Paulo Franco is a Richmond, Virginia based singer/ songwriter. In terms of recording, it may seem that Franco has come to the game later in life than some, but his musical journey has been a lifelong story. Born to Colombian immigrants and raised in Washington D.C., Paulo embraces his heritage as a first generation American and his songs and style reflect that.

He has recently included original Spanish songs into his songwriting, bringing a depth and a love of two cultures seldom seen during the same show or album.  Paulo switches his voice from country twang, to rock anthem, to Spanish troubadour with ease.  His vocals are so authentically Spanish that it’s easy to forget you just heard him effortlessly sing a country tune in English.

The following measures are in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all of our guests, as well as our staff:

*Dancing is allowed 'at your own table/space with your own guests'.  There will NOT be an open dance floor.
