Club Reports: CityWalk & Atlantic Dance
CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE
The Mardi Gras series of concerts wrapped-up last night at Universal with the famous band Chicago. A lot of concert-goers stayed over for the CityWalk clubs; every club was absolutely packed and the lines were long everywhere for those that didn't arrive early. DJ AJ was spinning a lot of Top 40 mixed with Hip Hop for the wall-to-wall patrons in The Groove. AJ did play a DJ Deadmau5 song so we did get some techno! It appeared to me that the crowds exceeded the night that Akon was the singer at Mardi Gras.
If you want to hear techno though at CityWalk you have to hope that DJ Leony (Sirius/XM BPM) at Latin Quarter is in one of his moods. Besides the normal assortment of Latin hits, he played an extraordinary number of House hits that not only kept the dance floor jammed but people were dancing all over the place!
Meanwhile over at Red Coconut Club DJ Smooth (radiodanz.com) kept an equally jammed dance floor moving with a mix of Top 40 and Hip Hop hits between band sets and after they ended at midnight. Smooth spins tonight (Sunday) at The Groove.
With everyone over at CityWalk you'd think that Disney would be hurting. Well yes, Pleasure Island was dead but Atlantic Dance Hall was full of partiers. DJ Pat, who tells me he has been the Saturday night DJ at ADH for around 13-years, kept the floor jammed here too with Top 40 videos and Hip Hop. ADH has been increasingly popular since PI closed and I'm not so sure Disney knows how to handle it!
