Since 2008 BLUZAPALOOZA has brought a touch of home to thousands of our men and women in uniform stationed all over the world.

Steve Simon is now trying to bring these world-class Blues concerts to our troops who are in military hospitals and at military bases right here in the states. 

This is a huge undertaking and he needs your help! Please go to the website link below to see how you can help make this a reality.

And, if you know someone who you think would also be interested, please send them the link to the website too. 

Thank you for your continued support.   

   

 

 

 

 

MUSIC

PRESS
"Strifler plays with the clarity and drive of Duane Allman."  — Robert Feuer, BluesWax and Blues Revue
"Volker plays with a perfect blend of fire and restraint, not needing to say it all with each solo. We already knew he was a uniquely talented guitarist. On “Let The Music Rise”, he shows himself to be an equally impressive songwriter, singer and arranger. "  — Jay Scheffler, Boston Blues Blog
"Whether he is fronting the Ford Blues Band or his own outfit, or touring as a side man with Robben Ford, Volker Strifler is a talent one cannot ignore. This is his third solo release and shows just how gifted he is as a guitar player, singer and songwriter. In the Blues world he is one of the few artists who truly is both original and rooted "  — Amazon, UK
"Every track is terrific. Great Voice, Great guitar, Great songs. Catch him live if you can, HE'S EVEN BETTER (scarey good!)"  — 62deluxe
"Though not exactly a household name (yet), Volker Strifler should be. A longtime associate of the Ford brothers (Robben, Patrick & Mark), he proved his mettle as guitarist & singer a long time ago but here he delivers the complete package. Superb lyrics & vocals, diverse sounds, skill as a producer, as well as fretwork. This may be the breakthrough album of the year. Those requiring any convincing will find all they need in the funky Allman Bros-like Going to Brownsville, the breezy Redemption with its Island strains & gusto of a Barenaked Ladies tune, or the slow, New Orleans style blues of It's Getting Late; There’s also a creeping, Beatles-esque take on Fleetwood Mac's Jigsaw Puzzle Blues (w/tuba), one of two instrumentals, the other being the whirling country tones & sound effects of Hoogie Boogie. The gritty Wait a Minute & driving, Allman-sounding title track Let the Music Rise are nothing short of instant classics. "  — Mike Rick, Blues Power Blog
