The Details: Vanilla Fudge is one of the legendary names in Rock and Roll history and were truly innovators of sound from the very beginning. They were most commonly known as being the band that took songs that were already popular and known and morphing them into wild Psychedelic renditions that twisted and took you to a different space in your music appreciating mind. Formed in 1966 by Mark Stein, Vince Martell, Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice, the band released five albums in full before disbanding. They’ve been back to a full scale reunion charge for the past few years and I am happy to report that in the 2015 ever changing music geography of the world that the band still performs with three of its original four members. This March the band releases their first new album in several years entitled “The Spirit Of 67” and they will surely be playing tunes from this album at the show. That said I am psyched to be offering my PiercingMetal readers the chance to see this incredible band for free thanks to the fine folks at B.B. King Blues Club where they will be performing once again. Read more on how to participate below.
When and Where: Friday, February th at B.B. King Blues Club 7:00pm (237 West 42nd Street NYC)
