John “Juke” Logan, a legendary blues harmonica player, suffered from his third round of esophageal cancer after an extraordinary career as a musician. If you ever watched the "Roseanne" or "Home Improvement" sitcoms, or movies like Crossroads, La Bamba or others, you have heard Juke.
In 2013, he chose the American Institute for Cancer Research as the beneficiary of a concert being held in his honor in Los Angeles, CA. The concert was held on April 14th at 5pm at Café Fais Do Do and was streamed live for $10 per ticket. The concert can be viewed live here: http://www.aicr.org/links/www-ustream-tv-channel-john-juke-logan-fundraiser.html
You can learn more about Juke on his facebook page here: http://www.aicr.org/links/www-facebook-com-JohnJukeLogan.html
Please consider making a contribution and leaving a few kind words in memory of Juke. With your donation today, AICR can continue to fund promising and innovative cancer research that will change the lives of those touched by cancer.
John Farrell Logan got his nickname by playing Little Walter's harmonica-instrumental gem, "Juke," incessantly. Rockin', multi-media-style, in the music world for over 3 decades, Juke's worked with countless major recording artists and musical trendsetters, such as Ry Cooder, Albert Collins, Leon Russell, & Los Lobos. Like attracts like.
Mocombo Records is Juke's record label.

My father had esophageal cancer and I have such great appreciation for what you have done in raising awareness. If each person on this planet did one thing (gift of time, service or sharing) in order to raise awareness... we would have the power back in the hands of the PEOPLE to find a cure.
Scientists, please find a way to break down the barriers and leave the silos -- lives depend upon your efforts, not pharma, not intellectual property, not profit, but LIVES.
May God bless you, Juke!

I was saddened to discover today of your illness. I will keep you in my daily prayers. I remember our 1st meeting at the People of Orphalese, cutting the A & D harps in half and merging them together, in your Manhattan Beach apartment, your mom, Jamming with Kid and Brother Chaos and much more. If I can assist you in any way, please contact me: at http://www.dongakdzong.com
Rest in the great bliss and luminosity of the sublime vast Wisdom Mind.
