CANNED HEAT

Canned Heat secured their niche in the pages of Rock & Roll history with their performances at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival (along with Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Who) and taking the headlining slot at the original Woodstock Festival in 1969.  The band had several worldwide hits, including “Going Up The Country” in 1969, which became a rock anthem for that era, throughout the world and was adopted as the unofficial theme song for the “summer of love”, and the entire “Woodstock Generation”.

The band can boast of collaborations with John Mayall and Little Richard and later with blues icon, John Lee Hooker, the musician that they initially got much of their musical inspiration from.  This union produced the spirited and revered album, “Hooker ‘n Heat.”  The band is also credited with bringing a number of other forgotten bluesmen to the forefront of modern blues including Sunnyland Slim, who they found driving a taxi in Chicago, Skip James, who they found in a hospital in Tunica, Mississippi and took to the Newport Festival, Memphis Slim and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown with whom they recorded in France and also Albert Collins.

On September 3rd, 1970, the band was shattered by the suicide of Alan Wilson.  His death sparked reconstruction within the group and member changes have continued throughout the past five decades. On April 5th, 1981, at the Palamino in Los Angeles, gargantuan vocalist, Bob Hite, collapsed and died of a heart attack and on October 20th, 1997, Henry Vestine died in Paris, France following the final gig of a European tour.  Last year, original bass player, Larry “The Mole” Taylor passed away following many years of battling cancer.

Despite these untimely deaths and assorted musical trends, Canned Heat has survived.  They have performed at world-renowned venues such as Paris’ Olympia, both Fillmore Auditoriums, The Kaleidoscope, Carnegie Hall (with John Lee Hooker), Madison Square Garden and even Royal Albert Hall and have played more festivals, biker gatherings and charity events than any other band in the world.  They and/or their music have been featured on television (In Concert, David Frost, Merv Griffin, Midnight Special, Playboy After Dark, etc.), and in films (“Woodstock,” “Flashback,” and “Forrest Gump”) etc.  Their legend has recently been heard and felt in various television commercials (“On The Road Again” for Miller Beer and Chevrolet, “Goin’ Up The Country” for Geico Insurance, Pepsi and McDonalds, “Let’s Work Together” for Target Stores and Amazon along with other songs for 7-Up, Levi’s and Heineken Beer).

In 2022, with forty albums to their credit, Canned Heat is still going strong.  They have been anchored throughout the years by the steady hand of drummer, band leader and historian, Adolfo “Fito” de la Parra. The current lineup also includes Dale Spalding on harmonica, guitar and lead vocals;  bassist, Rick Reed who became part of the lineup after stints with Paul Butterfield and John Mayall;  and the newest addition on lead guitar and vocals, the incredible Jimmy Vivino best known for his 28 year tenure as guitarist, arranger and music director for Late Night With Conan O’Brien.  Prior, he had a 20-year career playing with artists including Al Kooper, Charlie Musselwhite, Michael McDonald and many others.  The Music Room welcomes Canned Heat, a legendary and iconic band to grace its stage on September 23.  Rock & Roll Royalty in the house again!  Don’t miss it!

Why is there a difference in price for available seats at The Music Room?

All seating at The Music Room is acquired with a first come, first served basis approach.  The Music Room provides all patrons with a live musical experience above and beyond your average concert hall, and supporting this vision are the 4 tiers of available seats at The Music Room.  With a nod to classic record sales certification, the 4 tiers are:  Diamond, Double Platinum, Platinum, and Gold.  Seats range in price based on several factors including artist availability and distance to the stage.

Do you have the same number of seats for each tier?

No.  The Diamond tier of seats only has 12 seats available.  These seats are 4 top rounds located right at the foot of the stage.  You cannot get any closer to the artist than these 12 seats.  These are considered premium seats and are usually purchased by the most ardent fans.

The Double Platinum sections features 4 top square tables and one special 2 top rectangle, and there are 14 seats available.  Still very close to the stage, these seats provide an exceptional view and personal experience.  Table no. 7 is a 2 top rectangle that sits just to the right of the stage and back approximately 6 feet.  It is an extremely popular table.

The Platinum section of seats has a mixture of 4 top squares, two 3 high top rounds, and 9 drink rail seats that are bar height.  The total number of seats in the Platinum section is 37.  These are all excellent seats and reside in the main room.  Depending on a viewer’s personal taste, a table, a high top, or a drink rail might be the right choice, but they are all fabulous and unobstructed.

Gold seating is available in the bar area and can be considered first come, first serve general admission.  Most of the seats are unobstructed but depending how patrons sit at the bar or high tops, there might be a slight obstruction.   Standing room is permitted in the Gold section. The sound is excellent and most Gold level tickets are purchased by patrons that want to be near the bar specifically or by patrons wanting to be further away from the stage by design.  Please refer to our pictures to determine if this area is what you are looking for.  There are 24 Gold seats available and or Standing Room.
