Mark Stein is the lead vocalist, keyboardist of "Vanilla Fudge". Mark first founded the Vanilla Fudge in 1966 at the age of 18, with members Tim Bogert, Vinny Martell, and Carmine Appice. In the short time they were together the band enjoyed their first giant success with their first Atco release self titled "Vanilla Fudge".

This was a ground breaking album since it was the first album to reach top ten on Billboard's charts without a hit single. The legendary rock arrangement of "You Keep Me Hangin' On" became their first hit single some two years after the release of the first album.

During the late 60's the Fudge were one of rock's most exciting high energy touring bands, setting the stage for the likes of Jimmy Hendrix, Deep Purple, and even Led Zeppelin. These legendary rockers spread their musical and performing influences throughout the world, and it has been quoted in print by many of today's classic rock stars such as Led Zeppelin, Yes, Deep Purple, and others that Vanilla Fudge had a profound effect during the musical renaissance of the late 60's, that carried through to the present.

In classic rock circles, Vanilla Fudge is identified by Stein's Hammond B-3 organ sound that helped bring the instrument into a prominent place in progressive rock. As a teen, Mark was influenced by Jimmy Smith when it came to jazz and funk, and Felix Cavaliere when it came to rock and soul. His dynamic style was an influence on a host of players early on from Deep Purple, Jon Lord (RIP) to even Paul Schaffer of the Dave Letterman show.

Mark recorded a solo CD entitled "White Magik" with his all star band Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets) on bass, Bobby Rondinelli (Black Sabbath) on drums, John McCurry (Paul McCartney/Julian Lennon) on guitars and Jim Campagnola (Eric Clapton/Natalie Cole) on sax.

With the new Vanilla Fudge release of Spirit of 67' on Cleopatra Records, Mark will be touring and promoting the new album and Rockin' into 2017 celebrating the bands 50th Anniversary and beyond.
