The Joshua Payne Orchestra is a jazz band with a street playlist.
"Looking for super-personal (if not out-and-out singular/eccentric) psych-noir interpretations of pop/blues/jazz repertoire played on bizarre guitar (and an amp that looks like a cross between a car grille and a space heater)?? Look no further than Joshua Payne and his marvelous trio. Perfect for your every twisty occasion...." -Nels Cline, Wilco
"The Joshua Payne Orchestra takes their love of both vintage and modern music and merges them to create something contemporary and quirky. The result is a feel-good cacophony of innovative composition." -City Weekly
"From jamming in the streets to jamming with Les Paul––this is the perfect description of what Payne is capable of." -SLUG
JPO...a jazz trio with a DJ's playlist able to spark a raging dance party or relax into a sophisticated lounge atmosphere.

The band can adapt to any environment, from rough-and-tumble bars to glitzy hotel ballrooms.
