The venue listing in incorrect. There was no "Renfro Valley Barn Dance." This show took place at the New Barn Theatre at the Renfro Valley Entertainment Center. That said, it was a great show. I couldn't believe that this iconic act was playing at this small venue within 45 minutes of me. How could I not attend? Yes, Mark Farner left in 1998, but the other two original members (Don Brewer on drums/percussion and vocals, Mel Schacher on bass) still perform as Grand Funk Railroad. The current lead singer (Max Carl) did stint with .38 Special in the '80s (he sang lead and co-wrote "Second Chance,' which Grand Funk Railroad performs in concert) and the lead guitarist for this show was Bruce Kulick, who played lead guitar with KISS from 1984-1996 (he has since departed Grand Funk after a 23-year tenure). You heard all of the hits and a few deep cuts. As a casual fan, I was satisfied; a hardcore fan might have been disappointed in some of the choices for the set.

I'd rate it 3 1/2 stars overall. I love GFR, as I grew up in Detroit. They do miss Mark, though, the new singer had a tough job to do to match him. And of course they're getting up in age. Seeing them brought back a lot of great memories, and I wish them all well!

With this show I was able to cross (2) bands off my "Bucket List" ..... Grand Funk Railroad and Jefferson Starship. BOTH bands sounded great and had lots of energy. They kept the crowd engaged during their performances.

About Grand Funk Railroad

Originating from Flint, Michigan in 1969, this top selling American rock group of the 70's is "COMIN' TO YOUR TOWN TO HELP YOU PARTY IT DOWN." Grand Funk Railroad is extremely excited to be touring in 2019 marking a 50 year milestone. After playing to millions of fans on the band's tours Grand Funk continues 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 has credits with Michael Bolton, Meatloaf and Billy Squier. (KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were influenced early on by Grand Funk.) Keyboardist Tim Cashion has a master's degree in music from the University of Miami. Affectionately called "Dr. Tim," his credits include stints with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band and English soul man Robert Palmer.

Grand Funk laid the groundwork for such bands as Foreigner, Journey, Van Halen and Bon Jovi with its signature hard driving sound, soulful vocals, muscular instrumentation and forceful pop melodies. The fact that Grand Funk's legacy still reigns over the Classic Rock landscape fifty years after its 1969 birth in Flint, Michigan is a testament to the group's influence and staying power. Mega-hits We're An American Band, I'm Your Captain/Closer To Home, Locomotion, and Some Kind Of Wonderful still receive continuous airplay on Classic Rock radio. We're An American Band has received notoriety in recent years being used in movie sound tracks and in television/radio advertising. The huge hit was featured in a General Motors national TV ad campaign and in Disney's animated feature film The Country Bears. We're An American Band was featured in the Cuba Gooding Jr. film RADIO, and in the swashbuckler SAHARA starring Matthew McConaughey.

Internationally acclaimed Grand Funk has toured the world, selling out in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan and South America. A 1971 performance at New York's Shea Stadium sold out faster than the Beatles. The group's widespread appeal is also evident in its prestigious recording achievements. Over their career, Grand Funk has had 19 charted singles, 8 Top 40 hits and two Number One singles (We're An American Band and Locomotion, both selling more than one million each). The group has now accumulated 15 gold and 10 platinum records with record sales exceeding 25 million copies sold worldwide. The most recent gold CD award was presented to the band for their greatest hits package Grand Funk Railroad the Collectors Series.

The multi-talented band carries on the tradition of Grand Funk hits and creates a new chapter in the legacy of Grand Funk Railroad. GFR drew 25,000 people to their Molson Canal Series Concert outside Buffalo, 20,000 in Albany, New York, and 20,000 fans to downtown Orlando, Florida. EMI/Capitol (Universal Music) released a new Grand Funk Greatest Hits package that includes a bonus DVD of rare concert footage.
