Jazz phenomenon Liela Avila back at Plate 38 in Pasadena Fridays through August.
This young and talented Avila and her equally talented ( while not as young) dad John Avila ( of Oingo Boingo fame) will be playing originals and jazz favorites with a few other talented musicians sitting in.
Entrepeneur, friend and talented music manager in his own right, Dr. Dave Peterson – we call him Dr. Dave the Rave – a “cheesy” sort of bloke from Wisconsin – insisted I visit Plate 38 last year not only to meet the owner of hottest new music venue in East Pasadena but also hear Liela Avila, whom I have seen at other venues in Los Angeles. Liela will be playing this Friday at Plate 38 through August according to a well-connected source. Liela is an absolute “ must hear ” – we kid you not!. Music starts around 8pm according to longtime fan Mr. Joe Polk. Polk has followed Avila’s career for sometime now and says she’s also a regular at the Montage in Los Angeles on Saturdays.
