Zip Jock Dymond is making final preparations for tomorrow's staging of his monthly event, Full Chaarge Saturdays, to be hosted at Club View, Ocho Rios, St Ann.
The party encapsulates the ZJ's approach to entertainment and he believes the energy at this staging will be on full charge.
"The concept of Full Chaarge comes from my entertainment company, which bears the same name. There is also Full Chaarge Wednesdays on ZIP FM, so it is basically an idea of something great which is of entertainment value, and that is what we are running with," Dymond said.
Full Chaarge Saturdays has developed a loyal fan base since its launch in October 2011 and the promoter/ZJ says the support has been growing because of the entertainment value it offers. "The event has been going well so far and it's growing. We have a loyal audience and each month we can look for at least 1,000 patrons. What we offer is good vibes, good entertainment, good environment, good DJs and basically, give the people what they want," ZJ Dymond said.
"When artistes are not featured, $500 is standard for all patrons and ladies are admitted free until 11 p.m.," Dymond said. On live performance nights, men pay $1,000. Tomorrow's Full Chaarge Saturdays features reggae artistes G Whizz and Deep Jahi.
Parking for Full Chaarge Saturdays is reserved at the Island Village plaza. The venue is also protected by security personnel. "Patrons can expect crazy party vibes from the DJs and the entertainers who will pass through. Like any other Full Chaarge, it's going to be fun. If you have never been to the event, it is a good one to be a part of. It's going to be great; just expect the unexpected," ZJ Dymond said.
