Acorn Concert Series: The Cream of Clapton Band

July 21 @ 5:00 pm

Photo of Eric Clapton playing guitar. Text: The Cream of Clapton Band on Tour 2024! 24 Nights Revisited. Featuring Will Johns (Eric Clapton's Nephew) [with inset photo of Johns on guitar] and Steve Ferrone (Eric Clapton, Tom Petty) [with photo of Ferrone behind drum kit]. Family, friends and bandmates celebrate the music and share their stories.

Bringing a sensibility that comes from being around this music their whole lives, the Cream of Clapton Band features lead guitarist and vocalist Will Johns (Eric’s nephew) and Grammy-award-winning drummer Steve Ferrone, who played in Eric Clapton’s band between 1986-1992 and played in Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers band between 1994-2017.

The set includes not only the ‘Clapton Classics’ but rekindles hits from albums Behind the Sun, August and Journeyman – recordings that have particularly influenced this band and led to Eric’s record breaking 24-night residency at London’s Royal Albert Hall!
