“We’re Comin’ To Your Town, We’ll Help You Party It Down”- 5 Songs You Will Hear When Grand Funk Railroad Comes to Kalamazoo
Grand Funk Railroad headlines Kalamazoo Ribfest on Friday, August 4; these are 5 of the songs you’ll be rockin’ to as you’re eating ribs.
Very few bands can boast about breaking a record held by The Beatles. Grand Funk Railroad did it in 1971 when they sold out Shea Stadium in 72 hours. A capacity crowd is expected at Kalamazoo Ribfest when they rock Arcadia Creek Festival Place on August 4. Bet a rack of ribs on hearing these 5 songs in the set.
This song also hit the charts in 1962 and 1988, but Grand Funk’s rockin’ 1974 version is the best.
Max Carl wrote and sang this #1 song while he was in .38 Special.
