Jeff Mince

Jeff Mince hails from Colorado, and has been living in Los Angeles since 1998. Jeff has toured extensively with the Nina Hagen band throughout Europe, and currently works with several projects, including, of course, Velvet Chain.

Jeff has been working with Velvet Chain on and off for about 3 years, and has played several shows with the band.

Jeff is the drummer on Velvet Chain's upcoming new double album, "Asteroid Belt."




Jeff Mince has studied drumming and percussion extensively, and has various degrees and credits.

He began playing drums at the age of 10, and his favorite drummer is Clyde Stubblefield (James Brown's Drummer).

He is also a very nice guy and easy to work with.

Jeff Stacy thinks he's one of the best drummers in the world.






Mr. Mince is also a big expert when it comes to live triggering of samples, loops and sequences. This aspect of his talent is especially interesting to Velvet Chain, as the band uses this kind of thing a lot.
