About
I have been singing, playing, writing and performing music for the last 40+ years. My parents, both Scottish immigrants, were influencial in my musical development. My mother was a professional singer and my father was a Bagpiper; both provided me with a strong foundation to where I am today.

Although I began as a drummer, my heart soon fell to the acoustic guitar, allowing me to create the melodic ballads that I am passionate about. As a result, I have recorded three CDs of my original songs.

Growing up in the 70's, I gained inspiration from artists such as Harry Chapin, Elton John, Jethro Tull and Pink Floyd, and I play a variety of these songs.

Today you'll find me performing throughout New England at numerous venues, including private parties, clubs and weddings.

I have recently appeared on Pararock TV and several local television programs to promote my original music.
I was also awarded '2014' video of the year for my original song "Pray for Me" on channel 3 in Worcester,Ma.

I use pre-recorded backing tracks in my performances that I create in my home studio . This gives me the sound of a full band without the cost and volume issues.

Thank you for stopping by My Page. I hope you enjoy my music!

He was an excellent performer. My guests enjoyed his music and thought he was great. I almost think he sounded better live than on the samples here at Gigmaaters.I would hire him again.

Ross was amazing; simply perfect. He showed up early, stayed late, and played incredible music with skills that you need to hear to fully appreciate. Everyone was so excited with his music and many people were asking me how to book him for their events. Ross's crowd IQ is amazing - he was able to read the diverse crowd and create such an amazing atmosphere. He knew exactly how the crowd was responding to different music as the night drew and kept it going. If you want a musician who is an expert in his craft, I HIGHLY recommend choosing Ross for your occasion. If I could give Ross six stars, he would be deserving. Well done, Ross!! I can’t wait to hire you again.

I can't praise Ross McGinnes & John enough for their performance at my husband's 40th birthday! They were phenomenal, professional & fun to work with. They met religiously to practice Pink Floyd songs. They played to background PF songs, so it was incredibly realistic & impressive. They were exceptional. It snowed 8 in. the day of, but they arrived 90 mins early to set-up, w/no problems. These guys ROCK. Plain & simple. They are THE BEST! They blew the roof off my house. They rocked my party and guests were blown away. My discerning husband said "They are awesome, they play better than Brit Floyd". If you want the BEST, hire Ross and John. They are phenomenal.

Ross and his partner Al played at my husband's 50th birthday party in CT this past weekend. Ross was a delight to work with from the beginning. He patiently answered all my questions, was extremely flexible the night of my party, and just has a pleasant demeanor overall. He and Al are very talented and every song they performed sounded great and the crowd loved them all. Their volume level is excellent as well...not too loud that makes it difficult to talk and hear. My husband and I are already talking about when we can hire Ross next!

Ross helped make our son's graduation party a great success. He was very prompt in responding to us. He kept in contact with us the week leading up to the event. We had guests of all ages and everyone really enjoyed listening to him and are still talking about him. He has a great voice and plays a wide variety of music. He had some of our guest trying to hire him for their party but he was already booked. We will definitely be hiring him again in the future.

We had a national event that we put on for Ford Motor Company in our dealership, and Ross did great. We have over 125 people come through in about 4 hours and everyone really loved his music. I would hire them again if I am in need of music.
