Considered by legions of fans and allmusic.com to be the link between heady psychedelia and early heavy metal, Vanilla Fudge is best known for their sludgy reinventions of formerly peppy ‘60s pop hits. Their legendary take on “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” resembles the one made famous by Diana Ross and the Supremes, but only in an alternate universe where the Supremes had their hearts broken by wizards. Likewise, their acid-rock freakout of “Ticket to Ride” makes The Beatles seem abstemious.
With original members Mark Stein on vocals and baroque organ, Vince Martell on vocals and guitar, and Carmine Appice on vocals and detonating double-bass drums, Vanilla Fudge electrifies the audience on their 2013 tour. Fans can expect cuts from the Box of Fudge career retrospective box set, including an occult rendition of “Season of the Witch” that would give Donovan the willies and an elegant take on Curtis Mayfield’s “People Get Ready.”
Bergen Performing Arts Center
In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the venue hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on the stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.
