MARK FARNER FORMER GRAND FUNK RAILROAD LIVE ON GUAM

ON MAY 12 & 13 AT SHERATON LAGUNA GUAM RESORT

Barrigada, Guam (April 30, 2017) - Tropical Productions Inc. is proud to announce two special performances featuring legendary front man and guitarist of the former Grand Funk Railroad Mark Farner, May 12 and 13, 2017 at the Sheraton Laguna Guam Resort.

The singer, songwriter, and guitarist is multi-platinum recording artist who was the engine that pulled the original Grand Funk Railroad to the top of the charts, creating music that defined a generation.

With Farner in the lead, Grand Funk Railroad hit the fast track to fame after performing at the 1969 Atlantic Pop Festival. In 1973, their anthem "We're an American Band" topped the Billboard charts with "The Loco-Motion" trailing it to the top the following year. The trio from Michigan continued its hit-making path with “I’m Your Captain,” “Some Kind of Wonderful” and “Bad Time" before disbanding in 1976.

Farner continued his music career, collaborating with other artists and as a successful solo artist, to bring a message of love to his fans around the world. Through the decades, he's also performed during a few Grand Funk Railroad reunions.

“I think our fans connected to our songs because we were sincere,” Farner said. “Our lyrics were about Mother Earth, stop the war, and all about love. They still have a point of reference with me in their heart.”

Farner, the son of a World War II veteran and four-time bronze star recipient, recognizes the importance of brotherhood and commitment made by those who make sacrifices in the armed services. To continue to honor service personnel and veterans, he offers support to American farmers, individuals with disabilities and downtrodden populations.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Pacific War Museum Guam.
