Announcing the return of the annual Rock from the Heart benefit concert featuring Grand Funk Railroad.

The annual Rock from the Heart concert returns to the Pantages Theatre in Minneapolis! This year's show featuring Grand Funk Railroad will raise money and awareness for aortic health while spending the night rocking with “The American Band.”


Grand Funk Railroad Known is a high-energy five-piece group including original founding members Don Brewer on vocals and drums, writer and singer of the multi-million selling hit, We're An American Bandand and bassist Mel Schacher. Singer Max Carl is a rock veteran from 38 Special. Max penned and sang 38's biggest hit "Second Chance" and was co-founder of California's legendary Jack Mack and the Heart Attack.
Lead guitarist Bruce Kulick is best known for his 12 years with KISS and has credits with Michael Bolton, Meatloaf and Billy Squier. Keyboardist Tim Cashion's credits include stints with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band and Robert Palmer.


Pete and Amy Johnson formed Rock from the Heart after Pete was diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm and aortic valve disease, and they struggled to find consistent information on the disease. “We love rock music and music brings people together, so we decided a great way to raise awareness would be to hold a benefit concert,” Pete and Amy said. Our first two events in Minneapolis were well received, and it was tough having to cancel the 2020 event. We are thrilled to be returning to the Pantages Theatre in 2022!”

Rock from the Heart’s mission is to support families from diagnosis to recovery, connecting them with resources and information that is often hard to find. Through concerts and education events, Rock from the Heart uses music to inspire and provide hope to people affected by aortic disease.

"Knowledge is power when it comes to your health, and aortic conditions are not exception. We want to share the details of our journey so people aren't left searching for answers." --Pete and Amy Johnson, Rock from the Heart founders
