Grand Funk Delivers Nostalgia With Plenty Of Kick

"God bless America!" Don Brewer bellowed, from under an oversize and sweetly goofy Uncle Sam hat. "We're an American band!" This moment didn't come until the very end of Grand Funk Railroad's powerfully funky set Monday night at the South Florida Fair, but it pretty much summed it all up: salt-of-the-earth rock 'n' roll, with a theatrical flair and a healthy dash of nostalgia and enough in-your-face oomph to bring it home.

Original members Brewer, the singing drummer, and bassist Mel Schacher, along with newer singer Max Carl, keyboard player Tim Cashion and guitarist Bruce Kulick, certainly came into the town and helped it to party down long before their signature song. Beginning with the bluesy Bottle Rocket, the band did much to separate itself from the ranks of the strictly nostalgia band by refusing to phone it in.

Guitars wailed like shrieking banshees. High, soulful notes were hit, often courtesy of former .38 Special singer Carl, and Jupiter's own Brewer righteously beat the drums like they'd stolen something. "That's the best rock 'n' roll drummer in the world!" Carl proclaimed as Brewer took his bows at the end of a five-minute drum solo, during which his fluffy mane of gray hair shook emphatically. Oh, to have seen him during the 1970s with his righteous rock 'fro. While the hair was not as high as in Grand Funk's heyday, the funk at least was still flaming.

The band shone through sing-along favorites such as The Locomotion and Some Kind of Wonderful, during which Brewer name-checked wife Sunny Quinn; impressed on Walk Like a Man; and did a stripped-down version of .38 Special's Second Chance, which was arguably better than the original. The emotional highlight, however, was the stirring I'm Your Captain/Closer to Home, a hushed hymn to the yearning for the safety of home. The crowd, which had been clapping along, was suddenly reverent, singing together the refrain "I'm getting closer to my home" against the eerie clarity of Cashion's keyboard. Sometimes, you don't have to necessarily be partying down to bring the house down.
