Tim Jeffreys Tim Jeffreys

I started playing the drums at age 8, went professional at age 17 touring and recording with some major Bay Area and L.A. heavyweight musicians, and continue today drumming and singing in part-time club bands performing in Smooth Jazz and some Classic Rock. I have also played in Country, Fusion, Top 40 and Big Band Swing Bands. My past experience also includes: recording session work with Steve Lukather (Toto), drummed for fusion guitarist Jerry Umeta, and backed up country artists Keith Urban and Clay Walker when they came through town.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
