No doubt that by now this boat party is legendary. Being the biggest
outdoor club event in Chicago and offering such spectacular views
of the city "REJS"("rays") is one-of-a-kind. The
2008 "REJS 6" sold out party was again a great success.
Every year, the party attracts more and more true house music lovers
who know how to party and have a good time. Musically, we try to keep
a fine balance between proper underground electronic dance music and
that sweet summertime flavor of infused melodies in our sets. No cheesy
commercial music is allowed. Both ANDRE SOLARIS and NOSMO delivered
a top notch set of uplifting and liberating House. The crowd roared
and cheered. The sound, as always, was immaculate with additional
low end reinforcement this year. A total of 12,000+ watts of raw power
on an open deck of a boat. Now that's amazing!
This year, Chicago's signature fireworks show was viewed by all from
a close proximity. The captain not only pulled up as close as possible
to Navy Pier for the viewing but also gave us an awesome tour of harbors
and basins along the downtown skyline. At points we were close enough
that our music and cheering crowd onboard got some onlookers dancing
on shore. The after hours at MODA Nightclub offered continued partying
for our guests until 5am. DJs VOYTEK and RIKLER manned the decks there
playing great sets to a somewhat coherent crowd. We're looking forward
to 2009. Good times are on the way.
