Here are answers to many of the questions we have been getting asked regarding Sundays kickoff.
Thank you, Los Angeles!
We had such a blast with everyone at last Friday’s PIÑA 2 Year Anniversary! We’re overjoyed at how the event has evolved into one of DTLA’s sureshot events for a Friday night! We sincerely want to thank each and every of you who’ve ever come out to El Dorado for our event and tore it up on the dance floor and sipped at the bar. You are everything.
Special thanks to the great teams from K-LOVE 107.5 FM and JACK DANIELS ® for their support of our anniversary event. We hope to do even more fantastic events with them in the future! And of course, much love and gratitude to Todd Simon and Fred Locks for bringing their stellar musicianship and great energy to the celebration…we cannot wait to have them back soon!!
But without further ado, the photos are up! Check them out and be sure to like, tag and share them with your peeps! We’ll see at our next event at our 2019 Summer Kickoff Brunch on Sunday May 26 and/or at the June episode of PIÑA on Friday June 14th!

Much love to the good folks of CUMBIATRON & Mezcal Lounge Fresno, ¡WEPA! & Deer Lodge Ojai, SONIDO TROPICAL & SLO Brew Rock San Luis Obispo for showing us fun and memorable times during last weekend’s La Junta Tropi-Cal Weekend Tour. Over the three days, we traveled about 750 miles, met some really cool people, hit three parties with fun music, and had plenty of terrific food along the way (We think the resounding favorite among the crew was the BBQ dinner thrown for us by DJ Elixir of WEPA and his wife Adriana, seen in the featured image–those ribs though!). We also really loved the hard-driving cumbia sonidera deejay sets by El Selector, Don del Toro and Jalinche of the Cumbiatron crew, as well as all of the mesmerizing cumbia dancers who swung all night long at Mezcal Lounge. Sunday’s afternoon brunch gig in SLO was the perfect way to end the weekend and our tour. Though quite windy at times, it was a sunny and relaxed affair where we got to spend Easter outdoors at a large brewery with a brunch buffet, beer/mosas, cornhole, ping pong and other games. We also got to stretch out musically, adding disco, soul, rock and a few other types of sounds to our regularly scheduled tropical repertoire.
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!!
Featuring two rooms of music with:
LA JUNTA SOUND SYSTEM (Yukicito, Glenn Red, Degruvme)
AL JACKSON (Soul Children, Juju)
