The cream will rise to the top this week at The Flowerpot in Derby, starting with a visit from an acclaimed tribute band on Friday, April 3.

Fresh Cream present their tribute to the world’s greatest power trio, here featuring Malcolm Bruce on bass and vocals, Will Johns on guitar and vocals, and Chris Page on drums.

This stunning tribute features the son of one of members of Cream.

Although together for less than three years, the band Cream, consisting of the late Jack Bruce (bass), Ginger Baker (drums), and Eric Clapton (guitar), had a massive impact on the British rock music scene of the 1960s and beyond.

Jack Bruce’s son, Malcolm, together with Will Johns (son of legendary producer Andy Johns, nephew of Glyn Johns, Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood and the late George Harrison), team up with drummer Chris Page (ex-Cheese), to pay tribute.

Fresh Cream capture the mood and energy of the original Cream and add their own distinctive styles.

Support on the night comes from Henry Parker.

There’s more tribute fun at the King Street venue on Saturday, April 4 when there’s a gig by The Bryan Adams Experience.

The four-piece band is based in the North East of England, and have been playing together since 1998.

Touring has taken them to Spain, Bahrain, Ireland, Belgium and Holland, as well as all over the UK, performing to crowds as large as 17,000. Major headlining gigs have included: the Mathew Street festival in Liverpool, Party in the Park in Jersey and the Festival de Sao Rouge in the Azores.

Front man Stuart authentically emulates the look and sound of Bryan Adams. While the band reproduce all of his numerous hits to perfection from his early rock songs to his current ballads.

In recent years ITV produced a documentary about the group entitled Cover Their Tracks, this was broadcast at peak viewing time.

The band has featured at Bryan Adams fan club conventions, on BBC radio, and in the national press. They also have close links with Bryan’s biggest fan site, 18 til i who endeavour to promote them extensively.
