South Florida DJ Association
The Fever at The Open Stage in Coral Gables Call for our next event NO COVER ………
When I started the Happy Hour at Alcazaba at the Hyatt Regency Many years ago I knew this was the place that would support this music that Miami was in love with since we first heard it during our teenage years, Unfortunately Alcazaba closed it’s doors in 2009 and an Era came to an end. The well dressed crowds , the classic sounds replaced by Bachata and Reggeaton and a crowd that opted for a cold beer instead of a Johnny Walker ” Neat”. We were getting older but we still wanted to dance and have a great time. Our choices were limited ,and when we finally found a place more often than not our music would be mixed in between those same styles we tried to avoid .
Bob Quesada ( Mr.Q 305 ) is a veteran of the Miami Nightlife of the 70s here in Miami, resident DJ at such Clubs as Alexandre’s at the Omni and Daphne’s at the Sheraton. After I started the South Florida DJ Association Bob and I would constantly discuss that there was a segment of Miami’s population that was being ignored , that segment was US. We had NO Radio station to hear our music and a very limited amount choices of places to go. With the exception of an occasional Disco Concert by Charlie Rodriguez Live Entertainment our Friday and Saturday Nights were limited to movies and restaurants. We would have to listen to our music in our cars or at home.
Looking for the right place became a mission. This crowd demanded quality and class. By chance we were contacted by the owner of a fairly new establishment in Coral Gables, The Open Stage Club.A unique combination of restaurant and live entertainment venue. Located just a block south of my old Alcazaba the place contained all the elements we were looking for Class, Location and a state of the art sound system that could bring out every violin and cello in Romeo and Juliette.
It is with great pleasure that we present to you ” The Fever” A One Night Affair an evening of Classic Disco Music, Soul Ballads and music that put our city on the Map from groups such as The Antiques, Mantrap , Conjunto Universal and much more. In other words …A night dedicated to You and Me who have called Miami home since the early 60s.
