Jeff Clark
Baeder's Blues Concert Series features a different jazz or blues performer every week, local and visiting, performing alongside Baeder.
Clark has worked extensively throughout his home state of Pennsylvania, much of the northeast U.S. and across the country. These days, he can be seen riding his longboard with amps and guitars, to and from Old Town Key West gigs. Despite a busy gig schedule, Clark makes sure to play with staple Key West musicians. Together they offer superb talent and a deep repertoire.
As his writing evolves, matures and simplifies, Clark has received more and more positive feedback and higher demand for his music talent. Clark said he's becoming more averse to the island grooves, reggae and dancehall, and right now, is working on developing original bands with fewer limits.
Also at Island Dogs next week:
  • Sunday, September 16, 2012: Arizona at New England at 1 p.m.
  • Thursday, September 20, 2012: Tony Roberts at 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, September 22, 2012: Clemson at Florida State TBD
