Popular ’70’s band Grand Funk Railroad is touring this summer with mostly weekend appearances, the group announced this week.

Original members drummer/vocalist Don Brewer and bassist Mel Schacher are being joined by singer Max Carl, formerly with .38 Special, guitarist Bruce Kulick, who played with Kiss for 12 years, and keyboardist Tim Cashion, who played with Bob Seger’s Silver Bullett Band and British crooner Robert Palmer.

Known as “The American Band” after their multi-million selling single, “We’re an American Band,” Grand Funk Railroad was a top-selling band during the ’70’s. Formed in 1969 in Flint, MI, they have recorded numerous hit singles, including “I’m Your Captain/Closer To Home,” “Locomotion,” and “Some Kind Of Wonderful.”

Internationally acclaimed, Grand Funk Railroad has toured the world, selling out in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan and South America. A 1971 performance at New York’s Shea Stadium reportedly sold out faster than the Beatles.
