Don, Mel & Co. LLC at Riverfront Park
After seven years I finally saw Don Brewer and Mel Schacher's version of Grand Funk Railroad. First of all, great band but.............they sorely miss Mark Farner. This band had no charisma, no energy. Don Brewer, excellent. Mel Schacher, excellent. But guys....move around a little. Bruce Kulick, an excellent musician, but he lacks (there's that word again) charisma. Max Carl should stick to singing 38 Special songs, because he can't even approach the voice that made so many Grand Funk songs, Grand Funk. He, along with the rest of the band did show, in my opinion, great respect, when they performed, Grand Funk's greatest song, "I'm Your Captain". They played it as it should have been played, but again, they miss the vocals, the guitar, and the on stage presence of Mark Farner. Mark, Don and Mel, are the true and ONLY Grand Funk Railroad.
