Hearty Har released its debut album, Radio Astro, in February 2021. You can listen to a track from it below.

John, Shane and Tyler Fogerty were all featured on the Fogerty’s Factory album, recorded during the pandemic and released in September 2020.

“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,” John Fogerty said in a press release. “I was in a band with my brother when I started my music career … I am so happy to see my sons sharing the love of music together, what a thrill that is.”

John Fogerty’s brother Tom, of course, co-founded the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group Creedence Clearwater Revival with him in the ’60s. The two also played together in the earlier bands, The Blue Velvets and The Golliwogs.

Here is “Fare Thee Well,” from the Radio Astro album:

Hearty Har is a horrible band!! Can’t believe they are opening for Fogerty!!
Never paying for Fogerty again. Sorely disappointed and angry! So here it is almost 9pm and Fogerty hasn’t appeared yet! Put his son’s awful band on instead. Why would anyone think s “psyodelic band” appeal to Fogerty fans!!

I could not agree more, Kathryn. Hearty Har is horrible horrible horrible. No way in hell they could have gotten anywhere near the prestigeous iconic Radio City stage if they were’nt riding on the coattails of their famous father. What a waste of my time and money. I did not appreciate John Fogerty forcing his no-talent sons on his loyal fans.
