Every month the biggest Latin Party in CU can be found underneath the Canopy with DJ Zay.
Our next scheduled Latin Night is Friday, October 7th!
From DJ Zay: For everyone to know me a bit better, I was born in Chicago Illinois. I lived in a neighborhood called Back of the yards most of my childhood/preteen years. From my parents both being from the motherland Michoacán Mexico 🇲🇽 and coming to the 🇺🇸 United States for a better life. Sadly my dad got taken when I was 8 by ICE. At the time my mom was taking care of 6 of us (my brothers and sisters) we were in the struggle. We weren’t rich. Yet, what kept us going was my mom pride, work ethic, love and support. Yesterday I printed this picture the biggest I can get it to be in the living room of her house along side with my graphic design degree 📜 I never graduated high school due to gang violence. I never gave up tho.

The emotions coming from her is the reason why I keep pushing to become better and bigger. She was my investor of what I wanted to do. She did not like it tho but she wanted me to follow my dreams. Those $100 to get equipment turned into something bigger she never expected. Every memory I make with people I cherish. Carbondale is home base due to going to college there and being the first Latin event I’ve ever done when I was 17. Now being 23 I am doing huge numbers at @canopyclub meeting a new crowd. Making you walk into a room with music we love to hear but don’t have a representation to our Hispanic heritage. I love everyone support and knowledge everyone has given me. Alongside with my best friends @lostinthew0rld @officialswagking those guys are my brothers. When you keep a tight circle you know who really is there for you. Thank you everyone from @thehangar9 to @canopyclub let’s continue to break these numbers. Let’s show off the pride we work for. Ain’t nothing stronger than a Hispanics pride.
