Mackay and Whitsunday Life

I See The Bad Moon Risin’

‘Good Golly Miss Milly’, there’s a ‘Travelin’ Band’ cruising to The Airlie Beach Hotel to take over the whole first weekend of March – it’s sure to cause a ‘Commotion’.

The Australian Creedence Clearwater Revival show, Ramble Tamble, will take over the Bar Top Stage ‘Down On The Corner’ at The Pub on Saturday, March 4 and 5 in a free show featuring all the best of CCR.

Getting to see this world-class four-piece tribute band from Melbourne is a treat for any ‘Fortunate Son’ – these boys have a pedigree of performing as the band from El Cerrito, starting back in 1989, they’re the certified deal, experts of that American music.

Creedence tapped into the rich, traditional seam of the United States’ sound when they emerged in the ‘70s - only for a short time – and wrote their page in the Great American Songbook. With Ramble Tamble bandmates Rob, Bren, and Richard, there is a reverence for that which made CCR so phenomenal.

The boys take on the roles of the Fogerty brothers and their bandmates, capitalising on their own years of experience touring alongside some of the world’s top recording artists and tribute shows nationally and internationally.

For them, it comes down to one thing: detail.

In producing their tribute to America’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band, they made sure it was an experience no die-hard CCR fan would be disappointed with – it’s like they were ‘Born on the Bayou’ with how completely they replicate every facet of them, like a true ‘Chameleon’.

It is a “tribute in the true sense of the word.” They delve into all seven of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s seven albums showing respect, veneration, devotion, and some damn hard work, they "ain’t never had no day off”. It’s about reproducing the sound of the iconic American roots band as if you’re back in the late ‘60s. That ‘Pendulum’ never stopped swinging.

Every show is an event, a miniature concert comprised of two acts: on Saturday, Ramble Tamble will show off their Creedence Show before heading into The Best of Die Hard Creedence classics. They’ll hit all the bests and then head ‘Up Around The Bend’ and back again. Everything from ‘Have You Ever Seen The Rain’ to ‘Proud Mary’.

Then on Sunday, there's Ramble Tamble’s Cosmo’s Factory, the entire album from start to finish

, and afterward their "The Creedence Influence”, a mixture of songs from the era that influenced the Californian band.

Don’t miss them when they arrive at the Airlie Beach Hotel for two days of free shows in March.
