Few bands of the 1960s retained as much a sense of the roots of rock and roll as did Creedence Clearwater Revival. Their music is rife with country, rockabilly and R&B influences, a combination that produced several hit singles including “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” “Lodi,” “Susie Q,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain,” “Travelin’ Band,” “Fortunate Son,” “Down On The Corner,” “Bad Moon Rising” and “Proud Mary.”
Anything but a cover band, like a symphony orchestra performing the works of Mozart, Classic Albums Live forgoes the gimmickry of costumes and impersonations, putting the music first. These world-class musicians tackle iconic music, concentrating solely on re-creating it faithfully from the original recording.
USA Dance, Monday, July 28, 7 to 10:15 p.m., at Gulfport Casino, 5500 Shore Blvd., Gulfport. Admission is $7 and includes a dance workshop, professional and amateur exhibitions, dance hosts and snacks. For information, call 397-5754.
