Peter Jeffery


Band to Join.


For whatever past gigs are worth, I’ve played pubs, lounges, crappy pizza joints & nightclubs large & small across Canada from Nfld & PEI to Victoria & Kelowna BC.

Also smaller arenas, several universities, theatres, several large outdoor music festivals. TV stuff including Breakfast Television several times, ECMA artist showcases & Canada AM Live.

Played 1000-1200 gigs/ shows with cover & tribute bands plus original bands, solo artists and several subbing freelance gigs in Toronto & Halifax.

I have a day job/ career that gives me some band scheduling flexibility. I don't rely or expect to always be making money playing drums these days. With the right musicians, I'm happy doing as little as just rehearsing or potentially as much as touring.
