Drummer / Producer
Tripoli's drumming reflects a wide background of independent musical influences. At the root of his dynamic framework resides the deep passion to provide fresh rhythms and artistic perspective.
On the road and in the studio. Tripoli has performed with many groups of various styles throughout the United States, Canada and Europe including Rock, Funk, Blues, Soul, Alternative, Bluegrass, Zydeco, Americana, Celtic, Folk and World.
(Eels, Lucinda Williams, Tracy Chapman)
"Tripoli comes with the goods as a drummer playing for the music and not just packing tracks with every lick he's ever learned. The beauty, for me, is the brevity, the sound, and the performances. Jeff trims the fat with energetic and infectious grooves."
(Gon Bops, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh)
"Tripoli's new album, Wabi Sabi, is so creative and inventive... soundscape ideas and percussion layers are deep. Nice work! Great textures...sometimes disturbing which I think is cool."
(World Drum Club)
"I’m really digging Tripoli's new album, Wabi Sabi. Jeff has put together something that is not only progressive, but musically satisfying as well. I appreciate the grooves, the sounds, the complete sonic palette, and the compositions."
