Grand Funk Railroad – The Guess Who Concert Review – Elizabethtown, KY – Freeman Lake Park – 6/26/2010 (Podcast 175)
PODCAST LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST!
On Saturday, June 26, 2010, Concert Blast hosts Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, and James Downing traveled to Elizabethtown KY as they were invited by two of the best classic rock acts still on the road today, The Guess Who and Grand Funk Railroad, to review their concert at Freeman Lake Park (Tom Thompson was out of town for this show).
This show features Mike getting the crowd hyped up for the show and talking with several fans in attendance.
The Guess Who surprised approximately 5,000 classic rock fans in attendance with their live show and their set list.
The vocals of Derek Sharp were superb and his guitar playing was just as good! The Guess Who had two original members, drummer Garry Peterson and bassist Jim Kale.
Grand Funk Railroad hit the stage with a full force of energy, especially drummer Don Brewer.
GFR (as they are also known as) had two original members as well, with drummer Don Brewer and bassist Mel Schacher.
This band is a very tight and polished band with the vocal ability of Max Carl, guitar licks of Bruce Kulick, keyboard wizardry of Tim Cashion, and of course the rhythm section of Don and Mel.
The town of Elizabethtown, KY promoted this concert for the community with the sponsorship help of many local businesses… WELL DONE!
Mike, Brian, and James had the time of their life with the fans, the bands, and the city officials. The only downfall of the city promoting this show is there is only one concert per year. Next year lets have at least two.
