Not only was Ron responsive as soon as I contacted him, he showed up before he was scheduled to begin performing and delivered exactly what we were looking for. Would definitely recommend Ron and use
I hired Ron for my 40th birthday party. He was a big hit! Had a great playlist that appealed to the vaired ages at the party. Was professional, on time and very easy to work with. Thank you Ron!!!!!
Very enjoyable listening !! He is very personable, he even let one of the kids have a little fun picking the guitar . We all really enjoyed him !!
I would have him again and again!! Super
Performer super talented loved his personality!!
So happy we had him for our event!
Ron Joseph did a great job at our party. It was windy and cold out, but he sang great. We asked him to sing 80s hits.
Played a broad range of music to appeal to everyone's tastes.
One thing is for darned sure, Ron Joseph can pull together guitar licks and lyrics that will leave you wanting more. No stone was left unturned as he played notes with heart-wrenching passion from several different genre's and eras. Fun was had by all generations at my husband's 60th. Thanks, Ron, for making it special!
Ron Joseph arrived on time and fully prepared to perform. He set up and was ready to perform at our agreed upon time. The most impressive part of his performance was that he selected music based on the tastes of the audience. The event was a great success, do in large part to his performance.
Ron Joseph performed at our community center monthly luncheon on April 12, 2016. This was his first performance at the Center and the participants loved him! He is a great vocalist with a popular selection of music, and they enjoyed the fact that he wasn't so loud that they couldn't visit while enjoying the music. During the course of the luncheon, several of our participants were inspired to get up and dance, which is always a good indication of a successful performance. We are definitely adding him to our list of regular entertainers at the Center!
Our Chapter, composed mostly of 60, 70, 80 and 90 year old seniors felt young again as Ron played some music from the "Oldies." A few even got up on their feet, his music wouldn't let them sit still. He is truly the very best and for sure we will invite him again. Thanks Ron. We love you. Paulette Meeks, President AARP Chapter 3912, Humble, Texas
Ron entertained for my husband's 60th surprise birthday party. When my husband arrived his jaw dropped and then he did a double face palm. Ron started playing "Celebrate" and it was just so perfect. Ron did all of our songs (60's, 70's) perfectly and performed in a small space (our historic Galveston home). He is very talented and people loved the fact that he wasn't so loud that you couldn't have a conversation. We would definitely hire him again!
We were very happy with having Ron perform at our housewarming party. He did an excellent job and made the party more festive and lively. Our guests complimented on his performance and singing. He was the perfect choice for the party and we would definitely use Ron again for future needs.
Ron Joseph did an amazing job! The music was great people were singing along and everyone attending the party had nothing but good things to say. Will have him again and definitely recommend!
Ron and his vocalist performed at one of our organization's receptions at the House of Blues. Fantastic. No flaws in his preparation, timing, willingness to work with us, etc. Great selection of songs! Great vocals! Everyone loved the band. Really helped make the whole event a success! Thanks!
Very personable and professional. His guitar was wonderful and everybody had a great time listing to him.
I highly recommend Ron Joseph, I had never seen him preform. Did I hit the jackpot with this. I was booking for a corporate party. Everyone there was very pleased. Clay's will be asking him to return. For future events. As I will also pass his name around.
Ron recently performed at our Volunteer Appreciation Dinner for over 170 people and I have been hearing SO MANY compliments everyday since(it has been four days of hearing "THAT GUY WAS GREAT" and "Where did you find him!?") All of the guests said he really set the tone for the evening and was extremely entertaining and fun to watch- while enjoying their dinner and conversation.(the event was a large sit-down, multiple course dinner)
We hope to have Ron at one of our events again in the future! Thanks for being so professional and entertaining!

I started playing guitar in the Houston area in 1969. My next move was hitting the road with bands for the next ten years gaining much experience and repertoire building. During this time I added saxophone and vocals to my music study and performances. After playing Las Vegas, Atlanta, and Galveston with various show bands, I returned to Houston to ride the disco wave which was going on in the vibrant nightlife at the time. The best candidate for a 60's - 70's music show is one who has actually lived it the first time around. During the 80's music technology emerged that allowed bands to harness more sounds with only a few key personnel. This technology is an integral part of my sound and makes it possible for a single entertainer or a small group to arrive at the sound of a larger ensemble.
Additional Booking Notes
The Ron Joseph show is completely self-contained.
Lights and sound reinforcement are included.
