Dennis Moss is a solo guitarist serving the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Dennis will enhance your special event with timeless jazz and Brazilian standards. He also plays everything from the sophisticated pop of Sting and Seal to the contemporary sounds of Norah Jones and Bill Frisell. Dennis will also entertain requests such as traditional wedding music, etc. Dennis performs regularly at corporate events, weddings, private parties, lounges, wine bars, restaurants and festivals. Dennis has performed in venues such as the Silver Legacy Resort Casino (Reno, NV), McCaw Hall at the Seattle Center, Benson Hotel, Hilton Portland, the Seattle Aquarium, Argosy Cruises, University of Washington, VIRGINIA V Historic Ship and Antioch University. Dennis has had the honor of performing for distinguished clients such as Oregon Senator Rick Metsger, Seattle City Council member Jan Drago and Tacoma Mayorial Candidate Jim Merritt. Besides performing as a solo artist, Dennis also composes, arranges, teaches guitar privately and presents guitar clinics.

Dennis earned a Bachelor of Music (jazz guitar performance) from Cornish College of the Arts. As a Cornish student, he studied with notable jazz artists such as Chuck Deardorf, Dawn Clement, Julian Priester, Jim Knapp and Jovino Santos Neto. Dennis earned multiple talent-based scholarships and graduated Magna Cum Laude.

There are several unique aspects of Dennis' playing that set him apart. A fingerstylist, Dennis has a gorgeous tone and he plays the seven-string guitar. Dennis has a strong harmonic sense and his voicings are unique among guitarists. His ability to take on multiple roles simultaneously (combining melody, harmony and bass lines) truly makes Dennis a one man band. Dennis' playing style is very lyrical and his sound is warm and engaging. His music works great as background ambience and also as a main attraction.

We had Dennis Moss and his trio play at our wedding reception at the Seattle Tennis Club on Saturday. They were wonderful. Very professional and accommodating and the music was fantastic. I would recommend them without hesitation. They brought a real feeling of elegance to the room.

Dennis was absolutely wonderful to work with! He learned our songs beautifully and selected a talented bassist to accompany him. I was thrilled to have beautiful music all day without having to think much about logistics--Dennis was there when we needed him and taking a break when we didn't for the most part without much planning involved :) Thanks for making our wedding really special!
