The Bar of Modern Art was packed this past Wednesday night as fans lined up to dance and party to DJ Benny Benassi’s new beats. Fans danced all night upstairs and downstairs in the venue, which once stood as a church. Electronic DJ equipment took the place of organ pipes and fans the place of church goers. Rather than “halleluiahs,” fans enthusiastically chanted “Benny”!

The crowd was also kept involved by video images of themselves dancing projected behind Benassi. This feature intensified the energy in the room to its full potential max. Later on came huge colorful images of different people eating fruits and other foods to the beat of his songs.

At one random point in the night, two guys came out on stage; one holding a poster with “Mexico” written on it and the number zero; the second guy came out with a poster with US and the number 2 written on it. Everyone clapped, cheered and went mad when they saw it.

This was because earlier that day the United States defeated Mexico in a soccer meet at the Columbus Crew stadium becoming World Cup qualifiers.

Benassi is a native Italian DJ specializing in electronic club music. He won a Grammy Award in 2008 with his fellow producer and cousin, Alle Benassi for his remix of public Enemy’s “Bring the noise”.

Benassi is currently on tour with his new CD Toolroom Knights and his special guests for the night were Shapeshifter and Nick Reed.
