2012 Music Festival


The Mid Summers Night Music Festival returns to our stage on Saturday July 21st, 2012 starting at 4pm. This is a FREE concert. Bring a blanket or a lawn chair to enjoy the music. Please no coolers or outside food or beverages. These items will be confiscated.

SLOWHAND, the ultimate Eric Clapton Tribute Show, recreates a live "Eric Clapton" concert complete with the music, the look, and the guitars. Entertaining audiences since 1994, Slowhand has been performing the timeless music of Eric Clapton's solo career, along with the mega-hit songs of Cream, Blind Faith, and Derek & the Dominoes.

This first-class tribute provides exceptional quality entertainment for casinos, festivals, fairs, corporate events, theaters, concerts, parties, clubs, and weddings. As the number one Eric Clapton Tribute in the USA, fans and venues both give Slowhand great reviews for their professional, family-friendly show that entertains audiences of all ages.

SLOWHAND performs all music and vocals live with no tracks, sequencers, or electronic harmonizers. Rick performs the role of Eric Clapton, singing the lead vocals and playing lead guitar. Outstanding harmony vocals and music provided by four additionally talented musicians. To duplicate the famous "Eric Clapton" guitar tone, Rick exclusively uses Eric Clapton signature guitars like the ones played by Mr. Clapton in concert today, including a Martin 000-28 Acoustic for the unplugged segment, a custom-painted psychedelic SG for the Cream segment, 2 custom-painted Fender Stratocaster's, and of course Blackie.

SLOWHAND looks forward to seeing you at the "Crossroads" for a "Wonderful Tonight" performance! *
