Kofi Baker started playing drums at age six, under the tutelage of Dad, legendary drummer Ginger Baker of Cream fame. Jack Bruce's kid, Malcolm Bruce, started playing early too, studying at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, and eventually following his dad's footsteps turning to blues-rock guitar and vocals. Now in their 30s, the two plus guitarist Godfrey Townsend make up Sons of Cream.
Cream was intact only a few short, golden years (three, in fact) before guitarist Eric Clapton parted ways with the screaming licks in '68, while Baker and Bruce went on to make some widely varied music themselves. The pulsing, sonic energy of classic Cream shines through when Sons of Cream takes the stage. Baker's drumming is polyrhythmic and strong, driving the songs with an almost orchestral power and Bruce's vocals are sultry -- reminiscent of early Mick Jagger, his guitar work is sophisticated. The band is making their own mark and they’re ready to bathe in the sunshine of your love.
