Recorded live at The Fillmore East in New York City N.Y. on December 31st, 1969 & January 1st, 1970, the Band of Gypsys debut recording consisted of six tracks released to the public on March 25th, 1970 – close to fifty years ago. That vinyl record established the template for the Funk & Roll genre.

The re-releases, with new tracks & multiple versions of the six tracks from the Fillmore shows, illuminated that Jimi Hendrix, Billy Cox, and Buddy Miles never played a tune the same way twice, breaking away from the “note-by-note” live renditions prevalent in Pop & Rock hit songs at that time. This “breaking away” also highlighting BOG’s use of improvisational interplay within the Pop/Rock song structure, which up to that time, had usually been exercised by Jazz musicians.

The Vernon Reid Band of Gypsys Revisited Band (VR-BOG-RB) have known each other since 1985, sharing the stage in bands such as the Screaming Headless Torsos, Yohimbe Brothers, Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber and The Black Rock Coalition Big Band.

Thirty-three years later these four riff-loving Playas are fusing to groove once again.

In the spirit of revisiting, refreshing and further exploring the fun, funk & roll of the “Band of Gypsys Live at The Fillmore East” recording, Vernon Reid, André ‘Dré Glo’ Lassalle, James “Biscuit” Rouse, and Jared Michael Nickerson as VR-BOG-RB excitedly look forward to bringing this limited edition performance to your hamlet, city, town, or county fair in 2018.

As the lead guitarist and founder of Living Colour and a co-founder of the Black Rock Coalition, Vernon Reid has done a great deal to undermine stereotypical expectations of what kinds of music black artists ought to play; his rampant eclecticism encompasses everything from hard rock and punk to funk, R&B and avant-garde jazz, and his anarchic, lightning-fast solos have become something of a hallmark as well.
