Jeff has been performing for most of his adult life, both as a solo artist and in two of Denvers most popular a cappella groups, The Diners and Cool Shooz, a group he joined in 1996. As a member of these groups he has opened for the likes of Ray Charles, Marvin Hamlisch, Pete Fountain, Kevin Pollack, The Persuasions, Firefall and The Bobs, and sung for thousands of music lovers nationwide at festivals, concerts, nightclubs, and competitions. The Diners and Cool Shooz have made numerous appearances on radio and TV, and sung the U.S. and Canadian national anthems at Denver Nuggets, Colorado Rockies, and Colorado Avalanche games as well as many other professional and amateur sporting events. Cool Shooz released its own CD in 2002.
His experience includes performing with his own band Rat Race Refugees and TJ Coupe in area clubs and car shows. In 1993 he released Boogie Woogie Boogeyman, a recording of childrens music, and in 1998 released an all-original CD entitled This One Life. In 2015, he released an all-original CD, "The Golden Thread."
Jeff started the Colorado Arts Center in Denver CO, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to develop and maintain a state-of-the-"arts" facility in the Denver metro area. He resigned his position with that organization and with other bands to focus on his songwriting and solo performances.

Cool Shooz is an amazing group of singers who perform classic Rock and R&B, sprinkled with some gospel and jazz all with their voices, no instruments are used. They have performed along the Front Range for over 10 years, wowing crowds with great harmony and making them laugh in the process. They started out singing for tips on the Boulder Mall and have built a solid reputation as professional entertainers and top-notch musicians. Fun, amazing, funny is how one fan described the show.
Cool Shooz is Dave Small, first tenor and Music Director; Chase Darnell, second tenor; Jeff King, second tenor; Marc Johnson, first tenor; Dutch Miller, bass; and Tom Connor, vocal percussion.
Cool Shooz can be seen regularly at clubs and festivals in the Denver area and all along the Front Range. They are available for corporate parties and events, fundraisers, festivals, concerts, private parties, and anywhere harmony is appreciated.
