I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Dave is a seasoned professional who has been blessed to play some very exclusive shows at such a young age. Among them are:
Copenhagen Blues Festival (Denmark), Herning Blues Rock Festival (Denmark), USO tour of Hungary, Bosnia and Macedonia (supporting Archie Bell and the Drells), Chicago Blues Festival (With the Jimmy Burns Band, With Kenny Smith, With Dave Specter), Linkoping Great Jazz Festival 2x (Linkoping, Sweden), Springfield Blues Festival (Springfield, IL), SXSW (4 years), Tour Sweden 4x, Tour Norway 8x, 3 month tour Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland accompanied with Blues in Schools, Springing the Blues Festival 3x, Fitzgerald's Nightclub with the Blasters, A Taste of Lincoln (with Katherine Davis), Doug Sahm Memorial Tribute Concert at Antone's Nightclub (with Lazy Lester and Charlie Sexton)

Dave Herrero began playing music professionally at the tender age of 20 years old in Jacksonville, FL. Initially, he was largely influenced by Muddy Waters, Albert King and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, which (with the help of friend Seth Walker) prompted his move to Austin, TX.

Dave cut his teeth in Austin, playing with the who's who of the Austin blues community (Marcia Ball, Charlie Sexton, Seth Walker, Gary Clark Jr, Matt Powell, The Keller Bros., Nick Curran, Lazy Lester etc.), and was the guitarist and opening act for Houston legends Archie Bell and the Drells. With Archie, Dave completed his first USO tour of Hungary, Bosnia and Macedonia in support of our troops overseas. While in Austin, Dave began touring Scandinavia, selling anywhere from 250 to 500 tickets per show.

In Austin, he opened for 'Blue Monday' at the world famous Antone's Nightclub with Mark Goodwin and Rob Roy Parnell for a year and a half. When he would play the legendary 6th Street club, Joe's Generic Bar, the club would quite often be above fire marshal capacity, and on more than one occasion, the fire marshal would come to clear the club from being over the 150 person limit. During this time, Dave sold 3,000 copies of his freshman release, 'Hard Life Blues'.

Before relocating to Chicago, with the help of Mark 'Kaz' Kazanoff, Nicole Shiro and Nancy Coplin, Dave founded a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization called "The Blues Society of Austin", now "The Austin Blues Society".
