Theme parks work hard to deliver a consistent and appealing experience for their visitors. While many visitors would have trouble articulating how the music supports or detracts from their experience, it is an integral part of their visit. Jeff has the ability to embed his work seamlessly into each park by staying consistent with each theme and feel.
Scoring for film, theater or custom production requires being attuned to the emotion of each scene. Jeff pays careful attention to the mood of each scene to ensure the desired feel delivered throughout.
The music accompanying your corporate event helps define your identity to your clients and employees. By working closely with you and your event staff, Jeff will deliver a soundtrack that complements and solidifies your corporate identity.
For artists looking to record their unique artistry, Whirlwind Productions, Inc is here to record and master your project. Whether a single track or an entire album, WPI will complement your project by providing a wide variety of services creating a finished product you’ll be proud of.
Your project or event shouldn’t be put on hold due to a missed deadline. Jeff’s attention to detail and ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously ensures that your project will not be delayed due to the music being behind schedule. Jeff values those he works with and knows the importance of meeting target dates.
Over the 30 years of working with Jeff Smith, as a part of Kings Productions, Jack Rouse Associates and Moening Presentation Group, I’ve found that he is a truly special individual in the music industry. He is one of the most talented people I’ve ever worked with, he has all the tools a producer could ever want and Jeff has mastered all musical styles.
During the creative process, he offers a wonderful combination of talent with tasteful musical styles and transitions with intelligent writing, arranging and playing. And it’s important to know that his music is inspired and always fun. At Moening Presentation Group (MPG) we believe Jeff is arguably one of the most talented music directors, writers and arrangers in the country at this time! Whether we’re creating a full Broadway-style production with full orchestra or need underscore music for a corporate video, he’s our go-to guy. He delivers on time, on budget and on target!
Throughout our twenty - two year professional relationship, Jeff’s dedication to delivering musical excellence on all projects has been an indispensable asset. His skill as musician on every level is remarkable and the quality product he consistently delivers is outstanding. I feel fortunate every time I have the opportunity to collaborate!
Jeff Smith’s orchestrations are fresh and contemporary - and beautifully created. Mark and I feel very lucky to have Jeff’s imaginative orchestrations showcasing and complementing our many musicals. His ability to orchestrate in any style – from pop to rock – from country to classical – adds the perfect musical touch to any song we compose. His unique musical touches and instrument choices bring out both the mood and intent of each song and character - whether thoughtful and reflective, whimsical and funny or big production pieces. We highly recommend Jeff for any orchestral project – from live symphonic works to orchestrated scores and arrangements for vocalists to masterfully digitally created orchestrations in his studio.

I wanted to send you a quick note of appreciation for your work on our most recent production show. It got me thinking about how long we have been working together and all the music you have produced for me in my various executive roles at Paramount Parks and now with Herschend Family Entertainment.
Every time I’ve reached out to you for creative or production or to music direct our shows, you have done an outstanding job, high quality production…I would be remiss if I didn’t say all of the shows we have produced together are better because you have been a part of their creation and you have been a great partner to me for almost 20 years.
Since you were brought on to partner on our Lasershow Spectacular creative and music production, the ratings and guest satisfaction scores have continually improved making it one of our highest rated products on park and obviously making the over 1 million guests that see it every very pleased.
Thank you for sharing your creative genius and your continued partnership over the years and for the years to come.
