We’re an American Band      The Loco-Motion

Some Kind of Wonderful       I’m Your Captain/Closer to Home

In the early ’70s, Grand Funk Railroad barreled onto the rock scene like a runaway train, selling out stadiums and collecting hit records along the way. In just seven years, they became the first American band to score 10 consecutive platinum albums. Always full of energy and often shirtless, they had a muscular sound that featured powerful vocals, bone-rattling bass lines, in-your-face guitar riffs and thunderous drumming. It was loud, heavy and full of soul. After nearly 5 decades, these guys still put on an epic show – but this time, with their shirts on.

Hang on Sloopy                     Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo

Still Alive and Well                 Teenage Love Affair

Special guest Rick Derringer and his band kick off the show, performing his hits with the McCoys, Johnny and Edgar Winter, as well as his own band. This amazing rock legend has played guitar on a gazillion albums – from Alice Cooper to Air Supply – and produced “Weird Al” Yankovic’s Grammy® award winning hits “Eat It” and “Fat”.
