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 ‘Chef’s Night Out’ held on the evening of Friday the 29th, but we’ll see you there for the Gran Tasting on Saturday afternoon in the LA sunshine!

Our boys Glenn Red, degruvme and Yukicito 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 Latinx food chefs and restaurants.

Jan 24, 2019 | YANGA x NYCT Release Party

On Thursday January 24th, La Junta are excited and honored to support our friends from the band YANGA, Southern California’s foremost torchbearers of the traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms! Together, we’ll be celebrating the release of two volume singles on Brooklyn-based record label, NAMES YOU CAN TRUST.

For those who have followed us for some time, you already know how much we love the band and that we’re thrilled to work with them every time. The bill also includes the funky, psychedelic Latin sounds of SISTER MANTOS as well as the high energy, discolicious selections of DJ VICK JAGGER. MEL LOERA (aka Miss Chief) hosts the evening.

As always, there’s lots goin’ on in LA on this night, and this is one of them. See you at La Cita!

Doors at 8pm | Admission $8.00

Peace out 2018…

HAPPY NEW YEAR from La Junta!!

We sincerely thank you for another year of your strong support and sweet friendship. You all continue to amaze and enrich our lives as we grow, morph and shift while on our mission to create spaces for our community of good people to gather in the name of good music. We’re so, so grateful to you for attending our events, booking us to deejay, and trusting us to produce and curate musical programs. Most of all, thank you for having fun with us! 

And we certainly had fun on New Year’s Eve, right?! Below are the photos the PIÑA NYE Celebration at El Dorado. With so many fantastic parties happening in Los Angeles, we were definitely grateful and blessed that so many of you came out to join us. In fact, we unexpectedly hit capacity. Much love and respect to our guest performers–AL JACKSON, GARFIELD ADAMS and SAMBA ROYALE feat. NICOLEA PETTIS–for sharing their wonderful talent. Extra thanks as well, to the Soul Children’s mcdj1One aka ALEX BURLEY for holding down the mic duties in the main room.

Thank you for coming looking beautiful and dapper, and dancing your booties off all night long! As always, like, tag and share! We’ll see you back at El Dorado for the first PIÑA of the year on Friday, January 11th!

What are you doing New Year’s Eve?!

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

La Junta crew here checkin’ in with you during these mad times. The good news is that 2018 is coming to an end and we’re about halfway to having that opportunity to make things right again. The bad news is that we’re still only about halfway there. Nevertheless, it’s that time of year to focus on being with family and friends and to take the time to celebrate life together. With that in mind, we’ve accepted the call to host our second PIÑA NEW YEARS EVE celebration at EL DORADO DTLA!!

Azalea – Dia De Los Muertos Celebration

Big thanks to the community of South Gate, CA and the management of Azalea Regional Shopping Center for having LA JUNTA curate the musical acts and provide sound for the 2018 Dia de los Muertos celebration! Below are the photos we shot of all the amazing costumes, altars, kids’ activities, vendors, deejays, musicians and community members. We had a great time helping activate the parking lot for the good folks of Southeast LA!

Special thanks to our featured live band LA MERA CANDELARIA, our guest deejays SIZZLE and FUNKY CARAMELO, as well as to all the awesome vendors who provide these community events with such style and good energy. Look for more community-oriented La Junta gatherings in 2019!!
