Tonight (8/17/2013) there was a reunion of sorts. That’s when musicians Gabe Valla and Sam Pacetti gave their long-awaited second performance in Gainesville’s Thomas Center.  The two guitar players, who now 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’s Donna Green-Townsend about the uniqueness of the scheduled show:
