Jeff Griffith as “Glenn Frey”
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, developed his passion for music. The environment offered a free-spirited atmosphere and the encouragement needed to compliment his classical training. His journey with 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 attending classes at Juilliard, New England Conservatory and 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.
A proud member and former president of IATSE Local 195, IATSE Local 481 Grip Department and an active member of AFM Local 9-535 and the Recording Academy, Jeff with his company, Griflyn Productions, LLC, can be found performing, producing, teaching and consulting in every aspect of the entertainment industry.
