LA Weekly - “Orlando was the backbone of L.A. nightlife,” says Jason Lavitt, promoter and DJ at Club Tigerheat at Avalon and countless more legendary L.A. nightspots. “When we first launched club Tigerheat in 2001 Orlando pulled out all the stops for our opening night. Like most clubs at the time, Tigerheat was reaching the LGBT 18-25 crowd and Madonna was re-releasing her first three CD’s with remastered sound for the 2000s. We organized a look alike contest, a lip sync and a non-stop Madonna mega mix for the diehard fans. Being backed by Orlando put the odds for your party to be a huge success. The hardest part about this loss is what a sweet guy he was.
