"What unabashed talent!"

~ Skyler Fell, Accordion Apocalypse



Balkan beats, Klezmer stylings, and serious good times define the music of Oakland-based band Hernandez Hideaway. Playing the Bay and beyond since 2009, this band is always working hard to find that sweet spot where traditional meets modern.

Bottoms up: bass (Dan Harrison), accordion (Tim Phillips), trombone (Sam Hernandez), saxophone (Claire Phillips), and voice (Lucie Duffort).

"...shows of Hernandez’s growling trombone..."

"...Duffort’s vocals are soulful and sensuous..."

"...giddiness on stage and thrift shop-chic costuming."

"You sound like flying hippopotamuses in the sky!"
