(Los Angeles, CA) – June 14, 2022 – Hall of Famer, JOHN FOGERTY, is back on the road this summer and he’s making it a real family affair. Hearty Har, featuring sons Shane and Tyler, will open a number of shows on Fogerty’s Travelin' Band Tour. Beginning this weekend with two shows in Washington, Fogerty will perform his hits from Creedence Clearwater Revival and more. The dates continue through mid-September with more dates to be announced.

The Fogerty family are no strangers to working and touring together. Shane has been a fixture in the Fogerty band for nearly 10 years and the brothers spent much of 2020 playing music together in their home studio with Dad, John, while quarantined, releasing videos weekly to eager fans who were looking for an escape and found that in the familiar music of John Fogerty. In 2020 the Family appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, NPR’s Tiny Desk and Rolling Stone among others. The performances culminated into an album, Fogerty’s Factory, which was released in September 2020 via BMG.

Hearty Har, a psychedelic rock band, formed in 2012 and released their debut album, Radio Astro, in February 2021 via BMG. With critics such as Buzzbands LA calling the work, “melodically sublime” and Glide Magazine concurring saying the album is “…a real mind-melter.” The band heralded coverage with the Associated Press, American Songwriter, Paste, Relix and more.

“It is with the greatest joy to see my son’s Shane and Tyler creating great music with their own unique sound that I love. I was in a band with my brother when I started my music career. Full Circle and I am so happy to see my son’s, (brothers) sharing the love of music together, what a thrill that is,” says Fogerty.

While Shane and Tyler echo their father’s sentiments of the upcoming live performances, “We’re really looking forward to jamming with our dad this summer and also getting the unique opportunity to open the show. It will be a classic night of rock and roll and some fun surprises,” said Shane. With Tyler adding, “I'm very excited to share the stage with my Dad and brother again this summer and bring our own band Hearty Har along as well. Definitely one for the books, a summer filled with musical highs!”
