CCRevisited ‘Rollin’ on the River’ at Artpark

Last night the free Tuesday concert series at the outdoor Artpark venue continued with a lively performance by Creedence Clearwater Revisited. Thousands of fans packed in the fields of the venue for a night full of good food, good drinks, and some good old fashion rock music.

The band, which was formed in 1995, put down any doubters that believed a ”Fogerty-less” CCR concert couldn’t produce the same experience. 

First off, the band includes the rhythm section (bass and drums) of the original CCR, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford. These two are both inductees of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, mind you. The band also includes three new members.

Most notably is John Tristao, lead singer and guitarist. I’ve heard people say that John Fogerty has a one of a kind, unique voice. Better make that two of a kind. It’s hard to tell if Tristao is trying hard to mimic the former lead singer or if that’s his natural voice, but the similarity is remarkable. If you were to go by voice alone and not Tristao’s large biker gang appearance, you would not be able to tell the difference.

The night consisted of a number of the classic hits that CCR is known for. The eclectic crowd of all ages were singing and dancing to songs like “Heard it through the Grapevine” and “Down on the Corner’.

CCR is a staple in my music collection, especially in the summertime. Something about those songs reminds me of warm weather, cold drinks, and good friends. If you happened to attend last night, nice move. If you couldn’t make it, make sure you get a chance to check them out next time.
