A Special Benefit Music Festival will be held to help Mr. Jak Kelly, a prominent folk singer/songwriter, now living in Spring Hill, FL. who has recently undergone surgery, pay his medical expenses.
Friends of Jak Kelly will be hosting a live music festival on July 27th, 28th and 29th, 2012 at The Farm, 19234 Lake Lindsey Rd., Brooksville, FL 34601. What started as a small benefit to help out a friend in need has blown into a concert of epic proportions. Over 35 of the finest Folk musicians from all across Florida have agreed to participate in this fund-raiser. We are calling it THUMBZILLA, in honor of the lost appendage that has side-tracked Jak.

In my long life I thought I’d met just a couple angels,
I guess I was wrong
You all here together at one time proves it.
I am blessed.
When I had my accident, I was at the lowest point in my life.
I couldn’t work, I couldn’t even tie my shoes or button my fly.
You go through life taking a little thing like a thumb for granted.
And if you are unfortunate enough to lose part of one you are forced to
Re-learn how to do just about everything,
Well, my shoes are tied, my fly is buttoned.
My next and biggest challenge is to figure out how I can
Play my music again. And I will!
I am totally blown away by this gathering of angels.
I never knew I’d made so many friends!
Who’d a thunk it?
I thank you more than my words can express.
I AM BLESSED!!! – Jak Kelly
