Most Recent Castaway - 29th April, 2016
Ron E. Beck (2016)

Visit Website

Drummer/singer/songwriter Ron. E. Beck grew up in a large musical household in Omaha, Nebraska.

Ron E. B. first moved the the Bay Area at age 18, and got busy playing drums on the world's foremost stages with Tower of Power, Herbie Hancock, The Temptations, Bobby Womack, John Lee Hooker, Etta James and Santana--among too many others to list.

For decades, Ron E. B.'s soulful singing and his songwriting were in the background--but no longer. He's just added his fourth CD to his growing back catalog (following the wryly named "Baby Boomer"), featuring both of those aspects--as well, of course, as the drumming for which he initially became famous.
