Two great Classic Rock Bands, Vanilla Fudge and The Yardbirds together in the same night!
The Yardbirds have a long and storied history, and were part of the “British Invasion” of bands that broke out of the UK in the 1960s. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and were included in Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time”, as well as VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock”. Their hit songs include; “For Your Love”, “Train Kept A Rollin”, “I’m A Man”, “Heart Full Of Soul”, “Evil Hearted You”, “Shapes Of Things”, “Over Under Sideways Down”, “Mister You’re A Better Man Than I”, and many more.
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 eventually morph into heavy metal. They were best known for their dramatic heavy, slowed-down arrangements of contemporary pop songs which they developed into works of epic proportion. Their hits include “You Keep Me Hanging On”, “Shotgun”, “Bang Bang”, “Season Of The Witch”, “Take Me For A Little While”, “Eleanor Rigby”, and “She’s Not There”.
