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.
Mike Weber started out playing drums when his father sat him down at a drum set at age 7. From then on, he spent just about every day after school playing to albums like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Beach Boys. He continued to perform in school bands as well as local groups.
Through his adult musical career, Mike has toured regionally and nationally, worked as a session musician and played in many original and cover bands. His musical career has afforded him to see many places and meet many fine people. "I would not trade these experiences for anything else and feel very lucky to have this talent" he states.
Mike's musical journey has also led him to build a professional recording studio where he can expand his musical roots to music recording, engineering and production. Mike is married and a proud father of 3 beautiful girls.
Mike Miller was born and raised in northeastern Pennsylvania. He was first inspired to play guitar after seeing his cousin Jack's band play at a firemen's picnic. After badgering his parents into submission, they borrowed an old beat up acoustic guitar from a neighbor and he began taking guitar lessons at a local music store. Showing progress, the beat up acoustic was replaced the next Christmas with a hot red Supro electric guitar. The inevitable first band and first gig happened around age thirteen. Later in his teens Mike began playing bass guitar.
Playing in groups and doing "singles" since the late '60s, Mike has played from Maine to Louisiana and many places in between including NYC. Recently retired from his "day gig", Mike is now fulfilling his lifelong dream of being a full time musician.
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.
