The group’s new live CD sounds so much like Creedence Clearwater Revival that producers at the CD company thought it was the real CCR.

The members of this band have played in CCR tributes across Canada, Scandinavia and the U.S. for the past two decades and now they have joined together to create the ultimate Creedence Revival, continued the website information.

Most people don't realize just how many songs they actually know in the show that features hit after hit after hit. All of these greatest hits will come back to fans during their amazing live concert which has already sold out over 20 theatres in the past year.

Always delivering first class entertainment, these boys have entertained thousands in the past few years as they are a favourite with First Nations, theatres, casinos, festivals and motorcycle rallies.

Green River Revival's Roadshow features the Bayou Swamp stage setup. The whole stage looks like the band is playing in the middle of the swamp complete with alligators.

Green River, the Number 1 Nationally Touring Creedence Clearwater Revival/John Fogerty Tribute Show is the brain child of native New Yorker Rick Horvath. Noodles as he is affectionately known, was born to perform this music. He started singing CCR songs in his very first band when he was only 13 years old.

CCR was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Their musical style encompassed the roots rock and swamp rock genres. Creedence Clearwater Revival's music is still a staple of American radio airplay and the band has sold 30 million albums in the United States alone.
The show is very faithful to a live CCR performance. Listeners enjoy a full 90-minute show of their favorite CCR classics (Bad Moon Rising, Proud Mary, Up Around the Bend to name a few) and songs that Creedence would turn into live jams such as Born on the Bayou andSusie Q. The band also mixes in John Fogerty classics including The Old Man Down the Road andCenterfield, capturing the energy of his current show, concluded the information.
