Welcome dear peeps!

It’s been a hell of a year so far and we wanted to take a moment to thank you all for helping us celebrate Jeff Healey’s life and legacy in this, what would have been his 50th birthday year! We can’t do any of this without you, so in all sincerity, thank you.

So, let’s get down to it shall we? Hot off the presses… I recently had the wonderful good fortune of sitting down with our friend Danko Jones for an episode of his long running podcast. We had a great time talking about Jeff, the 50th Celebration, Heal My Soul, Philip Sayce and whatever else struck our fancy!

You can check it out for free here on iTunes or on Soundcloud

(warning, the show is NSFW-ish – a few ‘f-bombs’ get dropped over the course of the hour, so don’t be surprised!)

Next up, we are incredibly proud to announce that this coming Sunday, September 11th, Jeff is being inducted into the Mississauga Music Walk of Fame! The Walk of Fame Ceremony takes place each year during the Southside Shuffle Blues and Jazz Festival. This year, it will be at Port Credit Memorial Park, where the Southside Shuffle organizers have arranged a stage for the induction ceremony at 4PM. Jeff will be joining such music legends as Ronnie Hawkins, Oscar Petersen, Denny Doherty (of the Mamas & the Papas) and more!

It’s going to be a great afternoon and Jeff will be inducted by a very special friend of ours… Hopefully we’ll get to see some of you local cats there!
