Jeff Barninger

Guitar, Vocals

Jeff Barninger’s musical journey is like a lyric from Bryan Adams’s Summer of ’69. Maybe more Christmas of ’66 — that’s when Jeff got his first guitar and amp. His first song was Louie Louie, next came Wipe Out and then the classic “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida”. Jeff hungered for more so in 1967 he began to take guitar lessons from Dale Fryberger and in 1969 joined Emery Frie. Jeff first jammed with now Rocker band mate, Dave Mutzabaugh in 1973. Later on Jeff bounced around in various bands including Fast Cookies and next the Jetz. 

Like many “rockers” Jeff took a vacation from music for about fifteen years to raise a family and rebuild a farmhouse. In 1999 music called him back and with the help of friend, Dale Duffy, Jeff joined Phantom Black. A few more years, a few more bands until 2015 when he joined Off Our Rockers.

Jeff’s knowledge of rock and roll is impressive as he can usually play any “rock” song from the past four decades simply from memory. A true “Rocker”.
