Aguanga resident, aspiring pilot, creative songwriter, expressive and talented performer and musician Tim Walsh is a gem hidden away, coming out to play as often as humanly possible. Known for his rich vocals and rock solid guitar work, he is a very interesting guy.

Walsh and his family moved to Murrieta in 1976. The aspiring young guitarist traveled to Florida to ply his trade, playing gigs wherever he could. 

Meanwhile, back in California, his sister Brigid became the publicist for budding comedic genius, actor, musician, and television and film producer Andy Dick. Introductions were made, and Walsh and Dick teamed up with Andrew Sherman to create the group "Andy Dick and The Bitches of the Century." They toured together for about eight years, offering their often risqué tunes live and on albums.

 Years later Walsh found himself back in Murrieta. But that did not slow his momentum. He wrote scores for The Andy Dick Show, played gigs at casinos and exclusive venues such as The Mint, The Viper Room, The Comedy Store and The Laugh Factory. Walsh and Dick were featured on several television shows, including "Howard Stern," "The View," "The Sharon Osbourne Show" and Jimmy Kimmel." Walsh created tunes for TV commercials and more.

Walsh is a quiet soul, thoughtful and calculated. When he plays the guitar and sings, the listener is aware of nothing else. He has a commanding presence that makes you want to hear every word.

He also has a talent for sounding exactly like John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival.


Comfortable in simple surroundings as well as on the TV screen, Tim Walsh always sounds great.

One reviewer wrote, "Lead singer and guitarist Tim Walsh recreates Fogerty"s vocals in an uncanny way."

"[He] channels Fogerty's style and energy perfectly, and with the help of fellow band members Joel Miller, Rob Plafcin and Dennis Kane, presented a show that is well worth the ticket price."

Walsh plays the winery, restaurant and casino circuit as the Tim Walsh Band, shining as part of the classic rock scene. He also pops into open jam sessions when his schedule allows, much to the delight of his fellow musicians.

When not playing or traveling the world, Walsh enjoys his quiet home in Aguanga. To get a sample of his music, check out his schedule at
