Steve Hester and DeJaVooDoo is a product of a series of journeys……
Steve Hester has known Chip Goodwin for over 4 decades. They grew up in the same small Delta town in Northeast Arkansas and were both musicians from an early age. They however went off in separate directions, but have connected every now and then mostly passing each other on the road. In 2013, Chip joined DeJaVooDoo
as keyboard player, slide guitarist and backup vocalist.
Steve and drummer Jason McPheron met recently and Jason was a perfect fit for Steve Hester and DeJaVooDoo. They have many of the same interests both musically ,and outside of that arena. Steve and Jason are partners in holding down the rhythm section of the band!
Zach Hawkins and Steve met at a local Blues jam in Little rock in late 2012…and it was an instant connection. Though separated by 3 decades in age the two are musically intertwined and have much the same interests and sense of humor as well as outlook on life. Steve says he’s often asked if Zach is his son and the standard answer is that he’s my younger brother from another time!
Steve has known Engineer Brian Knight since 2001 and has worked with him on a few occasions both in venues where Brian was the sound tech and then on several different recordings….again there just seemed to be that connection! In late 2013 Brian was added as road manager where he wears way too many hats to list……certainly not the least of these is making the band sound GREAT!
So…it seems that just maybe deja vu may have actually played a role in bringing together Steve Hester and the guys of DeJaVooDoo!
