JEFF CALLERY + GINO (Folk/Rock, Brockville)
September 16 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Jeff has been playing music for more than half of his life. Starting in highschool, he hit the road young and played in every bar, at every fair, festival and theater that would hire him and his bands all over the province of Ontario, Quebec and New York State.
This night, he brings his rock god sidekick GINO!
Never afraid to put his music and performance out there for all to see and critique, Jeff has won and placed honorably in contests all over North America – both for his performance and songwriting.
In 1999 Jeff won the New York State Title for the True Value Home Hardware Country Star Search. In 2007, Jeff won the New York State Title for the Colgate Country Showdown and placed respectably in the National Semi-Finals of that same contest in West Virginia.
In 2008, Jeff had his first single cut as a songwriter by a finalist of the famed “Idol” franchise and it was included on her debut album – Tara Oram’s Chasing the Sun – Canadian Idol finalist.
He is a married father of 2. His family is his life. He is also a dedicated community volunteer and Rotarian.
When asked about his music, he says he likes to think of it somewhere between James Taylor, John Mellancamp and Canadian hit band Blue Rodeo.
“I just like to make music. Every song is about me or someone in my life. Most times I sing songs to and about the guy in the mirror. When other people can connect with those songs, it’s very satisfying because they are written from my very personal point of view.” “When that happens it reminds me that everyone is going through the same stuff – maybe at different times and with different priorities, but it binds us.”
“The songs say more about me than any bio could!” says Callery
