Club Reports: Retro Room, Atlantic Dance Hall, Firestone Live

Saturday night in the city a starting it off with a visit to Retro Room for their 70's, 80's & 90's retro dance party!  RR is located on US192 in the 4-Corners area.
DJ Boston was in the control tower pumping out the hits.
Only problem was that no one was dancing!
Not that it was empty; lots of people.  Just no dancers.  Retro Room will be celebrating their two year anniversary next month.  This place was home to my packed 8TRAX Reunion last year and we might need to do it again sometime!
Headed next to Atlantic Dance Hall at Disney's Boardwalk Resort.
Nice surprise finding DJ Willy (Rock'n'Roll Beach Club, 8TRAX, Celebrate Tonight, The Groove) at the controls playing Top 40/Dance!
ADH is always hit or miss but last night it was a big hit.  Large crowd dancing!  I'm told a lot of Saturday nights have been crowded lately!
The crowd from club Motion was in the house.  Later this week we'll post an article about an upcoming Pleasure Island / Motion reunion event taking place next month!
Lighting tech Alisa (Mannequins, House of Blues, The Beacham) was also on the controls last night! Atlantic Dance Hall is currently Disney's only dance club!
Moving on to Firestone Live where there's always a party!
Expecting DJ duo Aly & Fila (ET) but finding only Fila!
Aly apparently isn't traveling due to an injury. Not that it mattered.....Fila blew up the place with a nonstop Trance set!
The place was packed!
With the recent explosion in the popularity of Electronic Dance Music, one sometimes wonders whether Trance plays a part of the growth.  Absolutely!  This was a mostly young crowd and just like we saw at EDC last week, the Trance DJ's are hugely popular!
Fila's songs last night had the classic build-ups & crashes associated with Trance.
The DJ duo's internet radio show "Future Sound of Egypt" can be heard on Digitally Imported Radio every Monday at 4:00pm EST (2100 GMT).
Always great lighting and sound at Firestone Live!
Spotted: Trance DJ's Li'l B and Suzy Solar (USA). Suzy will be performing in Orlando at Bikkuri Lounge on November 29th!
Spotted (right to left), DJ J-13 (Suite B Lounge, Bikkuri Lounge), promoter Artem (Russian Standard Dance Party at Rok Room) and friend.
When the show ended at 2:30am, the crowd chanted "One More Song, One More Song".  He then played another song....a 10 minute encore!
Spotted: DJ Evo (Bikkuri Lounge, Suite B Lounge) holding the Egyptian flag!
A good time was had by all!
A good time that got even better when Fila jumped down onto the floor to visit with his crowd!

Hi Shawn. In the listing of this year's holiday activities at WDW, no mention yet of the NYE Party at ADH.
