It was full-on CCR at Blue Frog Studios in White Rock, British Columbia, Canada this weekend. The band, Bad Moon Riders paid homage to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, Creedence Clearwater Revival. Operating under strict Covid protocols, the 4 sold out shows were a real treat for CCR fans, and fans of live performances. Under the regulations, the studio was only allowed 30 patrons, not the usual 100 capacity. The setting was welcomed by the fans, and provided an intimate setting for the musicians. Mike Kelly nailed the lead vocals, you could have sworn Fogerty was there in person, and the band carried off the Swamp Rock sound of Creedence. A great weekend for live Rock and Roll in White Rock. Saturday the early show was live streaming around the world, and was seen in Texas, Alaska, Yukon, Southern California, and across Canada.
After reviewing some of my posts, I realize it sounds like I’m always at the Blue Frog Studios in White Rock! Well, that’s partially true. After the first time at the Blue Frog, I offered my services as mc to Kelly and Juanita if they should ever need it, and they took me up on it. I love live music, and that venue is acoustically perfect! Add to that the skills of Pat Glover, the sound engineer, and you’ve got yourself a winner! The intimate atmosphere of only 100 seats, adds to the experience. Sold out shows are the norm, and word around the music community is, the Blue Frog is the place to play!
