Club Report: Eclipse Nightclub (Jacksonville)

Over in Jacksonville on this Saturday night at Eclipse Nightclub.  (Is it just me, or does anyone else see a hidden Mickey in their logo?)
Made the drive up to check out none other than DJ Kimball Collins (T) because you can never have too much Kimball Collins!
The club was packed and I'd say 9 out of 10 were there to see Kimball!
Crowd was a mix of youngsters and those of us from the AAHZ Decade.
His set was completely different from what he played at Sound Bar in Orlando last month.
More Progressive than the opening DJ's who had played earlier last night.
He played a couple tracks that I would have sworn were Old Skool Dance from back in the day but he later told me they were new songs with that old AAHZ vibe!
Spotted in VIP: DJ's The Revrend & Dave Berg
Dance floor stayed jammed!
The club itself is moderate sized and definitely bigger than Sound Bar back in Orlando.
Kimball says he'll be doing another show in Orlando before heading back to Bangkok in July.
Spotted: A couple Mannequins girls who live in JAX.
Kimball finishing up a little after 1am and DJ George Acosta (USA) getting ready to come on.
His set quickly migrated from Deep House into more current House/Dance hits.
Dance floor stayed pretty full!
I like this club.  Good sound system although the lighting effects were a bit limited.
Had previously seen George Acosta play at Electric Sun Fest here in Jacksonville a couple years ago and then again at Firestone Live in Orlando after that.
Great music from all the DJ's last night.  DJ Icey (USA) plays here with Dave Berg on June 21st!
A good time was had by all!

So, I live in Jax, and had I known King Bob was coming, I would have been there too. Glad you had a good time in my little city.

Jacksonville, here, too. I managed to not hear about this at all.

If there are other Mannquins folks in Jax, I want to know who they are! :)
