Ginger played the Mojo a couple of times with Graham Bond but I don't think Cream ever played there and certainly not the Blue Moon. I've seen all three members of Cream play the Mojo but with other groups before Cream were formed. 

 All I can find about the original Cream playing in Sheffield is October 1966 ,at the University:

I know his daughter Leda,VERY well,she lived  a few doors up from me in sunbury back in the day,met Ginger numerous times,fearsome bloke with a hell of a temper and HUGE heroin addiction,Leda was his favorite kid,he adored her and she him,they had a true bond.

Last time I saw him was 2016 and he looked really ill lost tuns of weight and his voice was shallow,sad to see

Yes, but I thought we were talking about Ginger Baker, lol.

I saw Eric at the Mojo with both John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and the Yardbirds.
