RJS was founded in 1986, with their first trip, taking place in Ibiza in 1987. Since 1987 and based on the Brainchild of two of Black London’s Top Sound System owners, King Ruddy (Java Sound) and Chris Sweeney (Winner Roadshow), RJS Promotions: Ruddy, Jack (a life long friend), Sweeney developed RJS as a hobby that was to continue for the next 20 years plus. The idea was of an annual alternative holiday for Afro-Caribbean people, not to their homelands, but to the ever-developing package holiday style destinations, that perfectly emphasised The RJS Catchphrase of Sun, Fun and Musical Fantasy.
This alternative holiday has taken thousands of hard-core party revellers to an array of Mediterranean beach resorts and the Caribbean Island of Antigua. Along the way, many old and new friendships were made, many marital relationships conceived and not so many enemies encountered. Some of our friends still travel with us and some, only in spirit. (R.I.P). Over the last 20 years, there have been numerous deejays/sound systems joining us in our quest to ensure our clients musical satisfaction, alongside the best of Black British comedic entertainment, making RJS Promotions the consistent promoter
Our Mission is to continue to bring people around the world to new places, but to ensure people live by the ethos of, ” If you don’t come to party, don’t effin’ come” and the RJS Mantra of Sun, Sea and Musical Fantasy
Since 1986 The RJS family have travelled all over Europe and the Caribbean, creating our very own brand of that Special London Raving Environment but in other countries with our own DJs Starting with RJS Ibiza in 1987.We have entertained generations of ravers leaving our mark on the map in each country and will continue to do so!
