Why book Dennis Jones?

Dennis Jones is an Atlanta veteran guitarist/singer and loves his job. I play fun music from the 60's through today's hits. I specialize in wedding receptions, birthday parties, graduation celebrations, neighborhood pool parties, Parrothead parties...etc. You name it, I've played it. My show is always fun and professional. You'll enjoy hits from The Beatles, Paul Simon, Van Morrison, James Taylor, The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Buffett and more. When not on the road as lead guitarist for The Drifters and Cornell Gunter's Coasters, Dennis plays solo acoustic guitar. If you need live music that will have your guests dancing, singing along and having a great time, you need to call Dennis Jones.

Singing Guitarist in Atlanta, GA
Dennis was great to work with. We hired him for our wedding to play during the ceremony. He found a second guitarist to play with him and they learned a new song for my processional. They played it beautifully. He was responsive in communication and generally just made the ceremony music a totally stress-free part of planning! I'm very glad we hired him.

Since February, I have become a regular follower. I love to go and listen to Dennis perform. He draws the audience in and often my friends and I are all singing along! Although, I do eat at the restuarant, I wouldn't go there normally because of the distance. He is so personable and friendly, he seems like we've been friends forever. Wonderful entertainment!

Bio

I have been playing guitar since I saw The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan show. That may be longer than some of you have been alive. Over the years I've played many different styles in many different situations. I really enjoy pickin' my guitar and singing everybody's favorite songs. There is nothing better for me than entertaining an appreciative audience. I have worked with many artists and had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people in the Music Business. I've traveled the "road" with some popular regional acts over the years and I don't regret any of it. I've been in some of the very best bands Atlanta has to offer, including Men In Blues,The Rockerfellas Band and The Alleykatz Band. My long career has allowed me to share the stage in either warm up or showcasing situations with several bands including Janis Joplin, Mothers Finest, Goose Creek Symphony, Peter Rivera and Rare Earth, Maceo Parker, The Chambers Brothers, Dickie Betts, Hydra, The Drifters, The Platters, Arthur Conley, The Atlanta Rhythm Section and many others over the years. Some venues I've played include The Cobb Energy Center, Alexander Memorial Stadium, Westin Peachtree Plaza, The Fox Theater, Chastain Park Amphitheater, Chateau Elan Winery, The Macon Colosseum, Sambuca Jazz Cafe, A Taste of Marietta, Hemingways, One Star Ranch, Monterrey Mexican Restaurant, Steinbeck's, UGA, Georgia Tech, Auburn University, Presbytarian College, Georgia Southern University, Dekalb College, The Electric Eye, Richard's and many, many more. Yes folks, life is good. And the best part is...I'm still playing music and lovin' every minute of it. If I left anything out just call me and we'll talk about it. Whether your event requires a solo performer or a full blown party band, I have it all right here for you. Thank you for visiting my website.

Testimonials

Dennis,
Thanks for your performance at my daughter's wedding reception yesterday. As you could probably tell, the guests in attendance spanned a wide variety of backgrounds and there were family members and friends meeting each other for the first time. Your music helped paint and maintain the mood and fill-in any awkward times.

Thanks again,

Marc Turner

P.S. I will be visiting one of your public venues soon, so I can enjoy your music when I'm not Frazzled.

– Marc Turner

Dennis, I just wanted to thank you for coming up today to entertain our guests. We really had a great time, and your music was exactly what we wanted. We were very pleased. I really do appreciate you making such a long trip up here to Armuchee. I know it wasn’t exactly close by and you had to drive a greater distance than expected, but we really enjoyed having you here. We will gladly give our recommendation to anyone who should ask about your quality of work. Excellent!

Thanks Again,

– Jan Morris

Dennis,
Thanks for the wonderful evening of entertainment at
the Cinco De Mayo festival at our clubhouse last night. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music and your ability to do different styles. You were very professional and
courteous. I knew you were the right choice when I looked over your songlist. I love every song you played. We would love to use you again and would recommend you to anyone.
Thank you.

Dennis does a great job in our restaurant. We have had him play several times already and he has become one of our favorite performers. The regulars love his music and humor and he really is quite an entertainer. He enjoys what he does and it shows. I just can't say enough good things about Dennis. He is a fine guitar player and singer.

– Steinbeck's - Oakhurst

Dennis played at our Holiday party this year and what a hit he was with our guests. He is very professional, talented, and fun too - couldn't ask for better entertainment. One of our guests said "I so enjoy your party every year but adding the live music this time was fantastic". And he plays at just the right volume for your atmosphere - our guests were able to enjoy him and still carry on a conversation!!!

– Heather McNally

You were "FANTASTIC". We had several compliments on your performance tonight. Everyone enjoyed the music. We hope you will come back and play soon.....The Staff

Hi Dennis! We had a great time!! Mary and her friends always have a great time... (They are Mary and The Wallettes if you would like to go on tour with them). We all loved the entertainment!!!! You were fantastic!!! We will definitely be using you again! Thanks Dennis!

Thank You, Sandra and Patrick Walls

Hi Dennis. You were awsome at my neighborhood Christmas party. Everybody kept telling me how impressed they were that I had "live" entertainment in my house for the party. I just wanted to let you know what a great time we all had because you kept the house hoppin' and were the hit of the party. Thanks again and we can't wait to book you for our pool, party (luau) next summer.

I really appreciate what you do in the lounge at The Highland Inn. We will continue to book you because we get numerous positive comments about you from our guests. You are easy to work with and you just seem to know what to play and when to play it. Not to mention your sense of humor and quick wit. We always look forward to your return to The Inn because we know it will be a fun show. And the crowd loves it too. We will see you again very soon.
