Ron Allers and His Rhythm Masters

Ron Allers and His Rhythm Masters


8563 ~ Heartless Woman
8564 ~ My Darling

According to Hubie Briar :
We have known and been friends with Ron for many years. He performed many times on our Green Valley Jamboree TV-3 WKZO and WHZO radio programs. He was always received well and would be on again as time permitted.

I remember when Ron came to me with the idea of making a record of the two songs he had written. We both were excited but didn't know where to begin. So I bought a couple of recorders and made a bedroom into a recording studio.

First we layed down a track with Ron's voice and the Gibson flat top. Then I played the bass, electric guitar, snare drum and tambourine. We were both pleased with what we had done.
Then we took the master tape over to Raebets Productions in Millwood and he pressed the 45's of "Heartless Woman" and "My Darlin.'" Then Ron and the Rhythm Masters started getting gigs from places that heard the records.

He kept busy with the music and working at the Gibson Guitar Company.
He is still active with special gigs here on Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Ron Allers was a Gibson Guitar employee for 22 years before
he opened his own shop in 1985, The Guitar Doctor, offering
repairs of all types of stringed instruments
