Combining timeless CCR favorites as well as John Fogerty solo hits, “Fortunate Son’s” stated goal is to personify the spirit and grit of America’s favorite rock and roll band. Guild Program Director Ron Martel said, “This show is for all age groups and unites rock, country, blues, and folk music fans together like no other act can.”

“Fortunate Son” was featured on AXS TV’s “The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands.” AXS TV host and producer Katie Daryl said, “I loved seeing Fortunate Son, our Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute, because that’s my go-to band!” Band leader Brad Ford stated, “The band is committed to delivering CCR classics with the authentic sound, look and feel of John Fogerty and his band.”

“Fortunate Son” will present a show of continuous chart busting hits, from the swampy blues of “Born on the Bayou,” and “Green River,” to the country influences of “Bad Moon Rising” and “Centerfield,” to the rock anthems of “Proud Mary” and “Suzy Q,” to the sultry sounds of “Who’ll Stop the Rain” and “Lodi.”

Since 1994, Brad Ford has starred as John Fogerty, in tribute to his favorite group, “Creedence Clearwater Revival.” Over the years, the show has continued to rise in popularity, even before being featured on AXS TV. “Fortunate Son” performs across America, Canada, Europe, and Asia. This show is in high demand at casinos, state and county fairs, corporate events and for U.S. troops at home and abroad.

Guild President Travis Montgomery says, “We are very fortunate to have a group of this caliber play here. With such enthusiastic crowds at the Guild concert events, they are not only agreeable, but eager to play for our Canyon Lake audience.”
