Posted in Whalan Arts & Culture

The Solid Gold Band will be providing the musical entertainment for the Stand Still Parade activities on Saturday, May 18, 2013. Since this year’s theme is “Back to The 50’s and 60’s” the band will be providing music that should bring back good memories for the more mature audience and begin some new memories for the younger generation.

The Solid Gold Band is a professional Twin Cities band playing danceable classic rock/variety music for any occasion. They do the “Soul of Rock and Roll” show, presenting a well- rounded performance in both sound and appearance.

The band members consist of Paul Musikov on bass and keys, Wayne Liebhard on guitar, Terry Mckinley on drums, and Ron Johnson on keys and sax. The band has preformed for events such as Minnesota Street Rod Association Annual Party, World of Wheels in Mason City, IA. And many other civic and community events across Minnesota.

T he activities begin at 10:00 am with the parade lining up from 11:00am to Noon. The band will begin performing at 12:00 Noon. So break out the Bobby Sox and the Brylcreem and join us in Whalan. “The Little Town that Could.”
