Laura Bell Bundy band, and Independent Artist
Jeff Pegues, PERCUSSIONIST Passion, Drive, Expertise, Anointing…all vital elements that prove Jeff Pegues to be a necessary, sought-after ingredient in any musical setting.
A native of Knoxville, TN, Jeff began playing drums at age 4, given the time and opportunity through Greater First C.O.G.I.C., his home church. It wasn’t until age 16 that Jeff began to seriously consider his God-given talent and the anointing that enveloped his gift as more than just a hobby. Throughout those next three years of honing and cultivating his craft, Jeff was hand-picked to accompany various artists that passed through Knoxville, as well as a few choirs in and around the city.
Upon turning 19, Jeff relocated to Nashville in pursuit of furthering his education. The move alone opened his eyes to far more than he imagined. Jeff continued to develop his musical prowess, and the buzz that he created around Nashville afforded him the chance to get connected with several other musicians and industry greats in the area. The demand for his unique, stylistic approach to playing carried over into Nashville. Jeff has been fortunate and blessed by God to share the platform with such artists as Dorinda Clark-Cole, CeCe Winans, Dorothy Norwood, Fred Hammond, and Beverly Crawford. His most recent accomplishment is the touring dates that he’s done with Sacred Steele Guitarist Aubrey Ghent and Vasti Jackson. Jeff’s percussion has also been woven into the albums of Kenny Springs, Hallerin Hilton Hill, and his own instrumental project, Dawn Of Destiny, all projected to be released early to mid-2009.
Though Jeff Pegues has an extensive music resume’, a nearly fully-stamped passport due to overseas tours, and is known for captivating his audiences, he knows undoubtedly that not one of his accomplishments would have been possible without the One who created us. His counsel to the up-and-coming drummers is simple, yet insightful: “Many have the gift. BUT, the anointing with the gift makes all the difference…keep God first and continue to be patient. The same God that blesses me is able to bless you.” Jeff Pegues’ services include, but are not limited to: studio sessions, live sessions, drum programming, youth and adult drum lessons.
