The Connor Party hails from backgrounds as diverse as their song list. Jeff Connor grew up in the Finger Lakes region of New York. He did have some formal training on guitar…he was kicked out of his only guitar lesson after about fifteen minutes and was taken under the musical wing of his brother who also taught him piano and enough music theory to teach himself the rest. Through his father and brother, Jeff was immersed in the works of Bob Dylan, John Prine and Lou Reed and learned every song available to him by the iconic singer/songwriters. After attending Cornell University in Ithaca, Jeff found a cozy home in his Ford Ranger and earned a living playing music on the street all over the country. He eventually landed in Lake Tahoe, California in 2011 because of his love for lakes and skiing were both to be found in abundance there. One winter through Kirkwood Mountain he met John Munroe…

 

John was born in Salem, Massachusetts in the season of the witch. He started playing guitar at age eleven fueled by his dads eclectic music collection, which was always blaring in his childhood home. As sounds of Guns N Roses, Hendrix and Zeppelin filled the air, John got more proficient on his guitar, and started playing in the band, Lush Puppies. In between long days working on the lobster boats, and long nights playing in the clubs, John’s mind would look ahead to Winter and to his second passion: Skiing powder in the Sierra Nevada. After attending Berklee School of Music in Boston, John headed to Lake Tahoe as a ski patroller at Kirkwood Resort. 

 

The musical chemistry shared by Jeff and John was immediately apparent and they started playing around Lake Tahoe as The Connor Party. Jon Gardner joined them on the drums shortly thereafter. Jon, also hailing from New England originally, has a love for mountain biking and punk rock but enjoys a wide range of music. If he's not on his drum throne he's most likely biking up and down any mountain he can in the Tahoe basin. Tommy Ciccone, originally from Philadelphia is the latest addition to the band on the bass guitar. He has years of experience in the music industry and two cute puppies. His sound completes the full band lineup of The Connor Party. Still fueled by a love of authentic music, fresh powder and of all things regarding life in the mountains, you’ll find them applying their passions to their lives, and kicking sonic ass all over Lake Tahoe and beyond!
