The "Cream" were undeniably the first rock "supergroup" of the 1960s. And though 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.
Now Ginger Baker's son Kofi, along with Jack Bruce's son Malcolm, team up with super guitarist Godfrey Townsend to pay humble tribute to the world's greatest power trio.

Guitarist Godfrey Townsend has worked with many of rock musics most influential names. In the past decade alone, he has performed with John Entwistle (bass guitarist of The Who), Jack Bruce (bass guitarist/vocalist of Cream), Dave Mason (guitarist/vocalist of Traffic) and Alan Parsons (producer/engineer/recording artist). After hearing Godfrey jamming on some Cream tunes in a club one night, Eric Clapton's guitar tech, Lee Dickson commented to John Entwistle of The Who: "This guy's got Clapton down better than Clapton!" Townsend's mastery is so complete that Jack Bruce has been recruiting him and his band to back him up for the past eight years.

As the son of Cream's legendary drumming icon Ginger Baker, Kofi Baker has a name thats synonymous with drumming excellence. And Kofi strongly lives up to his name. With his outstanding skills, drive & dedication, he continues the great "Baker" legacy. Besides amazing shows with his dad, Kofi has toured with John Ethridge (Soft Machine), Steve Waller (Manfred Mann) and Randy California (Spirit).

Malcolm Bruce is a composer and multi instrumentalist, playing guitar, bass, piano and voice. Besides performances with his father off and on over the years, and appearing on several of Jack's CDs, he has toured with Leslie West and Corky Laing of Mountain, as part of West, Bruce Jr. and Laing, played support for Joe Satriani across Europe, the US and Canada and most recently a special Jimi Hendrix Birthday tribute at BB Kings Blues club in NYC with Eric Schenkman (Spin Doctors) and Corky Laing.

If you never saw Cream live, and you probably haven't, this is the closest you'll ever come to the real thing outside of the real thing itself. Continuing where Cream left off, Sons of Cream is the ultimate Cream tribute, combining Cream's innovative and experimental style with amazing virtuoso talent.
