About Creedence Clearwater Revisited
Stu Cook and Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section from the legendary group Creedence Clearwater Revival, launched the Creedence Clearwater Revisited project in 1995 to once again perform live Creedence Clearwater Revival hits ‑ touchstones of a generation. Though the pair initially only planned to play private parties, Creedence Clearwater Revisited now performs to sold-out audiences around the world and released several albums, including 1998’s platinum-certified, live album Recollection. With a lineup featuring lead singer John Tristao, guitarist Kurt Griffey and multi-instrumentalist Steve Gunner, Creedence Clearwater Revisited continues to perform the Creedence Clearwater Revival songs that have become staples on radio, television and movie soundtracks, including “Bad Moon Rising,” “Fortunate Son,” “Proud Mary, “Susie Q” and “Green River” among many others.
In 1980 Loverboy introduced themselves to the world with their self-titled debut album and quickly became one of America’s most popular rock bands. Over the next seven years, the band garnered four multi-platinum albums and numerous international gold albums, including Get Lucky, Keep It Up, Lovin’ Every Minute of It and Wildside. The band built its reputation on-stage, bringing a big rock sound and high-energy live show. Hits songs include “Working for the Weekend,” “Hot Girls in Love” and “Turn Me Loose” among others.
About Gary Wright
Gary Wright has spent more than 30 years shattering conventional ideas about how to make chart-topping rock music. With several successful albums with the British band Spooky Tooth already under his belt Wright released his debut solo album Extraction in 1970. Wright climbed to a new level of prominence following 1975’s The Dream Weaver, which featured the gold-certified single “Dream Weaver” and multi-platinum hit “Love Is Alive.” The album is also said to be the first all-synthesizer/keyboard album. Wright’s resume also includes the singles “Phantom Writer” and “Really Wanna Know You,” as well as his 2010 album Connected.
Firefall broke onto the music scene with their eponymously named debut album, which quickly achieved gold certification. The album featured the singles, “Livin' Ain't Livin',” “Cinderella” and “Your Are the Woman,” the latter of which was a top-10 hit. The band continued their success with their next two albums, the gold-certified Luna Sea and Elan, which achieved platinum certification. After a string of successful albums in the 1980s, including Break of Dawn and Mirror of the World, the band released Messenger in 1994. Including the singles, “Secret,” “Love Find a Way” and “When the River Rises,” which was written about the Flood of 1993, the album provided fans with a familiar but updated Firefall sound. The band’s current album, Firefall Reunion Live, was released in 2009.
