Max Carl @ Barnato

May 14 @ 8:00 pm


Originally from Humphrey, Nebraska and a graduate of Norfolk High School, Max Carl Gronenthal is a rock singer, keyboardist, guitarist and songwriter. He is the co-lead singer of the classic rock band Grand Funk Railroad. In addition, he spent several years as the keyboardist and lead singer for the southern rock band 38 Special. Throughout 1968–69, Carl played a significant role as a member of the Norfolk-based New Breed Blues Band. In 1969, he left the band to join the Lincoln-based Chancellors. During the 1970s, Carl served stints with numerous bands across the Midwest, including The Fabulous Flippers out of Lawrence, Kansas. He frequently performed with fellow Midwesterner Tommy Bolin in various jazz/rock fusion groups. By the late-1970s, Carl had graduated to performing on albums by “bigger names,” such as Rod Stewart and Dusty Springfield. In 1982, he also formed what started as a 1960s R&B cover band, eventually named Jack Mack and the Heart Attack. Featuring a four-piece horn section, the band played classic R&B, Soul, and incorporated some Max Carl-penned original R&B-styled songs into their repertoire, including the classic “Cardiac Party.”
