“Jeff’s stirring originals and strong on-air presence helped us meet our fundraising goal”
D. Borough, KKUP Music Marathon Coordinator

When the Tech downturn hit Jeffrey Hellman combined his lifelong love of music with his computer expertise and set out to earn a living playing music. “In a way it was a Godsend, because it forced me to do the one thing I had always wanted to do but could never do full time.” Jeff began performing at Farmer’s Markets in the North Bay in the late 80’s including the Downtown San Rafael Farmer’s market . An opportunity to test software at Apple Computer required a move to Sunnyvale. Jeff was soon a regular performer at local South Bay Markets; especially the Sunnyvale Farmer’s Market. Years of performing in markets, private functions and other venues have produced a catalogue of music that is unique and seductive.

Jeff moved to Fetters Hot Springs on November 1st. Moving back to the North Bay has been a dream of mine, almost from the time I left. Living in Sonoma has improved my life in ways I wasn’t even aware needed fixing as well as all the ways I knew it would. [+]
