Big Jeff

For 20 years now, “Big Jeff” DeSmedt has been your local family entertainer. He’s performed thousands and thousands of shows for children at preschools, libraries, restaurants and birthday parties across New Jersey and the greater metro area. He’s played several shows every year for the Summer Reading Program at the New York Public Library since 2003. He’s played three times at the Quick Chek Balloon Festival, alongside the Beach Boys, Michael McDonald, and Blues Traveler. He’s sold over 10,000 CDs, made many area radio appearances, and he’s the winner of the 2009 Hoboken Music Award for Children’s Music and the 2004 Children’s Music Web Award for a Classic Recording.

Jeff began making music for young children while he was driving a bus for a special needs daycare in Morris County, NJ. Having two daughters of his own also inspired him to write songs and develop routines that engage children’s minds, voices, and dancing feet. “The Orange Song,” “Big Pterodactyl in the Sky” and “Land of the Bouncy People” are well-known to young ones across the NY metro area. And at 6’6” tall, “Big Jeff” is the BIGGEST children’s music act there is!
