I'm a professional organist/pianist with years of varied experience, available for religious services, weddings, vocal accompaniment, or background music. While most often employed as a classically trained organist, I've also performed extensively for broadway-style shows, and background jazz piano. I'm happy to work with you to choose the best musical backdrop to your event, so you can relax and enjoy the day!
Congratulations Portland! You snagged a very gifted musician - organ, piano - recitalist, accompanist, event planner - wide range of musical diversity; and a very articulate and organized young man. Jeff has been a featured performer in so many of our public concerts as can be seen on www.greaterbridgeportago.org. I can't say enough about this young professional musician.
