Los Domingueros is a unique band that combines the love of Latin dance and ska under the lead of front-man Josue Urrutia. The band was started in August of 2021, following a car accident that put Josue on a soul-searching journey. After playing at a venue as a solo artist, he quickly assembled some musician friends to perform as a band, which sparked the birth of Los Domingueros.

The band has quickly become one of New Mexico’s hottest tickets, transcending genres and music scenes. Los Domingueros’ musical variety, bilingual fluency, and diversity allows them the flexibility to play with almost any band or genre. Their live shows are a combination of original music by Josue and unique spins on well-known Latin, ska, and reggae classics. In their short time together, Los Domingueros has played with local legends such as Mickey Cruz, Nosotros, Baracutanga, Keith Sanchez and Hooks and the Huckleberries, as well as national acts like Through The Roots and Frontera Bugalu. They have also shared the stage with legendary international bands such as The Toasters and The English Beat. Los Domingueros’ success has led to them being featured in Albuquerque The Magazine’s July 2022 edition and collaborating with Turquoise Trail Brewing to release a signature beer called Chela Chingona Mexican Lager.
