Dance Music Makes Gains at CityWalk
It was a weird night at CityWalk last night. The top deck of the parking garage was jammed with people wanting to watch the 10:30pm fireworks show over at Universal Studios. Bob Marley's had an unusually long line while Red Coconut had an unusually short line. Pat O'Brien's had no line. Over at The Groove DJ AJ spun mostly 80's (and not just Michael Jackson) during the first hour before switching over to his more normal Top 40 mix. DJ Leony at Latin Quarter said he was in a crazy mood and played a lot more techno then he normally does. Back at The Groove most of the last half hour was Dance. The hip hop crowd didn't know what to do! It was awesome!
Had the opportunity to chat with management about 80's Night at The Groove and how popular it's become. They agreed. I suggested allowing a little bit of late 70's Disco in the mix and they said they're actually considering that plus a little bit of early 90's too. If they start this and word gets out, look for even more crowded Thursday nights!
