CD, Compilation, Mixed



Located in Hialeah, Florida, Casanova’s is the name of the legendary discotheque that flourished during the Disco era. Literally everyone who was anyone in the dance music industry performed at Casanova’s from the late 70’s to the early 90’s. Hundreds of acts including Madonna, Vickie Sue Robinson, The Village People, Celi Bee, Sheila E, France Joli, Musiq and Lime, all made an obligatory stop at Casanova’s when they were in South Florida. The turntables were manned originally by DJ Carlos “No Show” Nodal, one of the “original 8” Miami disc jockeys (the others being Artie Jacobs, Bill Kelley, Ashley, Bill Halquist, Bo Crane, Bobby Eckenwiler and Otis James). Carlos Nodal eventually shared the DJ duties with an underage (14 years old at the time) Ciro Llerena. This compilation “A Night at Casanova’s” represents a musical snapshot of a typical Saturday night set as mixed by DJ Ciro Llerena. Volume 1 is heavy on the Freestyle music that ruled the dance floor during the later years of Casanova’s run. Local favorites Erotic Exotic, London Exchange and Secret Society are all represented on this compilation.
