Grand Funk Railroad returns to Tropicana Atlantic City

31 October 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Grand Funk Railroad is coming back to Tropicana Atlantic City Casino & Resort to help you party it down. Known as "The American Band," this high-energy five-piece group will play live in the Tropicana Showroom on Saturday, 4 March, 2017. Show time is 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Grand Funk Railroad features founding members Don Brewer and Mel Schacher, joined by veterans Max Carl of 38 Special, Bruce Kulick of KISS and keyboardist Tim Cashion who played with Robert Palmer as well as Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.

The fact that Grand Funk's legacy still reigns over the Classic Rock landscape 48 years after its 1969 birth in Flint, Michigan is a testament to the group's influence and staying power. Mega-hits "We're An American Band," "I'm Your Captain/Closer to Home," "Locomotion," and "Some Kind Of Wonderful" still receive continuous airplay on Classic Rock radio.

The group's widespread appeal is also evident in its prestigious recording achievements. Over their career, Grand Funk has had 19 charted singles, eight Top 40 hits and two #1 singles. The group has now accumulated 13 gold and 10 platinum records with record sales in excess of 25 million copies sold worldwide.

Tickets to see Grand Funk Railroad at Tropicana are $35, $45, $55 and $75. Tickets are available beginning Friday, 4 November, 2016 through Ticketmaster or via phone at 1.800.736.1420, or at the Tropicana Box Office. Tickets are subject to tax and fees.
