In December of 2009, Herman Astro recorded their first, self-titled EP at Bobby Peru Recording in South Milwaukee, WI. The strong reception of their single “Sambawete” (named “Catchiest Song of the Year” by 88.9 Radio Milwaukee) and the buzz surrounding their live performances, allowed the band to play at venues such as Turner Hall Ballroom, High Noon Saloon and the “Emerging Artist Series” at Summerfest in support of national acts such as Fitz and The Tantrums, Kings Go Forth, Orgone, The Constellations and Milwaukee-legend Paul Cebar.
Chico is the latest album from Herman Astro, released in December of 2011. Tracked live, in a log-room, Chico captures the deep dynamics that has quickly become emblematic of Herman Astro’s sound and takes the listener through the development of Herman Astro’s sound in their sophomore year. Quick promotion of Chico created a quick buzz and the band was added as direct support for Alabama Shakes at Milwaukee's Historic Pabst Theater in March of 2012. Herman Astro was recently nominated for several WAMI awards (WI Area Music Industry), for Song of the Year - "Tell Me (What I Gotta Do)", Album of the Year - "Chico", and Male Vocalist of the Year - Zachary Pluer. In support of Chico, Herman Astro toured in Fall of 2012, highlighted by a showcase performance at New Orleans' Cutting Edge Music Festival, and highly publicized/attended performances in the Colorado area.
In Summer of 2013, Herman Astro opened for Blues Traveler at Summerfest (Milwaukee), headlined two major, Milwaukee music festivals and is on their second national tour.
