Jeff Buckley “Grace Around the World DVD” Release Party and
“For the Love of Buckley” Tribute Show Recap: Bravo! News Video
Once again, the Rivoli was the venue for the annual Toronto celebration
of the life and music of the late Jeff Buckley. This year’s event
included a special DVD/CD release party, including special guest, Mary
Guibert, to commemorate the release of “Grace Around the World”
(SONY/Legacy) on June 2, 2009. In fact, this party was the world
premier of the screening/listening party for the new release.

Producer and coordinator, Catherine Harrison, PurpleVoodooProductions,
was thrilled with this year’s turnout.“We continue to be amazed and
inspired by the people who participate in our celebrations. The
ambiance in the room is always so positive and collaborative. Once
again, we had local and international artists share their stories
and interpretations of Jeff’s music…it was a beautiful evening!”

Special thanks to Sony Canada for supplying copies of the new release
that were raffled off to lucky attendees throughout the night, and
to BRAVO!News for covering the event.

Like previous events, all ticket proceeds will be donated to our
charities of choice: locally, the Regent Park School of Music, a
non-profit organization that provides music instruction and access
to instruments to underprivileged kids in the area, and Road Recovery.

Performers included Catherine Harrison (with special guests Richard
Scarsbrook and Nicole Sigouin), David Ward, Mike Borgia, Craig Browne,
Rosita Stone, Sonny Boy Mick, Jay Merc, Ray Montford and Brillian Fish,
Brad Gradner, Josh Gontier, and Robert Haley.
