Hi all!  Today we’re taking some time to celebrate the memory, and rich musical legacy of Jeff Healey on what would have been his 56th birthday.

Jeff was a force of nature, both in his career and his private life.  His passing left an indelible mark on all of us. After over 14 years it still feels unbelievable that he was taken from us so young.  Not quite 42…

This however, is not a day to mourn.

Things here at home seem to be cautiously moving towards a renewed sense of normalcy and tonight, for the first time since 2019, a group of friends and family will be reigniting the happy tradition of getting together on Jeff’s birthday.  We’ll share a few drinks, have a laugh or two and remember.  There will be smiles and catching-up, stories and laughter.  And I concede, maybe a couple of tears.

And with another March coming to an end we once again close off #MarchIsHealeyMonth.

As we’ve spoken about before, with March 2nd marking the anniversary of Jeff’s passing, the 25th seemed to serve well as a natural bookend to a month-long celebration.  I’m fairly confident Jeff would approve.  After all, the man did love a party.


A quick aside. Though we are still some months away from the “big announcement” we teased back in December, things are really coming together beautifully…  Stay tuned!
