Lethal Rhythms originally laid down the beats for Alex Pedowitz’ Bat Mitzvah at the Georgia Aquarium in March of 2012.  We were very excited when the same family came back and asked us to do Round 2 for Zach Pedowitz at The High Museum in Atlanta.  Lethal Rhythms was hired for the DJ entertainment, videography, lighting and overall event direction.  The family’s vision originally incorporated video games, but after meeting with the client and understanding his passion for the Halo brand, we wanted to take it to the next level by immersing the entire environment in the Halo experience.

Designing a Halo-themed event that would be uniform throughout the night was paramount to the success of the evening.  We wanted to incorporate a futuristic theme with a fun element, but we also wanted something classy and professional.  We set right away to locating the perfect vendors that were both excited and capable to help execute our vision.  Enter Darryl Baker from War Games and Steve Bales from Bold American who both played major roles in creating an interactive experience for the Mitzvah guests.  War Games Atlanta is an exciting new company that provides laser tag games for events.  Darryl created an amazing live gaming experience.  They decked out one of the museum spaces as a battlefield and Lethal Rhythms DJ Binnie Davis created set the high dose atmosphere with war sounds effects from the second floor outlook.  The results from his design and set up speak for themselves.  Steve Bales and the Bold team created an excellent food and decor ambience using a variety of unique floral vessels, textured linens, and even a fun C02-infused dessert display to match the futuristic feel.

Lethal Rhythms utilized the other event space and showcased an industrial modern entertainment booth with flat screen TVs playing loops of Halo video game clips displayed on metallic stands.  During the Mitzvah reception, DJ Joel Rabe mixed Top 40, hip hop, and classic dance tunes.  The award-winning Lethal Dance Crew performed breakdancing moves and interacted with the crowd to get everyone involved on the dance floor.

We had a blast participating in this event and hope you enjoy the collection of photos below, courtesy of Chris Yellina with Graceology Photography.  For additional photos, check out the photographer’s blog here.
