Orlando Salinas
"Trumpet Extraordinaire"
Born in the heart of all trumpet players is that one sound that set them asside from all other musicians. Orlando Salinas came to the Carrales Showband with that one note, that one sound. Winner of the affections of all who hear him, Orlando is one of the finest horn blowers in South Texas. He boasts a long list of mentors, Orlando has grown up with the South Texas mariachi, band and jazzband styles and the people who made that sound happen.

The "Trumpet Extraordinaire" (as he is known in the musical community) has performed with some of South Texas' best musicians and is a true student of music. Orlando is currently a Drum Major for Kingsville's Fighting Brahma Band and a lead trumpet player in Kingsville's Marichi Del Rey. We are fortunate indeed to have the "Trumpet Extraordinaire" as a member of the Fabulous Carrales Showband!
