A few weeks ago, I added another project under my wings. I was asked to co-host a party. At first, I was a bit hesitant with the idea, since, if anyone has ever hosted a party, it’s not the easiest nor the least time consuming endeavor. I remember when I was a kid, I loved having people over my house for family gathering or parties. It was fun to be surrounded by love and laughter. As much as it was tedious to clean up and fix up the place after, I couldn’t help but smile thinking of all the good times I had just had in good company. So when the proposition fell onto my lap, I was excited about it but I needed to figure out how to time manage. I remember when I first met Jon, we kept talking about projects we would get into, and one of them was to throw a party where people would come and have nothing but a good time. A party where people would be excited about the music, the DJs, the dance floor, the company and the bar. ‘It’s A Feeling’ (I.A.F.) party was created. So here I am, adding party promoter to the list of things I do. I have figured out a system in terms of time management, and my goal is to get people bumping and grinding to the tunes of amazing ‘sound selectors’, as Loreto would say.
May 9th, we celebrated Nova’s birthday at the I.A.F. party. We had DJ Eclektic and Taz on the wheels of steel. The place was packed with dancers and non-dancers. Drinks were bought, sweat was dropped but most importantly, love was in the air, as it should always be. I took the opportunity to ask a few of my friends to explore their inner ‘funky-nasty-ness’, and I myself captured a few people whom I believe spoke through their clothes. Enjoy!
