Why hire Ron Gartner & His Band?
Las Vegas showman, Ron Gartner & His Band, are available for your event. He's performed at Harrahs Casino, Feinsteins NY, and the finest country clubs across America.
From Sinatra, Dean, Darin, and Bennett---to the 50's and 60's sounds of Jersey Boys/Frankie Valli, Frankie Avalon, Neil Sedaka, and The Temptations, Four Tops, and James Brown.
Great shows---great dance music---from one fantastic entertainer who has been profiled in the NY Times, LA Times, PBS, and CBS.
If you love The Rat Pack to Motown, this is the entertainer for your next event.
With piano, trio, combo, or Big Band, Ron Gartner means Great Entertainment!
As a kid in LA, while his friends listened to the Beach Boys and Jan & Dean, Ron Gartner decided "surf-music" wasn't his bag. Falling in love in the 60's with great music from Philadelphia and Detroit, he was "almost" a star, performing at the Whisky A-go-go when Johnny Rivers was there, and at PJ's with Trini Lopez. When the Motown contract didn't happen, he put his voice on the shelf for years, until opportunity knocked. Moving to NY, he resurrected his career in 2000 with a free show at senior center, and, today performs at the nation's finest venues.
From Feinsteins (Michael Feinstein's nightclub) in New York, to casinos, performing art centers, country clubs, and outdoor concerts, this multi-talented singer belts them out like Sammy and Bobby Darin used to--dances like James Brown and Chubby Checker--and leaves the crowds screaming for more.
It looks like saving his voice for those many years, while pursuing other business, is the key for a second career. The NY Times, LA Times, PBS, and CBS, to name a few, have all found his story fascinating.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 30 - 240 minutes
Venues that want a throwback Vegas-style show, like having Michael Buble' perform, hire Ron Gartner & His Band. He has a theater show called "Scotch, Soul & Rock 'n' Roll"--great tunes from the guys like Neil Sedaka, Paul Anka, Bobby Rydell, and Frankie Avalon, plus all of the great R&B soul songs from the Tempations, Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, and Smokey Robinson are featured in this fun show---plus, songs from The Rat Pack.--a perfect show for Casino and Vegas events. It can be tweaked to accomodate any audience. (if dancing only is wanted, Ron can do that too!)
Whether with his big band, smaller combos, trios, even his keyboardist (and as some venues request, digitally recorded background shows) no entertainer in America can sing a Sinatra song, AND, a James Brown song in the same show--except Ron Gartner.
