Jeff Martini Self titled release May 2005
itunes/ jeff martini



Originally from the suburbs of Washington D.C., Jeff Martini cut his teeth in the underground band scene during his school days at Virginia Tech. Playing Sax and Guitar (and later bass after line up changes) in the touring outfit 'the Thrift Unit'. A live Hip-Hop act with indie rock attitude. Later he would play in the Middle Weight Contenders--“A funky instrumental band that the cool kids came out to see”. Jeff helped form the band that looked to influences such as the meters, grant green and the jb’s. He later helped form the Prime Ministers, a white boy soul/punk rock band that shook rumps in the mountainous region of Blacksburg. Many felt the band was somewhere near the Make-up and Delta 72. When the band moved to NYC, they went through several changes, including an instrumental refinement with nods to the likes of tortoise and the mercury program. All members switching instruments bringing much gear for a four piece (Vibraphone, Electric Pianos/Organs, Guitars, Basses, Saxophones, Trumpets, Drums and even a Bicycle Pump to name a few). One legendary performance at CBGB’s, Tyler Dickson,( formerly of Algebra One and currently with the band Coastal Drag), introduced them as “the band with more instruments than god.” When the band’s run was over, Jeff dusted off the songs he had been secretly working on. Culminating into a release of deepcuts that go well with a cup of coffee and a good friend.
