Jeffery Perkins - Studio Portrait #46

by Jamey Firnberg

Jeffrey Perkins has held the drum seat for the Paul Thorn Band since 1997. He was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up playing football and drumming in several bands before moving to Nashville.

Once in Nashville, Jeffrey's 30-plus year career includes stints with a diverse group of notable acts such as The Dusters, Billy Joe Shaver, Rayon City Quartet, Etta and Bob Britt, John Jorgenson (guitarist with Elton John), and Hank Williams Jr, along with numerous other singer/songwriters and bands. All of this has resulted in logging many hours on the road, in the studio, on radio and TV shows, and to this moment, non-stop merriment with Paul and the fellows.  - Paul Thorne Website
