VANILLA FUDGE; Iconic Psychedelic Rock Band Releases New DVD/CD, Live At Sweden Rock - The 50th Anniversary

NEW YORK - As they celebrate a half-century of cutting edge music and live performances, VANILLA FUDGE will release the CD/DVD of LIVE AT SWEDEN ROCKS - THE 50th ANNIVERSARY. Available December 8th on MIG Records and distributed by MVD, LIVE AT SWEDEN ROCK presents the band in its rawest and most honest setting. Guitar, bass, drums and keyboards hold down the music, while the perfectly blended voices of the group provide the color behind the compelling lead vocals of Mark Stein.  The result is a band that sounds just as strong and relevant today as it did in 1967.

"Quite honestly, even though Vanilla Fudge has been together for half a century," says lead vocalist and keyboardist Mark Stein, "I really never tire of playing these songs and arrangements because the energy level never seems to dissipate."
