Elena and George image


Elena and George have performed for a variety of functions including large and small events. They add a touch of class whether entertaining as a quiet guitar/vocal duo, jazz quartet or a full ensemble of musicians. For those looking for background only, George performs with his group for a smooth “strictly instrumental” set. For bookings feel free to call Gilliam Music. We can discuss options for any special occasion.

“George and Elena Gilliam are amazing. Not only are they extremely talented musicians but wonderful people. The warmth and enthusiasm that they bring to every show, keeps the crowd lively, smiling and swaying to their great music!

“George and Elena ~ I want you to know how pleased I am with the outstanding service you have always provided for my events over the many years we have worked together. I have always been able to rely on your professional and courteous service. You have made a great impression on all my clients that you have performed for and therefore, they always request your band for their parties again and again. Whether it be instrumental background music with your wonderful musicians or when we are lucky, and have Elena add her exceptional voice to really enhance the event. I look forward to doing business with you both for years to come! “ - Debbie Boone, Event Coordinator

“I first heard George and Elena as a duet at a private event and found them to be a true delight. This musical partnership and the joy that they bring in entertaining our clients and guests have been a wonderful addition to our events that we have asked them each year to return. I highly recommend them!” - Liza Krassner

“Whenever I think about a great live band for any of our events, I always think of the George Gilliam Group They are smooth, talented, flexible and professional. Our guests can dance to their music or just listen and groove to some great jazz music, at any venue. Elena has a fabulous soulful voice that is a joy to hear. We would hire them time and time again...it is never the same music twice!” - Karen Martin
