Rocky Zharp and the Blues Crackers band perform on stage Saturday, July 21, at the Diamond Valley Arts Center, 123 N. Harvard St., in Hemet. The band includes, from right, Rocky Zharp on guitar and harmonica, Jerry Cox on electric bass, Michael Romaine on drums and Dan Kennedy on lead guitar and ukulele.

What was it? Blues rock, boogie rock or electric blues? It was none other than Rocky Zharp and the Blues Crackers on stage at Diamond Valley Arts Center Saturday, July 21, that rocked historic downtown Hemet.

Canned Heat, the legendary American Blues band, would have been delighted to hear Rocky and his bandmates playing some of their best blues tunes like "On the Road Again," "Let's Work Together," "Got My Mojo Working" and "Grandma's Boogie."

"Wait a minute. Grandma's Boogie. Was that Canned Heat?" Rocky Zharp, leader of the band, quipped to the questioning glances from the audience.
