His act Jeffrey Halford and the Healers have returned to perform on a variety of upcoming shows within the California terrain among other areas they’re probably use to attending too. But it wasn’t always so high and mighty for Jeffrey, he like most musicians barely trying to make ends meat started at the bottom and had to make his way up to the top. For more than year, he played his guitar up and down the streets playing numerous crowds in Chinatown and Union Square, until the police got involved and kicked him out. This street gig sensation led him to play with the Oakland blues greatest artists Sonny Lane, Mississippi Johnny Waters, and JJ Malone in various clubs spread out within the county. But that’s not all that kept him busy he also formed his own creative musical roots making a rockabilly band, “The Snappers,” playing for students at U.C. Berkeley among other hip clubs. Music was Halfords salvation to live. He knew now that he had a taste of this lifestyle he was not going to look back on it. So as he grew up and continued to do music along the way, thus the birth of Jeffrey Halford and the Healers was said and done.
