Below is a note from Steve Simon.  He is one of the founders of BLUZAPALOOZA.  They have done a remarkable job of bringing the blues overseas.  He wants to get the program going stateside.

 From Steve:

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

It is now time for me 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 I need your help so please go to my website at to see how you can help me make this a reality.

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

Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to hearing from you.
