On September 3, 2004 Danny Brownie, through his Main Street Music company, promoted his first Jesus Party.
This was the first in a series of parties, held at the Swallowfield Chapel where The Gleaner reported that approximately 2,000 persons were in attendance.
The response pointed out to Brownie that there was a growing need among the youth, especially, for a wholesome alternative on the entertainment scene. The kind where fun does not include drugs, alcohol, sex and disparaging music.
Many young Christians seeking entertainment have fallen prey to the secular entertainment scene, and have slipped through the cracks.
Jesus Party provides a forum where the young and the young at heart can let their hair down, and fellowship in a wholesome, positive environment.
Jesus Party's main presentation is recorded gospel/Christian music played by some of Jamaica's top Christian disc jockeys.
Every genre of Christian music is played but there is definitely a lean towards Caribbean music.
Eight parties before year end
After a four-year hiatus, Jesus Party is back for 2012 with plans to do at least eight parties before the year ends. The next party will be held tomorrow at Swallowfield Chapel, 5 Swallowfield Road, Kingston 5, starting at 6 p.m. and, as usual, it is entry free.
Jesus Party is proud to welcome LIME on board as its main sponsor, along with Tropical Fantasy Juices, Tropical Spring Water, Squeez'r Juices, all products from Wynlee Distributors, and media partners Love 101 FM and Mega Jamz 98 FM.
