Events

Ron has been playing keyboards since he was 5 years old, at first studying classical music. He switched to popular music in his teens and formed his first rock band when he was 14, performing at teen dances in and around his hometown, Niles, Michigan. He also started writing songs for the band a few years later.

In 1967, the band recorded his song “This Is the Time,” and it was picked up by major radio stations. The song became a #1 hit in May 1967. His band, The Sixth Generation, began being booked at major venues across the Upper Midwest, and also opened for major well-known bands of the time, such as The Buckinghams, Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels, The Boxtops, and others.

During college, traveling to venues became a problem and the band stopped playing in 1970.

After college, Ron started a career in the information technology industry that bought him to Virginia in 1984 and culminated with many years as a very successful senior executive and CEO of international companies. During these years, Ron did not do musical performances, but he did continue playing music privately.

After retiring from the business world, Ron again started performing at music venues in 2011, first with the reformed Sixth Generation for a few years, and since then as a Singer/Songwriter. He plays regularly at selected venues, and audiences are always extremely appreciative of his music. Ron is grateful that his music brings joy to the people in his audience. His aim is to touch the lives of people who listen to his music in a positive way.

Ron also returned to writing, recording, and publishing songs in 2011, with several making it to the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hit Singles chart. One of them, his song “Livin’ In a Small Town” made it to #2 on Billboard in 2015, only behind The Rolling Stones’ 50-year anniversary re-release of “Satisfaction.” Another hit, “Touch the Moon,” was considered for a Grammy nomination in 2017. In addition, there are numerous articles in various music industry publications praising Ron’s music.

Join us on a guided hike of Seven Bends State Park, less than a mile from the entrance to Muse Vineyards guided by David V. Brotman, Executive Director of the Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River.

Tickets are FREE, but required. Register HERE.

The hike will be about 2 hours in length, mostly in shade, and of easy to moderate difficulty. (There are some moderately steep hills.) The group will stay together for a wide range of nature interpretations and will see a few areas of historical and cultural significance. We recommend you wear hiking shoes and bring water. We will be safe distancing among groups.

Your guide will be David V. Brotman, Executive Director of the Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River, with whom we are proud to partner on this program. Their mission is to keep the North Fork of the Shenandoah River clean, healthy, and beautiful through advocacy, community action, education, and science. David has broad experience in environmental fieldwork, business, conflict resolution, and education. Times spent in the Shenandoah Valley as a boy and young man — camping, hiking, fishing, and canoeing — are the very roots of his environmental interests and his love of nature. David is a natural public educator and has taught all age groups in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. Subjects have included Chesapeake Bay ecology, Wild Edibles, and many more. In Yellowstone NP, he trained citizen scientists in field methods.
