Born into a musical family, Jeff Trudell began performing professionally at age ten with his father, renowned Motown trumpeter and bandleader Johnny Trudell. Within two years Jeff was an AFM union member, working with Dixieland great Tom Saunders, and shortly thereafter he was one of the “young lions” on Detroit’s musical scene. Jeff became—at age 21—the youngest owner of the oldest drum shop in the U.S., The Drum Shop. He has worked for over a decade as the drummer for the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, starring the world-famous Rockettes, and he has played for many Broadway and Off Broadway shows, including Dreamworks’ Shrek the Musical. Jeff plays with numerous jazz and Latin luminaries, and he is a GMS Drums Endorser.
