Jeff Fleury grew up in Saranac Lake, NY, the heart of the Adirondack Mountains.  As an accomplished trumpet player in high school, Jeff taught himself to play bass at the age of 17.  After playing for his high school's swing stage band, he went off to college where he mixed playing rugby, football, and performing with jazz, blues and rock bands.  

After college, Jeff began a 20+ year career in public service in Hanover, NH, continuing to play bass with local groups. After his service retirement, Jeff began to play the low end for several bands, including Moose In The Marsh, a popular multi-genre dance band in Sunapee, NH, where Aerosmith's Steven Tyler has a home.  Jeff also played with Please Don't Tell, a then-popular dance band, and The Joe Mitchell Project, opening for blues guitarist Ana Popovic.  

Jeff moved to Nashville, TN in 2017 to follow his passion and pursue a second career in music.  Jeff completed a year and a half residency with Hayes and the Hustle at B.B. King's Blues Club in downtown Nashville, soon becoming known as the top blues-rock act in Music City. Jeff then was chosen to play bass and become the bandleader for Southern Fury, a rock band that has shared the stage with international acts such as Blackberry Smoke, Molly Hatchet, .38 Special, and Bad Company, just to name a few.  Jeff also is the bass guitarist for the Rock City Cowboys, one of the most sought after cover bands in the greater Nashville area.  "I'm fortunate to be able to create original music and play some of my favorite songs and entertain people," said Jeff.

Jeff possesses a valid Tennessee LEOSA card which enables him to carry a concealed firearm anywhere in the United States, providing added security for groups he plays for and with.  "These days you can't be too careful.  I don't always carry and I'm not a gun nut, but I'm proficient and knowing I am ready to protect my bandmates gives them a sense of security and puts them at ease."  


Jeff and his wife Carolyn live in Gallatin, TN and have five children ranging from 26 to 22 years old.
