About 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.

Great Performance!

By Adrienne W. on September 8, 2015

Dennis did a great job. He is professional. He is talented and he is a good entertainer. It was nice to have him spice up our event with great music and singing.

Response from Dennis Jones:

Thank you for the kind words Adrienne. You all were GREAT! Dancing and singing along, and the dinner was "OH MY"!!! So glad you hired me for this event. Let's just do it again!

Talented, great to work with.

By Natalie B. on January 11, 2012

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!

My husband & I have seen Dennis at least 10 times around Atlanta, always get up and dance and always have a blast. He blows the guitar away, plays what we love to hear and just gets everyone into it since he's so much fun up there. Ya know, the guy just loves what he does!!

I've followed Dennis for years. He's a fabulous entertainer, who never disappoints. His music is universal. I'm happy he now plays every Saturday near my home, but I'd travel near and far to hear him!

I started playing guitar early. I've been in some of the very best bands Atlanta has to offer and had the pleasure of working with several national acts along the way. I've been on stage with several bands including Janis Joplin, The Platters, The Atlanta Rhythm Section. Still today I am the lead guitarist for The Drifters and The Coasters. 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 and Sambuca Jazz Cafe.
