Rock still draws a crowd
August 23, 2010 - Jim Smith
Who says old-time rock and roll won't draw a crowd as the featured entertainment at the Parkersburg Homecoming festival?
Grand Funk Railroad was the Sunday night act that played -- from my perspective -- before just as large a crowd as most of the country music performers, with the exception of the Dixie Chicks, that have performed at Homecoming.
While the music was vintage, there were Baby Boomers and teenagers in the audience, rocking to the tunes and the drummer's beat.
While the group, which bills itself as "America's Band," hit its height of popularity in the 1970s, it continues to play its music to appreciative crowds around the country ... and Parkersburg was one of those sites.
Yep, rock and roll can still draw a crowd.
