From his roots in Brooklyn, NY to his childhood memories in Teaneck, NJ, Dwayne's musical interests moved beyond the quartet group to the soulful sounds of church music, so at the age of seven, it was the high pitched sounds of the guitar that convinced him of a music career.

As Dwayne grew into adolescence and young adulthood, he began to perfect his talent with guitar lessons and gained support from his biggest fan, his father. His first Gibson GS guitar came as a gift from his father, the same type used in his father's quartet group.

After graduating from York College, Dwayne chose a career in Information Technology and later became a Microsoft Certified Professional and continued to play for local churches throughout the country. Although Dwayne's day job created shelter and a means of survival, his love for the guitar never diminished. Performing at every opportunity, this began a sea of networking among other musicians in the local and national arena.

The first big break came as legendary soul and pop singer, Ben E. King of the famed song, Stand By Me, saw Dwayne perform. After joining the band, his repertoire opened to R&B, Reggae, Jazz and Blues. This solidified Dwayne's musical career.

As an Atlanta resident, Dwayne continues to perform throughout the city. He served as the lead guitarist at Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral for nine years, Served with Bishop TD Jakes for two years, currently works with churches to provide ministry and support for those in our community who are struggling with hurts, habits or hang-ups and are ready to work their way through a process of recovery with others and with God, owns a local production company called RaDaQuin Musci Group LLC, D&B Productions, and has established a very successful variety band called "Dmac & Friends. In addition Dwayne D’Mac McMillan has a very successful weekly show at Hartsfield Jackson International Airport called “Just Me And My Guitar”.

Dwayne is also very active in his community as he directs and runs a non profit organization called the “Father & Son Bonding” Project, Inc. This non profit was established to rebuild the family unit by providing assistance to fathers whose lives have been impacted by incarceration, and who voluntarily seek rehabilitation through participation in the program. The “Father & Son Bonding” project will include the following; employment assistance, financial planning, mentoring and life skills, and business ownership.

Music is to be used as a vehicle to bridge communication gaps between races, societies, governments and religious sectors. By delivering his music, Dwayne hopes to open the door to a continued bonding relationship with Jesus Christ. more >>>
