Valla Dia was a very powerful Heavy Metal/Classic Rock band that played the Pacific Northwest back in the 70's.  Booked through FarWest Entertainment in the early years they played most of the "A" clubs and many of your favorite watering holes in your home town.

Most of the band members are still involved in projects throughout the region.  When Valla Dia left the stage for the final time it was just the beginning for some of us.  Zane, Lito and Brad went on to form the bands "Theory" and eventually "Titanic". Those bands toured throughout the country for many years more.
