The 'Fringe Family' sipped on cool drinks on a hot Adelaide night, waiting in anticipation for the Creedence Clearwater tribute by The Midnight Specials to rock the iconic Capri Theatre.
And boy did we rock.
It's a wonder the balcony didn't move!
The party began with another Adelaide icon Dave Heath, ex-5AA radio announcer, bouncing on stage to share snippets of Creedence Clearwater Revival's story from the late 1960s to early '70s.
Images of war-torn Vietnam were emblazoned across the large theatre screen drawing us into the world that impacted much of John Fogerty's social and political song-writing.
We watched a backdrop of the Creedence boys while the live band belted out songs we know and love - Proud Mary, Bad Moon Rising, Looking Out My Back Door and classic covers like Ooby Dooby, and Suzie Q (their first Top 40 hit).
The Midnight Specials - decked out in the CCR uniform of checks and drummer stripes - are brilliant musos and did the original band true justice, including some amazing key changes and their own creative twists that really worked.
They certainly put a spell on us, enticing the crowd to jump up from their seats and it soon become a foot-stomping, clapping and singing-out-loud kind of evening.
We went down the road to the early '70s - whizzing some of us back nearly 50 years - and the young folk clearly enjoyed the ride too.
Creedence originated from a time with the atrocities of war upon them, and from this they created great music which will be imprinted on our souls. Better get in quick for this two and a half hour show.
