 Creedence Clearwater Tribute at the Bankhead Theater 

This tribute presentation of Creedence Clearwater Revival by Randy Linder and his band is second to none!!  

They have entertained audiences from California to New York with the beloved hits from CCR between 1968 and 1972, and even some John Fogerty solos. 

A person playing an electric guitar, likely a musician performing live.

Randy’s authenticity shines through with the visual resemblance, the voice, the lead guitar style, and even the rockin’ blues harp played by John Fogerty in some of those early CCR hits.  

You will walk away from this show having absorbed the energy of a full-blown Rock N Roll concert and with a renewed interest in a singer/songwriter who played a huge role in shaping American Music Culture 

Don't miss out on this one-of-a-kind event! 

After the show, we have reserved a group table at Bruno's restaurant downtown on First Street (Dinner tab on your own.) Take a 5-minute walk with us and enjoy a visit with fellow guests over some delicious food!

  • Transportation on your own, meet at 3:30 pm, Bankhead Theater, 2400 First Street, Livermore.
