About the Author
Classically and jazz trained, rock ‘n’ roll schooled, award winning, multi-instrumentalist, Geoffrey Fitzhugh Perry, has developed into a world class master improviser and educator through his diverse experiences in nearly all imaginable styles of music over the past 30 plus years as a professional.
Most noted thus-far for his work with the virtuosic instrumental rock group Gamalon (MCA/Amherst Records highlights include a #8 Billboard Jazz Chart showing, performing at the prestigious Newport Jazz Festival, and recording and touring with sax great Ernie Watts), he has also recorded and toured with Nashville New-Age guitarist Paul Carrol Binkley, been seen on ESPN as Buffalo Sabres “Fiddleman!”, and released two solo recordings as Fitzhugh and the Fanatics, “Blue Standards” and “Flavor” (on HotWings Entertainment), as well as a recording (2013) of electronica/violin music with producer/drummer Darrell Nutt called “Conflation.” 2008 saw his major symphony orchestra debut as a member of the award-winning gypsy jazz group Babik in a full symphonic show of the music of Django Reinhardt.
Born and raised, in the Buffalo, NY area, he was an in-demand part of the music community there, being inducted in the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame in 2004. Currently Geoff is living in the Gainesville, FL area with wife Elizabeth.
