Come join us at The Cutting Room to see The Buddy Rich Band!

The Buddy Rich Band has all of the excitement, drive, and showmanship that Buddy brought throughout his career. Not a tribute, not The Next Buddy Rich, but a full blown sixteen piece big band charging through Buddy's original charts playing classics like Mercy, Mercy, Love For Sale, Nutville, and Birdland, along with new charts just as BR would have played them. An incredible group of talented musicians that bring Buddy's music into the present day. This is not your grandparents music! No nostalgia. This is a contemporary take on a classic style. Buddy never looked back. He was a musical visionary who was always ahead of the curve. The band has toured from New York to London, Hollywood to Tokyo.

This band features EMMY Award winning drummer Gregg Potter, who not only brings his power and charismatic drumming style to the music, but also possesses a stage presence and technique that would make Buddy proud. Cathy Rich, Buddy's daughter, hosting the evening and singing, is as close as one could get to having Buddy there. With tales from the road and home, growing up with this "one of a kind" music legend makes this multi media presentation a guaranteed hit. "Come and see the show!"

Special guest Carmine Appice!! As drummer for Vanilla Fudge, Carmine Appice set the grooves for the groundbreaking band‘s 1967 psychedelic debut, inadvertently inventing Stoner Rock in the process. The Fudge had no precedent. The band was totally unique. No rock group, up until that point, had ever so lugubriously s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d out well-known pop tunes like the Beatles “Eleanor Rigby” and “Ticket To Ride,” Curtis Mayfield‘s “People Get Ready,” Sonny & Cher‘s “Bang Bang” Rod Argent‘s “She‘s Not There” and, most famously, The Supremes‘ Motown classic “You Keep Me Hangin‘ On” to such hippie heights. With Mark Stein‘s mysterioso wash of Grand Guignol keyboard theatrics, Tim Bogert‘s amazing and trippy bass runs, and guitarist Vince Martell‘s era-happy soloing, Appice boomed like no other drummer in rock history. Their debut album still stands today as a Hard Rock classic. Vanilla Fudge went on to tour with Jimi Hendrix, Cream, and even had Led Zeppelin as an opening act.
