Aaron Abeyta (born August 8, 1965), better known as El Hefe or simply Hefe, from el Jefe (Spanish for "the boss") is the lead guitarist, trumpet player, and occasional vocalist for the California punk band NOFX.[1]

Abeyta was given his moniker by his fellow band members for his superior mastery of the instruments he plays, and because at the time he joined the band there were already two "Erics", and that an "Aaron" would just be too much. Known for his self-effacing sense of humor, charisma, and many voice impersonations (Beavis and Butthead, Yogi Bear, and other well-known cartoon characters), El Hefe joined NOFX in 1991. His first recordings with NOFX contributed to NOFX's EP, The Longest Line. He once owned a night club called 'Hefe's' in Eureka, CA. He lives in Santa Clarita, California. He has one child and is married to Jennifer Abeyta.

Contrary to a popular myth among NOFX fans, Abeyta did not play Miguel Aguilar in the movie The Bad News Bears and its sequels in the 1970s (that actor's name is George Gonzales), nor in the CBS television series.
