Their Facebook page says that they formed at the funeral of their former lead singer, back in their days as an 80's cover band. But when asked about that story's validity, Mike McGowan, guitarist and percussionist for The Greatest Funeral Ever laughs and says, "Not one bit of it is true."

Really, the guys of Harrisburg-based The Greatest Funeral Ever got together simply because they all love music. They've been jamming now since 2007 and have recorded two CDs, all the while playing venues around the Central PA area. This episode of Center Stage features a performance of theirs from the Stage on Herr in Harrisburg.
