Enter to win tickets: Rockers Carmine and Vinny Appice bring their band to Bucks

Drummer Carmine Appice will perform with his brother, Vinny, as the Appice Brothers at the Sellersville Theater, 24 W. Temple Ave., Sellersville, at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6.

They’ll perform with their All-Star Band as both brothers trade thunderous riffs and solos while performing some of the tracks they helped make famous in their respective bands … including Ozzy, Black Sabbath, Dio, Blue Murder, Rod Stewart and more.

The show will also include tracks from the brothers’ 2017 album, “Sinister,” and the guys will tell humorous tales and anecdotes from throughout their careers.

Enter to win tickets for two to the show via the Bucks County Herald Facebook page, or by emailing by Jan. 30; or purchase tickets on the Sellersville Theater website or by calling the theater at 215-257-5808.

Carmine has pounded the skins for rockers like Ozzy Osbourne, Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart (Carmine co-wrote the hits “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” and “Young Turks” with Stewart) and is a founding member of 60s rock bands Vanilla Fudge (“You Keep Me Hanging On,” the band’s classic hit in 1967, was featured prominently in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) and Cactus.

He was inducted into the Classic Drummer Hall of Fame in 2013 and the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 2014.

His best-selling drum instruction book, “The Realistic Rock Drum Method,” was first published in 1972, and has since been revised and republished as “The Ultimate Realistic Rock Drum Method.”

Carmine also published his best-selling memoir, “Stick It!: My Life of Sex, Drums & Rock ‘n’ Roll,” in 2016.

Vinny has lent his drum thunder to Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven and Hell, among others.
