Emigrated South from Glasgow in the late 60’s as drummer with local heroes ‘The Beatstalkers’ for residences at the old London Marquee Club and the Frankfurt & Cologne ‘Storeyville’ clubs.
Later to join ‘East of Eden’, a sort of Roland Kirk meets Frank Zappa, with an electric violin! Frank Z’s favourite UK band according to an NME interview with the great man!
Sessions and touring followed (Bonnie Tyler, Barbara Dickson, Chuck Berry ,Van Morrison) then 3 years with that irascible genius John Martyn.
Jeff is still (as John used to say) 'building things at the back of the stage' with Denny Laine, Mick Taylor, Zoot Money, Pete Brown, Max Middleton – London’s ‘old geezers network’.
Party planning for the Brunei Royal Family in London led to his appointment as executive producer of music concerts establishing Jeff as a major talent broker and event producer.
Staging, filming and recording concerts by Michael Jackson (2), Janet Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Sting(2),Tina Turner, Whitney Houston (2),Celine Dione, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Chaka Khan ,Michael McDonald, James Ingram, Dionne Warwick and many more, in Brunei, Jakarta, Singapore , London and United States.
Jeff’s operating base is the ‘music factory, studio complex that Sensible Music has become’.
Currently developing various bands and singer/songwriters as part of a joint venture with some independent labels as well as over-seeing the various off shoot companies that have sprung from his endeavours over the years.
