Jeff “J.D.” Durant, Jr.
Born, March 10, 1975 in Gainesville, Florida. Born into a musical family, took interest in the drums and started playing at the tender age of 5. Growing up I’ve had many influences, but the one whom I look up to as a big brother and get advice from is Jeremy Haynes. I thank God and my Savior Jesus Christ, for trusting me with this gift. It is through this gift that I have been able to travel to places I probably would have never gone. God opened many doors for me to play with such Gospel recording artist as Byron Cage, O’Landa Draper, Kim Burrell, and The Fantastic Violinaires just to name a few. I also had the privilege to play with Rock n Roll legend Bo Diddley, whom I grew to know and love.
I am currently working with “No Joke”, which is a Christian Rock/Funk Band. This band consists of a group of professional musicians from different musical backgrounds with the potential of being a force in the industry.
Soultone cymbals are like none other.....words can't describe the rich tone of these cymbals!
