Artist profile---Music News--NYC 2020
Ricky Vacca is from New York. A heavy Brooklyn accent would have any Beatle enthusiast question his Liverpudlian validity. But Vacca's uncanny resemblance to Sir Paul, including a left-handed prowess on bass guitar, easily removes all doubt.

That is until recently when hanging up the mop top. Years on the road portraying another artist left Vacca artistically starved. After all, fans came to see the fab four, not an aspiring singer/songwriter.

Although fluent on bass, harmonica and piano, Vacca depends heavily on his 1990 Yamaha acoustic guitar and a beautiful sounding Epiphone Texan.
In addition to Beatlemania, Vacca also spent time as a New York City session player. Although in love with the laidback lifestyle of the Lehigh Valley Mountains, he admits to missing the energy associated with the rock and roll of yesteryear. Vacca hopes to remedy the situation by securing regular gigs in the immediate area, concentrating more on his own compositions as opposed to cover songs.
