For the past five years, Full Service Party has hosted non-stop parties at Bonnaroo’s Snake & Jake’s Christmas Club Barn. They return to DC alongside the LEGENDARY Vjuan Allure & MikeQ - pioneers in the ballroom/vogue-house culture - for a night full of beats, bass and fun. Also featuring Full Service Party residents Uptown Nikko, Wreck Tech, Jack Inslee & Ayes Cold.

Vjuan Allure
Vjuan Allure
One of ballroom's biggest talents is a Vjuan Allure. It's not Vaughn or Vonn, - (though it IS pronounced that way) it's VJUAN. A true International enigma that has caught the Dance Music-World by storm, Vjuan is not just a DJ but a producer, re-mixer, artist, dancer, speaker, club host, promoter & a radio station personality – you name it, Vjuan Allure does it with ease and a winning smile that proves that he was definitely born to entertain. He's the beatmaker behind the twist on Masters At Work's "The Ha Dance", also known as the Allure Ha by voguers, Vjuan is a force to be reckoned with. Non-stop energy and passion is what drives him to incredible performances whether it's for an intimate crowd or a huge dance arena with guest numbering in the thousands – he is comfortable, confident, and approachable. Catch his long anticipated return to Lit City Rave this Friday with Kevin JZ Prodigy around the mix.
