These accomplished musicians blend and contrast styles in compelling and sometimes shocking ways. Their art is not an experiment. It is passionate and alive because of their deep understanding and mastery of the individual styles of music they play. Estradasphere's music is cerebral, vibrant, and daringly playful.
The Estradasphere experience includes passion, humor, and at times, awe-inspiring brilliance. Their music is complex yet inviting, seducing the listener across time, space, and genre.
Estradasphere shows are intensely dynamic: outrageous yet introspective, tongue-in-cheek yet sincere. Every show is unique, never ceasing to stir excitement and challenge the audience's expectations.
They continue to expand their performance experience, appearing at nightclubs, festivals, universities, symphony halls, theaters, and even circuses. Currently based out of Seattle, WA.
