San Antonio's premier acoustic band has something for "er-body". We can book as a duo but generally we are a 3 piece acoustic group and play everything from Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles to Foo Fighters and Sublime. We are a professional working band that plays all around San Antonio and the surrounding area. We excel at crowd interaction - and helping everyone have a good time.
Price Range: $150 and up
Gig Length: 60 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
Acquiesce excels at "reading the room". We can change our set (song list) at a moments notice to satisfy all generations. We can interact with the audience as much or as little as you wish. We are a professional, tight ensemble and give an excellent performance every time. We gig regularly so we encourage you to come out and listen to us live and decide for yourself.
We aren't new to wedding performances and are open to adding a special song or two for your big day. You are welcome to utilize our microphones for special announcements, etc. or we'd be happy to make those announcements for you. We are there to make your special day even better!
Lynda Schrack – Vocals/rhythm guitar
Lynda has been singing since she could open her mouth. Her family hoped she’d outgrown it but sadly that never happened. Her musical accomplishments include beating out Connie Thomas for the lead in the 9th grade musical performance of the theme from Flashdance. She later went on to win the Lisle and Hahn 99.5 KISS Radio Big Bend Over and Back song writing competition where she met many unscrupulous musicians that she’s still pals with today.
Lynda is the former front man (woman) for the rock band Mercydate, and founding member of Acquiesce. She is madly in love with the chill laid back vibe of this band and marvels at how easily and organically they all work together. “It just keeps getting better”.
Tom Saliceti – Lead Guitar, Vocals
From the early age of twelve, singing in local garage bands and from the moment he first strummed a guitar; music has been life's momentum behind Tom. Holding the role of lead guitarist and vocalist for a number of different bands over the years while he supported his family, he was never too tired to pick up his Les Paul or Stratocaster.
Tom and Lynda met while traveling in the same musical circles. He reluctantly made the jump to Acquiesce after much begging and pleading from Lynda. Playing acoustic guitar was a new world for him and he wasn’t sure he wanted to move in that direction but quickly adjusted in finding new ways to express tone much to his liking. His talents crossed over nicely and the sound came together quickly. Without a full band behind him he had to find new ways to fill out the depth of the rhythm while still keeping the integrity of the songs. Tom’s musical style has helped add a new layer of dynamics to the band that elevates our overall sound.
Scott MacWilliams – Percussion
In 2006 Scott relocated from California to San Antonio. Not only did we gain an experienced drummer we picked up a new SPURS fan as well. As he integrated into the SA music scene he crossed paths with Lynda when he joined her band Mercydate and later with Tom, when he became a part of his band Scratch. It would take a few years but eventually these three would join together to become Acquiesce.
While drums have always been Scott’s first love the cajon is quickly gaining ground. A new instrument for him, the cajon has proven to be a bit of a challenge as it’s quite different from playing a full set of drums. As the percussionist he has to find new ways to fill out the sound and compliment the band.
Scott is enjoying the freedom to use his cajon to do any style or genre of music Acquiesce tackles. “Whether its rock, R & B, country, or whatever – we just do our own acoustic interpretation of the songs and make them our own”.
