The Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that Creedence Clearwater Revisited has been confirmed as the national act performing on Sunday, July 7, 2013, at Ellicottville’s Summer Music Festival.
Stu Cook and Doug “Cosmo” may not have intended it, but their band Creedence Clearwater Revisited has taken on a startling life of its own. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section (bass and drums respectively) from the legendary group Creedence Clearwater Revival launched the “Revisited” project in 1995 to once again perform live CCR hits — touchstones of a generation. Though the pair initially only planned to play private parties, Creedence Clearwater Revisited now performs up to 100 shows a year and released the album “Recollection.”
“We never really had any intention of playing for the public,” says Cook. “But a friend wanted to promote a couple of concerts.” Since then, the reaction to Creedence Clearwater Revisited’ s concerts has been astounding – driven in part by a generation of kids who, as Cosmo says, “weren’t even born when the music came out.”
