Jeff Naideau, a classically trained pianist, left Connecticut for California in the late 70's to join a rock-n-roll band. Since that time he has toured the world with such bands as Quiet Riot, Wang Chung, Eric Burden and Robbie Kreiger.
He had been visiting New Orleans over the years attending the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. During one festival, Jeff sat in at Patout's in the Quarter. The owner heard the performance and called him at his hotel to ask him to play for the remainder of his stay.
Jeff left Los Angeles and moved to the Big Easy to absorb the musical culture of New Orleans, and to learn from the best musicians that inhabit the city. A long time fan of New Orleans piano styles, Jeff has studied Professor Longhair, James Booker, and Dr. John.
