PIÑA 2020

Hi Everyone!

La Junta here, just checkin’ back in after that wild one at our last Friday night romp at PIÑA! Y’all brought the full moon fever down the steps, around the bar and onto the dance floors…whew! Thank you for bringing that fun energy to our first PIÑA of the year. The pictures are here! Please like, tag and share ’em with your peeps far and wide.

Much love and gratitude to our Coco Lounge guest, QUILO, for bringing so much fire with his deejay set…looking forward to having him back soon! Mark your calendars and make plans to be at the next PIÑA on Friday February 14th……..we’ve got something special cookin’ because it’s Valentine’s Day <3

PIÑA NYE 2020 PHOTOS ARE UP…

RAWWWRRRR!!!

That’s the sound we heard throughout the club as the clock struck midnight and the confetti cannons popped, hurling all of us into the roaring (20)20’s!  La Junta can’t thank you enough for choosing to spend that kind of momentous occasion with us.  Hopefully we delivered the NYE experience you were hoping to have.  Based on all the smiles and the energy in our photo recap, we’d like to think so.  The pictures are here!

Much love and respect to our Boombox familia–Inka OneBen Diggin’ & Analog–for their bumpin’ takeover of the Coco Lounge bar.  We knew they’d have that room rockin’ as hard as the main room with their brand of hip-hop, beats & breaks…the perfect complement to La Junta’s afro-latin vibes.  Gratitude to El Dorado bar for hustling to serve everyone their libations and providing the beautiful spot for the revelry to happen.  Happy New Year, everyone…and we’ll see you again on Friday January 10th for the next PIÑA!

La Junta are honored……

🙌 La Junta are honored to be showcased in the @guitarcenter 2019 Holiday Dream Book “Be Heard” !

As a special project, Guitar Center has chosen to tell the stories of artists, organizations and companies who use music to make a positive difference in the face of so much turmoil in the world. With a direct circulation of 750K in the U.S., plus online and social media distribution ‘Be Heard’ hopes to serve as a continuing platform for artists to share how music supports causes they are passionate about and to elevate important discussions happening now around the world. Hopefully the stories inspire more people to follow their passions and make the world a better place with music.

The book should be hitting customers’ mailboxes the first week of November.
