From May of 2016 to January of 2018, Jeff Coffey resided as the lead tenor vocalist and bassist for the multi-platinum selling Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame group Chicago.  “Never in a million years did I ever dream I would have the opportunity to play with a brand that I’ve admired my entire life.  I’ve been a huge fan of Chicago ever since I picked up a trombone back in the ’70s, and I thought Jimmy Pankow was most definitely the coolest trombone player EVER! So being on stage with Chicago was such an honor for me, and I had the time of my life!” 

Jeff’s latest album, THIS TIME AROUND, was released May 28th, 2021, and has been well received by fans and the music industry as Coffey’s vocals and songwriting abilities really shine through on this album.   THIS TIME AROUND is Jeff’s 4th solo studio album, and he continues to write and record new music, collaborating with many different artists and songwriters.  He also currently tours as bassist for Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Don Felder (formerly of The Eagles).
