ten years after hot flashes edgar winter band rick derringer news canned heat pat travers

The summertime blues are back and better than ever as the popular Rock'N'Blues Fest tour returns for a second consecutive year with such well-known artists as TEN YEARS AFTER, EDGAR WINTER BAND, CANNED HEAT, RICK DERRINGER, and PAT TRAVERS.

All inspired to pick up their instruments due to their love for rock and blues, these five artists will be hitting the road together for approximately a month beginning July 27th at The Cannery Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"All the members of Ten Years After are enthusiastic about reuniting with Edgar, Rick and especially Canned Heat again," states Ric Lee. "Original members Chick Churchill, Leo Lyons and I first performed alongside Canned Heat at the legendary Fillmore Ballroom on our first tour of the United States in 1968 and have remained good friends ever since. We are also excited to tour the US as we pay tribute to band-mate Alvin Lee, while igniting a new wave of youthful excitement and appeasing long-term fans."

Alvin Lee passed away earlier this year from "unforeseen complications following a routine surgical procedure".

Edgar Winter states: "This is Edgar Winter, and we will be rockin' the blues again this year on the Rock'N'Blues Fest Tour. For those of you who saw us last year, we will be doing a new and very different show. 2013 marks the fortieth year since the release of 'Frankenstein' and 'Free Ride' on the album, They Only Come Out At Night. So we intend to celebrate the occasion by playing some of the songs from that album I haven't done in years - like 'We All Had A Real Good Time,' 'Hangin' Around,' and 'Undercover Man.' We are very excited, this one's going to be a blast! It means the world to me to be playing the music I love, and see you all out there having a good time. So we look forward to seeing you at one of the shows, and get ready to ROCK 'n' ROLL!!!"

"We are all looking forward to a great tour with our longtime friends of Ten Years After and Edgar Winter," says Skip Taylor, Canned Heat's longtime manager. "It should be as much fun for us as for the audience."

Says Rick Derringer: "I am so excited to be part of a tour that has some of my favorite artists on it playing some of best music ever written and performed."

And Pat Travers relays a short message: "This is Pat Travers and I'm champing at the bit to get the chance to play a lot of Rockin' Blues on the Blues Fest Tour this Summer 2013."
