George is excited to be entering the music scene in Asheville, NC. We are updating his gig schedule so Y'all can come out and welcome him to the Asheville live music scene. He will be playing some familiar combinations and some new ones as this year unfolds. Jay Drummonds is always a special music night and George has a number of gigs with Jay in the Sapphire/Cashiers area this summer. George is just beginning to explore the Asheville music scene and beginning to meet great musicians. The level and diversity of talent in Asheville is off the charts. George is looking forward to connecting, learning and being challenged by these great talents. You might also find him spontaneously at an open mic in Asheville playing his original tunes. And you can find him most Sunday afternoons at The Guitar Bar in the RAD. Watch for updates and gig dates.

George Reeves is a guitarist, singer and songwriter. With 60 + years playing under his belt his playing has been described by other musicians as tasty and the perfect fit. Whether he is playing his electrified solo gig, a singer/songwriter gig or as he is best known serving as lead guitarist, George's performance is always memorable. He has been billed as "guitarist extraordinaire" and it is fitting. He likes to say that he is just sprinkling sugar on the music.
As a singer/songwriter you will be intrigued by the thoughtfulness of his words as well as the music. His songs range from quirky and clever to thought provoking and moving. He has been recognized by the NSAI/CMT songwriters contest for several of his songs. His song The One was one of the sixth finalist out of 6000 entries.
The music always flows through him and consequently through his guitar and you are very aware of that as you listen to and watch this seasoned performer. George allows his guitar to speak for him and most importantly to you. He understands the delicate nuance of not playing too many notes and allowing you to feel the music and emotions riding through the chords. This allows his audience to stay tuned into every note he plays with great pleasure. George's favorite guitar is his strat but he is also well known for his well honed slide playing on his designated 59 Les Paul Jr and his collection of lap slides. His newest “toy” is a lap slide with palm pedals for a most special sound and addition to the music. It is always a treat and you never know which guitars he will show up with.
George resides in Asheville, NC where you will find him playing music with many of his musical friends up and down the East Coast.
George is substituting for the bands lead guitarist Tim on this occasion. He loves playing with Mark and his band. $10 at the door. Great way to spend Thursday evening.
