101.9 AMP Radio Electric Bounce House feat. Steve Aoki

Watching a performer smash cake into an enthusiastic fan’s face sounds like something that would happen at a Blue Man Group show, not an EDM concert.

But when the EDM performer in question is Steve Aoki, all bets are off.

On June 30, 101.9 AMP Radio‘s Electric Bounce House packed the House of Blues Orlando with local and visiting EDM fans for an extended lineup of DJs performing, finishing the evening with headliner Aoki and the popular singer Bebe Rexha.

Out and About: WALK THE MOON Plays to Sold-Out Crowd at House of Blues Orlando on Oct 14

The lights went down at the House of Blues and Walk the Moon takes the stage. As the adoration of the packed crowd calms down slightly, the band launches into a rendition of “Circle of Life” by Elton John. Fitting since they are on Disney property.

The crowd appears slightly bewildered but rises to occasion to sing along by the time the band gets to the chorus.

Out and About: House of Blues Orlando Hosts Local Brews Local Grooves

Yesterday (June 13), House of Blues Orlando hosted an event called Local Brews Local Grooves that featured sampling of beers made in Florida along with live entertainment.

The event started at 4pm. It cost $5 to get in and then $3 a piece for a 3oz pour of beer. You could get a wristband for $15 that gave you 5 pours and a souvenier plastic cup. No real savings for buying 5 at a time, which I found odd, but I figured I’d buy the wristband to limit myself to 5 samples. We also got a booklet offering beer descriptions and a layout map of the breweries.

Out and About: Extreme Celebrates Pornograffitti 25th Anniversary in Concert at House of Blues Orlando

In 1990 Extreme‘s Pornograffitti album came out, and I was blown away by how good it was from start to finish. It was rock with a touch of funk and a lot of attitude, with some beautiful ballads thrown in.

Flash forward 25 years, and I’m waiting inside the House of Blues Orlando, waiting to hear Extreme perform the entire Pornograffitti album live. Yes, I’d heard most of the songs live in various concerts over the years, but this would be the first time I would hear the album played all the way through.
