Creedence Clearwater Tribute Band to Play Downtown Center

July 02, 2012

Blue Moon Swamp will perform on Thursday, July 5th at 7:00 P.M. in the Downtown Center located at 810 State Street. “This is our third concert in the Tribute series and the response has been phenomenal. We are so excited to see the crowds grow and the people having so much fun,” said Darlene Cole, Venue Manager for the Department of Community Relations which oversees the city’s downtown concert series, Full Moon Jam. Creedence Clearwater Revival, or Creedence as some recall them, does that name not bring back memories that include songs like Bad Moon Rising, Fortunate Son, Susie Q, and Centerfold? All from an era when rock consisted of a musical style that encompassed country rock and swamp rock genres. Creedence sung about the bayous, the Mississippi River, catfish and other popular elements of Southern iconography. CCR’s music was a staple of American life during the late 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

Seating will be provided but lawn chairs are welcomed. Concessions and restrooms are available on site. There is no charge for the event. For more information contact Darlene Cole at dcole@bristoltn.org or via phone at 423-764-4171.

Blue Moon Swamp treats audiences to a powerful, authentic musical journey through some of the best American rock and roll ever recorded. The band provides both a dynamic and visually entertaining live event for all audience types.
