Healey's Hideaway DIST
Jeff Healey,a true Canadian, born and raised in Etobicoke,ON , was a blind guitar player who never let his physical challenges stand in his way.
His career started when he was still a teenager performing with his high school band and later, performing on his own around the city at any Blues club that would let him play. Before he knew it, he was already touring across Canada when his first band formed –”The Jeff Healey Band”. Soon after ,his career peaked and Hollywood called him. He made it. Signing his first record deal with Arista /Clive Davis, helped Jeff shape his career and his name now was known around the world.
The breakup of the “Jeff Healey Band” made Jeff decide he wanted to open a Blues Club in Toronto where he would be able to invite guest artists and play any kind of music he’d like.
The club had legendary musicians gracing the stage. It also allowed Jeff play the music he was most passionate about-Traditional Jazz from the 1920's & 30's.
The movie tells the story of the Jeff Healey club ,the A- list musicians who played there and of course the amazing talent that Jeff had as a Blind Musician who never let his disability stop him from doing what he loved most -Music.
With interviews with Cristie Healey, Randy Bachman , Burton Cummings,Ronnie Hawkins,The Jazz Wizards, Tony Springer and rare live performance footage from the club with Jeff Healey, Ian Gillan and others.
