Eric Clapton fans can join in for a 74th birthday celebration at Memo Music Hall in St Kilda this Saturday.

The show will feature Andrew Swann – Singer/Narrator/Guitar/Drums, Tim Neal – Hammond, Mark Ferrie – Bass, Kerryn Tolhurst – Guitars and special guests Wayne Burt and Andre Warhurst performing the music of Eric Clapton spanning his 50+ year career.

Andrew Swann said that the show is “going back to the start creaming and bluesbreaking our way through some classic material with a healthy dose of Clapton originals and his early blues inspirations ala Freddie King, Robert Johnston etc.”

Eric Clapton joined The Yardbirds in 1963. His first major hit ‘For Your Love’ was with The Yardbirds. Ironically, Clapton hated the song and left the band soon after.

Clapton’s next group was John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers. He only lasted a few months but still managed to fit in The Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton album in that time.

Cream came next.

Clapton’s next group was Blind Faith teaming Eric with Steve Winwood.

Eric had a stint with Delaney and Bonnie and Friends before forming Derek and the Dominos.

Eric’s solo career kicked off with ‘Eric Clapton’ where he started his longtime friendship with JJ Cale.

Andrew Swann has a lot of history to cover at Memo Music Hall, Saturday 13 April, 2019.
