September PIÑA pics are up!!

Greetings, Friendlies!

September seems to be flying by…we just had our last PIÑA event on the 13th and we already have to start thinking about the next one on October 11th!  However, before we can do that, we still gotta share a handful of photos from this most recent pineapple-flavored frenzy:

Thanks to our special guest, DJ Ear Jordan, for holding down the Stowaway aka ‘Coco Lounge’ with the bright soulful sounds of house, boogie, nu disco and more!  We look forward to having him back with us soon!  As always, like, tag and share the photos far and wide and tell ’em La Junta sent ya home smiling 🙂

Hi, Friends!

This message contains a bit of delayed gratitude as it’s been a crazy eventful six weeks!

Much love and respect to Matt Himes and his team at Levitt LA for the invitation to curate the evening and for the work they do in planning, programming, and producing 50 diverse and excellent shows during the season.  Thank you to our friends from Discostan, Doctors & Engineers, LA Bollywood and La Diabla for gracing the event with their fantastic performances, and of course, to you for coming out to picnic, smile and dance all evening long!  Tag, share and like the pix as you please <3

‘De Todos Lados’ photos are up!

THANK YOU, Los Angeles (& beyond)! We you!
 
We’re at least week late in following up the De Todos Lados benefit concert with this message of collective gratitude, but we wanted to say it accompanied by a record of the magical vibes that we created together with you all. So without further ado, it is with special thanks, love and admiration to the event’s official photographer, Eric Parsons Photography, that we’re announcing “The pictures are ready!”
 
 
As a music/arts production crew, La Junta aims to gather as many positive, beautiful people as possible at each event, to create an uplifting joy that spreads into our communities. The opportunity to help produce De Todos Lados was another big step for us in this mission. We’re so grateful to the amazing team at Al Otro Lado for trusting us with this fundraising project, which at its core is a stand against both the dismantling of democracy and the erosion of human decency. They will continue to have our full support. With that said, we’re incredibly proud to say that together we raised about $24K for the cause, with that amount coming from ticket sales, bar sales and modest donations from within our community! Wow!!
