Sadly, another local musician has done wrong and will be paying the price soon. A bunch of us use to go to Docks and watch this guy play with his jazz band on Thursday nights back in the day with his wife on vocals and a host of musicians including horn players, drums, bass and him on piano. Jeffrey Holmes apparently stole nearly $430,000 of public money while he was an exec for the Public Health Unit. Now kids, should I be light on this guy? He admitted to taking the money so I'm just letting everyone know. Don't shoot the messenger. Obviously he let his fingers do the talking and it got him in trouble. Ironically, he's a talented piano player, just not a good thief.
Here's the news article on Jeffrey Holmes, jazz pianist and thief.
