The Green River CCR/John Fogerty Tribute Band is the brain child of native New Yorker Rick Horvath. Noodles as he is affectionately know, was born to perform this music. He started singing CCR songs in his very first band when he was only 13 years old.
The idea came about after some research as Rick explains... "I have friends who perform in some of the top Tribute Bands in the country - Big Shot (Billy Joel Tribute) and Beginnings (Chicago Tribute) to name a few. I decided to see what sort of market there was for a Creedence Clearwater Revival Tribute Band. I found only 1 other band in the US - and that was on the west coast!" The choice was obvious and Green River began rehearsing in late 2009.
The show is very faithful to a live CCR performance. Listeners enjoy a full 1 1/2 hour show of their favorite CCR classics (Bad Moon Rising, Proud Mary, Up Around the Bend to name a few) and songs that Creedence would turn into live jams such as Born on the Bayou and Susie Q. The band makes a costume change and comes back to perform solo John Fogerty classics including The Old Man Down the Road and Centerfield capturing the energy of his current show. [+]
