You're planning an event, want more than just 'a guy and a guitar' but a BAND is too big, too loud, too expensive and way too much hassle. David Payton is your solution! He brings the sound of a full band, but for the budget, logistical and space requirements of a top quality solo artist. He can play as loud (or as soft) as YOU want!

Planning a WEDDING? David can do it ALL... Prelude, Ceremony, Postlude, Cocktail/Dinner Hour and the whole Reception! David can play acoustic/classical (or any special requests) for the Ceremony/Dinner Hour and then rock the Reception dance floor with over 3,000 watts of top-of-the-line Digital PA and DJ-style dance floor lights. For your Reception, David will sing and play live and, if you want, he will gladly DJ the last portion with classic party songs and today's dance hits for modern dance music fans. Think of the money and hassle you'll save just dealing with ONE PERSON for all your wedding and reception music needs!
Bottom line: Book David Payton and ALL your Wedding AND Reception Music worries are over!

David understands that success in the entertainment business requires more than just talent. It requires hard work, being responsible and being prepared. He will do all he can to meet (and exceed) his clients needs, & make their event a pleasant and unforgettable experience for everyone.

David has done his one-man performances for a wide range of events. He has performed for Condoleeza Rice and 25,000 others at the Georgia World Congress Center, entertained for corporate events for Sprint, Kyocera, Samsung, FedEx, the Masters Golf Tournament and many more. David has also played fund raisers for Wounded Warriors among others, and has been featured in multi-week runs at MGM Grand and the Golden Nugget Resorts and Casinos.

Since joining GigMasters in 2010, David has pleased clients for hundreds of weddings, parties, corporate events, festivals, opened and headlined concerts... He has delighted clients and audiences from the North Carolina Coast to the Mississippi River, from Nashville's Opryland to Florida's Palm Beach social elite. He has played for over 60,000 people, but he is just as comfortable playing for a few dozen people at a neighborhood party or a backyard barbecue.

Audiences of all ages love David. He excels at most every style: Rock, Country, Blues, Pop, Classic Rock, Motown, Acoustic and Electric. He has a huge repertoire of songs everybody knows and loves. He has an ability to read the crowd and play appropriate music that comes only with decades of performing experience. He has played both as a solo artist and with Grammy Award winning bands all over the US, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Italy and Israel. He has shared the stage with many well known national music artists, and played for numerous State Governors and Ambassadors.

Any popular style you want, David delivers with energy, personality & FUN! His huge song list is always growing. Whether it's Jack Johnson, James Taylor, Eric Clapton, Johnny Cash, John Mayer, Zac Brown, Jason Aldean, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Temptations, Earth Wind & Fire, Van Morrison... David plays Rock, Blues, Country, Classic Motown & everything in between with a talent and professionalism that will please you and ALL your guests!

David Payton is an amazing performer! If you watch/listen to him online, please know it does not signify how talented he really is. He is a must see and hear in person. In addition to his musical gift, he is polite, funny, completely agreeable and accommodating. My guests were all wowed by him as were we. I would highly recommend him to anyone for any type of engagement as I am 110% positive you will not be disappointed. David, you were incredible! Thank you again from all of us for making our daughters graduation party so much fun and the party of the year. It was a success ~ one that will be talked about for years to come!

I am a perfectionist with very high expectations - and David exceeded them all !! He arrived in plenty of time to set up before our event and was very professional. He didn't have any crazy demands or any demands for that matter. He is a very talented musician with a great voice. He interacted with our group, let some of our employees come up and sing with him and even joined our group on the dance floor. No doubt we will be using his services again. HE IS AMAZING AND LOTS OF FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!! Belinda Ross Moore Stephens Tiller, LLC

David was everything we hoped for; a very talented musician, easy to work with in preparation for the wedding, professional, accommodated our needs, was very personable with our guests and interacted with them throughout his time with us. Everyone loved him, as did my husband and myself! We would definitely use David in the future and were asked by several of our guest how they can contact him for future events. Thank you David! You made our day very special! Kathy and Don
