Retro party 'Stir It Up', hosted last weekend at The New Mas Camp, lived up to all expectations as it relates to its entertainment value.

The Star arrived at the venue after 11 p.m., during the juggling of retro DJ, Master Lee. He was definitely in his element, getting patrons to sing to classic songs from Michael Jackson's catalogue.

It was interesting how he managed to get the patrons in a frenzy, based on how he introduced his selections. For example, before playing pop single Stick It Before You Lick It, he said "people the other day a girl tell mi this and mi haffi get mad pon har". When the patrons heard the selection, many erupted in laughter.

As the DJ went for Madonna's Like A Virgin and Gillette's Short Man, the sea of female patrons were jumping and prancing, with hands thrown above their heads. Other songs that had patrons in a frenzy included Beat It, as well as Cha Cha Slide by DJ Casper.

Highly experienced DJ Kurt Riley came next, minutes after midnight. He kept the vibe going by pulling for dancehall and reggae singles. Riley, who has become a staple at retro events, received strong responses for Greetings by Half Pint and Wanga Gut by Tiger.

Following that segment, he went for selections, which encouraged companionship among partners.

The Stone's Ginger Wine ladies were out in their numbers, and for this staging, they dressed the part, wearing bell-foot pants and afro wigs. The event concluded minutes after 2 a.m.
