Member of the Oregon Music Hall of Fame from Johnny & The Distractions
Jon Koonce is headed to Hollywood? The founder and former front man of Johnny and the Distractions will be taking his trio on the road, or rather up the road to the Portland Hollywood District. Oregon Music Hall of Fame Member Jon Koonce serves up meat ‘n’ potatoes rock ‘n’ roll. His gruff and warm voice, paired with workmanlike guitar and blue-collar lyrics have been hailed for several decades.
According to Rolling Stone Magazine, Jon’s songs are: “…built of the same chunky rhythm and vigor that characterizes songs by Bruce Springsteen or Graham Parker, with R&B roots and gritty subjects rough roads, bad apartments, faithless women.”
Come enjoy an intimate evening of working class music mixed with high quality atmosphere. In a time of overlapping musical genres, Koonce and his current trio are out to revive the roots of true rock ‘n’ roll. Jon Koonce is a working man’s troubadour.
