About Grand Funk Railroad
Originating from Flint, Michigan in 1969, this top selling American rock group of the 70s is "COMIN' TO YOUR TOWN TO HELP YOU PARTY IT DOWN". Grand Funk Railroad is extremely excited to be touring in 2015 marking a 45 year milestone. After playing to millions of fans on tours from 1996 to 2014, the band's "45 YEARS OF GRAND FUNK" Tour will continue to reach both new and long-time fans.
Known as "The American Band", the high-energy five-piece group will play forty shows all over the USA this year. Grand Funk Railroad includes original founding members Don Brewer (vocals and drums, writer and singer of the multi-million selling hit, We're An American Band) and bassist Mel Schacher, "The God Of Thunder". Joining Don and Mel are true "All Stars". Singer Max Carl is a rock veteran from 38 Special. Max penned and sang 38's biggest hit "Second Chance" and was co-founder of California's legendary Jack Mack and the Heart Attack. Don refers to Max as "the best blue-eyed soul singer on the planet". Lead guitarist Bruce Kulick is best known for his 12 years with KISS and also has credits with Michael Bolton, Meatloaf and Billy Squier.
