Jeff’s contribution to Boston’s music scene can’t be overstated. I mean he was truly a local music head. Countless independent artists were able to reach a wider audience because of his passion. He was always supportive of my bands, especially Boston Cream. We played Pipeline!, and he referred to us as a “supergroup” of Boston musicians. What a compliment! But that’s the thing . . . he took local musicians seriously. You don’t see that a lot from radio DJs. On top of that, he was genuinely kind, talented, always composed. And what a voice. His passing is a huge hit for Boston culture. Those shoes can’t be filled. I can’t speak for why he played Dancin’ three times, but I’m proud that he did.
appearance: June 25, 2019 (with Boston Cream)
