Balancing classy, cool, creative, and wild, he brings exciting and irreplaceable sounds and movement to each event and performance, giving your guests and patrons an experience and an event and night to discuss. 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 the 1970s & 1980s Disco Funk Dance Grooves and Electro Soul & Boogie. This evolution led him to today's 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 Alcohol & Food. Known as Ethyl's “Consigliere of Cool,” Ronnie helped shape the sound and look of this 1970’s retro-themed Go-Go bar named “One of The Best Dance Bars in NYC” by NYC: The Official Guide.
