Vince Martell

Vinny Martell, lead guitarist of Vanilla Fudge, and U.S. Navy Veteran, has received wide acclaim and worldwide recognition for the musicianship and originality that have etched out his place in the annals of rock history. His riff in the Vanilla Fudge chart topper, "You Keep Me Hangin' On," is ranked the number four heaviest guitar riff of all time by Guitar Magazine. The Vanilla Fudge's symphonic rock remake of this Supremes' hit placed them at number six on the Billboard Charts in the U.S.A. and at number two on the charts in England, second only to The Beatles. Martell's original, "Thoughts," a B-side to "Take Me for a Little While," went to number six on Italy's Rock Charts.

In the twenty-first century, Vinny has reunited with Vanilla Fudge and has toured the USA, playing to packed houses. His discography includes three solo CD's, the latest a Tribute to Jimi Hendrix, as well as a Vanilla Fudge tribute to Led Zeppelin.

The Vince Martell Live Group, Vinny's solo project, has played to sold-out audiences in the tri-state area, including a recent stint with Blue Oyster Cult at The Chance Theatre in Poughkeepsie, New York.

Vinny also leads the Vince Martell Band, featuring Vince on Guitar and Lead/Background Vocals, Peg Pearl on Keyboards and Vocals, Pete Bremy of Vanilla Fudge on Bass and Vocals, Russ T. Blades of Joe Lynn Turner's Rainbow on Drums, and Joe Brennan on Percussion.

"A more soulful shredder may not exist in all of classic rock."

- Ray Manzarek, Doors
