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!
Facebook Event: La Junta Season Finale featuring SELENAMOS
Spread the word and join us!
Here’s one of my latest flier designs, announcing the first LA JUNTA summer event:
LA JUNTA is back for our fourth summer of good music, good people and good times!! While the boys have been gigging steadily as guests at other events, we’ve missed coming together at good ol’ Fronteras Cantina in Alhambra and partying on the patio like we do!
For our summer kickoff, we’ve invited back the first band we ever worked with at La Junta, way back when we were a fledgling event in east Pasadena. The fellas from LA CHAMBA return with their East Los Angeles working class take on the pyschedelic cumbia chicha sounds that originated in Peru. As with all La Junta events, it will be a heavy dancing affair!
The date is SUNDAY JUNE 26th…start breaking in your summer dancing shoes!!

These are the portrait flier and the Instagram-sized square image for the next BOOM YARD reggae and tropical music happening at LA’s DELICIOUS PIZZA. This west coast eatery is brought to you by the same folks from legendary LA street music label ‘Delicious Vinyl’ (Tone Loc, Brand New Heavies, The Pharcyde, Masta Ace, etc.), while BOOM YARD is the brainchild of Leslie Cooney and AFRO FUNKÉ’s Cary Sullivan, featuring Jamaican platter-master DJ Delano behind the turntables. This next event happens Sunday February 14th–VALENTINES DAY for some of you! This might make a great afternoon/evening date spot for a bit of reggae swaying with your boo (I’m too old to say ‘bae’).
I’m a few days late posting this since it happened on 10/14, but this was the flier for the latest installment of CANTO, my monthly world music affair on the second Tuesday of each month at The OffBeat Bar in Highland Park/Los Angeles. Hope to see you in November!
Here’s my latest flier design for the next LA JUNTA event on Sunday 6/22. The Summer Kickoff event was pretty outrageous and now that we’re smack dab in the middle of futbol’s World Cup, we’re expecting the energy to keep flying high! Hope you’ll join us if you’re in the LA area 🙂
I just submitted this final version of the poster/online flyer that I designed for the annual Batizado & Troca de Cordas at BodySport Capoeira. I’ll also be deejaying the afterparty event on Feb 1st down at their Long Beach studio. I’ve worked with the good folks there on several occasions now and I always look forward to mixing for this group of awesome capoeiristas/dancers/music lovers. This time, I’ll be arming myself with some extra Forró tuneage….BIG thanks to Rebecca Araujo and Mestre Roque for inviting me back!
