- Client Comments

"Music makes or breaks events. Your guests will remember your entertainment long after the food and decor are forgotten.  You won't find any better solo act than David Payton.  He is the real deal!"
- Matthew Cutillo, GigMasters #1 Artist for the last six years.

David Payton is the #1 Singer, Guitarist, One-Man Band in the Southeast, Top 3 in the country! If you are planning an event, and want more than just 'a guy and a guitar' but a band is too big, too loud, too expensive & too much hassle, David Payton is your solution! He brings the sound of a full band, but for only the smaller budget, logistical/space requirements of a quality solo artist, and he can play as loud (or as soft) as YOU want!

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, and the Masters Golf Tournament, played fund raisers for Wounded Warriors, entertained for multi-night runs at MGM Grand Resorts and Casino and MANY others.

David has pleased clients for hundreds of weddings, parties, corporate events and concerts. He has delighted audiences from the North Carolina Coast to the Mississippi River Casinos, from Nashville's Opryland to Florida's Palm Beach social elite. But he is just as happy to play for a few dozen people at a neighborhood holiday party or a backyard barbecue.

Audiences of all ages love David. He excels at most every style: Rock, Country, Blues, Pop, Classic Rock and Motown - Acoustic and Electric. He has a huge repertoire and can provide simple, beautiful, relaxing dinner/cocktail music, fill the dance floor with classic party hits, and DJ thumping modern grooves with his premium Bose sound system and elevated lights.

David Payton has decades of full time musical 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 artists, and played for numerous State Governors and Ambassadors.

We challenge you to find a solo performer, or even a band, who can provide a better entertainment experience for even double David's fee range. You won't. We guarantee it!
