Gabe Valla and Sam Pacetti

Musicians Gabe Valla and Sam Pacetti will give their long-awaited second performance at Gainesville’s Thomas Center on Saturday at 6:30.

The two guitar players, who both live in the St. Augustine area, first met as teenagers at a memorial service for the late Gamble Rogers, who is now honored in the Florida Artists Hall of Fame. Valla, who grew up in Gainesville around the acoustic music scene, talked with WUFT about the uniqueness of Saturday night’s show.

The concert is being sponsored by the Shakerag Culture Center and the City of Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs.
