ERIC CLAPTON Tribute: THE BELL BOTTOM BLUES
Saturday, September 22, 2012 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
New York, United States
The New Jersey-based Bell Bottom Blues is an dynamic musical act paying tribute to the music of the legendary Eric Clapton. During a typical show, the band performs Clapton's work from such legendary bands as Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos, Delaney & Bonnie, and The Beatles. Of course, Clapton's solo work from the '70's to the present day is also well represented.
Bell Bottom Blues's repertoire includes some of Clapton's best-known work, including tracks like "After Midnight," "I Shot the Sheriff," "Cocaine," "Have You Ever Loved a Woman," "Lay Down Sally," "Layla," "Tears in Heaven," "Sunshine of Your Love," "Wonderful Tonight," and of course, "Bell Bottom Blues." Because of the passion and talent each musician brings to the band, they are able to capture the vocal and instrumental genius that is the essence of a Clapton performance. This group's goal is to provide the audience with the ultimate Clapton experience at each and every show.
