All-Star Jeff Golub Memorial Concert Sells Out

By , Editor | The Jazz Line

Last week, in the wake of news that Jeff Golub passed away after succumbing to a rare disease called Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (or “PSP”), it was announced that an All-Star Memorial Benefit Concert was being held in the late jazz guitarist’s honor.

Now, testament to the impact Golub had on people’s lives, we’ve just learned that tickets to the event have completely sold out after only a few days on sale.

The concert is being arranged by Marquee Concerts and Smooth Jazz New York to raise money for Golub’s family. The effort to merely diagnose his condition marred the latter part of Golub’s life with significant financial burden; and the concert will aim to ease that burden for those he is survived by – His wife Audrey Stafford and his two sons Chris and Matthew

Taking place at the B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York City on Wednesday, January 21 the event will see the likes of Mindi Abair, Richard Elliot, Dave Koz, Rick Braun, Randy Brecker, Henry ButlerChuck LoebKirk Whalum, and many more come together to celebrate Golub’s life, and his musical contributions.

Although tickets are no longer available online, any available tickets will cost $55 on the day of the show, if you’d still like to chance it.

If you weren’t fast enough to grab a ticket to the show, you can still help Jeff’s family by donating here.
