Harvelle's Weekend : Plan Accordingly

< -Click to enlarge.

This show will feature the amazing talent of guitar wizard Henry Carvajal and Jerry Angel on the drums. Benjamin Bateman Band opens the night.

Latin tinged blues and r&b! Always a good time and a great night to let loose and dance. Get on the floor! You'll be glad you did!

It's a funky burlesque cabaret and the master of ceremonies - Toledo Diamond - is one of the most charismatic figures in L.A.'s underground.The Toledo Show has been turning people on for nearly a decade.

JT Ross says:
"Harvelle's is the OLDEST live music venue on the west side and is among the most intimate of clubs one will find in Los Angeles. It's dark & sexy and the perfect room for dressing up, sipping your favorite top shelf cocktail and dancing the night away. So bring your friends, husbands, wifes, lovers, neighbors and anyone who simply wants to have an incredible time."

Leo Nocentelli : The Meters Experience


That's the battle cry of the funky.
Specifically the funky of New Orleans.
Guitarist Leo Nocentelli - founding father of funk - leads the charge!
Leo Nocentelli is one of the founding members of the New Orleans funk band, The Meters. The much sampled classic funk jams such as "Cissy Strut""Look-Ka Py Py" and "Hey Pocky Way" feature Nocentelli's guitar playing.
