Green River - The #1 Nationally Touring Creedence Clearwater Revival/John Fogerty Tribute Show is the brain child of native New Yorker Rick Horvath. Noodles as he is affectionately known, was born to perform this music. He started singing CCR songs in his very first band when he was only 13 years old.
CCR was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Their musical style encompassed the roots rock and swamp rock genres. Creedence Clearwater Revival's music is still a staple of American radio airplay and the band has sold 30 million albums in the United States alone.
The show is very faithful to a live CCR performance. Listeners enjoy a full 90 minute show of their favorite CCR classics (Bad Moon Rising, Proud Mary, Up Around the Bend to name a few) and songs that Creedence would turn into live jams such as Born on the Bayou and Susie Q. The band also mixes in John Fogerty classics including The Old Man Down the Road and Centerfield capturing the energy of his current show.
Rick "Noodles" Horvath has been a familiar staple on the East Coast music scene for many years.
A founding member of one of New York's top bands, Sorethumb, Rick became a prominent figure in the Long Island musical community. Although he is known for his guitar playing, Rick is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist who has been sought out by many great bands.
He acted as musical director for Rick Virga & All The King's Men, NY's #1 Elvis Tribute Show which performed on Broadway and has performed with such rock legends as Mick Jones (Foreigner), Jimmy Buffet and Davy Jones. He has opened for such acts as The Romantics, Glenn Tilbrook, Todd Rundgren and Colin Hay and is the leader of the national Touring CCR Tribute Band Green River.
Tim Theobald is another native of Northeastern Pennsylvania. His Dad bought him his first guitar when he was in the 5th grade. His Mom had to pry that guitar out of his hands to get him to the dinner table (current girl friend has same problem). There was always music in the house - Mom played piano and Dad loved to listen!
Tim began playing in local church groups starting in 7th grade and throughout
high school. His first talent show was in 8th grade as the guitarist for "The Scorpions" (before the real Scorpions!); then in High School in a band called "Fantasy" (imagine that!). Later groups include "Helms Deep" and "Profit".
Tim is well known in the local music scene and has played in numerous local
establishments, festivals, and events. His most recent projects include "Right Side Up" and "You Know Who" featuring covers from influences including ELO, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Joe Jackson, U2, and The Rolling Stones. Tim is thrilled to be part of Green River and is pumped for the 2022 tour.
Dave was raised in rural Northeast Pennsylvania. The son of a drummer and dance teacher, Dave’s fate as a musician was inherent. At 10 he learned the trumpet and a few years later started learning the bass, guitar, and drums.
Bass was the instrument that really stuck and before you knew it Dave was playing in the school orchestra, jazz band, his Father’s polka band, and a high school rock band. After high school Dave went to college for a music degree. He put himself through school playing in top 40 and rock bands.
After college Dave returned to Northeast Pa. and opened a music store and also landed a gig in one of the best dance and show bands of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Pocono region. After many years of being that band’s bassist Dave has come on board with Green River to return to his roots of playing great rock and roll.
Harrison was also raised in rural Northeast Pennsylvania. He's been playing drums most of his life and has a natural talent for copying any style thrown at him. Throughout school he played in concert, jazz, pep and marching bands.
In his early twenties, "Night Shift" and "Fastlane" were the main projects playing classic rock and pop in mostly local clubs and at weddings, parties. etc.
Harrison has his own music and video studio. He also studied at Antonelli Institute of Art and Photography and runs his own graphics company Harrison Signs.
Harrison has come on board with Green River for the start of our 2022 Tour providing a strong and solid back beat and an additional harmony vocal..
