Elegant Acoustic was John Wilson's solo guitar project, but when he and Joley finally began playing together after circling each other's gigs for years, he let her adopt the name with him.
Joley settled into the "pretty music" genre from a rock and classical background, John from Christian worship and punk beginnings. Together we present inspiring, soothing music to melt away the noise of life. We bring a sweet vibe of relaxation. :) Original music can be found on the web site.
Elegant Acoustic played so many gigs before joining Gigmasters, we want to share some of those reviews and general categories of happy fans and clients:
*wedding rehearsal dinners: lilting you gently through an elegant evening
*conventions, political galas, corporate functions: "wallpaper" backdrop of calming songs you hadn't thought of in a long time
*art galleries: gentle vibrations of instrumental & world music wafting through the halls, enhancing your experience
*private parties: hotels to back yards, comforting and energizing guests
*worshipful wedding ceremonies of faith, packaged with a rockin' dance band for the reception
*REQUEST HOUR -- Joley's favorite! We customize this part of the playlist. Shout out what you want, and sing along with us!
"Joley and John have entertained many of our friends, family, and business clients at parties and dinners we have hosted at home. I cannot say enough about the quality of their music. They combine voice, with piano, flute, and guitar, and can pull off the most beautiful Brazilian Jazz songs, to the most classic Christmas carols. They offer a variety of types and styles of music. We have enjoyed their music at several local Austin restaurants... They bring their own equipment, socialize with the guests, and truly add a festive element to any gathering. They truly make the event very easy on the host.
I would highly recommend them for your next party or gathering. They are always at the top of my list. They will work with you on the type of music or even songs you would like to hear. Once again, I would completely trust them to entertain at any type of party whether it is a pool party, hoe-down, or black-tie dinner.
Be sure to check out their CDs. They are fabulous!"

"My husband, Mark, and I first met Joley and John in 2004 when they were playing in a restaurant. We stayed for several hours just to listen and to talk with them and even danced where there was no dance floor. Joley has perfected three beautiful instruments – piano, flute, and her voice. John makes the guitar sing! The songs I enjoyed the most turned out to be Joley's original songs! I hosted a 50th birthday party for Mark a few months later and knew the only entertainment choice for the party was Joley and John. I did not tell Mark they were coming and the look on his face when Joley walked in was priceless. The birthday boy was thrilled. They performed outside on our deck where our guests danced and sang along and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Everyone asked where we found them...
Friends hosted another party the following year. We had originally declined because we would be out of town until we heard Joley and John would be there. We spent 8 hours in the car that day to make it back in time for the party! We left that night with Joley's newest CD. I had to leave her a message when we arrived home asking why we haven't seen her at the Grammy's yet. I fully expect to see her there soon and for once the show will be worth watching!"

No one does what we do. Fans love our respective solo repertoires, but they beg us to play together 'cos that's the magic recipe to relax.
A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
