Jeff Dershin & The Jeff Dershin Trio

JEFF DERSHIN signed his first recording contract with Mercury Records at the age of 18. Educated at SUNY Binghamton, Juilliard and West Chester University, Jeff has spent 3 decades as an entertainer and teacher.


He has toured Europe as keyboardist with the seminal rock/fusion band "Sweet Smoke," accompanied Pat Benatar and Patty Smyth, served on the faculties of public and private schools, directed musical plays both in schools and off- Broadway, and has written original music (traditional and electronic) for theater dance and film.


A member of the Bucks County Chamber of Commerce, Jeff was also for 20 years a member of the American Federation of Musicians. He has played at countless social functions, performed with the Bucks County Symphony, hosted "Brown-Bag It with the Arts," the weekly summer arts series broadcast on Suburban CATV (now Comcast), been an "Artist-In-Residence" in the local school system and has, in his community, served as an ambassador of the arts at numerous "Career Days."


Jeff Dershin is currently performing both as a keyboard soloist and band-leader in and around the Philadelphia metropolitan area, while keeping up with a busy teaching schedule at his studio in beautiful Bucks County.

One of our most popular performers, Jeff Dershin plays a wide range of music (cool jazz, the great standards, to more contemporary.) Jeff is available as a duo with Piano and Upright Bass, or Piano and Sax. The trio includes pianist/vocalist Jeff Dershin, along with Upright Bass, and Sax.

Jeff Dershin is amazing. He has a beautiful voice and sang all the songs I requested. He also came dressed in a tux which was very classy. I would highly recommend his services and they are very affordable. Great deal and great musician!


Everyone loved Jeff on Sunday at the party. He was absolutely perfect!!!
We had a great time!
