MAIN STAGE bands:
Canned Heat will be performing on stage Saturday night at the 39th Annual Boogie Canned Heat The legendary band, who performed on Saturday at the original Woodstock festival in 1969, will be performing on Saturday night at the 39th Annual Boogie. They are most known for their hits “On The Road Again” in 1968, “Let’s Work Together” in 1970 and “Going Up The Country” in 1969, which all became rock anthems throughout the world, with the later being adopted as the unofficial theme song for the film Woodstock and the “Woodstock Generation.” (On stage Saturday night at the 39th Annual Boogie)
WoodstockStory.com — “They hit the Woodstock stage at about 7:30pm on Saturday, August 16th and kept the crowd dancing the entire time under a dark Bethel sky. The setlist featured their greatest hits including “Going up the Country”, “Let’s Work Together”, and “On the Road Again”. In the Woodstock film during the song “A Change is Gonna Come” there is footage of a fan climbing the stage and instead of kicking him off, Canned Heat singer Bob Hite shares a cigarette with him.” Website | Facebook | YouTube
Big Brother and the Holding Company will be performing on stage Friday night at the 39th Annual Boogie Big Brother and the Holding Company Big Brother & The Holding Company – along with bands like The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service – is considered one of the original, first wave of great psychedelic bands that came out of San Francisco in the summer of 1965 with legendary singer Janis Joplin. Their songs from the album “Cheap Thrills” and their first Mainstream album are now a part of Rock Music history. Their legacy as one of the great bands of the 1960s is secure. In their shows they perform all of their legendary songs; “Piece of My Heart”, “Summertime”, “Ball and Chain”, “Bye Bye Baby” as only the original creators of this music can. And to show that Big Brother is still a living, creative band they throw in a taste of new, original material that embodies the same signature, Big Brother ideas, and energy.

Randy Hansen will be performing on stage Saturday night at the 39th Annual Boogie Randy Hansen’s Jimi Hendrix Experience Forty years after his death, Jimi Hendrix is still leaving an impact on the music world. The recent release of Valleys of Neptune — a collection of previously unreleased studio recordings — rocketed Jimi to #4 on the Billboard 200 Chart, making it the highest-charting album of his career. While the legend of this true “guitar hero” lives on, no one celebrates it more than the remarkable Randy Hansen.
For over thirty years, Hansen has been building a reputation as the foremost Hendrix tribute on Earth. As one of the few players officially recognized by the Hendrix family, he has been successfully doing his act since the ’70s, stunning audiences worldwide as he channels the spirit of Jimi and perfectly recreates the stage presence and skill of the legendary axeman. Aside from his loyal fanbase, Hansen’s guitar work is respected throughout the music business. He’s played alongside some of the greats, including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Miller, Paul Rodgers, Herbie Hancock, and original Jimi Hendrix Experience members Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell… Also original Band Of Gypsies members, Buddy Miles and Billy Cox. (On stage Saturday night at the 39th Annual Boogie)
WoodstockStory.com “Experiencing Jimi Hendrix live at Woodstock in 1969 may have been the most surreal moment anyone could possibly feel after 3 spacey days of living life. I’ve heard some describe it as a strong sense of deja vu. Anyone who has ever experienced The Jimi Hendrix Experience should right now take a moment to remember the grooves coming out these cat’s earthly instruments…for real.”
The Who Generation will be performing on stage Friday night at the 39th Annual Boogie The Who Generation A tribute to The Who, including much of the stage presence and antics of the wild yet talented and influential band. Though we may not completely destroy our instruments on stage, the Who Generation WILL give you the illusion of seeing and hearing one of the greatest rock bands, performing some of the greatest songs ever written! If you’re ready for an exciting and dynamic rock show, get ready for the Who Generation! (On stage Friday night at the 39th Annual Boogie)
WoodstockStory.com — “At 5am on Sunday just before the Jefferson Airplane took the Woodstock stage, the rock outfit The Who played their rock opera titled “Tommy”. The story of a deaf, dumb, and blind boy who is cured of his ailments and gains stardom became a legendary performance. Although not an apex performance in the Who’s career, Woodstock helped solidify the band’s place in rock history.”
