Commotion pride themselves on their unparalleled attention to detail and commitment to faithfully reproducing the iconic CCR sound.  From the soulful voice of Steve McLain to the mesmerizing guitar solos of Jimmy Ryan, the band brings every riff, melody, and rhythm to life with astonishing precision.  Jimmy is a platinum-selling musician with a Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement Award, having recorded and performed with superstars such as Carly Simon, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Mick Jagger, Cat Stevens, James Taylor, Rod Stewart, Jim Croce, and many more.

Embodying John Fogerty, Steve McLain possesses a vocal prowess that rivals the one and only John Fogerty.  With his husky timbre, emotive delivery, and uncanny ability to recreate the raw energy of Fogerty, you’ll be transported back to the era where CCR ruled the airwaves.  Steve, no stranger to live performances, has spent over twenty years wowing fans with his emotionally charged vocals, and an uncanny ability to read an audience and deliver exactly what brings them to their feet.

CCR was known for their infectious beats, and drummer, Mark Ellis, and bassist, George Foster, deliver with unrivaled intensity.  With every song, you’ll feel the pulsating energy that defined the heart and soul of CCR’s classic tunes.  Get ready to dance, stomp, and sing along as you become one with the infectious rhythms that shaped rock history.

Mark Ellis is a multi-instrumentalist, has worked as a staff writer for Atlanta Artist Records, and a recording artist with EMI Electrola as a member of DaVibe.  He also toured extensively with the Chicago tribute band, The KC Transit Authority.

George Foster’s bass groove is so deep you could forget who and where you are, but then during a show you might wonder if he’s actually a comedian.  Between stages and studios large and small since the 1970s, he’s brought the booty to blues, country, reggae, world, jazz, folk, pop, and rock.

Commotion’s setlist is a rollercoaster ride through Creedence Clearwater Revival’s greatest hits.  From the swampy grooves of “Green River” to the poignant balladry of “Have You Ever Seen the Rain”, and the foot-stomping frenzy of “Bad Moon Rising”, Commotion takes you on an unforgettable musical journey that will evoke cherished memories and even create new ones.
