Anyone who has ever had the privilege of meeting Jeffrey Marshall would say that he is probably one of the most unique people you will ever meet. He has already lived a lifetime, and his soul’s purpose is to share that with people from all walks of life.
Born three months premature and with a severe disability, he was given a very low chance of survival. Jeffrey was given up for adoption and six weeks later was introduced to the Marshall family. His new family showered him with love and affection as if he was their own, and Jeffrey was destined to live.
Jeffrey always wanted to play music and began practicing bass guitar with his high school buddies after school. From the moment he touched the instrument, he knew playing music would be something that he would do for the rest of his life. Jeffrey quickly became, "the guy that plays the bass guitar with his feet."
Jeffrey continues to work on film and music projects, as well as doing public speaking engagements throughout America, Europe, and Asia. Even with everything Jeffrey has accomplished in his life, if you ask him if he plans to slow down in the future, he simply replies, “I’ve only just begun!”
WHEELCHAIR SPORTS CAMP
Combining humor, playfulness, radical political perspectives, compassion and undeniable musical chops, Wheelchair Sports Camp is Denver's biggest smallest band.
Fronted by the wheelchair using, rap heavy, beat-making, freedom fighting producer, educator, foul mouthed, queer rebel rouser Kalyn, the band is a combination of live and electronic instruments with a more noisy, jazzy, experimental, combination to the traditional hip-hop group. Raised by the DIY (Do It Yourself) spirit of experimental independence, the band has since relied on interdependence in order to stretch into theatre, performance art, public television, politics, prison tours, permanent installations, and more to come.
