Let Us Dance: Afterhours and Nighttime Culture
24 Minutes Podcast

Guest: John Wayne, Partner and Resident DJ – Jack’s House Dallas
In cities across America, permits, regulations and ordinances make it difficult for aboveboard planners of after-hours events to be treated differently than unscrupulous promoters.
However, one Dallas event producer named, yes, John Wayne, wants to do it the right way.
We’ll have an eye-opening conversation with John about:
- after-hours parties, and why they are essential to a segment of our society;
- how there is not a clear regulatory path for those wanting to present nighttime events; and
- an idea that might just help.
The challenges John Wayne faces in Dallas are not unique to the Lone Star State. Most cities across North America do not know what to do with 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., alcohol-free afterparties.
How will cities begin to permit these events in order for above-board promoters to operate with transparency?
