They’re coming to your town, they’re gonna party down. The group that claims the American Band title, Grand Funk Railroad, will be performing a free concert in Rochester, MN. It’s part of the Down by the Riverside free concert series in Mayo Park happening all summer.

The band, well-known for it’s classic rock radio staples like; We’re an American Band, The Loco-Motion, Some Kind of WonderfulBad Time and I’m Your Captain/Closer To Home, will take the stage at 7 p.m. on Saturday August 24th.

I had the luck to see them at Moondance Jam three years ago and they not only whipped the crowd into a frenzy, they were one of the tightest and best sounding bands I’ve seen live.

Formed in 1969, Grand Funk was born out of the ashes of Terry Knight & The Pack, another band from Flint, Michigan and Question Mark and the Mysterians (remember 96 Tears?) Currently, the group includes original founding members Don Brewer (vocals, drums, writer and lead singer on We’re An American Band) and bassist Mel Schacher. Joining Don and Mel are three well-seasoned musicians with names you’re familiar with; Max Carl (formerly of .38 Special), lead guitarist Bruce Kulick (12 years with KISS), and keyboardist Tim Cashion (Bob Seger and Robert Palmer).
