My journey to pursue my music career began at the age of 12 when my grandparents bought me my first drum set. Music came naturally to me and I quickly taught myself to play guitar and bass in addition to drums.
By the time I was 13 years old, I started playing live music in bars. Eventually I became well known in the Columbia music scene and my small bar shows grew into much bigger shows. I performed for large festivals and even opened for some of my favorite bands.
At 21 years old, I established my own music studio where I would teach music lessons for bass, drums, acoustic guitar, and electric guitar. Music and entrepreneurship had officially become my full time career!
I had the desire to create something more that would stand out from all the rest, so that's when I began experimenting even further with my musical abilities.
I created a show unlike any other in the upstate where I loop drums, guitar, and vocal effects to form a one-man-band. I quickly became renowned for my unique performance and my Friday night shows became the biggest party in Greenville every single week.
Fast forward to today, Tallison and I are 8 years into our happy marriage and we are the proud parents of two awesome, beautiful kids. I've had quite a bit of experience in the music industry over the years and I continue to perform for a number of events year round, but have turned my focus toward weddings and large events.
My one-man-band performance is what has shaped my music career into what it is today: John Jett Live, An All-Inclusive Entertainment Solution.
Music is an art, but entertainment has always been my passion. Entertainment requires more than the art of music, it demands passion and personality. I enjoy being the reason people dance, sing and have the time of their lives. I appreciate the attention to detail and flow associated with a large event. I take pride in the collaboration experiences I get to be a part of while working with coordinators, directors, photographers, etc that are dedicated to capturing the desires of your heart to create your special one-of-a-kind event.
I crave the surge of adrenaline knowing that every element of an event like yours is a production and we only get one shot at making it a piece of cake. (see what I did there?)
