Written by Friday, 01 August 2014 00:00
AN APPRECIATIVE CROWD OF AROUND 60 AT  FIRST FRIDAY LIVE ON 1ST AUGUST AT BAR ONE88 ENJOYED THE SMOOTH, CHILLED AND SOPHISTICATED SOUNDS OF JEFF & DEE.
 
THE STAR-TINGLING EFFECTIVE DUO WITH THE SKILLED VOCALS OF DEE AND THE COMPLEX FINGERPICKING AND CHORD STRUMMING OF JEFF PRODUCED A LIVELY HARMONICALLY SOUND GIG.
 
THE VARIATION OF SONGS SUNG BY DEE THROUGH THE HIGH AND LOW NOTES GAVE THE BAR ONE88 PATRONS A TASTE OF THE QUALITY LOCAL MUSICIANS IN OUR AREA. 
 
IT'S EASY TO SEE WHY JEEF & DEE ARE A CLASS ACT FOR A PERFECT BAR /CLUB ENVIRONMENT.
 
SEE YOU AT THE NEXT FIRST FRIDAY LIVE GIG FOR A CHAT, DRINK AND OF COURSE MUSIC AT ITS BEST.
 

Jeff and Dee

Soul  -   Jazz    -    Blues  -    Old School R&B

‘Jeff & Dee’ are a relatively new duo, performing the styles of music that they most enjoy, in and around Griffith. Jeff on Guitar and Dee on vocals.

The ‘Jeff’ portion of J&D is local boy, Sir Jeffery Wright. He’s not officially a knight, but he should be. He’s wonderful. He plays gee-tar real good and knows a thing or two about making great music. When asked what the highlight of his music career has been, Jeff recalls playing poolside at the ‘Miss Sunshine Beauty Pageant’ 1981. It’s all been downhill since then.

The ‘Dee’ bit of the duo is Adelaidian, Deanna Farnell and she only sings cos she can’t do anything else. Lucky she loves it. She’s young (very young) but had some experience in a few countries and cities, singing across a number of genres; mainly Musical Theatre, pop and soul. Not country music. Never country music. Highlights of her career include The Buddy Holly Musical in London, singing at the Rugby World cup, and being the State Music Coordinator for The Australian Girls’ Choir. When she grows up, she dreams of being big black man with a bass voice.
