Your lovely accordion hymns were the perfect prelude for Z & M's wedding at the Hermitage - Cabin by the Spring. What a beautiful setting and meaningful message. Thanks for the memory! You were perfect!

HI! Jeff, saw your website thinking about you lately. How are you? I am about the same. I'm trying to get back to playing again, and I've got five new songs basically written. My Parkinson's is about the same. I remember I still owe you for that crazy session (that guy got away with a bunch of money from me and two other guys! How could I have been so short sided!) Anyway, I will get every bit of it square with you one of these days -sooner than later-; GOD bless you for overlooking my poor judgement. May if you're in town, feel free to call me -if you have time- -I know you're always flying in a rush when you come to the city, no doubt. Well, I hope you doing great. Take care. I'm staying with my folks at present (816) 246-6823 or text me at 816-482-6571. I enjoyed your music very much! Talk to you. Your friend and brother in the Christ, Tim Morris

Hi - I work at KC Hospice and it has been a delight getting to know your mother. She gave me one of your CD's, after telling her what a huge music fan I am. It's really good! I listen to all different genres, and am still happily reeling from seeing Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band Saturday night here in Kansas City. By the way, the E Street Band has 2 accordion players.

Jazz and Rock and Latin on a real accordion.
I don't like those SanoVox or Chordovox players.

Hi, Jeff! Was e-mailed re: 2010 Convention of the National Accordion Association, and discovered that you were going to be there. (I get e-mails from them, but don't have time to go, since I teach full-time here in Houston). I did some research, anyway, and found out that you've made quite a name for yourself! I always knew that you were going to do something of import with your music, back when we used to be acquainted through Carlono School and the UMKC Conservatory. I'm about to retire after 19 years of being a bilingual teacher, and you are a famous jazz musician. How time flies, and how things change or, in your case, get better!--Joyce (Goodrich) Rios

Oh my gosh, Jeff Lisenby!! We played together at the Conservatory of Music with Joann as our director. I sat behind you next to Larry Manica, remember him?? We went to competitions and we would practice in our rooms. You even played at my wedding. Please e-mail me so we can catch up. Looks like I have alot of catching up on you with all of your success.

Just played your "Spy in Tortuga" disc. I played the acccordion many years ago as a child. Haven't played in years and never was good at it! Enjoyed your music. I love jazz and soft jazz. I'm sure Doris will let me know if you ever have a concert in Kansas City. Best wishes, Dorothy Finlay

Wow.....I decided to google "Jeff Lisenby" and look what popped up!! I'm in awe....that I took eleven years of accordion lessons from you! (from age 7 to 19)
Very nice website.......can't wait to show my son! (very much into jazz)
February 16, 2009
Very nice site. I enjoy your webcam the most. Beautiful scenery! Keep up the great work.
November 12, 2008
I am so very impressed with your new jazz CD. I remember you as one of the most talented students I have had the privilege of working with during my four decades of teaching. In addition to that talent, is your ever-ingratiating demeanor and friendly disposition. God Bless You Jeff!
September 1, 2008
I always thought you were the greatest, now after hearing your new CD I know I underestimated your total virtuosity. Best of wishes.
August 13, 2008
Hello. Your Site is good. I like your accordion music.
June 11, 2008
As always, I love your music and am looking forward to getting my own CD's so I can listen for hours. Jeff I have always loved the accordian sounds and as a matter of fact I recorded a tune on one of Gaylord Klancnik's last CD's--Romie with an accordian--I felt so at home! I look forward to doing some Italian tunes with you! I am really sorry I want be able to attend your Preston Hotel performance--the old "gig" has me out that night. I know I am going to miss something most special. Stay healthy, in touch and with the very best of wishes I remain.
PS SUPER WEB SITE!

It's a great thing when so much success happens for one of the truly good guys. I love the video with Jaclyn. How fun is that!! And it was so good seeing you and Pam. Hey, did Jonathan do the graphics on this site? I love them.
By the way, you make the accordion sound very hip.

Did you used to compete at AFNA back in the 1970s??? I started playing in 1975 and looked up to all the "older" kids who competed.......it's great you are doing so well! Accordions rule! Best wishes - "Gee" www.myspace.com/geerabe

Quite impressive for such a young man!! You've lived 3 lifetimes by your music credits.
I enjoyed working with you at The Temple last week. Would you be interested in doing a trio at my home studio with Conni Elisor? Let's discuss how much you would charge per song if you have the time.
I would like to set up a website like this. Who did this for you?

I talked to Mark Sidener last year in Las Vegas and he said you were doing well in Nashville - I see that's true! Quite a resume! Just wanted to say hello..
January 14, 2008
I always knew you would become the "Mavericks Surfrider" champion of the musical wave variety. It's wonderful to be able to enjoy your passion and perfection of your music from afar via your website. I wish I were in Kansas City this week to enjoy your performances, yet I am going to purchase one of your CDs so I can enjoy your songs fully from my locale here in San Francisco/Oakland. Take good care, and have fun! It's knowing friends like you who help keep my writing and singing well-grounded and evolving, and thanks for giving us a glimpse into the crystal ball back in '70 towards what wonders you've accomplished!
P.S. I'm hoping to finish my 2nd CD, "Into The Path Of An Oncoming Life" sometime early this summer.
Take good care, and here's to a wonderfully creative '08!

Dude! Thanks for keeping me on your mailing list. I wish I could get to the concert on the 17th. FYI, I'll be moving later this month to South Bend IN, so if you ever come to visit or play at Notre Dame, look me up.

Your mom and I went to school in Emporia and have been friends for years. I have been interested in your career for years!! I played each one of the "clips" and am very impressed.
November 27, 2007
I still need some lessons, Jeff. When are you going on another cruise? I am definitely interested. Good seeing your picture but haven't you gotten older???? Loved talking with Jaclyn - I was amused when she said, Oh, I've heard lots of John Witt stories. Hope all is well w/ you. I am feeling super. Would love to make it to Nashville someday. Does your sister still live here in FL? Come see me. Congrats on all your success but the thing that thrills me most is that you are still faithful to the Lord and have reared your family in His way. Tell Ed and Polly Bates at Brentwood hello - give them my email and find out if they have one. JW

Hi, Jeff! Your music is wonderful and unique, and the website is beautiful. (And you obviously did a great job raising your kids!)
Wish I could be at the release party, but it's youth basketball practice and a school night. Remember those days?
November 20, 2007
Love the new C.D.....and we are so proud of you, sorry we missed you on our way through Nashville.
You always amaze us with your talent. Always knew you would do great things with your music as we enjoyed your playing for us when you were a young child!
Congrats on the new C.D!!!

Take care. It was wonderful finding you after all these years.

A beautiful website for a wonderful musician whose brilliant performance augments the accordion!!
I loved the new CD, A Spy in Tortuga. Here is a disc of jazz fully contemporized plus inspired compositions, compounded by incredible musicianship. Bravo!
