Hey you! Take a little moment to get to know WUD Music Campus Outreach Assistant Director Gabriel Herrera/ El Guapo/ @gabrielherrera. So get ready to uncover the mystery. Meet the man behind the legend.
Engrish. I’m currently regretting not double majoring in com arts too
What are you currently listening to?
Aeroplane mix charts
The Isley Brothers
Has your cultural heritage shaped your attitudes towards music?
Undoubtedly. Why do you think I have such a good sense of rhythm?
If you could trade places with one person in the music industry, who
would it be?
Matt Forrest. That man has everything I could ever want, and more.
Favorite live show:
Ever?! Yes, ever. I don’t know, here are a few memorable ones:
Grizzly Bear at the Pabst in MKE, Alan Braxe at the Smart Bar in
Chicago, Flogging Molly at Lollapalooza, and Public Enemy at P4K a few
years back. In Madison, It would be either The Black Lips, Cool Kids,
or Dan Deacon at the Majestic.
Favorite music news source (blog/magazine/etc):
I don’t really follow any one music source consistently because I have
the attention span of a small child. Something that I have been doing
recently is finding websites that host disco/funk/r&b albums on
rapidshare and downloading them all and then never listening to them;
Favorite music committee memory:
There are several, and they each have different names.
Top 5 most played songs on iTunes:

Two truths and a lie:
I have shot a gun before.
I used to work in the basement of Memorial Union making sandwiches.
I comb my hair when I wake up in the morning.
