Jazz guitarist Denny Jiosa is set to play this Friday night at Main Street Live.

The Main Street Live summer concert series continues this Friday with a man described by Jazziz Magazine as, “If Eric Clapton played jazz, he’d be Denny Jiosa.” 

An evening with Denny Jiosa is June 25 and begins at 7 p.m. 

The concert is touted as a “not-to-be-missed event filled with musical virtuosity, soaring guitar solos, memorable melodies and pure entertainment.” Jiosa began learning to play guitar at age 7. At 13, his band was performing at school dances. During high school, Jiosa learned trumpet, French horn, bass and he sang in the choir.

Today, the Indiana native lives in Nashville.
