RIP: Jeff Ellis, 1956-2012

The Nippertown music community lost another long-time linchpin with the passing of Jeff Ellis earlier this week at the age of 55.

Ellis was well-known and respected by musicians throughout the Capital Region from his 25 years of service at Drome Sound (in both Albany and Schenectady) and Parkway Music in Clifton Park, where he worked for the past 13 years.

He was also a drummer, having played with countless bands during his long tenure behind the drum kit.

Calling hours will be held today from 2-4pm and from 7-9pm at the Daly Funeral Home at 242 McClellan Street in Schenectady. The funeral service will be held at 1pm on Saturday (April 7) at Our Lady of Fatima Church at 2216 Rosa Road in Schenectady.

Our condolences go out to his family and friends.
