OME Events presents Mark Farner’s American Band at Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center on Saturday, April 23rd. Farner’s hit “I’m Your Captain (Closer to Home)” became a rock anthem during the Vietnam war era. Now, 50 years later and in his 70’s, Farner commands the stage with the same intensity and outpouring of love as he did during the summer of ’69 and his fans are still flocking to see “The Captain.” A husband, a father, and grandfather, and in his fourth decade of marriage to wife Lesia, Mark is a true family man. His love for the American military, as well as his humble beginnings and blue-collar roots, are nearly paramount to his musical legacy.
From his soulful voice and power rock riffs, to fueling the Funk with his atomic stage presence, you’ll know Farner from his other hits: “Bad Time”, “Some Kind of Wonderful”, “Foot Stompin’ Music”, “Heartbreaker”, “Locomotion”, “Mean Mistreater” and “We’re an American Band”.
Today, Farner’s remarkable career rocks on at full volume, selling more than 30 million records worldwide, including 16 gold and platinum albums as well as touring with his American Band, honoring a career of over 50 years.
