“Hester and DeJaVooDoo have big plans for 2014. With a strong pedigree of playing some great venues and festivals and sharing the stage with some of the finest in the business, Hester and company have built a strong foundation from which to jump. Starting at The Sundance Film Festival, the band plans on stretching their wings this year including expanding their audience base!”

“Now, I will be writing a review of your show, and you will receive a copy of the review when it is finished. Until then I would like to share with you that I was very impressed by your show. In August I saw BB King and Peter Frampton perform the song "Thrill Is Gone", and you did it better.... just let that sink in a bit.”

“5 star Review for Steve Hester and DeJaVooDoo! Stopped by HOB Friday night, there was a great live blues band playing a free show in the restaurant. Food was good, service was good, but the vibe was excellent! People were up dancing by the stage, everybody was having fun! I hadn't even realized there WAS a restaurant there, much less that it was THE place to be!”

“This was a 5 star review for Steve Hester and DeJaVooDoo! Joey U. 3/4/2013 My wife and I were there on Friday for the Lindsey Stirling show. We sat at the bar and our bartender Krishna was amazing. She was very helpful in selecting our dinner. The meatball sliders and lobster mac n cheese were tasty. There was a cool band playing in the restaurant before the show that was really good as well. We had a great time listening to them and still able to talk. Most places we go the music is way too loud,but not at House of Blues. We rocked out and still could hear ourselves think. Keep up the good local music in the restaurant where we can still hear after leaving and we will be back,with friends next time”
