If one were to look up Grand Funk Railroad on Wikipedia, they would read how the "American rock band," made a name for themselves by "touring extensively" in the 1970's. Although it's been nearly 50 years since the group's formation, and founding front man Mark Farner is no longer in the band, 2016 is shaping up to be Grand Funk's busiest year for touring in over 15 years. While the whole concept of the "record then tour" cycle has been thrown out the window for many years now, GFR would usually resign themselves to summer fly-in dates, however, this year, the band have been doing dates since January, and are booked all the way up through October of 2016.
Western New York has been a regular stop for 'Railroad' for many years, and this year is no different, as the band will be playing just across the way, when they perform at the illustrious Fallsview Casino, in Niagara Falls, ON on April 30th.
Prior to the gig, original drummer/founder, Don Brewer, provided Rock Music Star with an exclusive "one on one," discussing all things in the happening at the station of the Grand Funk Railroad.
