Cheers, All!

We hope that this twelfth month is treating you well so far and that the holidays keep bringing that quality time with the people close to you. With La Junta’s PIÑA monthly coming up on the second Friday of the month–December14–we’re having our good friends come through to do a one night only takeover of the main room! Please come out and greet a couple of our outstanding deejay homies who respectively hold down two of our favorite Latin/World music nights to attend:

MANO (Nu Tropic, LA/OAK/CHI)
FUNKY CARAMELO (Cumbiatón, LA)

La Junta crew will be in Tucson, AZ on this night, scheduled for our own friendly takeover of the awesome El Tambó event, so we’ll be with you in spirit, sharing the music we love on the road. We’re leaving you in highly capable hands, so come out to El Dorado DTLA and dance your pineapples off like you do! We’ll see you again on NYE 😉

Heyyy! It’s a PIÑA week! Come boogie with us at El Dorado DTLA this Friday March 9th as we celebrate our talented brother YUKICITO’s birthday!! CHIEF BOIMA of INTL BLK will be on the decks as the special guest deejay in the main room, adding a whole lotta pan-African musical love to the festivities, while my old partner in crime from Ecléctica, DJ REYES (Forró in LA) joins us in the Coco Lounge. Along with the LA JUNTA SOUND SYSTEM, the music is gonna be bananas (and pineapples) all night!

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!
