The Jeff Healey Band. Artist Bio

The Jeff Healey Band was a Canadian blues-rock band led by guitarist and vocalist Jeff Healey (born Norman Jeffrey Healey on March 25, 1966 in Toronto, Canada; died March 2, 2008). Formed in 1986 in Toronto, ON, the original lineup consisted of Jeff Healey, Joe Rockman on bass, and Tom Stephen on drums.

The group played around small Toronto-area clubs for a few years before eventually signing with BMG Canada and Arista Records for the rest of the world, and releasing their debut album See The Light in 1988, which featured the top charting hits "Angel Eyes" and "See The Light".

The band played and recorded blues/blues rock-infused music along with many original-flavored covers. The band officially released five studio albums and one live recording including the sophomore Hell To Pay (1990), Feel This (1992), Cover To Cover (1995), Get Me Some (2000), and Live At Montreux 1999 (2005). There have also been some recent unofficial compilation releases without the consent of the artists.

The band performed a cameo role in the Patrick Swayze movie "Roadhouse" and they are featured in its official soundtrack.

The group split up in the late 2000, with Healey continuing performing as a solo artist and later as Jeff Healey & The Jazz Wizards playing trumpet. Healey died on March 2, 2008 after a long battle with cancer.
