Jeff Conley opened and played with Black Marmot in April of 2011. Jeff has been described as “Mellow, yet upbeat folk tunes served on homemade, antique, electric instruments.”
3 years ago, two 1960’s Gibson guitars were stolen out of my car after a show.
With a full schedule, I needed to continue playing, but could not afford to purchase or spend years looking for these vintage guitars again. With many old parts lying around at home I decided to build instead of buy.
Since then, playing and building only homemade guitars & drums has become a passion & a focus.
I’ve shared the stage with acts such as Bela Fleck, Zakir Hussain, & Edgar Meyer, Rusted Root, The Rustic Overtones, State Radio, the members of Dispatch, The Ryan Montbleau Band, Barefoot Truth, WIll Dailey & The RIvals, & Many more…
I am often accompanied by Krissy Price (harmony singer / homemade Ukulele), Steve Benson (Pedal Steel, Lap Steel, Mandolin), Fred Bement (harmonica) & Boyan Hristov (slide guitar)
