Over the years, Absolute Entertainment's Luau party series has always proven to be a 'Wow!' event, so it came as no surprise that Easter Sunday's Luau - The Rebirth - in St Ann was a smash.

Held at a new venue, the Roaring River Great House, just outside Dunn's River, the event offered a stellar line-up of disc jocks that included Black Chiney, Chromatic, DJ Karyzma, Coppershot, ZJ Bambino and Sound Fuze.

The venue provided a new atmosphere, complementing the music offerings and enticing the party lovers to dance the night away.

The mix of non-stop music included a wide array of genres from dancehall to soca to hip hop and R'n'B.

Although Luau was one of over a dozen entertainment events held in the Ocho Rios area on the holiday weekend, Luau got its fair share of support, with what seemed to be Absolute's loyal followers ensuring the event was a success.
