Yours truly, DJ Glenn Red, will be back upstairs at General Lee’s Cocktail House in LA’s Chinatown this Saturday, July 24th, with my regularly scheduled solo residency called Rum ‘N’ Sugar!
Along with my guest deejay Mano Gil of Sonido Tropical (San Luis Obispo), we all had a blast last month dancing to everything from currulao to champeta, cumbia to band, guaguancó to reggaetón, samba to coco, afrobeats to soca, and more! Might even have a special guest coming through!
Good music, good cocktails, and good vibes all night. See you there!
General Lee’s Cocktail House 475 Ging Ling Way Chinatown Plaza Los Angeles CA
Shouts and big THANK YOUs to everyone who tuned in and joined last weekend’s SALA event on Zoom! Our featured visual, literary, and musical artists were all fantastic once again! Loads of gratitude to Wendell Wiggins, Katia Moraes, Noel Alumit, Norma Liliana Valdez, and Elvia Susana Rubalcava for lending their talents to our audience for the evening.
Extra special thanks to everyone who stuck around to dance to the deejays sets by DJ Reyes and yours truly. I had some people asking about songs from my set, so here they are in order below. Happy hunting and we’ll see you all again on Saturday March 13th!
ARTIST / Tracklist
LAS CAFETERAS ft. QVLN & SERGIO MENDOZA / “Georgia On My Mind”
PETRONA MARTINEZ / “Un Niña Que Llora En Los Montes De Maria [King Coya Remix]”
Whoa! This is probably the earliest I’ve ever promoted out in front of this monthly fourth Saturday event that I do in Long Beach, but for some reason I already have a good feeling about it. I’m back though on Saturday September 28th with fellow resident and recent birthday boy Eusébio Akasa at Mezcalero LBC for the event we call VIVO! Here, we rock many of the finest tunes in cumbia, afrobeat, funk, samba, salsa, hip-hop, reggaeton, afropop, and Caribbean rhythms and more. Come check it out as we get live on the second floor cantina! It’s free and poppin’!
Much love to everyone who came out to the Mayfair Hotel LA on Fat Tuesday!! Thank you for braving the rain and lightning storms…but I think you’ll agree that the thunder was definitely inside the building that night 🙂
I was thrilled over the opportunity to play a lot of music that I love throughout the night. Several people came up to the deejay booth and asked about certain songs that I played during my sets that evening–which I love–so I’m posting them down below. Happy Hunting!
