Jeff Duncan, a fixture of the Los Angeles hard rock and heavy metal scene for more than 3 decades will be relocating his residency to Las Vegas later this month. Duncan, considered a veteran guitar virtuoso, is excited about his move to Sin City. “This move is just what the doctor ordered,” says Duncan. “My passion in life is, and has always been playing music. I will continue to be very involved with my bands, Armored Saint and DC4, but I will now have the ability to play and teach music for a living during down times with my current bands. Las Vegas offers this opportunity, along with an affordable cost of living. LA has been very good to me, but I am looking forward to the change”


Duncan will join a long list of hard rock/heavy metal musicians who call Las Vegas home including; Vince Neil (Motley Crue), Vinnie Paul (Pantera, Hellyeah), Jake E. Lee (Ozzy Osbourne, Badlands) Jimmy Crespo, (Aerosmith), Ron Keel (Steeler, Keel), Brent Muscat (Faster Pussycat), Oz Fox (Stryper), Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot, King Kobra) and others. “Although I am making the move by myself, I have many friends and acquaintances in Las Vegas, all who have been very supportive, encouraging, and welcoming. I’m excited to get to work.”


The official announcement of Duncan’s move was not supposed to be made public until November 1st, but the cat was let out of the bag recently when Duncan sat in with Las Vegas favorite, the Sin City Sinners. “Zack Throne with the Sin City Sinners and I have been friends for decades.” says Duncan. “After we played a couple songs together, he told the crowd prematurely that I had moved to Las Vegas. It was one of those ‘oops’ moments. I had a blast with those guys, and hope to jam with them again soon.”


One of his first orders of business will be relocating his guitar school to Las Vegas. “It’s a very satisfying thing to watch someone’s progression on the guitar, and know that you had a hand in getting them there” says the guitar whiz. “Jeff’s Planet Guitar School did awesome in LA. We offer reasonable rates, and unparalleled personal attention. I think that it will be a home run in Las Vegas.”
