According to this year’s AAAThanksgiving Travel Forecast” (, 43.4 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home during the days that constitute the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

DJ Danny Avila, although not an American, will also be making such a trip -- and in doing so surpassing that 50 mile data point by about 3,500 miles -- by appearing at LOVE in Carle Place on Thanksgiving.

Born and based in Madrid, Spain, Avila has quickly become a celebrity in the dance music community -- with “quickly” referring to the fact that he’s only 18 years of age (born in 1995). However, while not old enough to get into most nightclubs, he has already performed at arenas, festivals and other dance-minded spots around the globe -- with demand for his skills rising to the point that SiriusXM satellite radio made Danny (as of 2012) one of its Electric Area dance channel resident DJs, where he delivers weekly sessions of such EDM genres as trance, electro and progressive house (on his “Ready To Jump” program) every Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Next month, Avila will be spinning in Las Vegas, South Africa, Rome, Hong Kong, Singapore, the UK and Los Angeles -- but on Thanksgiving night he’ll be on LI at LOVE, the recently-opened hot spot in Carle Place (in the space that was formerly home to Sugar Dining Den and Social Club). Doors open at 10 p.m., with tickets available in advance at ($15 for ladies, $20; could be more at the door).
