Clearwater Creedence Revival

CLEARWATER CREEDENCE REVIVAL at The Fleece Thu 19 September 2019 from 07:30 pm

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.

The band:

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)

The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email gigs@thefleece.co.uk for more details.
