DJ Rascal Coming To Orlando

Every once in awhile The Groove will pull out a surprise and actually bring in out-of-town "name" EDM DJ's. We'll they're doing it again on Saturday, November 3rd with Miami DJ Rascal (SET, Cameo). Should be a night of House and Top 40/Dance with just the standard $7 cover charge!  The Groove is located at CityWalk in the Universal Orlando Resort.  Parking is free after 6pm for Florida residents and after 10pm for everyone else.

Not to take anything away from this guy but honestly, he's just a Miami Dj that's coming up to Orlando to do a gig. There are a lot of local Djs in Orlando that can do the same thing he does, maybe better; not sure..never seen him live.

Not sure the tourists in City Walk will know who this guy is anyway. I'm sure it'll be a good night, being a Saturday and all but..

I agree with you that there are plenty of local DJ's that could do the same thing. But other than the Sunday night of Labor Day weekend, they won't let them. So the only EDM sets we ever get at The Groove are when they bring someone in. Which ain't often enough.

The Groove is primarily for tourists; they don't want real house or electronic; they want the stuff they're familiar with or hear on the radio.

Hats off to them for bringing someone different for a night but I bet most of the people there on that night won't "get it".

Unfortunately, you're right. They won't get it. (Although Rascal will probably play enough Top 40 to satisfy many.) The Blog will be there to provide coverage.

Still, the point should not be lost.

Even if the crowd in there on Sat is mostly tourists and they don't fully appreciate what Rascal can do when he's rocking in Miami, we still need to give a shout out to The Groove for bringing him up here and doing something different every once in a while.

Citywalk has some DJ's that know how to play EDM music but they never do. Are they not allowed to?

it's probably a two part answer

part one being that managers in the clubs might actually say something to them if they're veering too far away from top 40 crap.

part two would be that if they're a professional dj with years of programming experience, they would know not to go crazy with EDM in there because tourists just don't get into that music like you would want them too. They want their Flo Rida, Pitbull, etc.. out the a$$ all night long because that's what they know.

it's just a fact of life. EDM hasn't come *that* far..not yet.
