LA JUNTA, my deejay crew and music event of the same name, have announced the dates for our Summer 2017 run. We’ve been working hard to curate an amazing lineup of deejays, live bands and dance groups for our fifth summer season–and our second in DTLA. Yup…we’ll be back rockin’ the super fresh rooftop lounge at Don Chente Bar-Grill & Lounge, across from Staples Center. Above is our teaser flier showing the dates of our series, each show taking place on the LAST Sunday of each month from April through September. For this summer campaign, the La Junta team and I decided on a vintage futbol/soccer aesthetic. Soon you’ll see the flier announcing the lineup for our April 30th Kickoff Event. Can’t wait to show you, and of course, to see you at La Junta!!

Our final LA JUNTA summer event of 2016 falls on SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 25TH!! And we’re going out BIG with Los Angeles’ new but already beloved Selena tribute band, SELENAMOS! It takes place on the rooftop of our new home, DON CHENTE BAR-GRILL & LOUNGE in DTLA, right across from Staples Center. We’ll be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Selena’s first gold record, which was also the first for any woman in Tejano music!

LA JUNTA returns on SUNDAY JUNE 26th with our fourth summer series! We’ll be back at FRONTERAS MEXICAN GRILL & CANTINA, but for only four events instead of the eight that we’ve done each of our last two summers there. Instead, we’re working on producing events on a bigger and better scale! It’s 2016 and the time is now to keep reaching upward and soaring! Here’s the splash flier I created that we debuted on our social media channels today to let everyone know that we’re back soon and we’re looking forward to a fun and colorful summer!
I’m extremely proud of my La Junta brethren ‘degruvme’ for putting in the work into making one of his dreams come true! He’s produced his first collection of tunes with some of his favorite Angeleno vocalists and we’re ready to throw the ep release and concert in DTLA on FRIDAY JANUARY 22nd!! All five singers will be on hand performing their respective songs live, with a special dance performance and excellent deejay support from VNC & F-Cast aka “The Funky Brewsterz”, as well as Yukicito and yours truly of the La Junta Sound System. The fliers I created are below:
Sorry that I’ve been light on the posts for the past few weeks; been busy designing some promo materials for upcoming events this summer. Here are the front and back sides for two separate flyers for the LA JUNTA party. Mark your calendars and dance with us on SUNDAY JUNE 8th at Fronteras Cantina in the city of Alhambra, just a few miles east of Downtown L.A. Live Colombian music by Oakland’s LA MISA NEGRA, deejays (including yours truly), Mexican food, drinks and lots friendly folks. Some links to check:
Hope to see you there!
We’re checkin’ in to say hello in the middle of us all digging our soles into the earth and steadying ourselves for everything 2014 has begun to bring. Reyes, Glenn and Daniel want to once again thank you and all of our Capricorn friends who celebrated birthdays for making our special opening event at Trópico de Nopal in January so amazing. WHAT A NIGHT!
The first Wednesday of February is fast approaching, so it’s also time to invite you to gather with us back at Eastside Luv Wine Bar for the next ECLÉCTICA! Some special guests from Fresno will be making the trip down the Grapevine to share the magic of their ‘DULCE UP-FRONT’ events. We’re looking forward to a night of new sounds and a return to having live painting in the room. We’d love to see you all again!
Ecléctica takes place on the first Wednesday of every month at Eastside Luv. This space is not only the coolest spot in Boyle Heights but it makes the best cheladitos and has one of the fattest sound systems around.

This is the flyer that I created for the first Ecléctica event of 2014. It’s going to be a special night as we move, for one night only, to beloved Echo Park venue TROPICO DE NOPAL. On this night, we’ll celebrate our many Capricorn friends, including my fellow resident deejay REYES RODRIGUEZ.
Helping us to kick the year off correctly will be headliners THE SWEENEY BROTHERS BAND performing live and eastside favorite DJ FRESKO. Our friends from FORRÓ IN L.A. will also lead a Brazilian forró dance class in the 8pm hour for those who’d like to start the new year trying something new and cool.
ECLÉCTICA will return to its usual First Wednesdays slot at Eastside Luv in February.
