In addition to his turntable and microphone, Ronnie is known to get the crowd going with his wide range of world percussion instruments including: congas, bongos, djembe & more.
Starting early in his DJ career, Ronnie’s live sets relied heavily on the sounds of 1960s & 1970s Motown, Stax, New Orleans R&B and Philly Soul mixed with Deep Funk, Latin Soul and rare Soundtrack Grooves. Over time Ronnie expanded his live DJ sets by adding the four-on the-floor rhythm of 1970s & 1980s Disco Funk Dance Grooves along with Electro Soul & Boogie. This evolution led him to todays more contemporary modern sounds including Nu-Disco, House, Indie Dance, Chill Out and World Beats.
Ronnie has hosted several club DJ residencies in New York City, including Ethyl’s Food & Alcohol on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Known as the “Consigliere of Cool”, Ronnie helped shaped the sound and look for this 1970’s retro-themed Go-Go bar which was named “One of The Best Dance Bars in NYC” by NYC: The Official Guide.
