    Josué Estrada Band, Wichita, KS

    Josué Estrada Band Wichita, KS

    Josué Estrada: trumpeter and sound architect, born from Mexican immigrants, draws from a deep well of existential themes that he brings to bear across myriad artistic settings. Josué’s music draws from both his jazz background and his having toured half the globe, performing in projects rooted in bossanova surfpunk (Bellafonte) and then later, Dixieland-punk-bluegrass (Carrie Nation and the Speakeasy.)


    As realized in the original music played by the Josué Estrada Band, he has now found a wide audience for the transcendent “Chicano jazz” that only he can make: honoring the masters through time, incorporating inimitable style from his OG’s, avant-garde to boleros, and pulling spiritual jazz greats from the past into the present. Josué has recently recorded The Josué Estrada Band’s highly anticipated debut EP at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, and in the meantime will be releasing two new singles expected to come out in May.
