Vanilla Fudge celebrates their 50th anniversary at Narrows Center


Legendary rock band Vanilla Fudge are celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2017 and they are making a stop at the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River, Mass., on April 5th with special guest Paul Bielatowicz. It will be the first time the band has appeared at this intimate venue. Purchase tickets HERE.

Since the summer of 1967, Vanilla Fudge were architects of a new musical style that included psychedelic, rock, soul music and gospel. They were, and are masters of reinterpreting other artist’s hit songs, and their effect on the soon to explode late 60’s “heavy metal” scene was undeniable.

To be an influence on the likes of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Van Halen certainly secures a place in rock n roll history for the legendary Vanilla Fudge.

Now celebrating their 50th anniversary, the powerhouse vocals and keyboard flourishes of virtuoso organist Mark Stein, along with the fluid guitar explosions of Vinnie Martell, all anchored by arguably one of the best rhythm sections in the history of rock music, with the legendary Carmine Appice on drums and Pete Bremy on bass (filling in for the retired Tim Bogert), they create a sound so unique that it cannot be imitated. Your spirit will jettison right back to a “happening” in that magical summer of 1967, and this “happening” needs to be felt live to truly be appreciated!

Paul Bielatowicz, who is best known for his virtuoso guitar work with some of the biggest names in progressive rock including Carl Palmer (Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Asia) and Neal Morse (Spock’s Beard), will open the show!

The Narrows Center is located at 16 Anawan Street in Fall River, Mass. Tickets to this show can be purchased online by clicking HERE or by calling the box office at 508-324-1926. For those wanting to purchase tickets in person, box office hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 12 noon to 5 p.m.

  1. Vanilla Fudge put on a great live show in Del Mar, CA in 3 years ago. They are incredibly excellent. Enjoyed the show, Surf Nantasket Beach back in 1968. Tim blew out an Ampeg speaker, the roadie was right on it. Led Zeppelin was their back up band, right Vinnie? Anxious to hear the new VF release of Led Zepp songs. . .
