Ron Howard & Cruisin’ was founded by lead singer and saxophone player Ron Howard more than 30 years ago, and the band’s wide repertoire of musical styles and a love to play the Lake Erie Island area and Port Clinton keeps them coming back.
The veteran Cleveland group that includes Bill Terry, Doug Cowell and Dave Kozma has been drawing crowds in Port Clinton, Put-in-Bay and Kelleys Island for a long time, and this time around they will find themselves in one of their happy places, The District Stage in downtown Port Clinton on Friday, Aug. 11 at 8 p.m.
If you miss them, don’t despair. As one of the most popular regional bands, they’ll be playing nearby again, and very soon. That includes a gig on Thursday, Aug. 31 at 7 p.m. on The District Stage.
The band’s success can be attributed to five dedicated guys who have lived and breathed the music of Motown and classic rock and roll. They can delight audiences with the hits of the ‘50s through the ‘80s — and some current hit songs — with style, flair and a sound that is second only to the artists who debuted those massive musical hits.
