Dennis was born and raised in San Jose, California just a heartbeat away from San Francisco the home of the hippie generation and Golden Gate Bridge. As a kid in the 60’s, Dennis' was first introduced to rock n roll via transistor radio listening day in and day out to AM & FM stations which in turn planted the music seed. Tuning into songs by The Yardbirds, Animals, Rolling Stones, James Brown, Savoy Brown, CCR, Sam and Dave, Wilson Picket, etcetera became his favorite pastime. "At age 13 I saw James Brown LIVE and was blown away." Dennis dug deep into the music scene attending rock & roll, R&B, blues and soul concerts/shows in the Bay Area, San Jose, Oakland, Santa Cruz, San Francisco at the famous Fillmore, Winterland, Avalon Ballroom and juke-joint blues clubs. Dennis’ career as a musician has been sidelined a number of times in his life with school, raising a family and a few unfortunate drug & alcohol breaks from normalcy, he is sober now for 20 plus years and since his very first live high school gig continues to perform original blues as well as his favorites. Dennis Herrera Blues will be coming to a nearby town, city, state country near you!
