Humberto Gessinger (born Porto Alegre, December 24, 1963) is the singer and bassist of the famous Brazilian band Engenheiros do Hawaii.
In 1985, he formed a rock band with two friends from the faculty of architecture at UFRGS, Carlos Maltz and Marcelo Pitz. The band decided to call themselves Engenheiros do Hawaii, which was a name making fun at the expense of the engineering students of the faculty.
The band released their first disc in 1986. With the departure of Marcelo Pitz in May 1987, Gessinger started playing bass and the band recruited Augusto Licks as lead guitarist. In 2001, with yet another new formation of the band (Paulinho Galvão on guitar, Bernardo Fonseca on bass and Gláucio Ayala on drums) he returned to lead guitar. He is the only original member of the band who is still with the group.
