Remembering Musicians With Custom Patches

Remembering Musicians With Custom Patches

Published Oct 29, 2020 by Rick Cundiff

There’s no denying 2020 has been a rough year for music lovers, especially for those of us who are aging baby boomers. The list of greats we’ve lost this year is depressingly long.

To name just a few: Jerry Jeff Walker. Spencer Davis. Eddie Van Halen. Helen Reddy. Toots Hibbert. Betty Wright. Little Richard. John Prine.

But it’s not just us old folkies and rockers who are losing our musical idols. Younger artists are gone too, including Riley Gale of Power Trip (age 34), singer/actress Naya Rivera (33), and rising rap star Pop Smoke, just 20.

So many artists gone from our lives. The best way of course to remember them is by playing their music. Play it long and loud.

But sometimes that just doesn’t seem to be quite enough. Chances are good every one of us has at least one musician, be it Beethoven or Amy Winehouse, whose work has changed our lives. So why not take an extra step to celebrate them?

Yep, you’ve guessed by now, I’m talking about custom memorial patches. They’re a terrific way to honor your favorites in a meaningful fashion.

With today’s patch technology, you can add a patch to jackets, shirts, caps, backpacks and more. Whether embroidered, woven or printed, why not add a patch with your chosen artist(s) picture, name, or even a lyric or two? For classical fans, why not a staff with the first four notes of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony?

Especially with a denim or leather jacket, custom memorial patches are a high-visibility way to remember musicians and other artists. Lots of folks already wear memorial patches for lost friends.

Come to think of it, it’s not a bad way to honor living artists as well. Celebrate the creativity, the melody, the soul of those who make the world a more lyrical place.
