Concert Report: DJ Icey (Amphitheatre)

Amphitheatre in Tampa's Ybor City night club district, home to 100% EDM.
Saturday night resident DJ DOCO spinning House/Dance when I arrived.
With the world famous DJ Icey (USA) coming on at 12:45am!
Playing a little Old School early but otherwise almost 100% Breaks!
The club was packed, so much so that their revolving dance floor was disappointingly not revolving.
He played part of my favorite Mannequins song ever, Agnelli & Nelson's "Everyday"!
The crowd was all ages with everyone moving to the beats coming off their incredible sound system!
A couple months ago when I ran into Icey in Orlando I told him the set he played at Firestone Live this past December was his best set ever.  He responded with a "Thanks, but how many sets of mine have you seen?"  Good point.  But last night was his best set ever!
You can never go wrong with Go Go girls!
As we approached 2:30am, no one was leaving!
There has been some discussion about whether Breakbeats remain relevant in this new EDM revolution.  If there was ever any doubt, Icey blew them away last night with one Breakbeat song after another that had the partiers on the dance floor going crazy over!
People were dancing both on and off the dance floor!
And  a good time was had by all!
