Review; Dixie Roadhouse

Dixie Roadhouse is only good if you like strictly 100% country music only. For those who might have gone to Dixie Roadhouse in 2012 and/or earlier and remember them playing fast social music with a few to several slow songs here and there, sorry, but they totally do not play that stuff anymore. Dixie Roadhouse had quit playing that kind of music most likely sometime around early 2013 or so and has transitioned to 100% country music by October 2013. As I understand it, Cape Coral nightclubs recently began remaining open until 4 in the morning instead of 2 in the morning, but even that has totally not changed Dixie's new music format by a single milimeter. If country line dancing all night is your favorite thing, then by all means come to Dixie Roadhouse. If you are looking for something other than 100% line dancing, Dixie Roadhouse is not for you! In fact, if you're looking for something other than line dancing, your nightclubbing belongs on the other side of the Caloosahatchee River as the South Cape has nothing but country line dancing.

If slow dancing is what you seek, there are two options for you, both located in Fort Myers. One is Club Blu, located on Carrell Road and Evans Avenue in Fort Myers. Every Friday evening, they play R&B, soul, and old school music. And R&B, or Rhythm and Blues, has lots of slow songs; practically a buffet of them! Contrary to what some might believe, R&B is NOT the type of music that has profanity in it; that's rap. In fact, a couple really cool oldies I remember recently hearing at Club Blu, "Let's Start Love Over" by Miles Jaye and "Shake You Down" by Gregory Abbott, are R&B songs. "On Bended Knee" by Boyz II Men is an R&B song. Also, you DO NOT have to be African/African American to go to Club Blu!

Another choice is Rusty's Raw Bar & Grill on Tamiami Trail about a half mile north of Alico Road. On Saturdays from 6 pm to 9 pm, a DJ plays some really nice oldies, even once a bit recently including a cool one played at my high school prom, "Save the Best for Last" by Vanessa Williams.

As a reminder of course, and this is very serious, when a slow song is played, the ladies MUST ask the guys to slow dance with them if they want to dance! It's mandatory not just in Southwest Florida, but at ALL nightclubs within the United States of America. In China, India, Germany, etc, it may be the guys' job to ask the ladies, but in the USA, the ladies gotta ask the guys! Guys who ask the ladies, even politely and in a friendly manner, and even if it's for the first time ever, are normally the first to get kicked out of an American nightclub! In the USA, that friendly "Would you like to dance with me?" if it comes out of a guy's mouth is normally followed a couple minutes later by a stern "Okay, you're gonna have to leave!" coming out of a bouncer's mouth.

Cops and city of Cape Coral now working to get Dixie Roadhouse shut down on nuisance abatement law. Will be glad to see the pos place and loser people go away.

Nightclubs are supposed to play a VARIETY of music! Not just one single genre of music night after night, week after week, and month after month! An ideal format for especially major nightclubs such as Dixie Roadhouse would be one third country music, one third mainstream music (Top 40s, 70s, 80s, Disco, etc), and one third slow dancing music.

100% country is spreading like a roaring California wildfire fanned by the full blast of Santa Ana winds at their full power, devouring and completely making extinct all nightclub mainstream music and slow dancing. The Ranch Concert Hall and Saloon has just completely phased out the Top 40s that used to play there after 11 pm and is now an official carbon copy of Dixie Roadhouse. And clearly, a lot of people are apparently enjoying their 10-15 foot in diameter invisible personal bubble on the dance floor!(No wonder there are heavy boycotts against American women! And I'm starting to agree with those boycotts!) There even appears to be a rogue, country crazed DJ behind all of this, whose mission is in fact the entire USA being all solid 100% country in it's nightlife from Atlantic coast to Pacific coast, and from the Canadian border to the Mexican border, and with a nightlife nickname of "United States of Line Dancing."

I wouldn't even be surprised if this DJ's mission is to even criminalize all interactions between men and women at American nightclubs and make it a Federal felony punishable by life imprisonment and/or the death penalty for men and women to be within less than even 10 feet of each other. Heck, I likely shouldn't be surprised if this DJ's mission is for men and women to go to separate clubs, and any man who enters a woman's club or woman who enters a men's club is either arrested and sentenced to imprisonment, or even taken down with lethal force right in the parking lot by military police/SWAT teams patrolling the club premises.

And just how in the blazes is all this talk "nonsense"?

Southwest Florida nightclubs used to play such great music a long time ago! In fact, Southwest Florida used to be THE place to come to if anyone wanted to re live their high school homecoming dance or even their high school prom. The Ricochet played two slow songs in a row every half hour, Dixie Roadhouse at first played slow songs every 20-35 minutes, sometimes one song, sometimes two songs in a row, even Groove Street Grille & Discotheque on College Parkway used to play a few slow songs before.

But now as it appears, slow dancing has all but gone extinct, especially as country line dancing continues to spread like a raging California wildfire fanned by howling Santa Ana winds. Reportedly, even The Ranch apparently played a few slow songs here and there before even they switched to all country. Practically nowadays, the only kinds of clubs where you'll find anywhere near slow dancing is R&B clubs.
Stop the gangsta rap

More disappointing news; apparently a new, much worse genre of music is spreading all over Southwest Florida even quicker than country music. The genre; gangsta rap! Yes, you read correctly! The Dreaded Gangsta Rap! The music I can publicly and proudly say I hate! Rap is that type of music that has all the profanity in it and that glorifies violence, drugs, gangs, and chaos. Rap has infected at least 8 bars, including Club Blu; yes, Club Blu has apparently fazed out R&B and Old School and has switched to Gangsta Rap. Other clubs that have apparently switched to that horrible, filthy, and useless gangster garbage are DASH Nightclub in Downtown Fort Myers, Club 1527 in Downtown Fort Myers, Sandy Parrot on US 41 just south of Alico Road, Tequilla's Cantina at Gulf Coast Town Center, Bar Louie at Gulf Coast Town Center, the Blu bar at Gulf Coast Town Center, and The Keys Bar & Grille at Gulf Coast Town Center.

Gangsta rap is so ugly and nasty, even Gospel music is more appropriate at nightclubs than rap!

That horrible, filthy, trashy gangsta rap listened to by violent thugs like the Zombicon shooter, gang bangers, serial killers, drug smugglers, yes, even terrorists! It's spreading like far worse than a wild fire fanned by a freaking tornado! All but two or 3 bars and clubs east of the river are playing nothing but that useless garbage! Rap is ruining the entire nightlife atmosphere in Southwest Florida like how a monstrous swarm of locusts ruins a corn field. In fact, rap at bars and nightclubs is exactly like a swarm of locusts in a corn field!

To the OP; Freestyle dancing, including slow dancing, is ILLEGAL in the City of Cape Coral! Cape Coral municipal law clearly states that there shall be no less than five (5) feet of air space between dancers on any dance floor or in any designated dance area within the City of Cape Coral. Violations constitute lewd conduct which is in fact a capital felony in the United States of America that is heavily and thoroughly investigated by the FBI, the United States Department of Homeland Security, the United States Marshals, and carries a mandatory sentence of up to four hundred (400) years to life in Federal prison and/or the death penalty for all involved. That is why you only see line dancing at Dixie Roadhouse. Under municipal law, line dancing is the only type of dancing that is legal in Cape Coral.

New law just in; it is a CAPITAL FELONY under Federal law in the United States of America for any single man to be within less than ten (10) feet of any woman under any circumstances. Heavily and thoroughly investigated by the FBI, the United States Department of Homeland Security, the United States Marshals, and with a mandatory sentence of three hundred (300) years to life in Federal prison and/or the death penalty for all involved.
