Full Circle
by Jeff Conlon
Jeff Conlon was born "the third son of a doctor," he "got the height," his "brothers got the brains." Or so claims one his original tunes entitled "Up, Up, and Away." Jeff grew up in Queens, New York, listening to his parents 8 track cassette tapes of John Denver, The Wolftones, and The Clancy Brothers. While in the sixth grade Jeff was tucked away in the back of the family station wagon en route to Long Island to visit family. The traffic was horrific. It came to pass that the traffic was due to the crash and ultimately the death of Harry Chapin. The radio announcer, Meg Griffin, anounced that the legendary singer songwriter had died. Jeff decided at that moment that he wanted to learn how to play guitar so he could play "Taxi" and "Cat's in the Cradle." Many years later, Jeff would come full circle with this childhood memory. While performing at The Big Apple Bluegrass Festival in Manhattan, Jeff was honored by having Meg Griffin up to perform "Cat's in the Cradle" with him. Jeff became a New York City Police Officer, got married, had children, and continued on the music dream. Sleep was no longer an option! Jeff put out three albums on his own with the help of producer and grammy nominated songwriter Joaquin Lievano. On September 11, 2001 the world changed. Six months later Jeff retired from the Police Department and took on music full time. He moved his family up to Connecticut and joined forces with The Highland Rovers Band, putting out another two albums with The Rovers and one more on the way!!!! Jeff continues to play with The Highland Rovers, another 10 year journey which has led to such gigs as Shea Stadium, performing the national anthem with the boys three times, filling in with The Marshall Tucker Band, and selling out numerous shows, clubs, and theatres. The idea is simple; make it fun and it will be contagious. Jeff also does shows with a line up called Americelt. Americelt is an opportunity to do some different stuff with a diverse group of musicians. No two shows are ever the same. Guaranteed fun for all or your cover charge back (that only applies to shows with no cover.)
