About the Show:

John Fogerty is continuing to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of his iconic songbook that includes such luminary titles as “Proud Mary,” “Fortunate Son,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” “Born on the Bayou,” and “Bad Moon Rising."  Inspired by the 50th anniversary of Woodstock and his iconic hit parade with Creedence Clearwater Revival, “My 50 Year Trip” recreates the sounds and spirit of 1969 with a set mirrored after his original Woodstock set with CCR, giving fans the entire Woodstock experience as if it was August 16, 1969. 

50 years ago, in 1969, John Fogerty wrote, recorded and released three amazing albums in one year with Creedence Clearwater Revival. First, in January of ’69, just a short time after completing his military service, the album Bayou Country was released.  The iconic “Proud Mary,” a reflective song he penned as soon as he was discharged, rose to #2 on the singles chart. The same album also carried us all into the Louisiana backcountry with “Born on the Bayou.”  By August, with the release of Green River, two of his biggest tracks, “Green River” and “Bad Moon Rising” both spiked the U.S. chart at #2. As if any artist being responsible for two of his group’s greatest albums in a single year isn’t amazing enough, Fogerty led CCR to another album debut in November of ’69.  Willy and the Poor Boys, and its single “Down on the Corner” brought a happy, toe-tappin’ track to their fans and it reached #3 on the charts.  Probably the most famous of Fogerty’s songs is, of course, “Fortunate Son” a protest song/anti-war anthem that became the mantra for a generation suspicious of those elites who blindly supported the use of military force, as many had seen in the Johnson administration and their supporters.  

Tedeschi Trucks Band carries a distinguished reputation as one of the premier live bands performing today - and they show no signs of slowing down as they head into their ninth year together. Led by Derek Trucks’ stinging fretwork and Susan Tedeschi’s naturally stunning, emotive vocals and guitar talents, the 12-member strong collective continues to expand musical boundaries in ways that only a rare caliber of musician can achieve. The band is touring in 2019 behind their fourth studio album, Signs. Commanding performances and exceptional musical chemistry – hallmarks of the can’t-miss-concert experience fans have come to anticipate live – are evident throughout the album’s eleven original tracks. From uplifting soulful anthems, to bittersweet ballads and driving rock and roll, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivers a sound and message that taps tradition while also extending the edges of American music with a genre defying collection that is all their own.

Described by Spin as “one of the greatest living voices in rock today,” and by SF Weekly as “the whole package”, Grace Potter continues to impress both critics and audiences with her musical achievements and captivating live shows.Heralded as one of today’s best live performers, Grace Potter has played every major music festival from Coachella and Lollapalooza to Bonnaroo and Rock in Rio. She’s had the honor of sharing the stage with artists such as Willie Nelson, Robert Plant, the Allman Brothers, Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Mavis Staples, and The Roots to name just a few. She was given the honor of performing, along with Sheryl Crow, a tribute to the late Glenn Frey at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Over the last three years, she has seamlessly transitioned from collaborating with the Flaming Lips, for a Tim Burton film, to songwriting and producing for soundtracks and theme songs for film and TV, to multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated country duets with her friend Kenny Chesney, to joining The Rolling Stones on stage for an inspired rendition of “Gimme Shelter.”

Grace's latest album, Midnight, was recorded and mixed at Barefoot Studios in Hollywood, CA, with producer Eric Valentine. The core studio band consisted of Potter and Valentine on most of the instruments, with Matt Burr on drums and percussion. In addition, members of Potter’s longtime band The Nocturnals: guitarists Scott Tournet and Benny Yurco and bassist Michael Libramento contributed to the sessions, as well as former tour-mates and friends singersongwriter Rayland Baxter, Audra Mae, Noelle Skaggs of Fitz & the Tantrums, and Nick Oliveri of Queens of the Stone Age.
