Mark Farner, founding guitarist, song writer and singer with the 70’s rock band Grand Funk Railroad, blew into Beverly with his own band for a one nighter at The Cabot.  While Farner may look a little different than he did back in the day, don’t let it deceive you.  This guy doesn’t miss a beat and his performance was just as energetic and captivating as any present day rocker half his age.  At 68 years old nothing much has changed—his vocals were crisp and spot on, his guitar playing was over the top and he just didn’t stop.  The eager crowd was treated to a host of Grand Funk’s hits and Farner really rocked the roof off.  Word to the wise tho—this show is LOUD, so be prepared.  He’ll be around New England this summer both with Grand Funk Railroad and his own band so catch it if you can.  Awesome show and kudos to The Cabot for continuing to bring A+ music to the Northshore!
