Canned Heat brought the blues to Sweetwater Music Hall Friday night, celebrating 50 years of rock and roll. Supported by Jeffrey Halford and The Healers, who warmed the crowd up with their own awesome bluesy rock, Canned Heat skyrocketed the audience to a boogie-bounce groove, which spread like wildfire through the room. With their rich, righteous sounds of rhythm and blues, Canned Heat entertained Sweetwater all night long, bringing the spectrum of new followers and old-school devotees to their feet, diminishing numbers and years with feel good-tunes. Finishing their set, each musician enjoyed a solo section on stage showcasing their individual skills most triumphantly.
