Less Tribute, More Family Business, with Sons of Cream

Heirs to the Cream legacy, Kofi Baker and Malcolm Bruce (AKA Sons of Cream), perform the music of their legendary fathers’ at The Met in Bury on Friday 7 February at 8pm.

.

Cream were undeniably the first rock “supergroup”. Although they were together for less than 3 years, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton left a gigantic impression on the world of rock music forever.

 

After seeing his father play in the Cream reunion of 2005, Kofi Baker was inspired to continue where Cream and his father, had left off. He teamed up with Malcolm Bruce (son of Jack Bruce) and Will Johns (son of producer Andy Johns and nephew of Eric Clapton) to form Sons of Cream.

 

Will taught himself guitar at age 15, encouraged by his uncle Eric, while both Kofi and Malcolm grew up playing alongside their legendary fathers’, honing their talents and proving that they inherited more than just their names.

 

The band come to The Met playing classics including Strange Brew, Sunshine of Your Love, Tales of Brave Ulysses and White Room, capturing the mood and energy of their fathers while adding their own distinctive styles.

 

Tickets to see the performance are £12 in advance. For more information or to book tickets phone Box Office on 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
