rotation and alphabetical sequence, with each player trying to drop the next one into the mire.

Anyone who falls to think of an answer within 10 seconds, or whose answer is adjudged to bear no relation whatsoever to the conversation, is eliminated. When the first group is reduced to one, the next trio can have a go.

Strictly for Posers

Type: A

Players: Any number.

Equipment: Pieces of paper, a hat or bowl.

Rules:
Write down a selection of adjectives – such as tragic, gob-smacked or amorous – on separate slips of paper, and put them into a hat or some other container. Each player draws a slip from the container, and has to strike a pose that captures the selected word. The others then have to guess the adjective.

What’s My Line?

Type: AB

Players: Any number.

Rules:
For the party version of this old TV favourite, prepare a list of occupations prior to playing. Make them as diverse as possible – brain surgeon, page three model, rat catcher, pizza chef.

The first player is secretly given an occupation from the list, and has to mime it to the others. Whoever guesses the nature of the job has the next turn. This can be also be played as a team game.

 Rhode Island DJ Birthday Party Favorite Games

Of course, as a Rhode Island DJ Birthday Party DJ, I love playing two games from kids with adults that are even better when folks are loosened up a bit or drunk.

Musical Chairs: This kids game is so much fun when adults play, they are fierce! Trust me, it sounds silly but it is hysterical!

Music Freeze: With a good DJ, adults are so much more fun at this than kids. Especially, if the DJ really gets some songs with very fast tempos above 135 beats per minute and folks are dancing their butts off. One of the songs that is too funny to watch is the “Hamster Dance Song” at over 160 Beats Per Minute!

Rhode Island DJ Music Chart – Week of 5/13

This week’s DJ Music Chart will be the Adult Contemporary DJ Music Chart the week of 5/13/2013. Good to see Lumineers “Ho Hey” on top of the DJ Music Chart.  I am surprised to see Taylor Swift “I Knew You Were Trouble” and Fun. “Some Nights” still near the top. I guess they still get requested often and played. I won’t lie, it is still strange for me to see Rod Stewart “She Makes Me Happy” on the charts. He has reinvented himself so any times, hard to know what Rod Stewart music actually is at this point.

Here is a description of Adult Contemporary Radio Music from Wikipedia for those who are to familiar with the DJ Music Chart format.

The Adult Contemporary DJ music chart (formerly known as Easy Listening (1961–1962; 1965–1979)Middle-Road Singles (1962–1964)Pop-Standard Singles (1964–1965)Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks (1979–1982) and Adult Contemporary Singles (1983–present)) is a weekly chart published in Billboard magazine that lists the most popular songs on adult contemporary and “lite-pop” radio stations in the United States. The dj music chart is compiled based on airplay data submitted to Billboard by stations that are members of the Adult Contemporary radio panel. The chart debuted in Billboard magazine on July 17, 1961.

The Billboard Easy Listening DJ music chart, as it was first known, was born of a desire by some radio stations in the late 1950s and early 1960s to continue playing current hit songs but distinguish themselves from being branded as “rock and roll” stations. Billboard had written articles about this trend during the time, and the magazine’s editors decided to publish a separate chart for these songs beginning in 1961. The magazine offered an “Easy Listening” programming guide beginning January 9, 1961, which continued until the numbered chart appeared in July. The first #1 song on the Billboard Easy Listening chart was “The Boll Weevil Song” by Brook Benton. From 1961 to 1965, this chart was compiled from the Billboard Hot 100 chart by removing songs that were deemed rock and roll by the magazine and re-ranking the remaining songs. For example, if the non-rock and roll records in the Hot 100 Top 10 were at #5, #6, and #9, then #5 would be #1 that week on the Easy Listening chart, #6 would be #2, and #9 would be #3. Beginning in 1965, the Easy Listening chart would begin to be compiled by a method similar to the one used for other Billboard singles charts: reported playlists from radio stations airing the format as well as sales data submitted by record stores. By the early 1990s, automatic song detection and barcode sales information had begun to be the norm for most of the Billboard charts, and currently the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks DJ music chart is compiled in much the same way as those for other radio formats.

The DJ Music chart was known as the Easy Listening chart until 1962, when it was renamed Middle-Road Singles. In 1964, the name changed again, this time to Pop-Standard Singles. After alternating the name of this chart twice more in less than a year, Easy Listening was again chosen as the chart name in 1965 when the change in compilation occurred. In April 1979, the Easy Listening chart officially became known as Adult Contemporary, and those two words have remained consistent in the name of the chart ever since.

In 1996, Billboard created a new DJ music chart called Adult Top 40, which reflects programming on radio stations that exists somewhere between “adult contemporary” music and “pop” music. Although they are sometimes mistaken for each other, the Adult Contemporary chart and the Adult Top 40 chart are separate charts, and songs reaching one chart might not reach the other. In addition, the term “hot AC” refers to another sub-genre of radio programming that is distinct from the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks DJ music chart as it exists today, despite the apparent similarity in name.
