Canned Heat

EGYPTIAN THEATRE
Jan 11 - 13

A unique blend of modern electric blues, rock, and boogie which influenced many aspiring guitarists and bands throughout the history of modern American music.

Canned Heat rose to fame because their knowledge and love of blues music was both wide and deep. Emerging in 1966, Canned Heat was founded by blues historians and record collectors Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson and Bob “The Bear” Hite. Drawing on an encyclopedic knowledge of all phases of the genre, the group specialized in updating obscure old blues recordings. Applying this bold approach, the band attained two worldwide hits, “On The Road Again” in 1968 and “Going Up The Country” in 1969. These were inspired interpretations of the late 1920s blues recordings by Floyd Jones and Henry Thomas.

Top-40 songs "On The Road Again", "Let's Work Together", and "Going Up The Country" became rock anthems throughout the world!
