Huge thanks to all who were part of last Thursday’s AFRO FUNKÉ 2018 Springtime Celebration, performers and eventgoers alike! What a beautiful night!! Special thanks to the homie Eric Parsons aka DJ Elixir who came down from Ojai to deejay the upstairs Townhouse lounge in Venice CA, not just because he put down a solid set behind the turntables and mixer, but he’s also a top notch photographer who shot the great pix in the gallery below. Check out a few of the random photos he took downstairs and outside while he wasn’t droppin’ the jams upstairs. Unfortunately, he had to miss most of Nickodemus’ set since they were slotted to play the same hours, but Nico managed to slip into one pic during the end-of-night sidewalk talk 🙂 Enjoy, and stay tuned for the announcement of the next Afro Funké getdown!
Here’s one of my latest flier designs, announcing the first LA JUNTA summer event:
LA JUNTA is back for our fourth summer of good music, good people and good times!! While the boys have been gigging steadily as guests at other events, we’ve missed coming together at good ol’ Fronteras Cantina in Alhambra and partying on the patio like we do!
For our summer kickoff, we’ve invited back the first band we ever worked with at La Junta, way back when we were a fledgling event in east Pasadena. The fellas from LA CHAMBA return with their East Los Angeles working class take on the pyschedelic cumbia chicha sounds that originated in Peru. As with all La Junta events, it will be a heavy dancing affair!
The date is SUNDAY JUNE 26th…start breaking in your summer dancing shoes!!

It’s always in the sidebar widget on this site, but since I’ll be celebrating my birthday at the end of this month, here’s the official Glenn Red DJ Sched for July. Stevie Wonder fans will recognize that the background is from his 1980 album Hotter Than July. Hope I get to see/meet you at one of these events if you’re in the LA area.

Here’s my latest flier design for the next LA JUNTA event on Sunday 6/22. The Summer Kickoff event was pretty outrageous and now that we’re smack dab in the middle of futbol’s World Cup, we’re expecting the energy to keep flying high! Hope you’ll join us if you’re in the LA area 🙂
