Concert Report: DJ Ferry Corsten (Firestone Live)

Saturday night at Firestone Live!
DJ Evo (Suite B Lounge, Bikkuri Lounge) was on the boards when I arrived!
Evo had opened for Aly & Fila (ET) in this very spot last November!
Last night he was mixing some House with mostly Trance.  At midnight DJ Bash DropR3con (Suite B Lounge) joined him for a half hour.
But everyone was here for Ferry!
Packed in all directions!
You could feel the energy in the room!
Finally at 12:30am.....DJ Ferry Corsten (NL) came on!
Always smiling, always happy plying his craft!
The music a mix of the Trance he is famous for plus more than a fair share of Vocal Electrohouse hits!
Huge crowd on hand for the currently ranked #43 DJ in the world per finicky DJMag readers.
In reality, few do it better and he's top 10 in my book!
Spotted at the front: Sarah and Melody
Havin' a great time!
His set ran close to 2 hours!
Ferry last played Orlando in November at EDC, taking turns with Marcus Schultz (USA) doing business as New World Punx!
Blowing the place up near the end with his 2006 mega-hit and Mannequins classic "Fire"!
I was so so hoping he'd play that other Mannequins staple, 
"Rock your body Rock" but it just didn't happen.
But it was an incredible night nonetheless.....
.....and I'd be remiss if I didn't say that a good time was had by all!
