Makossa LA Cookout

We're Taking it Back to Basics.
In the heyday of the Makossa Cookout, we’d set up shop in a tiny backyard in Williamsburg. We’d borrow some turntables and some janky speakers. We’d tell all the homies to come through. No stress. And since then, it has become something we never envisioned. People from all locales and different walks of life come together in the name of community and good vibes. We eat, drink, and dance together all in the name of a brief escape from the rigors of present day adult life. We’ve sort of missed those old days. So we’re taking it back to basics. We’re linking up with the homies from West Jeff To-Go (a lunch/catering spot in West Adams) and taking over their dead end block for a proper cookout situation. Food and drink will be sold. No cover w/ RSVP. Tell your homies. We’ll be waiting for you.

2018 ushers in the fourth consecutive summer for the Makossa LA Cookout. Wonway Posibul of Latin Soul Brothers brings his famous Makossa sound from San Francisco to Los Angeles to create a kickback vibe like none other. The monthly cookouts have garnered a loyal following and experienced incredible growth, including its sister event in Brooklyn (currently in its ninth consecutive season) and a three-city tour in 2017 (Charlotte, Chicago, and Atlanta) sponsored by Miller Lite.
