Just found this information through Nick Colionne’s Facebook page.

Guitarist Jeff Golub has been experiencing medical issues since 2011. A degenerative eye condition has taken Jeff’s eyesight. Despite losing his vision, Jeff has continued to perform in concert and in the studio. It’s been a tough go for Jeff, as he was nearly killed in 2012 when he fell onto the New York City subway tracks. Passengers saved Jeff’s life in the nick of time. Recently, Jeff was diagnosed with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), a degenerative brain disease that is untreatable and aggressive. This medical emergency has put undo stress on Jeff’s family and will require donations to help with medical expenses.

A benefit concert will take place next month to help offset the costs of medical expenses. It takes place on January 21st at BB King’s Blues Club in New York. Guests scheduled to appear at this benefit include Mindi Abair, Rick Braun, Randy Brecker, Christopher Cross, Mark Egan, Richard Elliot, Bill Evans, Steve Ferrone, Dave Koz, Chuck Loeb, Philippe Saisse, & Kirk Whalum and many, many more.

You can purchase your tickets through the Ticketmaster or through the BB King’s Blues Club, in person or charge by phone at 800-745-3000. You can also make a monetary donation through JeffGolub.com.

Please say a prayer for Jeff and his family and by helping in any way you can.
