Hello fellow babies!
The weekend has flown by and I am still in full on recovery mode! Of course I’m talking about Jeff Healey: A 50th Celebration – May 27th at the Grand Old Lady of Shuter Street, Toronto’s LEGENDARY Massey Hall…
What an phenomenal night… an absolutely incredible audience (honestly, the loudest, most enthusiastic I’ve *ever* had the pleasure of witnessing in 35 years of seeing shows there…)

…and an astounding group of talented musicians taking the stage all night long! In order of appearance; Philip Sayce, Joe Rockman, Rob Quail, Pat Rush, Jerome Godboo (JHB Alumni), Dean Glover, Shakura S’Aida, Chris Caddell, Stan Miczek, Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh, The Trews, Sonny Landreth, Walter Trout, Randy Bachman, Albert Lee… and then *all* of them on stage at once to perform ‘See The Light’!

Ta quote The Rovers, “Wasn’t that a party?”. Damn straight. There will still be a proper wrap up coming, I promise… But I won’t stop thanking all of the above mentioned, plus Gary Scrutton who ran his ass ragged all night as a one-man tech machine, the *terrific* folks at IATSE Local 58 who bent over backwards for us, the unbelievable staff at Massey who made us feel so welcome and the fantastic Patrick Florin, without whom we couldn’t have made this happen…
Thank You one and all.
I’ll be back with all the deets very soon!

I always feel so emotional when I watch this type of performance. It seems to me that the humanity spills over into my heart. Just looking at the photo made me smile, just imagine when I hear the art performed!!!!
Loved every moment. Good to see old and new players. Great Blues by all. TY Cristie again for a job well done. Will get that DVD when all is done.
Hey Roj.Must have been one hell of a Night.Hoping it will come out on Vid at some point.thanks for all that you do mate.’Tecka’
Was it recorded? Will it be shown somewhere or heard on radio? Or better yet, can we buy a copy of the recording? I’m living in Quebec city and would’ve loved to be there, but a recording is the next best thing.
I have been a fan of Jeff for yrs.
I am blind also.
His music has been very inspiring to me. I will always remember him.
I would so love to buy a copy if it was recorded! Wish I could have been there in person!!
Honoured to have attended . Thx so much Roger .. You did him proud !!
