It’s time for another summer night full of music, friends, dancing and tasty cocktails as La Junta presents PIÑA at La Cita Bar in DTLA!! We’re super excited to bring back the tropical, Latin Caribbean sounds of the Inland Empire’s QUITAPENAS!
As always, the evening features our La Junta Sound System deejays–yours truly Glenn Red, Yukicito & degruvme–providing plenty of Afro-Latin and global dance rhythms to keep you bouncing and swinging around the dance floor, while our host Miz Honey P makes sure you’re smiling for the camera.
It’s also the perfect place to come party after the show at Grand Performances. Round up your dancin’ crew and join us this Friday July 9th…we can’t wait to see to see you!

Hola, familia! La Junta crew here, writing this to you with so much excitement!! We’ve all been waiting with unwavering hope, and now our City of Angels is ever so close to a full reopening after fifteen months of the COVID lockdown…so we have an announcement:
IT’S TIME TO MOVE!! This has a double meaning for us. 1) We can’t wait to see you and get down on the dance floor with you all, and 2) PIÑA has a new home at La Cita Bar!!
You read that right. PIÑA moves to DTLA’s most renowned and beloved neighborhood bar, La Cita, on Friday, June 18th! The evening features La Junta Sound System (deejays degruvme, Yukicito & Glenn Red) playing Cumbia, Salsa, Reggaeton, Samba, and other Afro-Latin rhythms, plus a live performance by the always fun and frenetic LA rockeros, Spaghetti Cumbia!
Gather your dance floor fam, make a plan and we’ll see you on the 18th!

I’m honored to have had a part in promoting the newly released song and video, Georgia On My Mind. This collaboration among East LA Latinx son jarocho band, Las Cafeteras, singer/violinist QVLN, and Tucson’s Sergio Mendoza (Orkesta Mendoza), flips the classic and beloved Ray Charles rendition into a cumbia-fied, beat-heavy, hi-hat laden affair aimed at turning out Black and Latino voters for Georgia’s critical runoff elections in early January.
A special shout out goes to my brother, deejay/producer degruvme, of La Junta LA for his excellent production work given the short timeline to develop and complete the project, as well as to everyone involved in the project.
Be sure to check out the full video on the Las Cafeteras YouTube channel and share it far and wide. Follow @newgeorgiaproject to stay informed.
