Green River – The #1 Nationally Touring Creedence Clearwater Revival/John Fogerty Tribute Show is the brainchild of native New Yorker Rick Horvath.
Horvath, or “Noodles,” as he is affectionately known, was born to perform this music. He started singing CCR songs in his very first band when he was just 13 years old. CCR was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Although originating in California, their musical style encompassed the roots-rock and swamp-rock genres with lyrics about the Mississippi River, bayou country and catfish. The band is named after CCR’s third album, “Green River” that went gold and topped the Billboard 200.
Creedence Clearwater Revival’s music is still a favorite of American radio airplay; the band has sold 26 million albums in the United States alone. The show is faithful to a live CCR performance. Audiences enjoy a full 90-minute show of their favorite CCR classics (“Bad Moon Rising,” “Proud Mary,” “Up Around the Bend”) and songs that Creedence would turn into live jams such as “Born on the Bayou” and “Susie Q”. The band also mixes in John Fogerty classics including “The Old Man Down the Road” and “Centerfield” capturing the energy of his current show.
