1993, five very talented musicians, formed the group Heartache Tonight:
A Tribute to the Eagles. After months of rehersals
they were ready to debut their show. They were an immediate success! The reviews quickly dubbed Brian
Eldredge "the most
incredible Don Henley impressionist that anyone has ever heard!"
The group then decided to add another tribute to their repertoire.
They wanted to pay
homage to the patriotism of the American people and what better group to represent the spirit of the
people.... than the music of "Creedence Clearwater Revival!" Mixing southern Creole styles, R&B and
rockabilly, they defined the "spirit and sound" of rock and roll as authentically as any American group
ever has. No other group in pop music history achieved the crossover success that"CCR"
With Brian's exceptional vocal abilities, he dons a wig
and costume to emulate John Fogerty. The photos you see here are NOT John Fogerty! This is Brian
himself. Not only does he look like John, but he has the facial expressions and voice as well!
Combine that with Rick's guitar leads, authentically
capturing the classic bluesy rock guitar
style, they make this tribute a huge success!
"The response is incredible", says
Brian & Rick. Fans of all ages sing and dance to
CCR's songs just as much today as they did a quarter
of a century ago! The spirit of the music in general
had a great impact on Americans during the Vietnam
War, which lifted their spirits and gave them hope.
Veterans that hear our tribute come to shake our
hands, thanking us for bringing back the music that
meant so much to them during a difficult time
in their life. "I am proud to be performing this
tribute" says Brian, it reminds us all of our
patriotism and what America stands
Remaining group members consist of bassist
Lon Garcia, guitarist Matt Barrett, and drummer
Bryan Jenkins. Each member, playing an integral part, in perfecting the
musical compositions and melodic
vocals of both the Eagles and CCR." Re-creating and perfecting the sounds of these tributes was not
an easy task" says Brian. It wasn't like we could just gather five musicians and perform. It took finding
extremely talented musicians who wouldn't settle for nothing short of perfection.
