Vanilla Fudge stands out as an iconic American rock band, renowned for their masterful reinterpretations of contemporary hit songs, notably exemplified by their rendition of “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.” The original lineup boasted exceptional talents, including Mark Stein, Tim Bogert, Vince Martell, and Carmine Appice. Presently, Vanilla Fudge continues to captivate audiences on their tour with three of the original quartet: Mark Stein, Vince Martell, and Carmine Appice, complemented by Pete Bremy, who assumed Tim Bogert’s role upon his retirement in 2009.

Beyond their musical prowess, Vanilla Fudge occupies a pivotal position in music history, often recognized as a critical connection between the realms of psychedelia and the burgeoning heavy metal genre. The band’s far-reaching influence extends to major acts like The Nice, Deep Purple, Yes, Styx, Led Zeppelin, and Uriah Heep.

About Vanilla Fudge
Vanilla Fudge was one of the first American groups to infuse psychedelia into a heavy rock sound to create “psychedelic symphonic rock” an eclectic genre which would, among its many offshoots, eventually morph into heavy metal. At first, the band did not record original material, they were best known for their dramatic heavy, slowed-down arrangements of contemporary pop songs which they developed into works of epic proportion. Originally, Vanilla Fudge was a blue-eyed soul cover band called The Pigeons, formed in New Jersey in 1965. In late 1966, organist, Mark Stein, bassist, Tim Bogert and guitarist, vocalist and US Navy veteran, Vince Martell drafted drummer and vocalist, Carmine Appice, a disciple of the renowned Joe Morello (Dave Brubeck Band) and a seasoned veteran of the club scene. They re-emerged in early 1967 and started recording demos. Impressed by their heavy-rocking, trippy and psychedelic version of The Supremes’ “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” the band landed a deal with the Atlantic subsidiary Atco. The label, however, insisted on a name change and the band settled on Vanilla Fudge. After all, they were a white group singing and playing with the soul of the brothers.
