Over the weekend, John Fogerty shared another at-home video performance from himself and the ‘Fogerty Factory,’ his children — Shane, Kelsy and Tyler.

It’s the latest installment in this running series of family band performances, which began showing up online during the first few weeks of COVID-19 pandemic quarantine and have been a great source of entertainment.

The latest is the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?,’ which Fogerty prefaced with this message:

This song is very special to me because it reminds me of my baby girl Kelsy. She is a rainbow in my life & this song has a rainbow in it. Fogerty Factory performs “Have You Ever Seen the Rain,” which was featured on on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. 🌈🌦

Other recent Fogerty Factory clips included this one, featuring some laughs, Fogerty talking about the family dogs waiting impatiently just outside the studio doors, before everybody launches into “Up Around the Bend”:

As well as this one, a campfire storytelling session high up in the hills, which was followed by “Green River”:

This intimate, slice-of-life concert series from Fogerty has been a delight ever since it began a few weeks back. And that’s entirely the point of the whole project, you see:

While self-quarantining together the Fogerty Family recreated the cover of Cosmo’s Factory transforming it to Fogerty’s Factory. The family have also taken to their home studio during this isolation to create some music together, The Family Band.

“Bringing a little light from our home to yours. We are having a little family fun together during the pandemic. It’s such a great feeling to be making and playin’ music surrounded by love. We all need to celebrate the life we have and remember how precious it is. I love music, I am listening every day. Makes everything feel better for me. Put the records on, pull out the old guitar, turn the radio up.. and dance to the music!” – John Fogerty
