JUICE. On The Breakwater Barge 5PM June 23 #yyjmusic @gvicharbour

Greater Victoria Harbour Authority presents The Breakwater Barge.
Join us Friday June 23rd from 5PM to 9:30PM for JUICE. (dj set) for funk filled dance party.

Breakwater Barge - PlayInVictoria.netFrom the ever-burgeoning club scene of BC’s hidden gem, Victoria, comes Ryan “Juice” Walton. Juice has built a small empire being the go-to party starter of the island and his efforts have landed him gigs from Shambhala with Smalltown DJs to sharing the stage with acts like Bun B, Mat the Alien, The Funk Hunters, Skratch Bastid, & A Tribe Called Red.

Juice won’t be pigeonholed into any genres though. You can catch him rocking a pool party, playing funk, soul & disco late night, or at the club bangin’ rap or late night bass to the wee hours. His rep is growing just as fast as the dancefloors in front of him, definitely a Canadian DJ to keep your eyes on moving forward. He’s not the Jack of all trades, he’s the Juice of all trades.

Local beer from Phillips Brewing & Malting Co., Driftwood Brewery & Hoyne Brewing Company. Cider from Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse and wine from the Artisan Wine Shop AWS. Food will also be on site from The Kraken by The Breakwater, Deadbeetz Food Truck, Songhees Seafood & Steam and Thrifty Foods Smile Truck.

The Breakwater Barge opens at 5PM. $2 cash admission with partial proceeds to James Bay New Horizons Society

Kids welcome. No pets or smoking on the barge.
