Jeff "Drummerboy" Hayes

Known by his peers as one of the best blues brothers on the circuit, Jeff Hayes has been banging his drums on a dozen recordings with five different bands that included top talent from Washington, Oregon, Mississippi, Colorado and the U.K. You can find him lending his beat, plus songwriting & lead vocal credits on many pressings over the years.

Playing live is where Jeff is home and he has graced the stages of the major festivals in the Pacific NW and several national festivals including the San Felipe Blues Festival in San Felipe Mexico, King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, AK and the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, OR. He has played along side such greats such as the late Pinetop Perkins, Michael Burke, Bob Margolin, Mookie Brill, Peter Damann, Eden Brent, John-Alex Mason, Robbie Jordan and Eric “Two Scoops” Moore.
