Hello...
I am an entertainer who enjoys performing different styles of music on my 1923 tenor banjo and Lowrey Organ. My performances usually range from Bluegrass,Dixieland/Standards to Ragtime.

What sets my banjo performance apart is my abilty to "stroll" the area with my portable sound system or just simply stay near the stage and perform with it.

This style of fun music is a great "toe tapping" experience for all ages to enjoy that would like to have a different flair to their party.

{Now For The More Stylish and Eligant Venues}

I am traveling and performing with my "Lowrey Premier Organ" at different restaurants, supper clubs, weddings and anyone wanting a quality sound that Lowrey provides and is known for.

Just so you know, these organs sell from $7,500 to over $100,000 dollars when they are purchased new! You will find the bigger Lowreys such as the (Prestige or the Imperial)at the larger baseball diamonds in Chicago and Milwaukee to name a few.

These beautiful organs have been manufactured in the Chicago area for the last 40 years but are rarely seen out in public venues. They are usually sold at the music stores to people that immediatly take them to their homes and no one gets to hear them except for the homeowner who purchased it for their own enjoyment.

I am the only one as far as I know, that can transport and perform and then bring my organ back home when I am finished with the engagement.
Check around you won't find another! If you do let me know! LOL!

Along from performing solo on the organ, I also have the additional versitility to play my banjo and guitar along with it because it is a player organ also. That's right! I can record my own music and then play the banjo with it as needed for different venues or shows I might be invited to perform at! No need for more musicians as the Premier does it all!

With that said, please feel free to contact me for a "One of a Kind" fun engagement that you might or are planning.

I always enjoy meeting new clients and friends!

Sincerely,
Jeffrey

Jeff was a pleasure to deal with and a hit at the pig roast we hosted! He played the banjo while strolling around the party, and my guests were very impressed! He did this for about an hour, kids were dancing, adults were really enjoying. He then rolled out the organ, set up under the deck on the pavers and played the organ, banjo and sang a few songs. everyone enjoyed the atmosphere tremendously, and they thought I was a genius for having such original entertainment. He is talented, kind, and enjoys his work. He made it a memorable afternoon/evening, and I would hire him again in a second!

Jeff was on time and set up well in advance and ready to go when the BBQ began. The residents enjoyed his performance and told me they wanted him to come back another time as well. Jeff communicated via email with me in the weeks prior to the gig, so there were no surprised. We were completely prepared. I will recommend Jeff to others!
