Jeff Griffith has been composing and performing since the age of five. Performing in coffee houses in upstate New York in the early 70’s, reaffirmed his passion for music and the environment offered a free-spirited atmosphere and the encouragement needed to compliment his classical training. His passion for music led to the completion of his first symphony by the age of 9, appointment to Choir and Folk Group Director at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in Pawtucket, Rhode Island at the age of 11 and producing a television spot for the Ronald Reagan 1980 election campaign.

After completing his degree from the University of Massachusetts Lowell studying composition, guitar and voice with the likes of Nector Lennox, Anton Holevas, Jon Wheatley, Everett Longstreth, Nat Paella, Dr. Gerry Lloyd and Paul Gay; Jeff decided to venture into the theater and music production world to develop more skills in order to help promote his music. Serving as Technical Director at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, the Lowell Memorial Auditorium, Project Manager for High Output, Inc. and the industry’s leading rigging manufacturer JR Clancy, Inc., no aspect of production was untouched.

Feeling the need to return to his music full time, Jeff left the production and project management side of the industry to devote his life fully to his art. Currently serving on the faculty for The Wheeler School Performing Arts Department (Providence, RI) as well as maintaining a busy freelance, composing, producing and side musician schedule.

A proud member and president of IATSE Local 195, and an active member of AFM Local 9-535, Jeff can currently be seen performing with the Rick Larrimore the “Ultimate” tribute to Rod Stewart band, Another Tequila Sunrise the Eagles Tribute Band and 2nd Chance.
