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.

CANCELED!

A Morning Apart for Reflection.

Tickets are required! Purchase them HERE.

“Open your eyes and see, open your mouth and taste.” (a portion of Psalm 34:8 The Message Translation).

Leaders:
• Sally Cowal, proprietor of Muse Vineyards (along with her spouse Robert Muse) since 2003.
• Rev. Anne Findlay-Chamberlain, pastor at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, Woodstock, VA

We live in a fast-paced world where time is of the essence, food is delivered at drive-through windows, and the words “fast” and “food” run together as we speed about our lives. We fast-forward through our days without taking the time to stop and savor what is happening right here and right now. When we take time to be attentive, “we discover the interconnectedness between spiritual and material realities: we learn to see the extraordinary in the ordinary.” (Gisela Kreglinger)

This morning apart provides an alternative pace in a place of beauty where we will have an opportunity to reflect on the deepest parts of ourselves as we:
• Get to know each other
• Experience walking amidst the vines in this season of the year (we will walk a short distance, and stand for up to one hour)
• Discover the importance of terroir – the role of soil, topography, and climate that influence the unique tastes and flavors of each wine
• Learn about wine-tasting in the tasting room
• Taste and savor several different wines
• Share our reflections

Tickets include a light continental breakfast and wine tasting.

Purchase tickets HERE!
