SOMETIMES RONNIE SINGS HAUNTINGLY ABOUT A MAN WHO LED A SAD LIFE TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY -- His name is Ronnie Verge. He's young and intense. He's often nervous. He smokes from 1% to two packs a day. He wears his reddish brown hair long and shaggy. He also has a big, shaggy mustache. His brown eyes -- hard to find behind all that hair -- have many changing expressions, reflecting his' deep' inner feelings, ranging from warm, outgoing and friendly to sad and frustrated. Ronnie is a one-man show who performs Wednesday through Saturday nights in · the Mediterranean- style cocktail lounge at the new- Olive Tree Coffee House, Pacific Coast Highway at Loynes Drive. He sings and alternates on two acoustical guitars, including one with 12 strings that creates full, rich sounds. There are many guitar-vocalists entertaining in local restaurants and clubs. Ronnie is something special. He is so intense, so talented and so poetic that he LOB ONE DOLLAR OFF ANY LARGE PIZZA OF YOUR CHOICE ONE COUPON PER ORDER ENDS JAN. 31, 1975 WHAT A FUN TIME YOU WILL HAVE PIZZA · SPAGHETTI R A V I O L I .

Fri-Sat-Sun 11 a.m. Closed Tuesday quickly builds a rapport with his listeners. He com- ;; municates with them in the style of today's young ^ , people, expressing their feelings of frustration, their » joys and sorrows as he sings of love and sadness atid^ all the changing patterns of their lives, some distinct,"TM some meanings so subtle they can be expressed only in a ilwfSb. song. · a « As I listened to Ronnie the other night at the Olive_j Tree, I decided he is not a great guitarist. Nor does lie have a great, soaring voice. But when he puts hi;sa guitar and voice together, magic happens. He becomes TM a superb entertainer, because of the way he combines his songs and his feelings for life and people. I would rather listen to an.entertainer like Ronnie, than a great guitarist or a great vocalist with technical expertise but no soul. Ronnie's version of Mr. Bojangles is a prime example of his artistry. He sings it a slower pace than ; usual. By slowing it down, he is able. to. put more feeling into it. It becomes a song of haunting sadness, especially when he holds certain notes for a long time .· in his high register. Ronnie is able 'to make such a change in a song with confidence because he is a composer and lyricist as well as a performer. : During an interview, I asked Ronnie to tell me what he's feeling when he sings Mr. Bojangles. The ;· song, written by Jeff Walker of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, has been popular for several years. Ronnie particularly likes the versions performed by Walker and Sammy Davis Jr. "When I sing it," he explained, "I try to tell the story of a man who led a very sad life trying to make people happy." He said Mr. Bojangles isn't a song about Bill (Bojangles) Robinson, the tap dancer who was on stage and in movies several decades ago. Ronnie said he isn't sure how much of what he knows (Continued next page) DART DINNII SPtCIAlS MOM. BHF-KAOOI . ItU STKOOAHOF . WID. ROAST FUMim. . THUB5. IIAISID SHOXT II8S . fir I.
