Hook Herrera
Born in San José (Los Angeles-USA) moved to Spain from where has published two CDs. He started as guitar player, passing later to the harmonica too, we will get attention in his harmonica facet, whose extracts a rolling sound which build a personal atmosphere, where we find his love toward the sound West Coast, coalitions with the Jive, his melodic harmonica, softness and hardness and his Chicago sound. He coincided at the end of the 80s and earlies of the 90s with such some big ones as William Clarke, Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, even joined a season with the Allman Brothers. And of course with Willy DeVille...

Great War song by DeVille Band w/ Hook Herrera

'Low Rider' a great War song by the Willy DeVille Band with Hook Herrera on harp live in Paradiso Amsterdam Holland (2006) from the dvd 'Live In The Lowlands'.


  1. Great Golly! LA Herrera on the hook!

  2. Have always loved the openers that the band did before Willy arrived on stage: Harlem Nocturne, Play That Mellow Sax, Theme from Peter Gun, and Lowrider. Great tunes. Great renditions. Always looked like they were having a great time:)
