.It is with great sorrow I have to announce the passing of Geoff Lloyd, AKA Corndog.




Geoff was a big part of the Vancouver music scene, as front man of The Slickjacks, he had also played bass and was a founding member of The Matthew Good band for a number of years.




Geoff was a talented and helpful guy, he headed the Cobalt renovation crew when nobody had a clue where to begin, and worked countless hours getting it open in time for Wendy13’s 06/06/06 plan. Many of us remember Geoff for his corndog sense of humor, and for how genuinely real he was- an all around great guy. He will be greatly missed.




Geoff is survived by his widow, Lisafurr Lloyd, who had also tragically lost her Mother to cancer 2 weeks earlier.




We have put together a fundraiser to bring The Slickjacks home to Vancouver, and raise funds for Lisa, and for funeral expenses.




The event will be held at The Astoria Hotel at 769 East Hastings St. on Sunday February 7th, doors open at 7 PM. or a trust fund has been set up to help Lisa at TD CANADA TRUST and deposit funds into #3292 - 301717




Please come out and show your support for Lisa in her time of need, anything you can do to help will be gratefully appreciated.




Thank you.
