Jeff McDonald taught himself to play guitar in 1964, then performed with several rock and roll bands in New Jersey ('The Paupers' and 'The Neighbor's Children'), Pennsylvania ('The Grass Menagerie') and Florida ('Abeldine') throughout his high school and college years. Acoustic music with the duo 'McMuffin' followed while in Boston during the early 70's, performing at area coffee houses and clubs.
