Hi, my name is Ron Doster. I began my career as a vocalist and musician in the late 1960s while still in high school. I went on to study piano and jazz harmony at Boston’s New England Conservatory. I honed my abilities during the early 70s in and around the Boston area as well as in touring show bands visiting most of the state’s east of the Mississippi River before returning to New York City in 1979. My experience in New York and the surrounding area include stints as a solo performer in piano bars, cafes and restaurants, as well as booking work with several of the major orchestra agencies including Steven Scott, Ken James and Hank Lane. I have extensive experience as a solo performer and a band leader. Over the years I've earned a reputation in the New York music community as a consummate professional, a dynamic performer and an ethical, fair-minded businessman. I take on each performance with the desire to give my clients and their guests an event to remember. At present, I book engagements in the New York City area, Long Island, Westchester County, Rockland County, Eastern Connecticut, and New Jersey. I'm located in Nassau County, Long Island and not opposed to traveling further with appropriate compensation for the time and travel expenses involved. I have an extensive repertoire that includes jazz standards of the American Songbook, classic rock and pop tunes from the 1950s through every decade to the present, Latin standards, blues and classic show tunes. I'm comfortable playing solo piano at house parties or catered events, singing requests or even accompanying guests who wish to sit in or have a sing along. I'm equally adept at performing dance music with one of my electronic keyboards that feature bass and drum accompaniment to my singing and playing. With a repertoire that spans the music of Sinatra, Elvis, The Beatles, Elton John, Barry White, Billy Joel, Jason Mraz and Bruno Mars, just to name a few, I'm ready to play the right music for your occasion and keep your guests entertained. Whether you envision an elegant pianist at a baby grand piano singing Cole Porter and George Gershwin, or a one man band keeping the dance floor busy, I know you'll be very happy with the ambiance I can bring to your special occasion.

Birthday Party (Adult) - 2017-12-10

Ron was great to work with from the date of booking through the end of the party. This was my first use of gigmasters and I was not at all sure what to expect. I could not have been more delighted....
