Hi all,
Vanilla Fudge is coming to my town next week and the description says all original members except the bass player. If you have gone to see them in the last couple of years I would welcome your comments. Thanks in advance.

Love the Fudge! But without Tim Bogert? He was one of the main cogs in that band. I just hope he's in good health. Tim and Carmine were present for the Cactus reunion about 5 years ago. Of course, Cactus without original singer, Rusty Day was also pretty hard for me to fathom.

If you go - please report back!

I saw them a few years ago at the Irvington Town hall in NY. Its a very small venue and we had 10th row center seats. It was billed as the Fudge reunion but I was disappointed that Tim Bogert was not there. I believe he was recovering from a motorcycle accident at the time of the show and has now retired from touring according the VF website. I enjoyed the show; they did all their hits/covers but stretched them out way too far. It was cool to see Carmine Appice and I was even able to sneak in during the sound check! They stayed after the show and signed autographs for everyone who wanted them and chatted extensively. Vince Martell asked me which of the two guitars he used sounded better and was genuinely interested in what I had to say. It was not expensive so if you have the chance I would suggest you see them.

I saw them on June 14th of 2013. I enjoyed the show from start to finish. The band members stayed after the show to chat with fans, pose for pictures and sign autographs.
Here are a few pictures I took at the show...











And some links to video (not mine) from the show. Another fan recorded the videos on his camera.
