CLOSED SUNDAYS 6101 CHERRY AVE., North Long Beach -423-9750 (Continued from previous page) about the modem Mr. Bojangles is myth and how much is fact. He believes Mr. Bojangles was a tap dancer who was nearly always drunk and often landed in jail. He ^vas a non-conformist who became disillusioned with his life in America and may now live in Russia. Born in Maiden, Mass., a town near Boston, Ronnie showed so much singing ability as a boy that at the age of 8 he sang in an Episcopal church choir. In junior high school, he sang in choral groups and studied drums. When he was 15, he joined a high school vocal group, the Del Vardos, which sang at hops and on the radio. He didn'l graduate from high school, dropping out to pursue a career in music. About 10 years ago he went to San Francisco. After working for a time m stage management and Lighting, he taught himself io play electric bass and joined a band called The Young Men From Boston. Later it changed its name to Maze. Ronnie worked with the group for four years, becoming its leader, as well as lead vocalist. . · ' Then, abruptly, he retired from music completely . and became club manager at the Pier 11 in Costa Mesa. That was back in the late 1960s when many young musicians became caught up in the drug culture. "1 couldn't stand seeing what those drugs were doing to my friends," he recalled. "So I stayed out of music for about a year and a half." Then his love for music took him into a new direction. He taught himself to play the acoustical guitar. He learned fast. Within six months, he was good enough to start performing as a solist in Southern California restaurants and clubs. He's been at it for four years now and has enjoyed every minute of it. When I asked Ronnie to tell me why he likes the acoustical guitar so much, he quickly gave me the following reasons: 1) It's well-suited as an aid to composing the words and music for his songs. 2) It's easy to carry around and doesn't require complicated stage electronics; 3) The sound of an acoustical guitar is softer apd more beautiful than a regular guitar; 4) It's perfect for a solist, eliminating the complicatiqns of working with other people in a band; 5) It helps him bring pleasure to his audiences; 6) Playing the guitar brings him personal pleasure and happiness. Ronnie has written many songs, including about a dozen he performs regularly at the Olive Tree. Some Vivianne wears a different one every night such singalong favorites as Peg 0' My Heart, Shanty Town, Let the Rest of the World Go By, Put Your Arms Around Me, Little Brown Organist-vocalist Vivianne Crist is shown with some of the wigs she wears while performing at the Village Inn, 2099 Belfflower Blvd. She has dozens of different styles and colors. She plays many newer hits as well as Jug, Bye Bye Blackbird and scores more -Staff Photo MM (I IB ..

Others have happier, upbeat, moods. Among them are Beautiiul Friends, Late From the Fair, Don't Be Taking Life for Granted, Sawdust and Tears, 0 Little One, Your Words, Testing Life's End and Nostalgia. . Sometimes Ronnie finds it difficult to put all the parts of a song together, because some won't fit. Other times he composes quickly and surely. "Sometimes," he said, "the ideas come so easily that I have the feeling I'm not the composer. My pencil seems to write automatically by itself without any help from me." Ronnie chats in a friendly style with his audiences, exchanging ideas and encouraging requests. He hands out printed lists containing the titles of 107 songs in'his repertoire. They reflect many moods, from old to: new, such-as The Nigfit They Drove Old Dixie ~Down,:.Puff the Magic Dragon, Country Roads, My Sweet Lord, Sunshine, Bom Free, Light My Fire, He's Got the Whole World in His Hands, \ 7 ello\v Brick Road, I Believe in Music, The Most Beautiful Girl and his; own compositions (which he modestly placed at the end of the list. .
