Yeah, the wikipedia was easy to understand, its basically another name for a main riff, its a repeating piece of music, usually used in jazz and soul.
I've got a bike you can ride it if you like
What the hell has this got to do with Behringer amps?

OP: In jazz, we call a repeating chord, or short chord sequence a vamp.

What don't you understand about what it says on Wikipedia?

Quote by Wiki
A vamp is a repeating musical figure or accompaniment. A vamp typically outlines a single harmony, or in some cases a familiar sequence of chords...

This explains it perfectly..
What is going on in this thread? A vamp is just basically a jam or groove, a repeating chord progression. Nothing to do with gear or creatures or anything else.
Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.

I love you all no matter what.

It looks pretty understandable for me. And it's repeating a chord sequence, often used in jazz, giving lead instrument place to improvise, not a riff.
And few first posts are just idiotic.
