Rhythm Highways

06:34AM (6:40) Dennis Herrera Blues Band "Sun Is Shining (feat. Dan McCann)" from "Livin' Life Not Worryin'" (2015) on Dennis Herrera New -- Dennis is from the San Jose area, but his blues include a healthy dollop of Texas twang. Good stuff, featuring Parisian Denis Depoitre on harp, and Ardent Audio Productions honcho Rich Wenzel on organ, keys and production.

Thanks for listening!!!

Snuck back into the old neighborhood last night to see the Dennis Herrera Blues Band at Danny's in Venice. They killed as usual! Thanks to Dennis and Hank Van Sickle for letting me sit in for a couple numbers..always a good time. They will be there a lot for the summer, so if you get a chance to see them, DO IT!

"These guys play some mean blues! And they're here!"

The Dennis Herrera Blues Band were sounding so very good last night at the Melody Bar across from LAX. Some really great musicians are in the band: Dennis Herrera-guitar,vocals; Bill Bates-guitar; Chef Denis Depoitre-harmonica; Lee Campbell-drums and Hank Van Sickle-bass. Sitting in were: Mark Garralda-guitar; Jay Field-guitar & vocals and Ken Bowen on harmonica & vocalsvocal and Ken Bowen on harmonica & vocals. Oh btw, the food is really great at the Melody Bar! 

I love your music. May I wish you the very best of good luck.

Got to say......Dennis Herrera is one of the last true to the bone Blues guitarists and perpetrators of this true art form and he constantly performs with the best players in town. I am honored to be in the regular rotation of musicians that share his stage and recordings. Please show your support for live music and join us for an evening of traditional and ground breaking Blues @ Danny's Venice Bistro in Venice....see ya there!



"A new name to me, and for those who love the blues, and nothing but the blues, this will be a treat... a fine collection of songs, and all well played and produced by Dennis Herrera and Rich Wenzel.  Highly recommended!"

San Jose, California's Dennis Herrera Blues Band is Livin' Life Not Worrying' and in this reviewer's opinion, the cathartic nature of the blues is the reason why.  On the twelve dynamite original tracks, Herrera and several outstanding guest stars give their all to the "Hapuna Matata" ("No worries") sentiment that they express.

LIVING BLUES - Jon Klienman

The Dennis Herrera Blues Band's positive vibe is a refreshing departure from the "badass" image that so many white blues musicians feels is mandatory.  This alone makes Herrera a welcome new face on today's blues scene.

LA HORA DEL BLUES - Vicente Zumel

Texas, Chicago and California hold hands and come together in a repertoire full of 'howlin', muddy and rockin' raw blues', all performed with an energetic and straightforward sound able to recharge batteries and put us in top form energy with a music you will not be able to get out of it….There is simple and well known electric blues but, what you want me to say, I madly love it. ESSENTIAL.
