Early musical experiences included accordion competitions in Phoenix and Los Angeles, as well as playing in a a local accordion band in Arizona. Since high school and college Jeff has focused on playing both guitar and piano, and it was several years ago when he re-kindled his fondness for this wonderful instrument. Currently Jeff enjoys playing a variety of musical styles and specializes in playing french musette music.
