My brother, Bill, was surfing the web the other day and passed along a URL for Sun Jam, a Honduran party that has grown from a few friends 10-years ago to maximum capacity of 1,500 over today. The event takes place each year on a 3-acre island called Water Cay, about 6 miles from the town of Utila on Utila Island in Honduras Bay.
A visit to the promoter's web site gives you a rundown of this year's party, which took place on August 5th. Yeah, I'm a little late to the game on this one, but I wanted to let my peeps know about it and follow it for next year. Better late than never! Geez, my bro, the one with 4 kids (one on his way to college) beat me to the game here. You'd think I'd be up on this stuff, but hey, I'm running the music section of a major pop culture web site! Who has the time to party in Honduras? I guess Bill does!
The site features photos from past events (where are this years photos guys?), a Flash audio player streaming top tracks from the event, information on DJs from Central Amercia along with more on the town itself and some of the things you can do while you're partying your ass off. The town of Utila is well known for its dive shops and water sports.
You can only get to Water Cray by ferry from Utila Island, so make sure you plan your trip accordingly. Contact the promoters for more details on next year's event.
So, check it out next year! Maybe we'll see you there.
