Let me start out and say "Holy Cow"!!! These guys are great!
People let me tell you, there is a hell of a lot of talent standing up on that stage
I love the old Grand Funk and now I love the New Grand Funk!!!

Finally, the 2001 theme starts and the full house is pumped. A local said the venue held 5,000 and I heard they were turning people away at the gate.
As always the band started with so much energy, the crowd had no choice but to feel it and give it back.
I got a kick out of the "Drum Thing" It just makes you move and to watch the 5 of them having so much fun abusing those instruments is worth the price of admission alone.
Bruce was smokin' Friday night! His Star Spangled Banner was great. I think someone cut him loose on Inside Lookin' Out. He really nailed it! If I had any musical talent and wanted to play lead guitar, I know who I'd want to study. Bruuuuuuuce!
Don's drumming was spectacular. I think he'd stored up some energy and let it all out. I've seen his solo several times now this year and I believe his sticks were moving faster than I'd ever seen.
Mel did what he could to blow up the second amp. He's one he!! of a bass player.
Tim's keys were high in the mix (thanks Tim!). He sounded great and adds so much fullness to all their music. I never noticed how much orchestration goes into their new song Sky High. It sounded excellent and of course Tim's intro to I'm Your Captain was a work of art.
Max Carl just blows me away! He is so much fun on stage. He was all over the place. He was an excellent showman and his vocals were right on.
if you're not feeling too good, go see Grand Funk Railroad. They cure what ails ya!
