The Music of Cream (50th anniversary) at the National

Tuesday, Oct. 30

In the movie “Good Fellas,” director Martin Scorsese weds one of the most memorable blues riffs (“Sunshine of Your Love”) from classic rock power trio Cream to the cold-blooded gaze of a ruthless gangster played by Robert DeNiro — and it works like a charm. If you missed the original group, this tribute act might be your next best chance. The band features Kofi Baker, son of wild man drummer Ginger Baker, Malcolm Bruce, son of bassist and vocalist Jack Bruce, and guitarist Will Johns, nephew of Eric Clapton. They’ve got the genetic connection down – now will they be worthy of a DeNiro close-up? $23 -$28. 7:30 p.m. thenationalva.com.
