The Music of Cream – Disraeli Gears Tour
The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall presents The Music of Cream – Disraeli Gears Tour on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. Fifty years since their earth-shaking debut album, the bloodlines of that hallowed trilogy come together to pay tribute to Cream’s legendary four-album reign over the psychedelic frontier of the late 1960s.
Kofi BAKER (son of Ginger) and Malcolm BRUCE (son of Jack) unite with Will Johns (nephew of Eric and son of Zeppelin/ Stones/ Hendrix engineer Andy) to unleash the lightning that electrified a generation. The Music of Cream will be performing Cream’s biggest record “Disraeli Gears” in its entirety.
As the son of the legendary Ginger Baker, Kofi Baker has a name synonymous with drumming excellence; he first performed live with Ginger on the iconic BBC TV show, ‘The Old Grey Whistle Test’, proving at 6 years of age that he had inherited dad’s talents.
The son of Cream singer and bassist, Jack Bruce, is a composer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and engineer. Malcolm grew up in the thick of rock royalty. Via the Guildhall School of Music, he began performing professionally at 16 years of age. He’s shared studios and appeared on recordings with Little Richard, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Dr.John and Joe Bonamassa. He often recorded and performed with his father in the UK, US, and Europe.
Encouragement at an early age from his then Uncle, Eric Clapton, was an auspicious start for teenage singer & guitarist, Will Johns. Being the son of legendary recording engineer & producer Andy Johns (The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix), and nephew of fellow legendary producer Glyn Johns, (The Who, Eric Clapton, The Eagles), has also had a huge impact on Will’s career, as did having the late George Harrison as an uncle.
Feel the fire and the freedom of “Spoonful”, “Strange Brew”, “Sunshine of Your Love”, “White Room”, “Crossroads”, and “Badge”. Listen to the stories and see them interplay with their mentors on the big screen — master musicians whose lives have been steeped in the Cream spirit, celebrating an extraordinary legacy.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
