Blues ‘n’ boogie, boogie ‘n’ blues, no matter which way you phrase it only one name rises to the top: Canned Heat.

One of the unsung heroes of 60’s rock, famed as one of its best live acts and one of its most enduring forces, Canned Heat are on their way down under to share their unique blend of roadhouse electric blues, rock and boogie. Having secured their niche in the pages of rock ‘n’ roll history with performances alongside Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who and at the original Woodstock Festival in ’69, their legacy has influenced many aspiring guitarists and bands throughout the decades.

Listen to the band perform their rock anthems ‘On The Road Again’, ‘Let’s Work Together’ and ‘Going Up The Country’ and other familiar hits from their massive back catalogue of an incredible 32 studio albums, 10 live albums and countless releases.

Canned Heat use the old folk blues style played by legends such as John Lee Hooker as a platform, enriched it with driving boogie elements and serve it with a psychedelic vibe. With a touch of nostalgia and a ton of musical merit, Canned Heat brings the fun factor to the stage carrying the boogie-blues it made famous, well into the 21st century.
