saturday september 22 | melody yacht club

I’m eagerly looking forward to being back at Eric Tucker’s ‘Melody LA’ restaurant in Silverlake on Saturday September 22nd, this time with another longtime deejay homie–BABY BUBBA–from Chinatown’s ‘Soul Sessions’ fame and, more recently, from his eclectic mixtape series currently in its fourth volume, Clean Living. While we’ve shared the decks a handful of times in soul, funk, hip-hop or world music contexts, turning yacht rock records will be a first for us and I’m pretty he’s as stoked as I am. Expect all the favorites–Kenny Loggins, Steely Dan, Hall & Oates, Boz Scaggs, Christopher Cross, Ambrosia, Player and the like==mixed in with some deeper and possibly just as cool, smooth and soulful cuts from lesser known artists of the day. Come dine and sip as we sail on wax all evening long. Here’s to easy breezy smooth sailing…hope you can join us.

friday may 11 | PIÑA 1st anniversary

Hey Friends!

We’re excited to announce that our little golden pineapple turns the ripe old age of 1 this FRIDAY MAY 11th and you’re invited to the celebration!! In the nightclub biz, we count time just like dog years, so celebrating our first birthday is kind of a big deal!

Just for the occasion, our friends from LA-based The Expedition Radio Show (broadcast internationally on both Dash Radio and Frission Radio UK), bringing their swag and their forward thinking soul sounds to our main dance floor and to the Coco Lounge! Join as we welcome:

Derrick Ah Sam (emcee duties)
Plann V
Baby Bubba
Mr. Garfield Adams

They’ve been great supporters of La Junta events and we’re big fans of their show and the madness they bring whenever they’re in the building. So tell some friends and come through El Dorado DTLA and get a photo with the tropical fruit of honor 😉
