Band Bio

In the spring of 2000 Mike Needer was asked by Pat Owens to go into the studio and lay down some tracks for an upcoming CD. Within an hour or so Mike was asked to join The SHANE OWENS Band. After a few gigs it was obvious that Mike and Pat's three band mates were unable to gig as much as they had hoped so the 2-piece acoustic group Two Fifths was born. After about a year Mike and Pat recruited a lead guitarist, thus changing the band name.
With a song list well over 200 strong The SOLUTION can now be seen in and around the Baltimore area playing dock bars, sports bars, weddings, etc. Their shows are more than what you would expect from a typical acoustic show. They get the crowd involved and sometimes even join them on stage! Log onto and check out the Pictures Page to see what The SOLUTION is all about.
