The latter years: A long lasting Flirt and flirting with other bands, duo's and solo.
But from 1984 I joined another band, first playing the bass-guitar. After some personel-changes I asked Flirt bassist Johan Korringa (former Balloon, Cobra) to join and the name FLIRT was re-used ... Flirt 2, so to say.
Flirt with Erik Zandbergen and Paul van Veen and later on drummer Hans Dijksterhuis played many-a-gig. In the beginning some original songs were played, but the band became more and more a cover band, with a very varied repertoire.
Mid 90's FLIRT released a CD and end 90's some changes resulted in Arjan Bruinsma on keys, still in the band till now. FLIRT still is playing up till today !!!
I was asked to join Rudy Bennet & New Motion (former: SH Band) as singer/guitarist, playing with well known Dutch popsinger Rudy Bennet (former member of the Motions, Galaxy Lin, and more). Even made it -once- to national TV on the prime time show DWDD.
Newfield & Cook was an effort to combine old and new. Peter Cook played in Dutch well known duo Greenfield & Cook in the seventies, that had some hits. A follow-up-version was Newfield & Cook, also playing original material Ronn and Peter wrote . The duo recorded/published one EP-CD, but Peter preferred persuiing a continuation of his former solo-career, so the duo stopped.
In 2012 I was substitute-guitarist in Beauty and the Beats and later on I was asked to join the band permanently. After a few very nice gigs (few of them in Spain), the founder of the band disbanned te group so this band B&tB stopped after only one and half year.
I then formed the band NEW PAGE, with lady-singer of B&tB, Fabienne Dallau. The band has Peter Seilberger (former Tee Set) on keys, Ruud Saelman on drums and first Marcel van Ee, later Johan Korringa on bass with whom I played in several bands before.
MIROJO started out as a session for one or two occasions.
However, MIROJO was asked in several other places too, so it "sort of became a band", again Ronn playing together with Michael Eschauzier (former Catapult, Shocking Blue) and -again- Johan Korringa on bass. MIROJO plays on reguler -small- gigs.
Singer Rosy Pereira (former Rosy & Andres) wanted to work together a bit and this resulted in the duo : RONN & ROSY,
having a gig now and then.
Together with Michael Eschauzier I played PITCHBENDERS.
This group started as an alternative for MIROJO with bassplayer Paolo Grobben when Johan could not make it. However, this formation too evolved into a more or less regular line up, sometimes accompanied by Ruud Saelman on drums.
Last, but not least, I perform SOLO as well. I quite enjoy this way of working: just singing and some guitar playing, but accompanied by nice backing tracks with the rest of the music. Many well known covers, but also beautifull unknown songs I perform, as well as some songs of my own.
