If you took southern rock mixed with a modern day edginess and add a dash of good ol' Midwest and a bunch of originality, then you've got JT & the Gunslingers, one of the regions fastest growing bands. ~ Megan Kennedy, Post Bulletin
SOUTHERN ROCK and COUNTRY
Jeff Stewart - Drums, Vocals
Waseca born and Rochester raised, Jeff first cut his teeth in the drumming world with a Muppets drum set at the age of 4. It wasn’t until he was in high school and got his first job that Jeff was able to obtain his first real drum set at the age of 16. All those years of air drumming along to his favorite albums paid off and Jeff quickly made up for lost time by joining his first gigging band, SUMMER WINDE, just two years later. It was in this band 20 years ago that Jeff first shared the stage with fellow NASHVEGAS member and long-time friend, Todd. After a long run with SUMMER WINDE, Jeff and Todd would share the stage again with JAGGED EASE.
After his time in JAGGED EASE, Jeff dove into the Twin Cities music scene with the rock band THE EFFENHEIMER SISTERS as well as a year-long stint with THE CLEANEST DIRTY SHIRT COMBO, a Johnny Cash tribute band.
Jeff made his return to the SE Minnesota music scene to join forces once again with Todd to form NASHVEGAS and is now the thump in your chest at JT & The Gunslingers shows.
