Originally from Washington, D.C., Tommie Macon has been raised on music. Music was always a big part of her life. “Music was always in my home, day and night, seven days a week”. Tommie especially loves jazz and ballads. “You can always find the meaning of the story in the song when you sing a nice slow ballad”. Tommie is presently the lead vocalist and band leader for Tommie Macon and the Gentle Men of Jazz. This is a professional entertainment group that is in high demand and provides fine music at various venues throughout the greater Atlanta area and in and out of the state of Georgia. In addition to performing, you can hear Tommie’s voice on various voice over commercials for several Atlanta businesses and she also wrote and co-directed the Atlanta based musical “WHERE THE GOOD SONGS GO”. You can presently find Miss Macon performing regularly at Altobeli’s Italian Restaurant in Johns Creek Georgia. If you are into smooth jazz and soft tones then look no further because Tommie can fit the bill.
