Call Blitzcreek to see if there is way that we can help.
What are we all about?
Blitzcreek was formed in 2012 when some dear friends passed away suddenly. This brought friends together as family to deal with the mess of emotions and heartache that was left behind.
We found our way through music. LIVE MUSIC! Since then, we have become a full 501c3 Non Profit group dedicated to promoting live music and using that to benefit local charities and those in need of a little extra help.
We have taken in traveling musicians from all over the world including, Royal Bliss, Bobaflex, The American Hitmen (Americas Got Talent), October Rage (Australia) and countless others to give them a home away from home and get them booked on gigs all over the United States of America. Some of our favorites have sprung up as unknowns that are now building a following and beginning to believe that they have what it takes to make it big including, BLACK STAR ALLIANCE, DIVINION and FLEX, just to name a few. Hell, even Slap N Tickle have graced our presence with their musical talents.
After the Flood of 2016 Blitzcreek and the BlitzCrew came together, put out our own money, time and efforts to put on 14 bands in a single day with 2600 paying visitors in attendance to help out with the #NOBO Flood relief. The Forgotten Four were 4 businesses left behind the flood barriers that the city had erected. The lost time of business and damages caused by the flood left them and their employees down a bit. But knowing our community, and how Music can heal the soul, we succeeded in putting on those bands, on time, without a hitch as well as assisting with the many other facets of putting on such a festival. We helped them with our experience and with our staff.
In 2016, we also put on our FINAL BASH on the Blitzcreek Grounds. Last year on November 14th, 2015 a dark day fell upon our happy little family of about 80 people. BJ Taylor, the Founder of Blitzcreek, passed away after suffering from a Heart Attack and waiting for a transplant. The final bash was 19 bands over 2 days with thousands in attendance. “This one’s for you BJ” was the theme and we sent him off in a way that even we couldn’t have imagined. We heard rumors that Lemmy Kilmister moved in his grave trying to get out to come to the show, but those were only rumors and never proven to be true. But we believe they are true.
