Ron (Dr. Ron) Roskowske has been playing professionally for over thirty years. Ron first started with the Macks Creek Band in the late 1970’s, playing clubs and concerts throughout the Midwest and opening for acts such as Pure Prairie League, The Outlaws, Greg Allman, Black Oak Arkansas, and Grinderswitch. After recording an album, the group disbanded in the early eighties. Ron went on and studied jazz guitar and composition at Webster University under Steve Schenkel and Peter Mayer and started a career in music education. He teaches today at Kennedy Catholic High School in West St. Louis County and at Mozingo Music.
Ron counts among his many influences blues-rock guitarists such as Duane Allman, Eric Clapton, and Robben Ford, and urban blues guitarists like BB, Albert, and Freddie King along with Albert Collins and Otis Rush. Jazz influences include Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall, Sonny Rollins, and Miles Davis.
Ron also has played and recorded with local Catholic praise and worship artists such as Adam Bitter and Karl Zimmerman.
