Grand Funk Railroad’s Mark Farner Coming to Hudson Valley
Former Grand Funk Railroad singer and guitarist Mark Farner will play Sugar Loaf, NY in April.
Grand Funk Railroad achieved peak popularity during the 1970s. They were well-regarded by audiences for their crowd-pleasing arena rock style. They toured extensively and played to packed arenas worldwide. The band is notable for the acclaim of being at one time "bigger than the Beatles", with having the distinction of playing one of its biggest shows ever at New York's Shea Stadium in the summer of 1971. Grand Funk sold out two shows in a mere 72 hours, breaking the Beatles record at the venue and still holding the record today. With songs like "We're an American Band" and "I'm Your Captain (Closer to Home)", Grand Funk Railroad were megastars throughout the '70s.
Mark Farner sold over 30 million records worldwide with Grand Funk Railroad, including 16 gold and platinum albums. He's touring now with his American Band, honoring a career of over 50 years.
