Negril has fast become Jamaica’s party capital, and one of the organizations that has contributed to that reputation is Sandcastle, promoters of the increasingly popular Ka’ula Nights.

On July 8, the four members of Sandcastle (Kishan Stanley, Robert Porter,Kirk Douglas and Claude D’Aguilar) present the third edition of Ka’ulaNight at the Seawind Resort, located in the heart of the seaside town.

The event is based on traditional festivities in the Hawaiian islands. Ithas grown so big that promoters have had to move it from the comparativelysmaller Risky Business which accommodated 1,000 patrons.Stanley estimates the Seawind can host as many as 2,500 fans for thisyear’s show which is dubbed ‘Bikini Night’. He says Ka’ula Night attractsa diverse audience.“We go for the college crowd, that’s our main demographic. But we get goodfeedback from older folks because they love the energy,” Stanleyexplained.

The Sandcastle team stages almost all of their events in Negril which has become a hotspot for parties especially as it approaches Jamaica’s independence celebrations inearly August. The ATI weekend, which takes place around that time,comprises numerous events, but Stanley says Ka’ula Night strives to bedifferent.“We’re not just about a sound system and liquor, we try and have a themefor each event,” he said. “Ka’ula Night is all about the ultimate partyexperience.”

On party night, there will be several incentives including giveaways ofcoconut cups and grass skirts. Then there is the music which will beprovided by Copper-shot Disco, DJ Rusty from Montego Bay, his counterpartDJ Nicco and homeboys DJ Gemini and Macky.

Ka’ula Night is one of three events promoted by Sandcastle. The others areDirty Crush which takes place on May 22 when Labour Day is observed, andthe New Year’s Eve celebration, Ultra Violet.All three are sponsored by Appleton.
