LA HORA DEL BLUES,  Oct. 10, 2015

www.lahoradelblues.com  www.radiotubelive.com

   "If there's one track on Livin' Life Not Worryin' that sums up Herrera as a musician, it's The Sun in Shining.  This soulful blues tune built on major chords features optimistic lyrics and plenty of solo space for the rest of the band.  The Dennis Herrera Blues Band's positive vibe is a refreshing departure from the "badass" image that so many white blues musicians feel is mandatory.  This alone makes Herrera a welcome new face on today's blues scene."- Jon Klienman

"Twelve songs where the inspiration and the excellent work of all these guest artists shines at a very high level, together with Dennis’ band including Dennis Herrera vocal and guitar, Denis Depoitre harmonica, Hank Van Sickle bass, Rich Wenzel piano, organ and wurlitzer and Lee Campbell drums. All of them show how their real and genuine blues has to be played to make it sound passionate and deep rooted with no affectation or an excessively polite music. There is simple and well known electric blues but, what you want me to say, I madly love it. ESSENTIAL. "  - Vicente Zumel

"Deep down, what is the blues all about? Some people believe that this genre is a sad one, meant to move people to tears. It’s true some of the most common themes are heartbreak, deprivation, and irritation. Blues are meant for catharsis – an emotional release, though not necessarily one in the vein of weepy romance dramas. San Jose, California’s Dennis Herrera Blues Band is Livin’ Life Not Worryin’, and in this reviewer’s opinion, the cathartic nature of the blues is the reason why. On twelve dynamite original tracks, Herrera and several outstanding guest stars give their all to the “Hakuna Matata” (“No worries”) sentiment that they express." - Rainey Wetnight


For over 20 years, the Dennis Herrera Blues Band have been a hard working quintessential American blues band.  The group’s distinctive and powerful sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles and blues legends manifested itself into a unique musical dynamo. Dennis Herrera’s style as a player, songwriter and bandleader can be thought of as an invigorating mix of so many inspirational influences. Known for his unprecedented simple yet complex attack, his clean & uncluttered style capitalizes on expressing the emotion and message deep within the music. 

 

Dennis Herrera and his band utilizes raw emotion, simplicity, and an elegance that is powerful and accessible, communicating exactly what they feel in every performance. It’s an approach that translates to their audience with fervor and grace.

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."
