Canadian Blues legend Jeff Healey was a remarkable talent best known for his phenomenal abilities on the guitar. Despite being blind, Healey never let physical challenges stand in his way. As a teenager, he began performing with his high school band in Etobicoke, Ontario, before playing around the city at any Blues club that would let him play. Before long, he began touring across Canada and around the world.
Following the breakup of The Jeff Healey Band, Jeff opened Healey’s Hideaway in Toronto, a popular Blues club where he regularly invited legendary guest artists and often took to the stage himself to play the music he was passionate about – from traditional jazz to classic rock n’ roll.
Director Eve Kinizo’s Healey’s Hideaway tells the story of the venue, including the A- list musicians who played there, and features interviews with The Jeff Healey House Band, The Jazz Wizards, Ronnie (“the Hawk”) Hawkins, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, Cristie Healey, Tony Springer, Michael White and Paul James as well as rare live performance footage from the club’s heyday, including Healey, Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), Jimmy Bowskill and many others.
