Two years ago, local legends of hometown garage band rock 'n' roll came together for an incredible fundraising reunion.  It was such an amazing experience, with more than 800 audience members reminiscing as familiar faces sang yesterday's biggest hits, the group would reunite again a year later and do it all again. This year they're doing it again, but there's a funkin' twist.

Durand's Veterans of Rock 'n' Roll will once again come together to raise money for some incredible local causes, but they'll have some big help.  Mark Farner, formerly of Grand Funk Railroad, will headline this year's concert.

We're gonna need a bigger venue.

The 2019 Durand Veterans of Rock 'n' Roll concert will be held Saturday August 17th at Roundhouse Stadium, Durand High School's high school football field.

With anticipated heightened interest from beyond the city limits, it's important to get your tickets fast.  You can do it now at the brand new website veteransofrock.org.

Tickets this year are $40 for General Admission and $70 for Premium Admission. Premium tickets come with tent seating, a dedicated cash bar, and wait staff. Premium ticket holders also get to attend a Meet and Greet with Mark Farner! Premium tickets are extremely limited.  Both ticket levels will afford the ticket holder the opportunity to mingle and reminisce with old friends.

Online tickets come with a small transaction fee so the full ticket proceeds go toward the Veterans' Fund and the depot.  If you'd rather buy tickets in person, get them at Durand Union Station, the Durand VFW Social Club, Ed's Standard, Jim's Pizza, Changes Salon and Teasers' Salon.  In Lennon, tickets are available at Bowden's Body Shop.  Cash or check only, except at Durand Union Station, where credit card orders can be placed.
