Thank you, LA!

We can’t thank you enough for the way you all turned out and came to supported us in our new ventures this past Sunday at La Junta’s 2019 Summer Kickoff! You guys brought such great spirit and energy!

To our featured band Spaghetti Cumbia who performed a fantastic set and spurred us into a wild time on the dance floor.

Piña 2 year anniversary photos are up!

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!

Tropi-Cal Tour ∙ April 2019 recap…

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.

Great fun.Anyway, pics are up from this past weekend tour…(click on photo to view full set) enjoy!

 

 

7th Annual Latin Food Fest (LA)

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.

Last August’s event in San Diego was one of the most fun events that we took part in and we’re so excited to tell all of our LA friends about this one here in March. See the link below for details and save the date!

The 2019 St. Joseph Center ¡Latin Food Fest! will take place March 29 – 30 at the LA State Historic Park, which includes a kick-off party “Chefs Night out,” and ultimate tasting festival “Gran Tasting.”

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!!

LA JUNTA SOUND SYSTEM (Yukicito, Glenn Red, Degruvme)
AL JACKSON (Soul Children, Juju)
