Concert Report: DJ Felix Da Housecat (Barbarella)

Friday night in Orlando means just one thing: Discothèque at Barbarella.
Opening mostly House set from resident DJ Flashdrive (USA) and Nick Whitney (USA).
And the dance floor which had just a few grooving on it during the opening hour…..
Soon had a few more…..
And by 11PM it began to look like this!
DJ Flashdrive delivered some 70’s Disco vibes in his set too!
Discothèque has become the best weekly event in Orlando by far!
Got to visit with DJ Gregory B (USA) and Emily at the bar!
And then around 12:15AM, there he was!
The legendary DJ Felix Da Housecat (USA).
And the dance floor got packed!
Felix Da Housecat is considered part of Chicago’s “second wave” of House music producers following the creation of the genre in that city post-70’s Disco and post-early 80’s Funk.
His set last night kept the floor jammed!
Felix Da Housecat is from my native Park Forest, IL. I went to Rich Central High School and he went to Rich East.
His set last night included 70’s Disco, 80’s New Wave & 90’s AAHZ House!
It was an amazing set!
Don’t recall him playing Orlando previously so this was my first time seeing him!
Discothèque at Barbarella is typically a free event every Friday but every once in awhile they will have a ticketed event featuring a world-class DJ. Over the past half-year they’ve had Todd Terry (USA), DJ Three (USA) & Louie Vega (USA) all playing here!
And now the amazing Felix Da Housecat!
It was a wonderful show and a good time was had by all.
