Mark Farner IS the engine that took the original Grand Funk Railroad, one of rock music's most successful groups, to the top of the charts.

As their lead vocalist, lead guitarist and principle songwriter the group made a beeline to rock stardom following their show-stealing performance before 180,000 people at the Atlanta International Pop Festival in 1969.

Capitol Records was soon on board releasing The Band's appropriately titled first album, On Time, which included such timeless Mark Farner compositions as "Time Machine", "High On A Horse", "Heartbreaker",

"Into The Sun and Can't Be Too Long". Within weeks it was certified

RIAA Gold.

The critically acclaimed 2006 album For The People – Mark Farner The

Rock Patriot, is no cliché. It's powerful pop, political – pure Mark Farner Funk, rivaling his best recordings. It convincingly demonstrates that Mark has lost none of his vocal vibrato or virtuosity as a guitarist or songwriter. Forty years after Mark Farner was star struck with overwhelming success, with 30 million records sold


(12 RIAA Certified Platinum and 15 Certified Gold Albums), Mark Farner's train keeps a rollin'.
