Jeff can be referred to as a chameleon in the working drummer world. He is best known for his ability to provide just the right percussive backdrop for any musical situation. This is very evident in the widely varying artists he has worked with such as Grammy award winning artist Chris Thomas King (Oh Brother Where Art Thou, Ray), Bonerama, Papa Gros Funk, Vasti Jackson, Amy Trail, Boukou Groove, Donnie Sundal, Jr. Marvin, and many other southeastern regional groups and artists.

In addition to being an accomplished drum set performer Jeff has recently completed his Masters in Music Education where he served as a graduate assistant to Dr. John Wooton at the University of Southern Mississippi. He is a member of the Vic Firth Education Team and teaches marching percussion to many high school programs and serves as in instructor at the Southern Miss Summer Drumming camps. He recently accepted the percussion instructor position at William Carey University.

Jeff received the people’s choice award for best drummer/drum solo at the 2012 Blues and Rock fest in Phuket, Thailand. His domestic and international touring with Chris Thomas King and Vasti Jackson continues through countries such as Norway, Sweden, Germany and Canada.
