A long-time entertainer who prides himself on being a natural at saluting John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival will strut his tribute to the icons Saturday, Sept. 28, in a concert at the Elks Opera House.

Musician Randy Linder and his band will turn the light on superstar Fogerty and his legendary ensemble, focusing especially on his music of the late 1960s and early 1970s at 7 p.m. Call the Elks Opera House box office, 117 E. Gurley St., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday or visit its website at www.elksoperahouse.com to get tickets, which range in price from $22 to $25.

Linder, who lives in the Seattle, Wash., area, started his first band in 1968 when he was in the eighth grade, as part of a family tradition to follow a musical path. Both his older and younger brothers were performers. "I always have made a portion of my living in music," he said.

Fogerty has been on the American music scene since 1959 and has rocked across the spectrum of roots rock, country rock, blues rock, swamp pop, southern rock, rock and roll, heartland rock and Americana.

Lander kicked off his tribute to Creedence Clearwater Revival in 2000 and has traveled across the United States and even to Mexico and Guam with this special show. "I have built a good reputation" performing Creedence Clearwater Revival, said Lander, who is his band's lead singer and guitarist.

He came to devoting his career to emulating Fogerty and the Creedence Clearwater Revival, he says, because "I have a natural tendency to sing like John Fogerty and play the guitar like he does."

And, Lander says of why he became a devotee Fogerty's repertoire, is "because I just personally like it, and I am aware of a huge population that likes it. All ages tend to like it."

Lander and his four-piece band will perform such Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revival hits as "Born in the Bayou," "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising," "Suzie Q" and "Green River."

Lander says on his website, www.randylinder.com, that his "authenticity shines through with the visual resemblance, the voice, the lead guitar style and even the rockin' blues harp played by John Fogerty in some of those early CCR hits. You will walk away from this show having absorbed the energy of a full-blown rock 'n roll concert with a renewed interest in a singer/songwriter who played a huge roll in shaping American music culture."
