Cocoa Party in the Park May 7th


Cocoa Rotary teamed up with Deuterman Productions to bring another Party In The Park to Cocoa Village's Riverfront Park. Featured band will be Grand Funk Railroad with opening acts; Confederate Railroad and Hot Pink. A Portion of the proceeds will benefit the local Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida and Cocoa Rotary.

Known as “The American Band," the high-energy five-piece group will play forty shows all over the USA this year. Grand Funk Railroad includes original founding members Don Brewer (vocals and drums, writer and singer of the multi-million selling hit, We’re An American Band) and bassist Mel Schacher, “The God Of Thunder." Joining Don and Mel are true “All Stars." Singer Max Carl is a rock veteran from 38 Special. Max penned and sang 38’s biggest hit “Second Chance” and was co-founder of California’s legendary Jack Mack and the Heart Attack. Don refers to Max as “the best blue-eyed soul singer on the planet." Lead guitarist Bruce Kulick is best known for his 12 years with KISS and also has credits with Michael Bolton, Meatloaf and Billy Squier. (KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were influenced early on by Grand Funk.) Keyboardist Tim Cashion has a master’s degree in music from the University of Miami. Affectionately called “Dr. Tim," his credits include stints with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band and English soul man Robert Palmer.
