I would love to hear the LACS at TTR!
Country boys Paradise!
Are you thinking of a certain band in particular?
Hi Sheld0n, yes actually.....mine!!
I suspected as much.....so let's make it happen
Hey Sheldon, you guys going for Halloween again, Deb and I have Oct 26 - Nov 4th...
If The Heidi Incident is playing, and/ or, you bring some more of that awsum red wine of yours, with the cool labels again....then ya, we will go.
You know the wine is going, got great feedback from you all, we appreciated that.
We are going in March, we'll see how the music scene is then too.
Back to the music....
We will beat ya....we go back for Week 8
Old TTR music vs New....
My opinion only....
I like music you can dance to, rather than dance music....
I don't mind year or type!
Old TTR, two times, there was a lot of dance music usually, but not always....
New TTR, much less dance music. Yes repetitive....
But I don't mind repetitive music I am able to dance too, like YMCA at midnight, at least I know the time for once in the day! Lol....
Danced and partied at New ttr much more than the old, on the stage too!
We found if you either flirt or tip, the DJ will play whatever song you want. We heard DMX nightly...At least that was Jen’s experience.
Oh, the music. A subjective topic dear to a few and not to many. I love to music and to dance, Most women do at TTR, as well as some men. Why can’t they mix it up? Keep the ladies shaking. Pit bull, Hip Hop, Latin, throw in some Reggae for a little sexy swagger with a partner? As the night rolls on, drop in a couple of hair bands, like Whitesnake, or GnR....of course, AC/DC. But please hold Journey...forever. Thanks.
We have loved the fun vibe at TTR for the past 5 years and have kept coming back every year (usually twice) mostly because we've met so many amazing people! We've made life-long friends here! But the music has become a HUGE problem for us. Music can set the mood and it can just as easily destroy it. There was a larger variety of music 5 years ago that catered to a wider range of tastes. Now it seems to be 90% techno/EDM day and night, and that's not playing to the crowd who is by far (when we've been there at least) in the 40+ age range. Where's the sense in that?? Personally we love classic rock but we have no problem hearing more current tunes whether it's rock, country, reggae, pop, hip-hop, rap, as well as EDM. Bring it on as long as it's varied! Unfortunately, unless we hear of positive changes in this area, we may not be back. And that's just sad.
Haha, if you flirt enough the DJ may even let you take over the booth...at least that was Jewel's experience.

#goals. Nice job!
Hell Yeah Im down with some LACS a little Colt Ford , SOme FGL lets make it happen....
We did that last year at the Riu Palace and before I knew what was going on it turned into a big party with people leaving their balconies and coming down to the beach. I ended up being given a nick name (DJ Reno).
One of the main issues we had when we went in November was too much randomness. It would be 1 pitbull style song, 2 songs of latin music nobody heard of (I know we are in Mexico, but play mexican music that Americans know), 1 classic rock song, 1 EDM style song. REPEAT. By the time you go up and dance to a song or two, then it was back down because you never heard the next song and couldn't dance to it.
Obviously you can't make everyone happy. When you play a song or two and the dance stage gets busy, then you play another song and the stage clears out - YOUR DOING SOMETHING WRONG. The DJ should be able to read the crowd, but the house DJ only knows how to play his set list.
I had a chat with the GM before we left there last Friday. My take is this - 95% or better of the music is EDM. Day and night, pool or club. It's everywhere. About 20% of the guests are in their 20's, another 30 - 40% is in their 30's, but fully 40 - 50% is at least 40. The music caters to what is normally less than half of the guests. If you go to Bash in the evenings, you will see the older crowd (like us, in our 50's) come in, hang out for awhile, but then eventually just fade away. The only time the music changes is when the band plays (classic rock and they aren't bad). My advice was mix the EDM with some classic rock, from the 70s to the 90s, throw in a slow dance now and then. Here in Las Vegas, most casino's use the 80s happy music soundtrack. Why? It makes people happy, everyone knows the tunes, and they want to stay longer. Now that's for gambling, but you get the idea. Just my 2 cents.
