From initial contact to the day of my event, Ace was a true professional. He communicated in a timely manner, put me at ease navigating Gigsalad for the first time, and asked all the right questions to make sure he understood what I was after for the event. During the day of the event, he provided a chill and relaxing performance for my kid and family friendly picnic at the Jacksonville Zoo - Ace hit the mark! His music talent is amazing, his music selection and performance were flawless, and he is a genuine and personable guy, making him a true standout for the event. Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a professional musical talent and will definitely hire him again for future events. Thanks again Ace!
The Music and professionalism was Fantastic! It was the first time we used his services and he was beyond awesome and flowed perfectly with the event.

Firstly, Ace was very quick to respond to my request and very professional.
He created the perfect atmosphere for our beach side party. Everyone greatly enjoyed his music and his sound from Eagles to Marley to Sheeran. I would highly recommend him for any event. He is delightful and made our event perfect.
Response from Ace Winn:
Thank you Nikki,
Nikki's friends and family were a delight to entertain.
Professional, friendly, skilled, accommodates our schedule with last than optimal information about where he would be playing. Thanks Ace, we'll
be requesting your services again.
After reading Ace's numerous stellar reviews and watching his many You Tube videos, we immediately knew that he was our choice for musical entertainment at our son's Bar Mitzvah. What beautiful and harmonious singing and guitar playing! Ace delivered exactly what we were looking for. He was just perfect! Not only is Ace a tremendous talent, but also a true gentleman. We highly recommend Ace for any venue or event, as he is more than accommodating in custom-tailoring to the client's specific needs. Thanks again Ace!!
We needed a musician to play nice background music for an open house at our new events venue. Ace not only provided lovely music, but he represented us in a professional way. It was a joy working with him. He is personable, talented and reliable. Next time, we need to have him in more of a center-stage role. His musical skills are outstanding. Background music is not what he should be playing!
Ace is awesome! We were breaking down and had no alcohol left and people still hung around to listen to him and his music. He is a great performer and would add value to any event!
Ace performed 2 special surprise songs at my wedding for my new wife. He was amazing! Very professional. He showed up an hour and half early to make sure everything was perfect. His performance was fantastic. He was very friendly and easy to work with. We would recommend him to everyone and use him again in a heartbeat.
Ace did a fantastic job with keeping the music going throughout our event. Our guests really enjoyed his performance as we received many compliments on him throughout our evening. I'd highly recommend him for your event.
Ace did a great job for our event from start to finish. He was prompt in responding to my initial request, followed up with me before the event to finalize the details, showed up on time, performed beautifully for the entire event, cleaned up the area where they performed, and followed up after the event. Very professional & a joy to work with! I will definitely be using Ace again for future events!
I hired Ace to perform at my 60th Birthday party. I wanted it to be something all my friends would remember, a really special party and Ace made it happen!
He played for a couple of hours and my guests were very impressed. Several of my friends asked, "Why isn't this guy famous?" Well, he's pretty special to me and my wife, and if you need to hire a musician you cannot do better than Ace.
Ace did a GREAT job! He is a 10! He is very professional and was on time and did a GREAT job! Everyone was impressed and really enjoyed his music! Can't wait to book him again!! If you are thinking of booking him, DO IT!!!
The show was absolutely amazing! The songs he covered were amazing and his original songs were even better.
Ace Winn was a wonderful performer! Our community had nothing but wonderful things to say about him and lots of requests to have him back! Very easy to communicate with, prompt to the performance, definitely worth having again!!
Ace Winn has the ability to connect with any audience. Whether he is performing an Ace-ified version of a classic tune or one of his heartfelt originals, both his smooth vocals and obviously innate talent on guitar pull the listener into his world. It's a journey no one protests being taken on, however unexpected. And when it ends, they are all the better for having come along. I highly recommend Ace Winn for any event!
We LOVE having Ace perform for our community at our events. He's VERY professional and so talented. We always hear great compliments from our residents and their guests after he performs.
Ace did a fantastic job at our event, playing a good variety of songs and providing a great atmosphere for people to mingle. Everyone commented on what an awesome performance he gave. We would definitely use him again!
Ace has played for us for many years, he is professional and enjoyable. Our members love him and he is asked back and sought after every season.
He keeps up to date on all the current trends and the older ones to. But we like that he has his own music that he sings too.
We've hired a number of different musicians for our parties, and there's nothing quite like Ace's performance. His Reggae style covers of songs we all know and love were different and original, yet familiar. He kept everyone at the party listening and singing along the whole night. He was prompt, professional, and communicated well. Thanks Ace! We'll definitely hire again in the future.

"Drifting, ascending guitar figures formed from the elemental tones of wood and wire that sing out acoustic music" is how North Florida's FOLIO Magazine describes the unique sounds of Ace Winn. Creating acoustic music for as long as he can remember, Ace made his solo debut more than fifteen years ago. Since then, loyal fans have been enjoying his captivating performances in coffeehouses and clubs throughout Florida. In the early 90s, before performing solo, Ace was front man for the psychedelic funk rock band, Piewackit. Deciding to move in a different direction, he opted for the alternative - thoughtful lyrics over the unbelievably full sound of his acoustic guitar. Influenced by such performers as Sting, Bill Withers and Cat Stevens, Ace's inspired, original compositions call upon virtually every genre of music, including rock, folk, reggae, gospel, jazz and funk.
The Florida Times Union wrote, "The basics. An acoustic guitar, naked lyrics and a voice that climbs the scales in magnificent style, nothing shy about it, stretching syllables out as if each word is being torn from him". The songs speak of everyday life; experiences of a musician raised in a southern town.”
Winn’s superb songwriting skills are clearly evident in his music. He was featured on a 1993 album of local acoustic musicians titled "The Kitchen Sessions" and a similar follow-up album titled "Mystery Date" which was released in November 1995. His own acoustic albums titled "25 years and a Day", "Half Way There" and "Music For The Soul" were released and immediately sold out. In 1997, while working on his unfinished album, "Masterpiece", Ace was approached by the international Reggae band, Christafari. After an extensive national tour with the band during the 1997-98 season, Ace returned to Florida to continue his solo career, even though he occasionally performed with the group and provided lyrics for several albums including "Word, Sound and Power" (Lion of Zion/Diamante).
Ace has shared the stage with names like Green Day, Kirk Franklin, 247 Spyz, Living Colour, Newsboys and Follow For Now. He has performed at major benefits for the Aslan House, Ronald McDonald House, and has played for frequent Florida Poet Society events.

A wonderful world
Somewhere over the rainbow
Thinking out loud
Live like we were dying
Falling to pieces
For the first time
Change the world
I cant help myself
Somebody that I use to know
I'm on fire
My hearts on fire
Count on Me
Drops of Jupiter
You and I booth
Land down under
Blue for you
I’m a believer
Holding back the tears
I can’t help
Every time you go away
Shot the monkey
On and on
Waiting in vain
Woman no cry
Waiting on the world to change
Sonny came home
Every little thing she does is magic
Wrapped around your finger
Fields of gold
Englishman in NewYork
The rainbow song
Some guys have all the luck
Hey hey my my
Still my kisses
Underneath it all
What I like about you
Say what you need to say
The blowers’ daughter
Every time you go away
Waiting on the world to change
Baby I love your ways
