saturday june 8 | bold pas art

This Saturday afternoon, I’ll be back in Old Pasadena for my third year deejaying at the BoldPas art event! Between last year’s sprinkly day and the more recent May gray x June gloom this year, I’ve got my fingers crossed for lots of sunshine this weekend. Regardless though, I’ll be playing lots of sunshine music! Stop by and find me posted up on the Big Bang Theory alleyway next to the Dog Haus Biergarten at 93 E. Green Street. Come out for a boogie and say hello!

saturday may 4 | live on los robles

Hey Amig@s!

With this year’s Cinco de Mayo falling on a Sunday, La Junta has decided to make it easier on everyone by hosting a celebration on Saturday May 4th! We’re calling it “LIVE! on Los Robles” as we’ll be featuring a performance by LA’s dynamic Latin fusion band Calle Placer who last Spring wowed us at a Hollywood garden party, and because we’re revisiting our crew’s humble beginnings by hosting this event in Pasadena at The Mixx.

The venue (formerly The Terrace) is under new management and has been remodeled and reworked as a casually elegant restaurant/bar with excellent reviews and a weekly program of live music. We can’t wait to bring our Afro-Latin dance vibes back to La Junta’s hometown, and of course you’re invited!

9PM | 21+ | Free with RSVP on Eventbrite | $5 Door

friday november 2 | salsa on the alley

Old Pasadena Day of the Dead Weekend invites everyone to the outdoor historic Big Bang Theory Way alley for an evening of salsa and rhythm! Dance the night away under the festive string lighting in the heart of Old Pasadena.

Curated by La Junta and featuring live music by Cuba Rumba, the evening features a salsa dance exhibition and instruction by Prestige Dance & Fine Arts to get everyone warmed up for open dancing with the band and deejays, performing salsa and a wide variety of other rhythms.

The evening also features FREE calaveras/calacas face painting in the tradition of Dia de los Muertos and a Community Altar that allows the public to leave remembrances of passed loved ones.
