CLEARWATER CREEDENCE REVIVAL – ‘live’!
The best tribute to CCR you’re ever going to see.
2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of the legendary Woodstock Festival. Along with Santana, Ten Years After, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, The Who, Janis Joplin and a host of other iconic, or soon-to-be iconic artists, was Creedence Clearwater Revival. Five decades on, the spirit, power and quality of their iconic songs, – ‘Proud Mary, ‘Bad Moon Rising’, ‘Have You Ever Seen The Rain’ and more are powerfully reprised with Clearwater Creedence Revival – along with material from CCR frontman, John Fogerty – most recently seen on tour with ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons.
“ Clearwater Creedence Revival do themselves “Proud” (‘…Mary’). The vocalist is a big, bearded fella with a lovely, gravelly voice and he guides us through some classic Country stylings and soothes many a hungover head. ‘Bad Moon Rising’, ‘Have You Ever Seen The Rain’ and ‘I Put A Spell On You’, amongst others, make not being able to get to the bar more bearable, and in a world seemingly overrun with Creedence bands, this lot can hold their heads high above the rest.“ (ROCKTOPIA, Giants of Rock review)
Selling out at venues all over the world, Clearwater Creedence Revival feature road-hardened players who, collectively have performed with – Stax legend Steve Cropper, Big Country, Denny Laine (Wings, Moody Blues), Eric Haydocks Hollies, Animals And Friends, Alan Silson (Smokie), Wayne Fontana’s Mindbenders and more.
PETER BARTON – vocals, guitar (Animals And Friends, Trevor Burton Band (The Move), The Boomtown Rats (Roberts & Crowe), etc)
ALAN SAGAR – bass
GRAHAM POLLOCK – guitar
GEOFF HAMMOND – drums
Together, they are the best ‘tribute’ to CCR & Fogerty you’re ever likely to see!
“The band took us on a melodic and spirited romp through the Fogerty songbook and related material. There were plenty of spontaneous singalong moments, it being hard to resist the choruses of ‘Have You Ever Seen The Rain’, ‘Bad Moon Rising’, opener ‘Proud Mary’, the choppy swamp rock of Green River. I was pleased they included ‘Fortunate Son’ and the propulsive ‘Run Through The Jungle’ – puffing harp break and all, but maybe the best received song was the old folk tune ‘Cottonfields’. Every member of this crew plays the numbers with a crisp style that reeks of experience but moreover love. ‘Born On The Bayou’ captured the classic CCR voodoo vibe. No pseudo Yankee chat, just the songs delivered with a friendly relish” (Pete Sargeant, Under The Bridge, Chelsea review)
