Just posting up some images that I did spotlighting the La Junta crew for a recent promo campaign for our summer event series. Here we are. This is us.

LA JUNTA, my deejay crew and music event of the same name, have announced the dates for our Summer 2017 run. We’ve been working hard to curate an amazing lineup of deejays, live bands and dance groups for our fifth summer season–and our second in DTLA. Yup…we’ll be back rockin’ the super fresh rooftop lounge at Don Chente Bar-Grill & Lounge, across from Staples Center. Above is our teaser flier showing the dates of our series, each show taking place on the LAST Sunday of each month from April through September. For this summer campaign, the La Junta team and I decided on a vintage futbol/soccer aesthetic. Soon you’ll see the flier announcing the lineup for our April 30th Kickoff Event. Can’t wait to show you, and of course, to see you at La Junta!!

Our final LA JUNTA summer event of 2016 falls on SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 25TH!! And we’re going out BIG with Los Angeles’ new but already beloved Selena tribute band, SELENAMOS! It takes place on the rooftop of our new home, DON CHENTE BAR-GRILL & LOUNGE in DTLA, right across from Staples Center. We’ll be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Selena’s first gold record, which was also the first for any woman in Tejano music!

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!!

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!

JUST RELEASED!!
It’s been about a year since my partners in crime, DEGRUVME and YUKICITOm and I from LA JUNTA SOUND SYSTEM began working on remixes of three tunes by our friends from local Los Angeles (Riverside) band QUITA PENAS. This past Tuesday April 12th, however, the time was right to put the remixes out into the world, into the ethers, and into the hearts of our mutual fans, and hopefully into some new ears! Much love and gratitude to the fellas of Quita Penas and to Samuel Martinez of desmadre.com for the supafresh album art.

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.
