Details of Grand Funk Railroad and the Ticket Luck value
The Grand Funk Railroad, which is also known as Grand Funk, is a rock band from the United States of America. During the 1970s, this rock band was at the height of its fame. It is known for touring extensively to arenas all over the world that are jam packed with rock music enthusiasts. One of the most amazing facts about this band that critics have never liked them much whereas, the audiences adored them. The name of the band originated as a play on word of the famous Grand Trunk Railroad which was a real railroad that went through the band’s home town that being Flint in Michigan.
The main musical genres of the Grand Funk Railroad are blues rock as well as hard rock. The band was formed in 1969 and was active until 1976. Then it reunited in 1981 and was together till 1983. Due to their immense esteem they came back in 1996 and have been actively a part of the music industry till the present day. The music recording labels that it has been associated with are the Capitol Records, Full Moon Records and MCA records. The current lineup of the band comprises of Timothy “Time” Cashion, Don Drewer, Max Carl, Mel Schacher and Bruce Kulick. Past members of the band were Howdy Eddy, Jr., Mark Farner, Dennis Bellinger and Craig Frost.
The Grand Funk Railroad was created in 1969. When the released its debut album which was titled as On Time, it became and international success. The debut album of the band successfully sold more than one million copies and was ultimately given a certification in 1970 of being a gold record. In 1970, the same year when they released their first album, it was quick enough to release its second album known as Grand Funk (aka “The Red Album”). This second album of the band was also given a status of gold. It then released a super hit single called “I’m Your Captain (Closer to Home). This single was from the album titled as Closer to Home and came out in 1970. This single was widely rendered to be stylistically a representative work of the Terry Knight and Pack’s music recording.
In 1970, the Grand Funk Railroad spent about $100,000 on a billboard to be placed on New York Times Square. This was done in order to advertise the band’s album, Closer to Home. The live performances of the band are a true delight. It successfully broke the record of The Beatles’ Shea Stadium attendance record in 1971 as they ended up in selling out to the audience in less than 72 hours.
Even though, Grand Funk Railroad met with a lot of critical bashings and scarce airplay, the band’s first six albums out of which five were studio recorded and one live album were extremely successful. Terry Knight and Pack’s music recording company started off with a powerful advertising campaign for their album, Closer To Home. This advertising campaign worked well in the favor of the band. soon enough, the album was given a certification of multi-platinum by the RIAA although there was less critical approval, yet the audience appeal was greater.
In 1996, the Grand Funk Railroad re-united with its three original members and gave a sterling performance to an audience of nearly 250,000 in nearly fourteen live music concerts in a span of three months. This went on to proving that the massive appeal of the band among its avid fans was still there. If that was not enough, the band played at some Bosnian benefit concerts in 1997 which were a total sellout.
