Formed by Doug "Cosmo" Clifford and Stu Cook, two of the founding members of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Creedence Clearwater Revisited plays classic hits such as "Fortunate Son," "Bad Moon Rising," "Proud Mary," "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" and many more. The two are joined by lead singer/rhythm guitar player John Tristao (formerly of the band People), lead guitarist Kurt Griffey (who's toured with members of the Eagles, Foreigner and more) and multi-instrumentalist Steve Gunner. What started as a plan to perform at private parties has turned into almost 20 years of touring to enthusiastic crowds. The band even released an album, "Recollection," in 2008 featuring their version of CCR songs. Fans of CCR and classic rock will love hearing the band's hits live with the same energy they had back in the day. Joining Creedence Clearwater Revisited is Robert Randolph & The Family Band, who have an upbeat, soul/funk/gospel sound. Randolph was also named one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time by Rolling Stone. Learn More
