Club Reports: Atlantic Dance & Latin Quarter

After spending her summer working at Stitch's Club 626 Dance Party at Magic Kingdom, DJ Talie (Motion, Celebrate Tonight) returned to Atlantic Dance Hall last night for the first time in months spinning mostly Top 40 and Hip Hop. The crowd size exceeded my expectations for a Thursday night but overall it was not crowded given the massive size of the venue. A handful of her Motion regulars were on hand. Talie reports that they no longer are employed as Equity DJ's. ADH is located at Disney's Boardwalk Resort. Guys, unless you're in a rock band, please, no skinny jeans!

I then walked into Latin Quarter at Universal CityWalk expecting some Salsa or Bachata but arrived smack dab in the middle of a set of House/Classic Dance! And it wasn't just a few songs, after six or seven in a row I had to go over to DJ Leony (Sirius/XM BPM, RadioDanz, Senso) and tell him "Just because the name of the club is Latin Quarter, who says this can't be a Techno club!" The crowd was actually cheering each time a new House song came on. This continued for awhile longer before he switched back over to more-expected Reggaeton. Incredible!

"Talie reports that they no longer are employed as Equity DJ's"
Can you elaborate on that?

So, are they no longer part of the Equity contract?

Yes, that's what I understood. None of the Disney DJ's are anymore.
