Band: Ron Sunshine
Singer, songwriter, harmonica handler Ron Sunshine (Born in Denver, living in NYC for 22 years, now relocated to Eastern PA) has been performing all around the world with his band Full Swing since 1990, releasing five CDs along the way. The current lineup includes saxophonist Craig Dreyer, drummer Jason Pharr, bassist Tom Pietrycha, pianist Matt Ray, trumpeter Kenny Rampton, and guitarist Al Street, often joined by ace vocalists Queen Esther, Sarah Tolar, Aria Hendricks, and others.
Sunshine can also be heard performing in clubs with his jazz organ quartet, as well as crooning at the fabled Rainbow Room with his new 10-piece big band--and everything in between. The mixture of music has been perfect for hundreds of private and corporate parties, as well as festivals, concerts and casinos.
With his soulful mixture of catchy original songs, jazz standards and blues/R&B classics, the Ron and the band continue to win new followers on their travels, featured along the way on CNN, BET, NBC, Fox, BBC, and other international television, as well as numerous nationally released compilation CDs, books, films and radio. They have dazzled audiences from New York to Los Angeles, from Paris to Stockholm, from Bermuda to Red Bank.
