FEATURED MEMBER BAND “DUNCECAP JOYRIDE”
Our featured member this week is the band “Duncecap Joyride” from Denver, Colorado. Current band members are Joshua Richard D’Estrada, Robby Roberts, and Mike Malenoski.
Joshua Richard D’Estrada was born in Denver, Colorado and started playing piano at age 5. In late elementary school he learned guitar at Colorado School of Music. While going to school at the now Metropolitan State University in Denver, he began slowly writing and recording music. With many extensive breaks in music between 2003 and 2008, including a long hiatus in which he had given up recording, his first album was soon to see the light of day. Utilizing the talents of his good friend Phil Sandoval, photographer and album designer, and local music engineering student Russ Hersee at Metro State, the 1st album was finalized. In late 2009, the first album The Distance Between You and Me was released.
A few years later, Joshua was introduced to Robby Roberts. Born in California as William George Roberts, Robby grew up as a studio drummer and was one of many musicians along the Sunset Strip during the 60’s and 70’s. Learning from and playing with legend and good friend Buddy Miles, Robby had the privilege of playing with great musicians including The Seekers and the Turtles. Months after Robby received the first DunceCap JoyRide album, the two of them decided to get together for the next project. Joshua and Robby started recording in April 2012.
Wanting to utilize different styles, the two invited other musicians to be featured in the new album, including guitarists Mike Malenoski and Tyler Hughes, saxophone player Miller Crone, and vocalist Kim Sullerud. Once recording was finished in January 2013, Robby and Joshua teamed up with Steve Sirockin, owner of Altitude Recording in Boulder, CO to mix and master the new album. Bringing in the talents of Phil Sandoval for album design and photographer Vinnie White of Vinnie W Photography, DunceCap JoyRide’s 2nd album “Where The Whiskey Pours” was released late February 2013.
In the early summer of 2013, Robby and Joshua brought in second album guest musician Mike Malenoski to DunceCap JoyRide. Two EP’s and music videos are expected to be released by Duncecap Joyride in the summer of 2014. The band’s upcoming music was written by each member almost completely separate from the other two, creating different and unique interpretations of how the songs should evolve.
