This unique project began in 2017 with a handful of concerts celebrating the 50th Anniversary of ‘The Cream’ in Australia and New Zealand. The show was so well-received that The Music of Cream has now been seen over one hundred times, often selling out, by tens of thousands of fans across North America and the U.K. Featuring family members Kofi Baker (son of Ginger Baker) on drums and Will Johns (Eric Clapton’s nephew) on guitar and vocals, alongside master musicians Sean McNabb and Chris Shutters.
Along with the legendary music, the show features storytelling, photographs, and integrated videos, many of which have not been seen before. For 2020, The Music Of Cream will honor the landmark 1967 recording, Disraeli Gears, often considered Cream’s crowning achievement, by performing the album in its entirety, followed by ‘Clapton Classics’ including hits like “Cocaine,” “Layla,” “Crossroads,” and “Wonderful Tonight” along with other Cream hits and rarities that fans have asked for.
