As a native of Williamson, New York, Jeff began performing at weddings and cafes while still in his teens. The uniqueness of the classical guitar coupled with his professionalism enabled him to stay working over the years. As his skills grew, he gave full concerts throughout Western New York. His hard work earned him performances at the Rantucci International Guitar Festival as well as the nationally recognized Ithaca Guitar Festival. His concerts continued with his move to Atlanta in the summer of 2002. From 2005-2007 Jeff took a hiatus to tour nationally with Country acts Young Guns (Nashville, TN) and Chace Roberts (St. Paul, Minnesota). As an electric guitarist, Jeff toured much of North America; playing clubs and dance halls with capacity crowds. It was an exciting time in his life and was quite the adventure. On his return home, Jeff resumed his solo performances. By 2009, he was touring throughout Georgia, playing in places such as Savannah, Tybee Island, Toccata, Richmond, Duluth, and Hartwell. Large, enthusiastic crowds were the norm at these events. These positive reactions together gave him a goal to take his music to a much wider audience. In February of 2010, Jeff undertook his first cross country solo tour. Making stops in Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas, he gave concerts for fervent audiences. The overwhelming success of this tour enabled him to expand his solo career to a national level. Jeff continued his success in 2011 with performances in Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida. His success sky rocketed in 2012 and 2013 with successful concerts as far away as Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and Wisconsin. Concerts were also give in Texas, Ohio and all of the South East. His 2014-17 concert season built upon the success of previous years, with repeat visits to venues in Alabama, Wyoming, South Carolina, Georgia and Mississippi. In 2018, Jeff plans to stay in the South East, giving concerts in Georgia, South Carolina and Louisiana. Jeff's concert program in Baxley includes works by Laurent de St. Luc, Jose Luis Merlin, and Heitor Villa-lobos. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
