Ron has been a major asset to the singer-songwriter community for 11 years, video-taping performers at their gigs and editing the videos for them, all for free. Never charging a dime. He has insurance for the van (it was 18 years old with 250,000 miles), but it is for current value only and not replacement value.

A core group of some of Ron's closest friends has come together to make this event happen. This group includes: Jaynee Thorne, John & Julie Zipperer, Roz Larman, Jeff Gold & Holly Goldsmith, Paul Zollo, and Russ & Julie Paris.

Ron has always been there for the music community, for the love of the music and the people who make it. We hope you can join us at The Talking Stick, Sunday May 5, 2013, so we can be there for him.

Please join us in leading a hand to this very kind and generous man.
