Levi's Workshop (every 2nd and 4th thursday)
Levi's Workshop (every 2nd and 4th thursday)
At "Levi's Workshop", we want to capture the relaxed feel of an after hours musician's hang, with a great house band welcoming special guests to sit in. Not a typical Blues Jam, but a place to hear a variety of styles and have players stretch with others with whom they don't normally collaborate....

Levi's Workshops are held on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month. Music lovers and musicians are encouraged to attend these free events, but participation is by invitation only.
Volker Strifler
Volker Strifler
Volker Strifler is a stunningly unique and creative guitarist who has an innate understanding of the language of music and plays with the clarity and drive of Duane Allman, which when blended with keyboards, saxophone, and trombone, become innovative explorations into rock, jazz, and Latin rhythms.

He is probably best known as the OTHER guitarist in Robben Ford's band. Though not exactly a household name (yet), Volker Strifler should be. As a longtime associate of
the famous Ford brothers (Robben, Patrick and Mark), Strifler has proven his mettle as a guitarist and singer a long time ago and has become increasingly popular on the Northern California circuit. He states "My goal is to give the listener a sense of hearing something they won't hear anywhere else."

Those requiring any convincing will find all they need in the funky Allman Brothers-like opening tune "Going to Brownsville" on his new CD Let the Music Rise which includes some splendid horns and keyboard, and then in a nice sway from the gentrification of the Blues, the breezy "Redemption" with its Island strains and all the gusto of a Barenaked Ladies tune, to the slow, New Orleans style blues of "It's Getting Late" and the Beatles-esque take on Fleetwood Mac's "Jigsaw Puzzle Blues" (with tuba!).

"Volker Strifler is a beautiful singer and a powerful guitarist" states Robben Ford. Strifler takes a risk with a freedom in his music that pushes his musicianship in an innovative direction, drawing from a broad palate of musical color to experiment with the Blues – taking the listener to the outer limits of the genre.
