Canned Heat (US)
Wednesday, March 28 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
Canned Heat has been a global phenomenon for 40 years due to their classic hits such as “On The Road Again”. They first gained international attention and secured their niche in the pages of rock ‘n roll history with their performances at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival (along with Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Who) and as headliners at the original Woodstock Festival in 1969.
Their take on modern electric Blues, Rock and Boogie has earned them a loyal following and influenced many aspiring guitarists and bands during the past four decades. Their Top-40 Country-Blues-Rock songs, “On The Road Again,” “Let’s Work Together,” and “Going Up The Country,” became anthems throughout the world with the latter being adopted as the unofficial theme song for the film Woodstock. Their cover version of Wilbert Harrison’s “Let’s Work Together” was actually their biggest hit as it rose to #1 in 31 different countries around the world.
Bluesfest Touring is proud to bring this legendary band back to Australia to share their unique blend of roadhouse electric blues, rock and boogie.
