If you love The Beatles, Jimmy Buffett, the Eagles and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, we think you'll enjoy our band. We are a classic rock band based in the South Puget Sound. We're available for hire to play at private parties, company functions, community events and festivals and more.
Here a short video clip of our band (“Back in the USSR”) at a gig we did last summer on Foss Waterway.
THE POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS: UPCOMING GIGS
SATURDAY, APRIL 30: Our band's first big gig of the year will be at the Urban Elk (Allenmore Golf Course in Tacoma) from 4 to 7 p.m. on April 30. This FREE event is open to all ages. Find out more about this venue.
SATURDAY, MAY 7: We're also looking forward to playing at the Emergency Food Network's Hunger Walk on Saturday, May 7 at Fort Steilacoom Park. We've played at this fun fundraising event for many years. You can find out more about this in-person and virtual event here.
ROD KOON & FRIENDS: UPCOMING GIGS
NOTE: Rod Koon & Friends is a "subgroup" of The Possible Solutions--usually featuring three members of our full band--Rod Koon, Pete Grignon and Bob Connelly. Sometimes, other bandmates join in as well.
Rod Koon & Friends are looking forward to playing at these two great farmers markets in the south Puget Sound area:
FRIDAY, APRIL 15: We'll be playing at the Olympia Farmers Market from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Olympia Farmers Market’s “high season” runs April through October, Thursday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
PROCTOR FARMERS MARKET: We had a great time playing there for "opening day" of their regular season on Saturday, March 26. We hope to play there again later on this summer. The Proctor Farmers’ Market runs every Saturday from March 26 through December 17.
2021: A LOOK BACK
In late August, our band had a great time rocking out on Tacoma's waterfront at the Foss Amphitheater as part of the free Thea Foss Summer Concert Series Festival, put on by The Friends of the Foss.
We opened the show and were followed by the Jim Valley Project. Jim’s a Northwest rock-n-roll legend, having been a member of the Viceroys, Don & the Goodtimes and Paul Revere & the Raiders.
The Amphitheater is a great outdoor venue, and we hope to play there again next summer. It's located on
the Esplanade near the Museum of Glass.
We also played for a private holiday party in December held at the Foss Waterway Seaport--it was a great venue and a fun party to play for. We also donated a portion of our gig money to United Way of Pierce County and the Emergency Food Network.
2020: A LOOK WAY BACK
Although a lot of our gigs in 2020 were cancelled due to COVID-19, many of our band members rallied around to do front yard concerts at Rod's house. The free gigs raised money for the Emergency Food Network (EFN) to help fight hunger in Pierce County. In 2020, we did 13 concerts--and with the help of our generous audiences--we raised about $7,000 for EFN.
And thanks to KOMO TV’s Eric Johnson, we even got some valuable additional coverage on TV and social media. https://youtu.be/It86sbauOHQ
