Grand Funk Railroad Tickets - The Shining Light of Rock From FlintThey were the essence of music without the over-performance and lights and glamour. They were true garage rock with a tint of blues infused in. They were the indomitable and unbreakable Grand Funk Railroad from Flint, Michigan, hailed in 1968 by guitarist and songwriter Mark Farner, drummer Don Brewer, and bass guitarist Mel Schacher.
Grand Funk Railroad Tickets - A Little Bit of HistoryThat really should be the signature of the Railroad -- History. As they have a lot of it. The name 'Grand Funk Railroad' was derived by Michigan's well-known Grand Trunk Railroad as a commemoration of their state. Capitol Records got wind of them and instantly signed themback in 1969 after they performed for free at the Atlanta Pop Festival. They recorded numerous albums, one of them entitled Closer to Home, which was their first multi-platinum album. They are well known for many hits, such as 'We're an American Band'.
Grand Funk Railroad Tickets - All Aboard the Funk!Despite the reluctant radio airplay -- at first -- the Railroad of funk kept chugging along with their trio sound of bluesy-rock and ultra-strong working-class appeal. As in they didn't wear flashy clothes, nor did they rely on technology -- just straight instrumentation, a lot of soul, and a lot of raging rock sounds to boot. In all honesty, they could really be the world's first grunge-style band.
