thursday january 9 | live from the mayfair

It’s only a day away and I still can’t wait to open this Thursday’s ‘Live from The Mayfair’ show for the amazing Ethio Cali and the young and talented K.Roosevelt with his forward thinking brand of soul music. Come out for a soulful, cozy live music experience that just might eventually turn into a bangin’ dance party!

tuesday december 17 | hodgepodge

Tuesday, December 17th…save the date! I’ll be back for more at the ever so cool Hodgepodge LA with the one and only trumpeter/arranger/bandleader/deejay, Todd Simon. We had a blast jamming at Apotheke the last two times we were paired up, so I’m eager to do it all over again. It’s one of the best events to attend on a Tuesday night, and perhaps the best of the week. Alongside the artistic and unique elixir-style cocktails crafted by the resident mixologists, the soulful music and stylish patrons make Hodgepodge an easy and satisfying night out in LA.

saturday september 28 | vivo

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’!

saturday mar 30 | latin food fest

Join LA JUNTA crew as we perform all afternoon long at the 7th Annual ¡LATIN FOOD FEST! on Saturday March 30th, with this year’s Los Angeles event taking place at LA State Historic Park near Chinatown! It’s a two-day event with the ‘Chefs Night Out’ on Friday the 29th, but we’ll see you all the next day for the Gran Tasting festivities in the LA sunshine.

Degruvme, Yukicito and yours truly will be providing all the wonderful Afro-Latin sounds that you can sip and grub to as you stroll the grounds tasting all the incredible flavors from LA’s top Latin food chefs and restaurants.

Last August’s event in San Diego was one of the most fun events that we took part in and we’re so excited to tell all of our LA friends about this one here in March. See the link below for details and save the date!
