Update on Ron Hacker (late October 2006)
It's official, Ron will be on the new release, Orphans, by Tom Waits. Check it out on the label website, where Hack's described as "San Francisco’s white trash blues icon." He's on the Brawlers CD of the three-disk box set, new song called Low-Down, described by Waits himself as "raw garage." What could be better? Release date November 21. Scroll down right here for big Hack-Waits photo.

Don't forget to come catch Hack at The Saloon on Saturday November 25 neither. Biscuits & Blues too that Thanksgiving weekend, Friday November 24, 4-7.

(Labor Day 2006)
Ron reports feeling real well these days following an early morning heart attack a few weeks back, minimal damage to the pump, the doc says -- and Hack's started gigging. Got a trip to Europe in the works with gigs in Holland (Amsterdam), Belgium and la France, and he'll be back in San Francisco for the Thanksgiving weekend: an early-evening gig at Biscuits & Blues on Friday; and Saturday night, November 25, at The Saloon. Yes.

Ron Hacker is a pure bluesist who uses vintage guitars for a classic driving sound, with slide and without. His Back Door Man CD (his third, or maybe fourth all-told), on the local Saloon Recordings label, is one of the best blues releases of recent times, with a gorgeous mix of originals and covers. His brand-new Burnin'? You might say it's even better.

That this man is not famous is in our humble option a farkakte travesty

You think we just happen to like Ron because he's local?
