I'm generally a solo performer, though I'm also somewhat well-connected in the local music scene, and have been known to team up with other local musicians for special occasions, open-mic events and other collaborations. I play 6- & 12-string guitar, uke and mandolin to accompany my vocals, with an eclectic mix of mostly cover tunes. My 'jsmithsolo' ReverbNation page is probably the best place on-line to view some of my photos & videos, along with a handful of audio cuts. RevNat has had me showing among their Top-10 acts on their local 'South Bay Pop' chart. FYI, I also won a trip to Mexico in The Saddlerack's 12-week 'Male Vocal Competition' a few years back, just so you know! ;- )
Jeff came for my wife's 50th surprise party. Words can't describe enough our shear enjoyment and extreme satisfaction of having Jeff come to our home and play/sing such a wonderful variety of classical rock songs. We plan on having Jeff back for our next event!

What to Expect
Engaging sets of well-crafted, popular acoustic-guitar based material, grounded in 70's folk-rock, but always working to keep it more current, as well. I'm often complimented on my vocal talents (most often compared to Gordon Lightfoot and/or Eddie Vedder, with a little James Taylor thrown in). I try to keep my performances well-balanced and 'easy on the ears,' and I pride myself on having a pretty good sense of what songs are most appropriate and fitting for a given crowd or setting, pulling from my deep well of musical meanderings garnered from my over 30 years of playing, primarily in restaurant lounges, bars and coffeehouses.
