Jerome started as a percussionist in middle school and has played music for over 40 years. After learning basic rhythm technics, he moved to the low brass section, learning how to play the tuba. As he progressed thru the avenues, the trombone, euphonium, bass trumpet all became relevant.
Jerome has played in many organizations from large orchestras, concert bands, marching bands, jazz ensembles to small combos, trios and quintets. Able to play ANY style of music, but jazz is his specialty.
Currently, Jerome is playing with a New Orleans style brass band and is the co-founder of the Atlanta Brass Connection (ABC).
As a musician with many miles travelled and much experience, he still has enough POWER to play with Zephyr Instrumental. And in his own words, "A FINE organization!!!"
