    North America’s most authentic sounding CCR tribute is GREEN RIVER REVIVAL. Their version of “Down on the Corner” sounds so much like John Fogerty you’ll swear it is the real CCR! The members of this band have played in CCR tributes across Canada, Scandinavia and the U.S. for the past decade and now they have joined together to bring you the ultimate CREEDENCE REVIVAL

    The show presents the music of CCR with a storyline that incorporates all the CREEDENCE hits and includes several costume changes. Chain gang prison uniforms right out of the song MIDNIGHT SPECIAL, those plaid flannel shirts made famous by Creedence in the 60’s and you gotta see the boys dressed in army fatigues depicting the era of John Fogerty’s Vietnam protest songs
