"'Wake Up; Single Review"

"Fans of Dave Matthews Band and pre-Loco Fun Loving Criminals should adore the commercially flirtatious Americana of Dublin outfit El Hombre Jokes, who actually feature very little Latin influence in their music. 'Wake Up' is as infectious as it is radio friendly, a solid pop tune that calls to mind any number of 90's Man Rock faves" - Hotpress


"Wake Up - Single Review"

El Hombre Jokes are one of the best bands I've had the pleasure of seeing twice in the last few months. They have a great image, sublime musicians and a really great John Butler inspired sound. The new single 'Wake Up' simply confirms to me that El Hombre Jokes will become one of Ireland's next great acts to make a breakthrough [ie be able to make a living for at least a year or two] in the music business.

'Wake Up' is a radio-friendly pop song. It's got a killer chorus, groovy swagger, lots of singalong backing vocals and it's brimming in confidence. These lads know thay have something great and it oozes throughout the song. - 2 U I Bestow


"Button Factory Review"

The first act of the evening was a very interesting 4 piece called El Hombre Jokes, another band advertising how diverse these Gigsmart Shows can be, combining amazing vocal harmonies from the lads and blends of all sorts of music genres and styles.

They do seem to be a band who have worked out arrangements of their songs to the finest detail, one of the most dynamic bands I have seen in a long time... To go from full band to just acoustic guitar and back again is always something i enjoy in a band!

I'd like to be able too give examples of who I think they sound like, but they really were quite diverse sounding, elements of Gomez, the John Butler Trio, and even at times I thought Rodrigo & Gabriella esque guitar paying at times, blending little bits of country, jazz, funk and blues thrown in creating one of the most eclectic bands I
have ever seen, needless to say I did enjoy the bands set immensely, the drummer, even though he wasn't as lit up as the rest of the band couldn't help but escape my attention, giving a fantastically animated performance!


I can definitely say I would love to see them perform again. They wouldn't normally be my thing exactly, but the blend of the music they were playing, and the catchy little hooks and melodies I couldn't help but sing and hum along
