04 May 2010 – Stereo Live, Houston TX
We made our way to Houston TX. This was our first time here in Houston, so we were very excited to see how much EDM was progressing. I arrived early as usual and the line was around the corner, everyone was dressed white and looking very festive! Stereo Live is an awesome venue, two levels and huge sound system with all the confetti canons one could ask for. Erick arrived to find himself with room filled with Colombian’s, he was rocking the decks with some fresh new edits, that not even I knew the name’s of. I have to admit, those long hours in the studio are sure paying off, there was so much energy and so much love, all emanating from the music. The crowd was even singing “Live Your Life”. What an amazing night here Houston and we can’t wait to be back!
05 May 2012 – Marquee, Las Vegas
We jumped on a plane and our next stop Las Vegas, if you all don’t know we have a monthly residency at Marquee. The Vegas strip was buzzing all afternoon. You had Floyd Mayweather fighting Miguel Cotto and Mr Erick Morillo performing at Marquee, so you knew this evening was going to be nuts! I arrived a bit early to hear my boy Jason Lima open up the night, he did a fantastic job and passed the reigns over to Erick Morillo, Erick leaned over to me and whispered, “ I’m playing sexy tonight “, he sure did; he had the ladies shaking their tale feathers all night. So many people stopped by to say hello, our boy from Miami Dave Grutman “ owner of LIV Miami, Salah “owner of Texas de Brazil”, Richard Grey, my homeboy Josh Wander and NFL star Sean Merriman. This was one night I don’t think Marquee will ever forget. See you all soon for EDC Las Vegas!
06 May 2012 – Tao Beach, Las Vegas
I made my way over to the Venetian Hotel. This was Erick Morillo’s first time playing at Tao Beach, I can’t begin to tell you how hot it was, but not to worry, Erick Morillo was going to make it even hotter. Erick arrived with his lovely fiancé and Tao beach let out a big roar! People were opening signs reading, “We fucking love you Erick Morillo”. Erick was just feeding off the crowd and playing some amazing classics. What an amazing display Tao beach put on, everyone was going nuts, spraying themselves with champagne. I’d like to give a special thanks to all the ladies in your tiny bikinis. To all that showed up and endured the heat. We LOVE you and we hope to see you all in Ibiza!
