Lydia Pense & Cold Blood return to the Lincoln as a co-presentation with the Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts this time featuring Fred Ross, legendary singer for Tower of Power and Pee Wee Ellis!
Lydia Pense & Cold Blood debuted when the Fillmore was at its peak as one of the nation's musical Meccas. Owner Bill Graham was so impressed with Lydia's voice and the sound of the band that he immediately signed Cold Blood to his new record label. During the span of six original late-60's, early-70's albums, Lydia Pense & Cold Blood helped, along with Tower Of Power, forge their own specific brand of funk/soul and R&B which came to be known as East Bay Grease. That music still holds up today, proving that great music is timeless and will continue to inspire generations to come.
Fred Ross has toured the U.S. and Europe for the past Thriteen Years with legends of Funk Pee Wee Ellis, Fred Wesley, & Maceo Parker (formerly of the James Brown Band).
