Hippie Fest ~Keswick Theatre, Glenside, PA July 28, 2018

Hippee Fest


At a last minutes moment, I decided to go to the Hippie Fest held at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, PA, right outside of Philadelphia, PA. The show featured 4 great artists that in their time had some of the biggest hits on the charts. Starting off the set was Joey Molland of Badfinger with the great Rick Derringer playing guitar for him. The other 3 musicians, I could not get their name, but they were great. Joey Molland did 4 of Badfinger’s great hits, such as “Come And Get It”, “Day After Day” & more. Next on the set was Mitch Ryder, again with the same musicians, and he played such classics as “Sock It To Me”, “Jenny Jenny/Devil With A Blue Dress” & more. He did some great introductions before the songs as well. The third up was Rick Derringer, which I was really excited to see. He played hits from many bands that he was in, such as The McCoys, Edgar Winter Band & of course, solo. He played hits such as “Hang On Sloopy”, Free Ride, Rock & Roll Hootchie Koo & a great rendition of “Frankenstein” with no keyboards. Very impressive. He also played more. Last but not least, was, Vanilla Fudge, with 3 of the original members, Mark Stein on keyboards & vocals, Vince Martell on guitar & vocals, & the great Carmine Appice on drums. Also on bass, was Pete Bremy, who sang some great harmonies with both the band & with Carmine when they did back up vocals for others during the show. Of course, you know that I love to see a show at the Keswick Theatre. Tonight was no exception. Everyone at the Keswick gave everyone kindness & respect. If in the Philadelphia area, go see a show there. You will not be disappointed. I give this show 5 out of 5 Music Guru stars. Highly recommended.
