Rewind Tribute Series with Eric Clapton & Bad Company Tributes
- What fans love about Eric Clapton: his guitar finesse, his catalog of songs that fit every mood, and his gentle, yet gruff, voice
- What fans don't love about Eric Clapton: he doesn't tour very much
- Luckily: fans can get the Clapton experience compliments of local Philly act The Angel Lewis Project
- What to expect: probably hits such as "Layla" and "White Room," maybe shufflers such as "After Midnight," and perhaps the balladry of "Tears in Heaven"
- What fans love about Bad Company: they play everything from two-fisted rockers such as "Rock and Roll Fantasy" to secretly sweet two-fisted rockers such as "Can't Get Enough"
- What fans don't love about Bad Company: they live in England, so they're rarely able to RSVP to their house parties
- But once again: the Rewind Tribute Series fills the Bad Company-shaped void in listeners' lives with a rollicking cover band
