Herman Astro is a Milwaukee-based band whose current lineup was solidified in 2009. Stepbrothers Zachary Pluer (vocals/acoustic guitar) and Cody Calderon (drums), joined childhood friends Eric LeMieux (electric guitar) and Adam Dosemagen (bass), in what proved to be a powerful assemblage of their diverse musical backgrounds. Characterized by locked in drums and bass (funk, jazz and latin influences), gritty and riffy guitar hooks, and buttery, deeply soulful vocals, Herman Astro has created a sound with rich dynamics and intensely emotive qualities.
