Tim Pacheco

Tim Pacheco was born on a breezy Thursday morning (20.9 knots) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His grand-parents had emigrated from Spain and no, his parents didn’t teach him to speak Spanish. To make a good impression on girls, he wore bellbottoms, wrote poetry and captured their hearts by serenading them with an old steel string Stella guitar.

Years after the fact, he found out that his older sister had gone to a Doors concert without taking him along and to this day, he has not forgiven her. Use of an electric guitar helped to express similar teenage frustrations.

Good thing Tim’s parents had moved to L.A., otherwise he may have missed the Leo Kottke concert, whose raw acoustic finger-picking changed his life forever. John Fahey inspired him to play straight from his heart and one of Tim’s finest days came when Will Ackerman asked him to perform with him in front of a packed audience at the Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo, CA.

Tim’s greatest reward is when his original, melodic instrumental compositions evoke an emotional connection and his music creates a bond to those who gather to witness him playing the guitar in a way that would make his mama proud.

Instrumental Fingerstyle Acoustic Guitar

"Tim Pacheco is tuned into the acoustic guitar zen center of the universe." - Michael Gulezian, guitarist

The Wine Seller, 601 Embarcadero Suite 5, Morro Bay

I will be playing a 4 song set at this great music listening venue with great wines and some food. I play at 6:50, so get there early to get a seat and catch my set. Show starts at 6:30 PM. See info below for the featured act and other guests & details. Chelsea Williams has played several of our events as a member of The Salty Suites, and now takes a solo turn. Her 2017 album, "Boomerang", gets steady airplay on our public radio station KCBX. Chelsea's made a name for herself as a musician in Los Angeles in a less than traditional way. Without the support of a record label, or radio play, Chelsea managed to sell nearly 100,000 copies of her independently released records the old fashioned way, by playing on the street. Chelsea became the darling of Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade and captured the hearts of locals, tourists and fans from around the world, gaining an impressive following. Among those who have taken note of her talents and frequent her sets include Adam Sandler, Sheryl Crow, LeAnn Rimes, and Ron Howard to name a few. Crosby, Stills, and Nash even sent Chelsea flowers in appreciation of the quality of her cover of "Helplessly, Hoping" they had found on YouTube. More at http://www.chelseawilliams.com/ Special guests include local faves Bob & Wendy, Tim Pacheco, Stereo Chickens, and Nashville's Sally and George.
