Harriet "Hesh" Wasser

"Hesh" & Bobby

Most would agree that without a "Hesh" there would be no "Bobby Darin." Over coffee at Hanson's Drug Store a special chemistry formed and the rest is history. Even before that first 1957 conversation was over "Hesh" had agreed to do Bobby's PR ... and ... without a salary! She just knew he had "IT."

"Hesh" shares her thoughts about Bobby . . .

As a child, Hesh recalled her parents taking her to see live theater and after graduating high school she took an interest in the music business. She has a passion for popular music and jazz.

Over the years she has worked for Columbia and Mercury Record companies, Walt Disney Music and Jazz Artists Management and with many of entertainment's great stars, including Dick Haymes, Steve Lawrence and Eddie Gorme, and Harry Belafonte. Legendary entertainer/songwriter/producer Bob Crewe and Hesh are very good friends.

She became heavily involved with Latin Jazz Music and did publicity for The Blue Note, The Village Gate and the "Highlights in Jazz" concert series at Pace University for over 20 years.

"More than anything I love people. And when I do become involved I don't give up."
