About Me

Jeff Sizer started performing in Seattle area R&B Bands while still a high school student in 1971. He experienced four years of road life with “Jim Brady and the Sonics” and played some “hot and savage swing” in the “New Deal Rhythm Band”. Venues included Vegas, Lake Tahoe, the Bahamas and the LA Playboy Club. A published composer, Jeff won the National Association of Jazz Educators composition contest in 1981 for his big band piece, “Samba These Days”. His compositions and arrangements have been performed at the NAJE Conference, the International Trombone Convention and at many Jazz Festivals.

Jeff has been a music educator for 33 years in public schools and at Shoreline Community College. His performing groups have won awards at all levels from Middle School to College. He continues to be an active performer, having played in the “Seahawks Band” and backing up many artists including Dionne Warwick, Julio Iglesias, The Ojays, Buddy DeFranco and Clark Terry on either trombone or piano. He currently performs with 10 piece funk band, The Depot Street Syncopators, the Columbia Basin Jazz Orchestra, and in the Rock Creek Jazz Quartet with his wife Gina and children, Dan and Kate.
