DJ Qualifi, local DJ in Tacoma is the DJ and promoter of the event, commented: “I think it’s going to be a very diverse crowd, people who like reggae to dance music. I’m optimistic it will be a good event.” When asked the best thing about the event, DJ Qualifi replied, “It’s going to be upscale, having Gallucci’s catering company providing appetizers and they do a very good job. I’ve deejayed for them in the past. I did Adrielle’s [Adrielle is the marketing manager for Gallucci’s Catering] wedding for her as well.”
DJ Qualifi explained how the party came about: “Adrielle wanted to put a on a big event to include the catering company and knew New Year’s was approaching. One of the themes we thought of ‘Black and White’ and everyone wants to look sexy in black and white and we wanted to keep it simple.”
DJ Qualifi discussed how this party is unique, “I think it’s going to be very different from other events because of the diverse music. Everyone knows me as an international DJ and it’s going to be a very diverse crowd and diverse music. There is going to be another DJ on board called ‘Digital Dragon’ and he’s going to be doing techno music and the top 40 dance music. So, Digital Dragon will have a mixed crowd, which I think is perfect.”
When asked who DJ Qualifi recommended to the party, DJ Qualifi replied, “Everybody looking to do something different, they probably went to the same club or DJ venue and now they want diversity of the evening which is going to make our party quality. The reason why also is I’m known for the boat cruise party every year that has been a success for the past 8 years, again because of the diversity of the crowd; it’s Caribbean style. I think having that history is important.”
“I want to hype it up; if you’re looking for something different or looking for a diverse crowd or music, this is where it’s at. It’s an international black and white party that’s going to bring a different set of people together,” DJ Qualifi concluded.
