The Paul Esch Band

Paul Esch performs live acoustic music including a variety of classic acoustic light rock music, blues, guitar instrumentals, favorite cover tunes, contemporary pop music and original songs featuring great vocals and harmonica solos for over 15 years.

He studied guitar with Grammy winning national acoustic guitar finger picking champion Pat Donohue of Prairie Home Companion fame. Paul’s experience includes leading live acoustic music duos, trios and five piece rock bands.

His debut CD “Go Ask the Sky Why” and “Light the Night Concerts for Crime Prevention” were profiled on KARE-11 TV “Finding What Works.” He was also featured on KCFE-FM radio and Joe Soucheray’s Garage Logic radio program.

Paul has performed live guitar music for many corporate parties, country clubs, restaurants, bars, patios, ski resorts and outdoor music venues such as the Lake Harriet Band Shell and Como Lakeside Pavilion.

Paul is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas and member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
