Strange Crew

Tribute to Eric Clapton

The information below is from the 2019 Fair, and it will give you an idea of what to expect in 2020. Please check back soon!

Strange Crew is an Eric Clapton tribute band with a twist. The band puts on a fun, energetic and entertaining show. Strange Crew’s material not only covers Clapton's solo work but also performs work from the times he was a member of a band. These include: The Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreaker’s, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominoes. In addition to these standards, Strange Crew also performs any song Eric Clapton played at least once, and at any time, in his career. This opens up an incredible library of musical opportunities for Strange Crew. For example, Clapton has performed on tour in a supporting role such recognizable artists as Roger Waters, John Lennon, Steve Winwood, George Harrison, and Joe Cocker. He has recorded with and/or jammed with practically everyone. Strange Crew’s music goes from playing the very “wah-wah” drenched, heavy-blues Cream era music to other genres: blues, jam band, country rock, reggae, and straightforward rock and roll. These interpretative Clapton performances feature guitar pyrotechnics, thunderous tight drums, funky thick bass and beautiful backing vocals. The San Diego-based group is comprised of:
  • Phil Tish - lead vocals and guitar
  • Juliet Hawkins - vocals
  • Bobbi Baur - bass
  • Bahar Shahidi - guitar & vocals
  • Mike Reedy - drums
In the spirit of being involved in local music, Strange Crew also has guest appearances on any given night from local musicians. All the more reason to see the crew live —Strange Crew delivers a great night. It’s always, “Anything, Everything, Clapton.”
