On Friday, April 29, 2022, the Community Center for the Performing Arts proudly welcomes The Music of Cream to the WOW Hall

The Music of Cream is made up of Kofi Baker (Ginger Baker’s son), Will Johns (Eric Clapton’s nephew,) Sean Mcnabb and Chris Shutters. They have announced an exciting new tour for 2022. Honoring the legendary band’s landmark album Disraeli Gears, the 40-date North American outing will feature Disraeli Gears performed in its entirety followed by a set of additional hits and rarities from Cream, Clapton, Blind Faith and more. 

The upcoming tour finds The Music of Cream continuing their celebration of the extraordinary music and legacy their family members created more than 50 years ago via their extensive live show and personal stories and footage of their fathers and mentors.  

Honoring the original band’s landmark 1967 recording of Disraeli Gears, often considered Cream’s crowning achievement, concerts will feature the album performed 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 been asking for.
