HIPPIEFEST: TEN YEARS AFTER, BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY, VANILLA FUDGE

August 18 @ 6:30 pm   |  
Au-Rene Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts
| $49.00 - $69.00

Hippiefest returns to Fort Lauderdale this summer celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival. Formed in 1966, Ten Years After finally got people to take notice after their incendiary performance at the original Woodstock festival. From there, Alvin Lee along with Ric Lee on drums, Leo Lyons on bass and Chick Churchill on organ, pushed the boundaries of the blues-rock format and in the process made classic albums, including the festival staple “I’m Going Home”. Big Brother & the Holding Company, along with bands like The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane are considered one of the original, first wave of great psychedelic bands. Along with Janis Joplin, they embodied the San Francisco counter-culture sound of the 60’s. Vanilla Fudge was one of the first American groups to infuse psychedelia into a heavy rock sound to create “psychedelic symphonic rock”. After appearing on the Ed Sullivan Show, the band scored big with “You Keep Me Hangin’ On”.
