    Jay Funk Dawg got a reaction from Booche in Best Seat In The House: My Time in the Jeff Healey Band   
    According to the book, Jeff's jumping out of his chair was an ongoing gag.  Musicians would get really close to Jeff and he'd surprise the hell out of them by jumping out of his chair and stealing the show.

    Just read the new book by drummer Tom Stephens called Best Seat In The House: My Time in the Jeff Healey Band while on vacation.  I couldn't put the book down.  There are incredible stories including a tale about getting his big break by meeting & playing with BB King at Expo '86 and a lot of anecdotes of tour antics by Jeff and the band. 
    It's a classic story of the rise to fame and playing with the best musicians in the world.  The latter part of the book is about Jeff's transition from a rock icon to a club owner and jazz trumpeter.  Jeff Healey died on March 2, 2008 from sarcoma cancer at 41 years old.
    I've been a big fan as a kid as he grew up in South Etobicoke and we would always hear stories that he jammed at local bars. I seen him play once in Halifax and it was without longtime drummer Tom Stephen who explains how his role as manager/drummer ended very poorly with Jeff.
     

    Here's my favorite song:  check out the dual guitar solo at the end.
     
    Anyone else have any thoughts on Jeff Healey?

    Ugh. This just gutted me to read this. I knew the day was coming one day but very sad. He has fought hard. His brother Brian is also a dedicated music lover and supporter. Slow deterioration is an incredibly difficult reality to be saddled with. I've known nothing but positivity and light from these guys. Humbling. My sincere love and condolences.

    Last show at Mod Club was great -
    The band was sounding great.  Great people in the audience too.
    Mark Thackaway was a highlight, as was the interplay between Rich & Mark.

    Jay Funk Dawg got a reaction from Fat Cats in Sat. Feb 3rd An Evening of Grateful Dead and Phish with Whose Cat Is Dead & A Solo Acoustic Phish Set by Rich Grossman of The Lizards   
    Illumination Presents and Flat Cat Productions Invite You to Share in an Evening of Grateful Dead and Phish with:
    Sat. Feb 3rd, 2018

    Whose Cat Is Dead
    &
    A Solo Acoustic Phish Set by Rich Grossman of The Lizards
    Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.ca/o/whose-cat-is-dead-13106232889

    Relatively new to the scene, the veteran musicians that make up Whose Cat Is Dead are really turning "heads" within the jam community. As a 4-piece act interpreting the catalog of the Grateful Dead, WCID have the luxury of musical space that comes along with a more "stripped down" approach. With a driving, powerful rhythm section, soaring keys, Jerry-like yet still fresh guitar, and some of the best 3-part harmonies in the business, this crew are quickly gaining fans new and old.

    Adam Bernstein - drums and vocals
    Kimberly Manning - key and vocals
    Mark Thackway - guitar and vocals
    Mikey Vukovich - bass and vocals

    The Lizards virtuoso guitar slinger, Rich Grossman, has been wowing crowds with the band since making their debut in November of 2013, playing sold out shows and festivals to hundreds of fans. The band’s main goal is to recreate the Phish Experience. Whether it’s their ever changing setlists, synchronized dancing (or trampoline-ing) or touring with their own lighting rig and director (TG5), the band is committed to giving people that same feeling as the one we’ve all felt many times before.

    The Lizards make it possible to gain that experience in our own backyard, with many feeling it’s been a long time coming that a band can create a community in this country for such a style of music. The Lizards intend to show everyone that they, above all things, can once again bring together a congregation of like-minded people that all want the same things: good times, good music & sore legs!

    Rich has agreed to perform a special acousitc set of Phish songs for this show. Come and see what he has up his sleeve!
     
    ***** PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO A SPONSORSHIP FROM OUR FRIENDS AT WHERE HEADS MEET IN HAMILTON THE COST OF BUSSING PLUS ADMISSION HAS DECREASED TO $30! *****

    (Tickets will be available at the door for $20)

    Jay Funk Dawg got a reaction from Booche in Horrible news for our community: RIP BradM   
    Very sad to hear about BradM's passing.
    As many of you, I know BradM through the music scene.  I've been fortunate to get to know tapers from all over the country, and consider myself a amateur taper, mostly recording the shows I produced for my own use.   It's a rare breed of people who dedicate themselves to this craft and I think it's such an admirable and selfless job.  The taping scene in Canada is so small and those few who do it really help preserve and document our Canadian culture - and above all so many memories.   
    He mailed me copies of the shows he taped but were not authorized to be uploaded to the archive.  I remember once that he wanted to check with one of the bands he taped first before burning me a copy, in spite of the fact that I was the promoter.
    Outside of his admiral dedication to taping, BradM was a sweet guy.  I spent more than a few set breaks with him outside and really enjoyed his different point of views and quirky sense of humour.  I'll always remember him enjoying a pint, standing next to his microphones at a show enjoying himself. 
    Much love BradM, I hope you are out there taping the great big gig in the sky.

    Pretty amazing show...  Marcus is a powerhouse guitarist/vocalist...  a real one of a kind soulful rocker.   My buddy Deshawn aka D'vibes played Keys and brought some funky souljazz sounds to the hard hitting Marus King Band.

    Jay Funk Dawg got a reaction from bouche in Sharon Jones RIP   
    very sad... I'd recommend to all fans to watch this movie of her cancer struggle... she's had a very challenging few years and it's really sad to hear she has passed yesterday, it obviously comes as a shock to the Soul & Funk community ...  she had a slew of dates on the books, so her condition must have changed rapidly resulting in her passing.
     
    lots of love to the Daptone Records Family... they seem to have some bad luck, Amy Winehouse recorded her album with the Dapkings, their newest release by the Frightnrs comes off the passing of their lead singer Dan “Brukky” Klein , Charles Bradley just was diagnosed with stomach Cancer, and the news yesterday about Sharon... very sad.. 
    My favorite song by Sharon has to be "How Long" - I've seen her play about 8 times, and I don't think I ever saw her do this one live...  i remember the band teased the song in an intro medley, but never played it with her singing... I always wondered if she didn't play it, either she was sick of it. or perhaps another reason?  To me this is her best known song and not playing it seemed strange, especially since she had an album called "give the people what they want"  - well I want Sharon Jones back!
