What is a Silent Party? A party experience like nothing you’ve had before. Three DJ’s Red (80’s 90’s 2000’s) , Green (Top 40 and EDM), and Blue (Hip Hop), all spin the best music while you sing and dance along.
As you flip from one channel to the other on your headphones, they change colors from green to red or blue. This turns the event into a silent disco, full of people singing and dancing. Meanwhile, a DJ competition rages to get you to listen to their respective color!
