‘dem apples.

Even though we announced that LA JUNTA will be celebrating the 2018 New Year’s Eve by hosting our PIÑA event on Sunday December 31st, the upcoming second Friday of the month falls during this week on DECEMBER 8, meaning it’s our regular PIÑA party! Above is he flier that I created for it last night. When I sent it out to them this morning, the team immediately alerted me that I had made a couple of mistakes on the date. AND I realized that I hadn’t added the signature pineapple in the background. Anyway I love how it turned out! The pink, chocolate, black and bamboo green tones look great together.

Pictured on the flier is the Vietnamese pop group “3 Trái Táo” (The Apples 3, circa 1975).
If you’re anywhere near DTLA this Friday night, definitely stop by El Dorado DTLA! 9pm / Free.

Just posting up some images that I did spotlighting the La Junta crew for a recent promo campaign for our summer event series. Here we are. This is us.

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!

This Thursday DECEMBER 10th, LA JUNTA is co-hosting an Winter Dance Party at DTLA’s LA CITA BAR, featuring superb live music by tropical surfrockers SALT PETAL, dark melodians BLACKWATER JUKEBOX, and one of LA’s newest and most exciting Latin pop ensembles SIN COLOR! Not that you’d ever need an excuse to hang out at LA CITA, but this event will be as good as any. Hope you’ll grab the dancin’ crew and join us. See ya there!!

P.S. This isn’t one of my fliers 😉

I’ve been asked to be the deejay for the debut of a new dance night at THE CONTINENTAL CLUB in Downtown Los Angeles, happening on THURSDAY OCTOBER 1ST! The event is called THE CONFESSIONAL. I was booked for the event based on my musical style behind the decks at Afro Funké, so expect the same blend of raw, heavy, rhythmic and soulful goodness with some sharp, tight and clean edges for a night out in the heart of our urban metropolis. Come out for a great time at this classic cocktail lounge and let’s conversate deeply in music and movement.
