GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The greater Gainesville music community is coming together to benefit one of their own, guitarist Paco, and his lovely wife, Vicki Bordeaux, on Sunday, January 21, 2024, from 3:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. at Heartwood Soundstage, 619 S Main St, Gainesville, FL 32601. This is a FREE event. The fundraiser supports Paco, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer on the day after Thanksgiving, and his wife, Vicki, who is caring for him at home.

The schedule is:

  • 3:30-4:00 – Kyle Keller
  • 4:15-4:45 – Boulware Bluegrass
  • 5:00-5:40 – Little Mike & The Tornadoes

All times are approximate, and scheduling changes may occur without notice. Anyone wishing to speak about Paco at the event will have an opportunity between sets.

A GoFundMe account as well as other ways have been established to receive donations. Visit the event Facebook page at https://fb.me/e/3VvwtZCuQ for more details.
