8ight 7even 6ix makes its mark in New Kingston
It was an emotional night for the 8ight 7even 6ix team as they celebrated the genesis of a new party, while painfully saying goodbye to a colleague who died a few months ago.
The energy was high at the event that was held at St Lucia Car Park in New Kingston recently, and the vibe was kept going with music from DJ Romeo, DJ Mac, ZJ Chrome, and Hyperactive Sound System.
Fabian Lawless, one of the promoters, said his group, Team JA and Wealth Entertainment, was pleased with the night's showing.
"I guess one would say officially this is the first staging of the event. It was an emotional one for us as well because we lost a member of our team (Francois Mitchell) late last year. We know he is resting peacefully," he said.
He added: "Team JA and Wealth Entertainment use this opportunity to say a big thank you to the ambassadors, patrons and sponsors for what was ultimately a fun-filled night."
Despite some light drizzle earlier in the night, the promoter was pleased with how the event turned out.
"We got a little drizzle in the earlier part of the day. We consider it a shower of blessing. As you might know, the first attempt at staging the event was totally rained out," Fabian Lawless said.
Here are the highlights.
