Full Bio

The Herreras are a Latin guitar group of talented musicians whose passion for music has no limits or boundaries. Their genre can be classified as Latin Jazz, Latin Guitar or World. They strive to provide exceptional entertainment by doing what they love to do best; play with heart and soul.The group plays a variety of World Fusion tunes influenced by the styles of the great guitarists of this era such as Gypsy Kings, Strunz & Farah, Jesse Cook, Paco de Lucia and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Performing together since 2009, the band was founded by Esteban and Sebastian as a guitar duo. During this time, they established the roots of their music and showcased their talent to local audiences. The friendly open mic nights proved to be essential. These local gigs helped to build their confidence. Soon enough they were hooked! The adrenaline of performing in front of a live audience, the interaction with the people around them and the connection between them and their fans gave their music purpose! Later in their journey, they frequented private events and performed at cocktail hours, festivals, galas, benefit concerts and fundraisers. Along the way, the band enhanced their abilities and built a repertoire of original material that in turn became the colorful tracks to their self produced debut album 'Noche' which means 'Night.'

They each have their own unique style of playing. While Sebastian is a guitar virtuoso using finger picking techniques that allow him to reach tremendous velocity in his playing, Esteban has developed a technique using a tear drop pick which allows him to swiftly cover the entire fret board with his high speed signature move "super sonic.”

The Music

The Herreras's music can perhaps be best described as original acoustic instrumental improvisational Latin guitar music, or Latin Jazz. Their music invites the listener to experience a colorful and passionate melody and an array of Afro-Caribbean beats, Latin American folk, and rumba flamenca influences that converge in an improvisational Jazz context.

We had such a great experience with the Herreras from planning to the event itself, I highly recommend them! We selected them for our wedding and more than the venue, food, wine, etc., EVERYONE raved about the band. They were incredibly professional, a class act, and one of the best latin guitarists I've seen perform. I was honored to have them at our wedding and they really made it a special evening to remember. Thank you Esteban for being so accommodating and helping plan such a great event, and thanks to the whole group for a killer performance!

From the beginning, the Herreras were always accommodating and willing to work with us through telephone or emails. On the day of our wedding, they arrived early, set up and played for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Our guests loved them. The Herreras were extremely professional, didn't need to be given any instructions. They knew exactly what had to be done and took care of entertaining our guests. Our guests enjoyed listening to their beautiful music. They put our guests at ease. Their live entertainment added a touch of class and sophistication to our wedding. I highly recommend the Herreras for weddings or any other occasions.
