Mark Farner's N'rG [Energy]


» See more local bands


The members: Mark Farner [Formerly of Grand Funk]Lead Guitar and Vocals Lawrence Buckner [bass-vocals] Hubert [H-Bomb] Crawford [drums] Karl Propst [keys-vocals]

The history: Mark Farner is the guy you remember from Grand Funk Railroad. Long haired, shirtless, dancing, prancing and romancing' the stage as sweat poured onto the first two rows of people in the arena...and they loved it. Eleven gold albums, ruled the 70's...you get the picture. As for the last decade and then some...Mark has put that in his back pocket and picked some extraordinary musicians that have the right vibe for the good ol' Funk tunes that he plays just like they did it on the records and that is, like a power-house (amps on 11) 3 piece band! The way nature grew it! Touring this [2011] year...still digging the gigging...Mark Farner with Great N'rG...still masters the vocals and presents the chops and over-drive to Loco-Moto-vate you into the Time Machine! Tell Everybody you know...especially your local venue. Tell them you want Mark...only YOU can prevent a Summer of classic rock and roll drought!

What's up with the name: People exclaim that the band has: "such energy" that they decided to call it just that: N'R G!

The style: Classic Rock n Roll

Got anything recorded? The 2006 CD: "For The People" [available from Mark's site]

Tell us your future? The future is so bright ya may need sun screen that isn't invented yet!

Next Show: Thanks for asking when the next show is: April 8, 2011 South Bend, Indiana Morris Theater

Comments: During the Loco-Motion, don't forget to make a chain and a Chugga-Chugga motion if you get the chance...You know you've got the knack!
