The Fong family of Elk Grove has found a novel way to cover the rising cost of college: playing nearly 100 concerts a year as the College Fund Street Band. On July 24, 2015, the five Fong children, ranging in ages from 8 to 20, rocked out to songs such as “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” in the Crocker Art Museum’s courtyard, occasionally backed by their dad, Ted Fong, on bass.
