Who is playing?
Jamin-i has been been behind the scenes and the plates organising the famous Raglan Sunday Sessions. A legend of a dude, nicest person ever, with a crate so deep of high-quality tunes, that he will get you on the dance floor uncontrollably.
His recent set at SPLORE was so good, we couldn't wait to see if Jamin-i had availability for a Boat Party in Rotorua and drop that set here with you! Jamin-I's passion of Bassculture and conscious messages has pushed his cart to all sorts of genres over the years.
With sets from reggae/dub/hip hop and swing through to dubstep/moombahton/trap and drum n bass, you'll always be noticing that vintage and tropical influence.
By day Rio is a singer songwriter in one of NZ's best ever bands (Trinity Roots), by night he has also been spending a lot of time behind the decks and is a black belt in mixing and selecting tunes!
Expect a set filled with funk, hip hop and new school jams. Selecting tunes and filling dance floors for years, another absolute weapon behind the decks DJ Nero.
Long time friend of the team, Willie G learnt his craft mixing vinyl in the early 2000s and moved to CDJ and now on the new Roland midi controller, his tunes are equally as progressive. Willie G a lover of the 127BPM, (House Music) but has been known to drop a range of tunes, DNB, funk, electro, DUUB always deep, smooth and on point!
Live music from High Carb Boil Up 11.
A trio filled with super talented musicians who get together for special events and jam. Expect tunes from musicians like Meters, Earnest Raglan, Bill Withers, Al Green - pretty much old school funk n soul and a few jazz standards (the funkier ones).
We have low capacity for this event, we would encourage you to get the girls together and plan ahead for this event. Unlike anything we have seen in Rotorua for a while, dress up party on a boat with some super talented musicians, a bar a kitchen, food available... it's going to be rad!
