Two months ago, LA JUNTA crew were approached with the idea of producing an additional night (every third Fri) at El Dorado DTLA. We bounced the idea back and forth among our team, but the predominant concern was that doing back-to-back Fridays at the same venue may see us spreading our community of followers too thin, especially with an already full Spring schedule and another potentially busy summer fast approaching. So instead, we’ve decided to offer up that extra night to a solid, young up-and-coming deejay who is well versed in Latin music and pretty much anything that will heat up a dance floor. He accepted, the management said ‘Sure’ and FUEGO was born. And to help our new friend, DJ RAW, spark it, DEGRUVME and yours truly GLENN RED will be holding down guest deejay duties in the main room! I even agreed to do his first flyer, as seen here. I kinda like how it turned out 🙂
To add to the litness, La Junta’s own YUKICITO, who’d been dreaming up an event where he could mix and dance to his favorite kinds of music–Brazilian forró and classic cumbia from Colombia, Peru and Mexico–will be taking over the back Stowaway Room (the Coco Lounge on our PIÑA nights) on these same 3rd Fridays! Joining him is one of the originators of Forró in LA, and one of my favorite selectors/old partner at the event called ‘Ecléctica’, Mr. Reyes Rodriguez. So come check out the debut of FUEGO…it’s gonna be fire!

So, right on schedule and in keeping with past summers, I’ve managed to pull my disappearing act again. I don’t think I’ve posted anything for about two months or so. If any of you have ventured over to the sidebar of this blog, you may have noticed that I usually keep my deejaying schedule pretty up-to-date. A quick glance would tell you that I’ve been a pretty busy dude. In addition to preparing music and doing the requisite promotion duties for those respective events each week, I keep my days busy making fliers for both my gigs and for other peoples’ parties. Here is a small handful of some flier work I’ve done this summer. You may see me post a couple of these images again, along with descriptions of the particular event as they get close. Maybe I’ll see you at a few 😉
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!!
