Jeff Sipe


Aquarium Rescue Unit

Warren Haynes

Jeff Sipe (born January 31, 1959, Berlin, Germany) is an American drummer.

He is a rock and jazz fusion drummer, however, he is proficient in many other styles which he has demonstrated in his decades of drumming.

He is a founding member of Aquarium Rescue Unit along with Col. Bruce Hampton. He also played with the self-applied Cajun Slamgrass Band Leftover Salmon and in the Zambiland Orchestra, an experimental big band featuring members of Phish, Widespread Panic and others.

Currently touring in 2011 with Jeff Coffin & the Mu'tet, Sipe recently has toured with Keller Williams with Moseley, Droll and Sipe and Jimmy Herring Band. He has been said to "live for music" by Herring, who says though he and Sipe have now known each other for years, Jeff Sipe remains his first choice of any drummer around with whom to play.
