Grand    Funk    Railroad    Tribute

Throughout the late '60s and early 70s, Grand Funk Railroad was the top selling American rock band. They had 4 World Tours selling out in the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan and South America. Their 1971 performance at Shea Stadium in New York sold out even faster than The Beatles did. One could even say that they were the pioneers of early metal music as well. With over 12 Gold albums to their credit and 11 Platinum albums, there's no denying that they deserve their name in history. Their mega-career produced such hit albums as, "On Time," "Grand Funk Railroad," Closer To Home," "Live Album," "Survival," "E Pluribus Funk," "Mark, Don & Mel," " Phoenix," "We're An American Band," "Shinin' On," and "All The Girls In The World Beware!!!" Their timeless classic songs included, "I'm Your Captain," "Paranoid," "Inside Looking Out," "Footstompin' Music," "Rock N Roll Soul," "We're An American Band," "Walk Like A Man" and many, many other hits.



The    Re-Grouping   

And now, just a little over a decade since Grand Funk's disbandment, Mark Farner, Don Brewer and Mel Schacher are back again. This time with a firm commitment to continue playing together as longs as their fans will have them.
