About
Enhance your event or party with some tasteful guitar music! Dennis Moss is a solo guitarist with over 20 years of experience and a Bachelor of Music from Cornish College of the Arts. Dennis serves Seattle, Portland and beyond. He 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, Tacoma Mayorial Candidate Jim Merritt and Hewlett-Packard. Dennis plays jazz, Brazilian bossa nova/samba, blues, acoustic and pop (Beatles, Sting, etc.). Dennis will also play traditional wedding music or learn requests from any genre. Besides performing as a solo artist, Dennis also composes, arranges, teaches guitar privately and presents guitar clinics.

Dennis earned a Bachelor of Music from Cornish College of the Arts. As a Cornish student, Dennis 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 set 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 combine melodies, chords and bass lines makes Dennis a true one man band. His playing style is very lyrical and his sound is warm and engaging. Dennis' music works great as background ambience and also as a main attraction.

We were so happy to have dennis play at our wedding ceremony and reception. We received several great comments from guest about the music at our wedding. He definitely created the perfect mood for our reception. Dennis was a pleasure to hire and work with. He never left me in the dark about details. He was very professional and proactive about questions regarding the wedding details.

Dennis did a fabulous job at our event and was so kind to bring equipment that our venue would have charged us for, and to allow us to use the equipment during his break and after his performance for remarks and presentations. He was very professional and his music is lovely! I highly recommend him!

We hired the Dennis Moss Trio for a Real Estate Broker Event held in the penthouse at the Atwater Place Condo Tower in Portland. They were nicely dressed in suits and gave us an amazing performance! We received numerous compliments on the music and how they played at the perfect level/volume for the setting! They were so easy to work with and very professional. Their flawless entertainment is what set the tone for the party and will definitely book them for future events!

The DM Duo pulled off a great gig on our wedding day. We didn't have to give them a playlist or any other specific instructions, just let them play. Their set really went great with every moment of the occasion and everybody loved it. Thanks again!!! You guy's rocked the boat!

He and his bass player whose name I don't have handy were wonderful. Everyone enjoyed them. There was a guest who had played jazz saxophone professionally and he thought they were great. They let him play with the bass player at the end which was wonderful. It was a great night.
