Old Video About Orlando's Dance Scene
While looking up some info about Orlando's dance scene in the 90's, came across this late 90's cable TV video featuring a much younger DJ Sandy (House of Blues, Club V) and DJ Jeffee (Thee Grotto, Firestone Live). Fascinating look back at some of the early days of the local dance scene. I believe the Sandy scenes were filmed on the rooftop of Orlando club Icon while the Jeffee scenes were filmed at club Simon's in Gainesville. When Orlando passed its anti-Rave statute, a lot of the local action switched to Simon's. It would take the Gainesville city council at least another year to figure out what was going on. If you don't want to watch the entire video, do listen to the intro and the last couple minutes.
