Beloved Local Tejano Musician Lupito Banda Passed Away

The Corpus Christi Tejano community is mourning the loss of Lupito Banda, a local musician who succumbed to complications due to diabetes.

Banda was a graduate from Moody High School and started Los Hermanitos Banda with his brother when he was 11 years old. He had five kids who all became musicians.

Lately, Banda had been teaching kids how to play music. On Monday, his family got a chance to share some great memories he left behind.

"He lived a great life. So many good memories to all of Corpus Christi," said Tanya Reiz, Banda's daughter. "I don't think their wasn't a wedding he didn't play."

The family is planning a celebration for Banda this weekend. He was 61 years old.
