Grand Funk Railroad has a long reputation in the rock and roll soul genre, making their music highly sought-after. At the Rockit Academy serving Lincroft, Brookdale, Middletown, and Red Bank, New Jersey, we train our students in Grand Funk Railroad rock & roll soul. Students will learn a Grand cover written by Mark Farner, a founding member of Grand Funk Railroad, making it an experience they won’t soon forget. This video made possible by Monmouth Arts and the O’Malley family.
