A local musician is preparing for six months of shows and he is doing it with the guidance of Taylor Swift’s former manager. Herbie Desseyn, of Hampton, is the lead vocalist and guitar player for Herbie D and the Dangermen, an acoustic blues band that has been entertaining crowds in the eastern US.

The band, which is giving away free downloads of its music at, will spend the next six months performing at venues throughout Virginia, Tennessee, Ohio, and North Carolina.

Desseyn says former Taylor Swift manager Rick Barker, of Nashville, has been advising the band on subject matters related to music business and marketing. The relationship is leading to some big things for Herbie D and the Dangermen.

“Rick Barker points out alot of things concerning running the band as a business that I may already know, but have forgot to pay attention to as well as giving us ways to look at things in a different perspective than we do now,” says Desseyn. Herbie Desseyn and his band mates are also scheduled to make a September trip to Nashville where they will spend two days training with Tom Jackson, considered by many to be the top live music producer in the world. Jackson has helped hone the live performance skills of some of the most popular music acts in the world, including Taylor Swift, The Band Perry, and Jordin Sparks of American Idol.

Herbie D and the Dangermen represented the River City Blue’s Society of Virginia at the 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. The band’s second CD, “Dangerous With Blues”, was released late last year and is available for purchase at

Herbie D. and the Dangermen will be playing in Virginia Beach, Virginia on April 11, 2014 and dates in Mat 2014. If your a Blues fan this is a band you will not want to miss. See their play dates in the area HERE.
