From Clinton, IA, Ron has performed with local and national groups over the past 40 years. Although playing many genres of music during that time, his passion remains centered around jazz. Ron's style has been influenced by guitar greats such as Larry Carlton, Robben Ford, Kenny Burrell, Joe Pass, and Wes Montgomery. Ron most commonly performs in a jazz quartet or trio setting, but has also performed in larger combos, big band settings, and as a solo performer on many occasions.
