Breland, Grand Funk Railroad, Lita Ford performing at del Lago

Three acts have been added to del Lago Resort & Casino’s entertainment lineup: Genre-blending singer-songwriter Breland, performing Thur., Nov. 17; rock band Grand Funk Railroad, performing Fri., Dec. 9; and guitarist, singer and songwriter Lita Ford, performing Sat., Dec. 7. All three shows will take place at 8:00 p.m. at del Lago’s Vine Showroom. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 23. More information can be found online.

With the arrival of his instantly iconic debut single “My Truck,” New Jersey-born artist Breland emerged as a bold new force on today’s music landscape. Now certified platinum, the wildly catchy hybrid of Hip-Hop and Country hit #1 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 and earned the admiration of country superstars like Keith Urban, while a high-powered remix featuring hitmaker Sam Hunt landed on best-of-the-year lists from major outlets like NPR and the New York Times. But for the Nashville-based singer/songwriter/producer, the song’s breakout success is only the start of a much larger movement.

True to his passion for transcending boundaries, Breland has set his sights on the tremendous task of building new and long-lasting connections between cultures – all by making music that’s both emotionally honest and undeniably joyful.

Grand Funk Railroad laid the groundwork for such bands as Foreigner, Journey, Van Halen and Bon Jovi with its signature hard driving sound, soulful vocals, muscular instrumentation and forceful pop melodies. Known as “The American Band,” Grand Funk has had 19 charted singles, eight Top 40 hits and two Number One singles (“We’re an American Band” and “Locomotion”), both selling more than one million each. The group has accumulated 13 gold and 10 platinum records, with record sales in excess of 25 million copies sold worldwide.

Mega-hits “We’re an American Band,” “I’m Your Captain/Closer to Home,” “Locomotion,” and “Some Kind of Wonderful” still receive continuous airplay on Classic Rock radio. We’re an American Band has received notoriety in recent years being used in movie soundtracks and in television/radio advertising. The fact that Grand Funk’s legacy still reigns over the Classic Rock landscape fifty years after its 1969 birth in Flint, Michigan is a testament to the group’s influence and staying power.

Lita Ford is a founding member and guitarist of the groundbreaking all female group, the Runaways. The group’s hard rock/punk edge spawned hits like “Cherry Bomb” and “Queens of Noise.” Ford went on to launch her career as a solo artist with her debut album Out for Blood, and would follow up with several albums. Dancin’ on the Edge earned her a Grammy nomination in the Best Female Rock Vocal Performance category, and also produced the world charting single “Fire in My Heart” and the U.S. Billboard top 50 charting hit “Gotta Let Go.” Her self-titled album, Lita, boasted four charting hit singles, including the certified gold ballad single “Close my Eyes Forever,” featuring Ozzy Osbourne, which remained in the Billboard top 10 for 25 weeks.

In addition to her renowned musical career, Lita has also appeared in numerous movie, television and media roles. In 2016, Ford released her autobiography, Living Like a Runaway: A Memoir.
