Great vibes at Bikini Sundayz

HUNDREDS of party fans packed the Ultra Beach Club in St Catherine for Bikini Sundayz: Playboy Edition last Sunday.

The ticket may have stated a 4:00 pm start, but it wasn't until 8:00 pm when patrons started streaming into the venue. Many females were dressed in either bikinis or Playboy-inspired outfits.

"It was a very successful staging. We're looking forward to the next one in June," Maurice Johnson, event organiser, told the Jamaica Observer.

Within the blink of an eye, there was dancing room causing the crowd to spill onto the beach to the rear of the venue. That didn't seem to impact their vibes as the DJs ran through their sets touching on all the popular genres and keeping the energy high throughout the night.

They all injected the right amount of selector humour, without distracting from the music itself as partygoers made no bones about which beverage was their favourite in their Bikini Sundayz-branded buckets.

Johnson has yet to decide upon the theme for June's event.

"What we are trying to arrange is a ZIP invasion, where we get all the ZIP Jocks we can to play at the party. The other option is a colours edition," he explained.
