In the early 1980s Ron moved to Maui and began performing professionally, finding audiences who resonated with his soulful vocals and beautifully penned Hawaiian songs.
Ron will be joined by Keoki Ruiz, a veteran of Maui's music scene, Keoki Ruiz has opened for international recording artists Earl Klugh and the Rippingtons. His group has performed at the Maui Music Festival in 1995 and 1996. Keoki has been known to add Latin elements to his slack key pieces.
