Jeff Thacher Biography

Jeff Thacher

Born: 1967. Living in: Potsdam, New York.

The astonishing percussion sounds you hear in a Rockapella show are performed vocally by Jeff Thacher, completing Rockapella's band-without-instruments sound. Born of a very musical family and raised on piano lessons from an early age, he later added frequent vocal and choral experience. After receiving a degree in music and recording from Boston's renowned Berklee College of Music, Jeff spent some time in the radio and television industries while singing and experimenting with vocal percussion on the side in various groups, developing his unique sound. Since joining Rockapella in 1993, he's been known as a pioneering giant among professional mouth drummers (a select group of beatboxers) who, as he likes to put it, "spit for a living". Jeff's powerful virtuosity forms the funky rhythmic heartbeat of Rockapella, delighting and astonishing audiences everywhere. An American original, for sure!
