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!

Night of the *Dancing* Dead

¡Hola, Folks!

It’s been a little over a month since our last post! Since the summer ended, the four of us have really just been normalizing and decompressing a bit after a jam-packed summer of fun and amazing but equally grueling shows. We’re proud of having produced our La Junta seasonal events at three different venues with distinctly different vibes (and challenges); of having produced a show with a Latin Grammy®-nominated international artist; and of producing shows for brand new partner clients, all in the space of six months. This while still growing our monthly late night PIÑA sessions!

Even though we’re now in autumn and starting to shift things indoors, last weekend the LA area was blessed with a few warm days and nights, in timely fashion for our second salsa music event with the good folks who represent the Old Pasadena business and arts district. Below is collection of photos taken by our own Prescilla and Yukicito throughout the opening evening of this year’s Old Pasadena Day of the Dead celebration. For 2018, it was newly titled ‘SALSA ON THE ALLEY’. Based on the comments on social media channels, it looks like we had a hit! We already cannot wait until next year! Sincerest gratitude to the OPMD staff, the City of Pasadena, Cuba Rumba (featured live band), Prestige Dance & Fine Arts (dance instructors), Sólido (congas) and Rubén Salinas (saxophone).

Enjoy the photos.

Before we say goodbye…..Thank you!!

Before we say goodbye on Sunday June 24th to a venue that supported our vision we want to say THANK YOU!!
