    Ron Holloway is one of the busiest tenor
   saxophonist's on today's music scene in any genre!
  He has been touring internationally as a member of
  Susan Tedeschi's Band but still finds time to
  appear as a frequent special guest of the Allman
  Brothers Band, Warren Haynes & Gov't
  Mule, the Derek Trucks Band, Taj Mahal &
  Little Feat. Most recently Ron performed
  with Peter Frampton, Bruce Hornsby,
  Bernie Worrell and Col. Bruce Hampton
  at the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam !!!

   Tenor sax giant Sonny Rollins said of Holloway; Ron
  is a very fine saxophone player. Not only is he very               
  dedicated and intelligent, he's got his own original 
  approach. He doesn't sound like all the other guys and
  that's saying a whole lot. I feel good that my legacy is in
  the hands of Ron and people like him. It's very gratifying.
      In the Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz, renowned
   jazz critic Ira Gitler describes Ron Holloway as
   bear-down hard bopper who can blow authentic 
   R&B and croon a ballad with warm blue feeling. While true,
   this only begins to touch upon the versatility of the
   tenor saxophonist! Ron travelled the world as a
   member of legendary trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie's
   Quintet from June of 1989 until Gillespie's passing on
                                                         January 6th, 1993.
    I used to work at a nightclub in DC called Desperados.
  Stevie Ray Vaughn was playing at Despo's- he had
  pretty much just started Double Trouble. Local saxman
  Ron Holloway was at the club that night. Ron has
  played with just about everybody over the years and
  during a break asked Stevie if he could sit in. Stevie
  Ray looked a little skeptical and said what do you want
  to play? Ron asked; do you know any Hendrix? The 
  next set was the two of them blasting away on nothing
  but Hendrix tunes trading leads between guitar and sax.
  Just one of those magic moments!     Rob Henry
