Jeff and the band will rock the house for the fourth year in a row – and their seveth Bowie celebration at Hill Country -- with music by Bowie and the musical legends who inspired him, including John Lennon, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Lou Reed/VU, Iggy Pop and more, as well as Jeff's original music inspired by The Thin White Duke.
In 2012 Jeff debuted his solo album Birds of Paradox to sold out crowds around New York City. Since then he has toured, released Imposters & Attractions, a new album of original music inspired Elvis Costello, as well as an all-star version of The Kinks’ “Big Sky” on a tribute album to the late Kinks bass player Pete Quaife, and written extensively about some of music’s biggest names for Esquire, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. Since February 2014 Jeff has been a featured performer with his Birds of Paradox band at the Fest For Beatles Fans here in New York. This year he celebrated 30 years of the Traveling Wilburys in a show with Roy Orbison’s sons.
In May 2013 Jeff made his Hill Country Live! debut with his Dylan Obscura show, playing a set full of songs that Dylan himself has never recorded or even played live, gems he rarely plays in concert and some of his best but least known songs, as well as original music inspired by Dylan, to a packed house. He’s returned regularly with stellar, packed shows celebrating John Lennon, David Bowie, Tom Petty and others, with a long list of very special guests.
Jeff’s latest album, Secret Poetry, released in 2016, features performances by Bowie alums Earl Slick, Carlos Alomar, Gail Ann Dorsey, Mark Plati and Alex Alexander, as well as Laurence Juber and Steve Holley from Wings, and many, many more!
In 2019, Jeff appeared alongside members of David Bowie’s former band for the second consecutive year, as part of the world tour A Bowie Celebration. In October he appeared at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles, as the musical director for the all-star Tom Petty Birthday Celebration.
