Paco will be playing originals which reflect his roots in blues, folk and country. The show will also include a few blues standards from the pioneers of the genre.
Considering that his Father met his Mother by joining her band, it’s no surprise that live music was part of his everyday life from the cradle forward. Being exposed to every genre from an early age, his shows can reflect that diversity, but he always seems most at home playing the blues. He started out playing Hawaiian style, with a slack tuned acoustic on his lap and playing with a bar, then onto acoustic and finally electric guitar. He has always performed as a solo, and over the years has formed various bands as well as stints as the guitarist in touring bands. He has performed throughout the upper Midwest as well as Memphis, New Orleans and throughout Florida.
Paco’s style is difficult to categorize and uniquely his own. The most recurrent comment you’ll hear from guitar players in the audience is – he plays chops that you don’t hear from anybody else. His vocals have an ease and sincerity which makes him relatable to practically every audience. He is currently the lead guitarist with “Little Mike and the Tornadoes” as well as the blues duo “Crosseyed Cat”, and solo shows are always part of the annual calendar.
This concert is brought to you by the City of Gainesville in partnership with MusicGNV, a program of Self Narrate, Inc.
