If you're looking to hire a jazz/pop guitarist for your event or party, then look no further! Dennis Moss is a solo guitarist serving Seattle, Portland and beyond. Dennis has over 20 years of experience and a Bachelor of Music from Cornish College of the Arts. He performs regularly at corporate events, weddings, private parties, lounges, wine bars, restaurants and festivals. Dennis has performed at 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, Tacoma Mayorial Candidate Jim Merritt, Intel and Hewlett-Packard. Dennis' music has been described as "upbeat, seductive and relaxing" and clients can expect quality, memorable experiences. Dennis primarily plays timeless jazz and Brazilian bossa nova/samba. He also plays some pop and adult contemporary favorites by artists such as The Beatles, Sting and Seal. For weddings, Dennis can play traditional wedding music or learn requests from other genres. Besides performing as a solo artist, Dennis also composes, arranges, teaches guitar privately and presents jazz 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 and Jovino Santos Neto. Dennis earned multiple talent-based scholarships and graduated Magna Cum Laude.

There are several unique aspects of Dennis' playing that sets him apart. A fingerstylist, Dennis has a gorgeous tone and he plays the seven-string guitar. He has a strong harmonic sense and his voicings are unique among guitarists. His ability to take on more than one role simultaneously (combining melodies, harmony and bass lines) makes Dennis a perfect fit for solo performances. Dennis' playing style is very lyrical and his sound is warm and engaging. Dennis' music works great as background ambience for events and also as a main attraction.

Dennis arrived on time, with a smile on his face, despite the nasty, rainy weather! His music added that extra special touch for my husband's 40th bday party and helped to create a warm, inviting party atmosphere for our guests. I highly recommend Dennis and hope to work with him again in the future.
