Seventh Day, Seventh Sign and Seventh Cruise… for the past 7 years, James Saunders has presented the White Party Cruise around Manhattan.
On Saturday, August 1, 2009 at 11:59pm EST over 300 Moonlight Cruisers dressed in their best summer white outfits, took a 4-hour bon voyage on the “Spirit of New York” creating great memories and dancing the night away until sunrise.
Event Producer Laurence P. returned after a year hiatus. The evening was hosted by Comedienne Tammy Peay with her special guest DJ Baker of The Doo-Dirty Radio Show. After Moonlight Cruisers dined at the buffet, they were entertained with live performs by R&B and the first female artist signed to Def Jam Alyson Williams, recording artist the SEXY Dy’Ari and we Party with B – Baron. The music was pumping and heard on all 3-decks by the amazing DJ Calvin Smith, DJ Styles, DJ Andre Collins & DJ TeaseNYC while the WPMC exotic dancers took the stage. A big shout out to the Best Dressed Winners.
