Ron Locurto Performance

Ron LoCurto has been a student of the guitar for more than 25 years. Cutting his teeth on heavy, guitar-driven rock—and studying jazz and classical guitar in college—he has forged his own unique style that encompasses all types of music from around the globe. Some career high points include recording Kaleidoscope (a fusion CD with some of the area's best musicians), performing with avant-garde drummer Bobby Previte and his Voodoo West ensemble, and partnering with Ravi Padmanabha to release West of East (an album of acoustic guitar and tabla that fuses the traditions of western jazz and eastern classical music). LoCurto was also chosen to perform as a finalist in the first North American Rock Guitar Competition, and recently took second place in the 2006 Competition.

Currently, LoCurto is busy performing in support of his latest instrumental-trio recording, Pattern Seeking Primates, where he leads the group through eight original songs and one amazing cover of Bjork's “Human Behavior.” Check LoCurto out on the web at www.ronlocurto.com.
