The best kept secret in music

(Jeff is) one of the most gifted worship leaders I have had the honour of working with. (He) is a great Worship Leader - A gifted musician. Sensitive to the Spirit. Possessing an amazing capacity to usher people into the presence of God. - Rev. Bob Bahr, Sr Pastor - West Vancouver Baptist Church


Sunny's band, 'Jeff Somers Band' blessed me so much! I was in Vancouver for a summer, filming a TV show, and found myself worshiping at a Baptist Church. I didn't know anyone in Canada, but felt instantly at home and part of the family of Christ. The band was artistically professional and I could tell they were sincerely worshiping Jesus, not just performing. (Jeff) played the song "Famous One". I had never heard it before. It remains my favorite worship song to this day, and my personal anthem. "..You are the Lord, the famous one, famous one, great is your name in all the earth...” - Victoria Jackson, former SNL cast member


The Jeff Somers Band has the maturity, passion and experience to lead your group in worship. They will usher you into an attitude of adoration and place you before the King. They reveal a coming together of years of worship leading experience and musical expertise. Their style is unique and is expressed passionately. The JSB has an ability to weave new material, their own material and worship classics into an authentic experience. They are easy to work with and true servants. Want what’s new? Invite these guys to come. - Rob Nylen, Associate Director, Youth and Family Ministries - Atlantic Baptist Convention


Excellence in worship leading requires at least a couple of things. The members of the ‘worship band’ need to be excellent musicians who have a burning desire to lead people in lifting up the Name of the Lord. The members of the Jeff Somers Band are both! They are a great band with a heart for God and His hand is on their ministry, no doubt! - Rev. Gord MacLeod, Sr Pastor - Lewisville Baptist Church

Bio

Worship is performance. Most of us in Christian circles would balk at that statement, however Jeff Somers Band (JSB) stakes their lives and musical careers on it. The difference is the band operates with the understanding that they are performing for the most coveted and deserving audience in the entire universe – God the Father and Creator. As a band they exist to create the best possible musical offering for their King, and to draw people into the journey along with them. JSB seeks to find the intersection where the path of excellently written and performed music meets deep, truthful and spiritual worship…. and camp there.
Jeff Somers Band, strictly speaking, has been together since 2003. That, however, does not tell the whole story. A number of its members have been playing together in various capacities for several years. The group in its current incarnation was formed as the house worship band for an event in Moncton, New Brunswick called “the Spot” (www.hitthespot.ca) where Jeff was leading worship. Through the process of leading people in worship together JSB began to develop as a band and as worship leaders. As opportunities popped up and God prompted they began the journey of venturing outside “the Spot” and playing various venues and events from home (Moncton, NB) to Montreal, PQ and back.
Jeff Somers (lead vocals, guitars), Dennis Prescott (lead guitars), Tim Richardson (Bass), Jon Arsenault (drums, BGVs), and Dave Yanofsky (keys) come from a variety of backgrounds both musically and otherwise. Their original music, though undeniably pop rock, is fresh and edgy. A premium is placed on strong lyrical truth with this band, whether it be a song they’ve written or a worship standard, which they’ve reworked and made their own. They pride themselves in taking the performance and writing aspects of their music very seriously; with JSB “good enough” is never good enough. That being said they are an easy-going fun-loving bunch. They often use off-the-wall humour to cut through the stresses and frustrations that come part and parcel with the blessings of the worship and music industries.
Presently, the Jeff Somers Band is still enjoying serving as lead worshipers for 'The Spot'. The event has experienced extensive growth over the past few years, and the band feels privileged that God has given them the opportunity to be a part of His work. Over the past year, the band has had the opportunity to take their brand of modern worship to a number of events throughout the Maritimes and beyond. They look forward to more of these opportunities surfacing in the future. "I consider it an honour to play under any circumstance," comments Somers. "As children of God, when we join together to offer our gifts of worship to Him, and he meets with us… that is truly awesome."
