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!!

summer fling.

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!

Here are a few more promo images for the January 22nd Echoes of a Dream ep release event. I created the second and third images from photos taken by LA visual ethnographer Farah Sosa.

While I expressed my Thank You’s on Facebook a few days after the final La Junta event of the summer, I’ve gotten so busy with projects that I’m just now getting back to the ol’ weblog to share some stuff and express the love. THANK YOU to those of you who attended any of our LA JUNTA events this summer! It was a fantastic third season full of growth, the forging of new friendships, and the strengthening of familiar ties. Our team was blessed to have a grateful, open-eared, open-hearted eventgoers all summer, as well as an array of fantastic talent gracing the turntables, microphones and speakers. We can’t wait to do it again next summer, but be on the lookout for a couple of one-off events until then 😉

This was the final flier of the season. MUCH LOVE and RESPECT to GINGEE and VALENTÍN, and all of our guests for making the La Junta 2015 Summer Finale one to hold on to!

This coming SUNDAY AUGUST 23rd, La Junta continues to smolder as we welcome Daniela Brazil Hollywood’s ‘OYA BRAZIL’ in a fully costumed (or should we say ‘barely’ costumed?) live samba dance show! Needless to say, the boys are looking forward to this one 😉 We’ve also invited longtime homie BABY BUBBA from Vibes & Stuff Radio and Soul Sessions to help us keep fanning the flames, as well as a new friend we met two years ago from way down in Quintana Roo while the La Junta fam vacationed in Playa Del Carmen, México. The man’s in town ready to get down in LA just before joining Osunlade, Nickodemus, and Sabo at Burning Man… hope you’ll join us in welcoming our amigo, representing the NO MAS Punchis Punchis stylee–NETZA!

See you there, familia!

We’re down to the final three events of our summer season, which also means we’re bringing out the heavy hitters!

We cannot wait to dance together with you!

Bring your dancing folk and we’ll see you there!

now that’s a fly-er.

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 🙂
