As the driving force behind Cream, Blind Faith and Derek and the Dominoes, Clapton took the classic blues rock sound to new heights. But strip away the distortion, the fuzz pedals and the megawatt amps, and you’re left with some of the most gorgeous songwriting and musicianship of the classic rock era. Now you can enjoy unplugged versions of Clapton’s unforgettable songs by Spiros Soukis and Ben Tyree as they play “Layla” and other Clapton-penned love songs in this special acoustic guitar tribute at Club Bonafide in NYC. Soukis, a native of Greece, is a well-known blues man, performing regularly at B.B. King’s and other top clubs. He’s joined by Ben Tyree, Guitarist, performer and composer of virtuosic ability, infectious groove, and eclectic tastes. All of those elements are placed on stunning display on his latest release, Burn It! LIVE, a blistering live set from the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s prestigious BAMcafé Live series. That versatility has led to work with artists as diverse as Vernon Reid, Kyp Malone (TV On The Radio), Valerie June, Elliott Sharp, and Burnt Sugar: The Arkestra Chamber.
