Jeff Levy left us just shy of his 65th birthday after a lengthy illness.

Born April 12th, 1956 in Torrance CA, to Walter Bernard Levy, Helen Lawanda Levy (Killion)

Jeff is survived by his Sister Cheryl Briggs of Garden Grove.

From his earliest days Jeff was a lover of music. Many hundreds (if not thousands) of people can trace their musical tastes to the influence Jeff had on them.

Jeff attended UCSB for short period of time and then settled in Isla Vista. As the long-term manager of Morninglory Music in Isla Vista Jeff was well known and well loved by his friends and acquaintances. Jeff performed regularly at Borsodi’s Coffee House where he also helped book musical acts as well many bands including The Hurricane Band and The Scratch & Sniff Review.

After the demise of The Record stores and Morninglory Jeff made his way to downtown Santa Barbara where he continued to make many friends. Jeff helped bring some great musical talent to town including Bill Kirchner of Commander Cody fame (guitar on Hot Rod Lincoln) in addition to performing himself. For Jeff, the only thing that came close to equaling his love of music was his love of the Lakers and Dodgers.

Above all Jeff loved Live Music and was often on road trips to catch his favorite acts, especially NRBQ (The World’s Greatest Bar Band). He collected many more loving friends along his travels.

A memorial will be held at 12 noon on Saturday, May 15th, at 33 South La Patera Lane (near Goleta Amtrak).
