Ronnie Montrose was a true pioneer of the electric guitar and is highly revered amongst fans as well as so many iconic rock musicians of the 70’s and 80’s.. Many consider Ronnie the American “Beck-Clapton-Page” all rolled into one. His career began in the early 1970’s when he recorded and toured with artists such as the Edgar Winter Group, Van Morrison, and Boz Scaggs. In 1973 he formed the band MONTROSE under his own nemesis featuring singer Sammy Hagar, drummer Denny Carmassi, and bassist Bill Church. The press hailed the new band as “America’s answer to Led Zeppelin.” The first Montrose record produced by Ted Templeman is still widely considered one of the most influential rock albums of all time.
Ronnie Montrose Remembered (RMR)- On Tour presents a scaled down touring version of this highly successful show which produced back to back record sold-out shows during the 2016 and 2017 NAMM conventions. Fronted by the “Later” Montrose singer/frontman Keith St John, the band also features Mitch Perry of The Edgar Winter Group on guitar, Rudy Sarzo of Whitesnake / Quit Riot on bass and Matt Starr of Mr. Big on drums.
The band will perform songs from the first Montrose record featuring such hits as Rock Candy, Bad Motor Scooter, and Space Station #5 along with hits from the second Montrose record and hits from the Edgar Winter record which featured Ronnie Montrose such as Frankenstein and Freeride. The band will typically be joined by local rockstars coming out to jam on their favorite Montrose songs as ”RMR” creates a local press-worthy buzz wherever they travel to perform.
