Jotta Herre was a Portugues band, formed by Jaime João, Anibal Cunha, Carlos Pinto and the teclista Rui Pereira who animated the nights of the hotel The Penina, in the Algarve region in Portugal.

shortly after midnight, they met with Paul McCartney at the hotel reception. The Beatle was staying in the area, at Hunter Davies’ house, and went to The Penina, with Linda Eastman,future woman, to exchange pounds for shields. After a first conversation they went to the bar where McCartney accompanied the group, to drums or to the piano, and offered them, already around 4 a.m., the song “Penina”.
