Giants of rock and blues Johnny Winter Band, Edgar Winter Band, Vanilla Fudge, Peter Rivera (Rare Earth) and Kim Simmonds (Savoy Brown) bring hot fun in the summertime to the Broward Center with the Rock ‘N’ Blues Festival. Joining Johnny for the Rock ‘N’ Blues “ride” will be his younger brother, Edgar Winter, who has certainly met with considerable acclaim in his own right with such monster FM radio hits as “Free Ride” and the chart-topping rocker, “Frankenstein.”

Vanilla Fudge is a rock band featuring original members Mark Stein on organ, lead guitarist Vince Martell, drummer Carmine Appice, and bassist Pete Bremy. They have a number of hit singles, their biggest “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” a slowed-down, trippy, hard rock cover of a song originally recorded by The Supremes, which particularly featured Appice’s energetic drumming.
