Brother Jefferson Acoustic Duo (St. Louis, MO)

“Two things you are assured of when Jeff Chapman takes the stage is true professionalism and that you'll hear Blues. When you witness Jeff with his Brother Jefferson Band you'll hear a proficient songwriter, vocalist, guitar player who has surrounded himself with accomplished and diverse musicians. Whether Jeff is playing Rockabilly, Memphis, Delta, Country, Chicago, Texas or Twelve-Bar Blues he does it his way which I find both soothing and inspirational.”
