NYC jazz guitarist, Acoustic Guitar Magazine Contributor/Writer, Broadway musician Ron Jackson is a 6+7 string master guitarist with 8 CD's of his own. He has performed on Broadway for 20 years in many shows such as "Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk", “Rent,” "Fosse", "Avenue Q", "Shuffle Along" and "Disaster". Having toured in over 20 countries, Ron is well established on the international jazz scene. Ron's style of guitar playing and composing is a blend of jazz, soul, R+B, pop, as well as Caribbean and Latin, having been influenced by his Philippine roots. Ron's band will provide you with the best music for your wedding, company event or party and your concert, club or festival.

Ron has 5 jazz guitar albums to his credit as a leader: A Guitar Thing and Thinking of You on Muse Records, Song For Luis - a duo with Rufus Reid on Mastermix Records, Concrete Jungle - co-led with bassist Nicki Parrott on Airmen Records, and The Dream I Had on Roni Music.

Branching out stylistically, Ron has 2 new CD's on his Roni Music Label. Burning Gums and Flubby Dubby, Ron's new CD with his Hammond organ group was recorded live and perfectly showcases his soul-jazz originals and arrangements of popular tunes. The album features Kyle Koehler on Hammond and Otis Brown III on drums with special guests Don Braden on tenor saxophone and Bruce Williams on alto. Giving it that special touch, the album was produced by Ron's mentor, the late soul-jazz and acid jazz pioneer Melvin Sparks. Check out Ron's new all acoustic guitar recording "Akustik InventYours"

"For a solo instrumental jaunt through acoustic music from around the world, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better starting point than Akusitk InventYours"
