Creedance set for Riverside concert

TRIBUTE act, Creedance Clearwater Revived - who have a strong Coleraine connection - are bringing their superb stage show to the Riverside Theatre next month.

The band was formed by five musicians hailing from Coleraine and Belfast as a tribute to iconic American band Creedance Clearwater Revival. Creedance were formed in late 1969 by brothers John and Tom Fogarty along with Stu Cook and Doug Clifford.

Although they only performed and recorded for a short period, they produced a catalogue of great songs and influenced countless bands from all genres.

Even today their hits feature in countless movies and on the playlist of radio stations all over the world.

The members of Creedance Clearwater Revived have a wealth of experience and musical talent in Northern Ireland and beyond.

Their repetoire will include the brilliant Bad Moon Rising, Proud Mary, Have You Ever Seen The Rain, Lodi, Down On The Corner and Fortunate Son to name but a few.

The boys have worked tirelessly to reproduce the authentic sound of Creedance Clearwater Revival.

Band members Rory Loughery (vocals), David Gardner (drums), Brian Millican (guitar) and Robin McNicholl (guitar) all hail from Coleraine, the latter having played with stars such as Van Morrison and Billy Ocean.

Keyboards player Francis Canning is from Magherafelt and bass guitarist Michael Maitland, from Belfast, has 25 years experience in the music industry.

The show will be held in the Riverside Theatre, Coleraine on March 5 from 8pm.

Tickets cost £15 (£12 concession). Contact the Riverside Theatre for further details.
