Welcome to my web site.  I hope you enjoy what you see and you are pleased with what you hear.  I'm an acoustic guitarist, (although I have been in various electric blues bands over the years), a blues player and folk singer, a finger picker, a strummer, who grew up on Bob Dylan's early music, on blues, and on folk music.

 

I'm available for bookings at bars, restaurants, private parties, and festivals.  I adhere to professionalism when performing.  Like servers and bartenders, I deliver my best to your customers when I perform.  I play acoustic Americana music--blues, folk, country, rock, and originals--with my interpretation and from the heart.  With the Bose sound system I use, my volume level and tone is always tastefully set for all environments and venues.  For bookings contact me at pagosajack@yahoo.com or call me at 970-731-2307 for available dates.  I have CDs for sale.  My second CD, TOOLS OF MY FATHERS, is available for purchase, as well as my third,  AFTER THE RAIN.  My latest CD, THESE OLD MOUNTAINS is finally out after working on it bits and pieces starting in 2016 and finishing at the turn of 2018.    A bunch of fine local musicians sat in on different tunes.  T'was fun working with them.  Click the icon above for further information.
