By The Lords Grace I have been blessed with musicians who are willing to perform at short notice, so whomever is available to play is now part of The Hot Mess, playing Rhythm N’ Blues, Doo-Wop, Jazz Standards, and original music that I am humbled to perform and play. The list of The Hot Mess is as follows: Rajiv Laul, Louis Ledbetter, and Rick who’s last name escapes me at this moment. I love, appreciate you and am grateful to God for you all

Privately
I am a singer/songwriter who performs original music, Doo-Wop, Rhythm & Blues as well as Jazz or anything that resonates with me personally. I enjoy all types of music, but have found myself inspired by “era” music of predominately 50’s and 60’s ( including, but not excluding other decades as well). I also perform and collaborate with other artists in my field and pursue work for project based music (exp. Exhibitionist, Party Dozen) to keep the “ Jazz mind set” or “live” art form from dying, and to carry the torch for the great pioneers who paved the way prior to us by making true and genuine music for all to remember to grow and enjoy. May Triumph over adversity be Gods Glory Forever* -Ronnie B
