Playing for Tommy Ellison, Ron recorded several CD’s such as “Trying to Get to Heaven”, “Let’s get Closer” “Christian Lady” “Let this be a Lesson” “Out on the Ocean sailing” and so many others to name. His playing for Tommy Ellison allowedhim to travel all over the world lifting up the name of Jesus through song and was inducted into the Quartet Gospel Music Hall of Fame with Tommy Ellison & The 5 Singing Stars for his playing. While still playing for Tommy Ellison, Ron received acall from the man himself known for singing –“Under the Boardwalk” and the famous song “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” from the well known movie Home Alone known as “Bill Pinkney” and The Original Drifters to play drums for his legendary group.
