Fridays at the Hood Presents Volker Strifler + Mark Karan's Buds


Price $15 – $20 USD + BF Get Tickets

Event description

German-born guitarist-singer Volker Strifler plays with a rare blend of fire, restraint and clarity. His creative style is rooted in the Blues but offers innovative explorations into Rock, Jazz, and Latin rhythms, with several stops in New Orleans along the way! The pace can be fast and raucous or laid back and down home, but most of all - it’s FUN!

Seeing Volker and his band perform live is a truly great experience. All but very few of the songs in their repertoire are original songs written by Volker. His combined talents as a guitar player and singer, but also as a songwriter set him apart from the crowd.
In 1996 Volker recorded his fledgling solo release titled ‘FULL MOON’ then in 2002 released his eponymous first SOLO CD, THE VOLKER STRIFLER BAND on Blue Rock’It records to great reviews. It is compiled of mostly originals and showcases his talents as a player, singer, and songwriter. The release of his third solo CD ‘THE DANCE GOES ON’ showed just how gifted Strifler is as a guitar player, singer, songwriter as well as producer. As proof, the CD was added to play lists in numerous radio markets throughout the United States and abroad, including the legendary WWOZ in New Orleans, San Francisco’s KPFA, Santa Cruz’s KPIG. Volkers most recent releases LET THE MUSIC RISE contains more eclectic selections
