  • 21 SEPTEMBER, THURSDAY 7:30-9:30PM - 50th Anniversary of Cream's Debut Album Performed by Heavy Cream.

    "HEAVY CREAM is quickly becoming the definitive tribute to CREAM, rock music's original SUPER GROUP and features as Eric Clapton teenage guitar prodigy Billy "The Kid" Thoden, as Jack Bruce, bassist Dion Paci and on drums Ginger Baker look a like Steve Iannettoni.

    For the first time, with stunning historical accuracy in both look and sound, a tribute to Cream has been assembled...HEAVY CREAM!

    Boasting spec replicas of the famous 'Fool' artwork guitars of Clapton and Bruce and Ginger Baker's legendary double Ludwig drum kit, as well as Cream's signature stack of British Marshall Amps, plus authentic wardrobe that Cream actually used at their most memorable 60's shows, this band has all the requisite parts to re-create Cream's classic concerts for today's audiences.
